Description In 2017, the U.S. Department of Justice entered into a settlement with Volkswagen that requires the automaker to pay $2.7 billion into an Environmental Mitigation Trust. Washington State is eligible for $112.7 million from the settlement. This plan provides an overview of how the funds can be used, eligible project categories, projected reductions in emissions, health impacts, and the approach to involve the public.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
