EPA Logo

Madison is one of nine school divisions in Virginia to receive U.S.. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) funding to replace up to five school buses.  The announcement was released on March 8, 2018.  Only 141 school divisions across the United States received the funding in 32 states.  The designated $8.7 million national effort targets new and retrofitted buses in order to reduce pollutants that are linked to health problems such as asthma.  See the national list here:  https://www.epa.gov/cleandiesel/clean-diesel-rebates-issued-2012-2017#recipients
