Hall to share in millions for funding EV buses

Nine Georgia school districts, including Hall County’s, are receiving funding in the latest round of federal grants for electric powered buses.

The systems will receive part of $900 million being allocated nationwide by the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) nationwide for clean bus funding. The move is a push towards electric buses in an effort to reduce greenhouse gas pollution and expand clean vehicles, according to the AJC.

Hall County’s share will be $625,000. Hall’s is the only school system in northeast Georgia getting any of the money.
