LENEXA, Kan. (AP) — Three Kansas school districts are getting a total of $220,000 in federal funds to replace or rework older diesel school buses.

The regional office of the Environmental Protection Agency said in a release Monday that the Turner, Altoona-Midway and Maize school districts will get the funds to replace or retrofit 11 older diesel buses. The EPA says older diesel engines emit large amounts of pollutants.

Maize is getting $120,000 for six buses, Turner gets $80,000 for four buses and Altoona-Midway receives $20,000 for one bus.

The EPA says the awards are part of more than $7 million in rebates to replace or retrofit 400 older diesel school buses throughout the U.S.
