NACAA and NASEO Launch VW Settlement Clearinghouse

September 11, 2017 – NACAA and the National Association of State Energy Officials (NASEO) have jointly launched the NASEO & NACAA Volkswagen Settlement Clearinghouse,  which is an online resource for state and local governments as they develop plans and implement projects under the Volkswagen (VW) settlement’s $2.9 billion Environmental Mitigation Trust.  The clearinghouse can be accessed at http://vwclearinghouse.org/.  The associations have sent out a press release announcing this new resource.  The NASEO & NACAA VW Clearinghouse is a collaborative program of the two associations to support their state and local members as they consider and select eligible projects and investment strategies under the VW settlement. The Clearinghouse provides information, tools and resources to assist state and local agencies to develop strategies under the settlement that will reduce mobile source emissions; support the alternative fuels market; and further environmental, public health, economic development and energy goals. Because this information may be of value to others outside of the NASEO and NACAA memberships as well, the VW Clearinghouse will be publicly accessible.  Please check out the website and keep in mind that NACAA and NASEO will continue to update and add to it.
