LEWES, Del. (AP) - State officials are celebrating a federal grant aimed at helping Delaware reduce air emissions from diesel engines.

Gov. Jack Markell will join all three members of Delaware’s congressional delegation in Lewes on Monday to announce the $975,000 grant from the Environmental Protection Agency.

Officials say the Delaware River and Bay Authority will use the money to upgrade the Cape May-Lewes Ferry with low-emission marine propulsion engines in order to reduce toxic air emissions.
