School buses have a tremendous impact on the environment and overall health of kids. Fortunately, there are several grants available that can help schools and districts transition to cleaner and more efficient school buses. The upcoming $125M MI Clean Bus funding will provide additional financial support to accelerate the adoption of electric and low-emission school buses in the state.
