Freight Transportation Fuel Efficiency Program (FTFEP)

The Freight Transportation Fuel Efficiency Program (FTFEP) is an application-based grant program that provides rebates to retrofit existing heavy-duty trucks and trailers registered and plated in Newfoundland and Labrador, to reduce fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. This includes anti-idling equipment (e.g., auxiliary power units) and aerodynamic technologies (e.g., trailer skirts to reduce fuel consumption).

The FTFEP will be implemented over three fiscal years (2019/20-2021/22) by the Department of Municipal Affairs and Environment (MAE). This Program is supported by a total of $3.2 million in joint provincial and federal funding through the Low Carbon Economy Leadership Fund, with $1.73 million from the Provincial Government and $1.47 million from the Federal Government.

Applications for the FTFEP will be accepted beginning March 15, 2019. More information on the application process, including eligibility criteria, can be found in the below documents. Please note that applicants require pre-approval prior to the purchase and installation of eligible technologies.

For more information on the FTFEP, contact MAE by phone at (709) 729-1394 or by email at
