Leaders who are planning for EV Charging Infrastructure (EVCI) can boost power to their projects with public and private grant funding. To find the most, look the widest!

Where to start

Charging facilities are to be provided for EV motorists nationwide. Do you know of an organization whose project would join the EVCI network? The NEVI program offers funds to 50 states!

Other places to look

As federal agencies allocate funds, further grant opportunities are available at the state level and through municipal government and private organizations.

ALTERNATIVE FUELS INFRASTRUCTURE GRANTS (AFIG)

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s AFIG program has two tracks. The first, Corridor Charging, funds infrastructure deployment along designated alternative fuel corridors. The second track, Community Charging, provides those funds for installation of EV charging and alternative fueling in locations on public roads, schools, parks, and in publicly accessible parking facilities.

CONGESTION MITIGATION AND AIR QUALITY IMPROVEMENT (CMAQ)

The US Department of Transportation (DOT) CMAQ program has $10 billion in funding to state DOT’s, local governments, and transit agencies for projects that will improve air quality and reduce traffic congestion. Eligible projects include:

    • Charging stations and Infrastructure for EV’s
    • Charging equipment as required for medium or heavy-duty zero emission vehicles.

GRANTS.GOV

The search function at Grants.GOV provides public access to timely information about funds available from all government agencies. Results can be filtered by keywords as well as source department, date range, and eligible types of organization.

After retrieving a list of relevant opportunities, the user can follow links to details that include the funding amounts and when they will be available.

LOW OR NO EMISSION VEHICLE DEPLOYMENT (LNE2D)

The US DOT’s LNE2D program will bring $1 billion in funding to states, territories, and the District of Columbia to deploy zero-emission and low-emission vehicles, including electric vehicles. LNE2D funds can be used to install EV charging stations in certain areas.
