South Shore Clean Cities and the Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission (NIRPC) want to help your community mitigate barriers to adopting alternative fuels and advanced technology vehicles, and create policies that support petroleum and vehicle emission reductions. 


Apply today to participate in this program! We will be accepting applications until Friday, May 30, 2014

 Natural Gas Roundtable

consumers to learn of current and planned fueling stations, state and 

federal incentives, natural vehicles, and more.
