Fleet Financing Specialists

Clean Fleets Advocates (CFA) is an emissions management company with proven results in obtaining over $10 million in grant funds for diesel equipment owners facing future costly fleet upgrades. Our staff has over 100 years of combined experience serving Fortune 500 and smaller fleets with solutions to identify, apply for and manage equipment replacement. For the same reasons that fleet owners hire a CPA to do their taxes, our impressive list of publicly traded and privately held clients have selected us as their liaison to state agencies having oversight of grant funding and fleet regulatory compliance..


Professional Services

Under consent decrees filed in federal court, Volkswagen will pay $2.9 billion toward diesel equipment replacement or retrofit during 2018-2028. We believe the majority of the funds will be distributed between 2018-2020. We are engaged with state officials to select our clients' proposals to obtain VW grants for up to 100% of a retrofit device or up to 35% of of a new truck purchase that replaces an older truck from model years 1992-2009. We can successfully manage the “A to Z” of the data collection, application and post-award reporting to maximize the grant award while minimizing the headache and risk that can result from a poorly managed project by inexperienced personnel.

Fleet Data Collection

and Assessment

You cannot plan for what you don't know and the program has specific requirements based on vehicle use, weight, engine model year and geographic area of operation.



The most successful projects are ones that produce the best emission benefit for each grant fund dollar. We have specialists to calculate this where most clients lack that person in-house to do this successfully



Each state's BMP will be in development over the next few months and we are uniquely positioned to know who to ask and what to ask for

Selling the Project


Based on the preceding steps our goal is to obtain the maximum share of grant fund possible for our clients

Post-Grant Reporting


Our firm prepares and certifies regulatory reports for over 300 fleet owners each year and there will be regulatory filings required during the contract life. Incorrect filings could mean the agency requiring repayment of funds received
