General Grant Program Information
The Charging and Fueling Infrastructure Grant Program provides funding to strategically deploy publicly accessible electric vehicle charging infrastructure and other alternative fueling infrastructure. This grant program has two tracks:
- Corridor Charging: To deploy electric vehicle charging and hydrogen/propane/natural gas fueling infrastructure along designated alternative fuel corridors.
- Community Charging: To install electric vehicle charging and alternative fuel in locations on public roads, schools, parks, and in publicly accessible parking facilities.
Community Charging grants will prioritize rural areas as well as low-and moderate-income neighborhoods with low ratios of private parking, or high ratios of multiunit dwellings.
Eligible applicants for both grants include state or political subdivisions of states, metropolitan planning organization (MPOs), local governments, special purpose districts or public authorities with a transportation function, Tribal governments, and territories.
Both tracks of the Charging and Fueling Infrastructure Grant Program provide $1.25 billion for a total of $2.5 billion over 5 years. This first round of funding makes $700 million from fiscal years 2022 and 2023 funding available to strategically deploy electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure and other fueling infrastructure projects in urban and rural communities in publicly accessible locations, including downtown areas and local neighborhoods, particularly in underserved and disadvantaged communities.
Federal cost-sharing is up to 80 percent; applicant must provide the remaining 20 percent.
