Other Electric Vehicle Charging Grants

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) also created direct-to-user grants not managed by federal or state agencies. The aspects of these grants include a competitive program to deploy publicly accessible EV, hydrogen, propane and natural gas fueling infrastructure.

Any current funding opportunities will be listed on this page, check back frequently for updates.

Feds open applications for first round of Charging and Fueling Infrastructure Discretionary Grant Program

The Federal Government has announced it has opened applications for the first round of Charging and Fueling Infrastructure Discretionary Grant Program. 

The Charging and Fueling Infrastructure Discretionary Grant Program (CFI Program) is a new competitive grant program created by President Biden's Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to strategically deploy publicly accessible electric vehicle charging and alternative fueling infrastructure in the places people live and work, urban and rural areas alike, in addition to along designated Alternative Fuel Corridors (AFCs). CFI Program investments will make modern and sustainable infrastructure accessible to all drivers of electric, hydrogen, propane, and natural gas vehicles. This program provides two funding categories of grants: (1) Community Charging and Fueling Grants (Community Program); and (2) Alternative Fuel Corridor Grants (Corridor Program). The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law provides $2.5 billion over five years for this program. 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.

Volkswagen Settlement Money

 After violating the Clean Air Act, Volkswagen was required to pay a settlement to each state; Wyoming received $1.2 million. Funds will be available as a grant managed by the ZEV Working Group.

The ZEV strategy currently recommends using the funds for off-corridor use to supplement NEVI on-corridor stations.These funds can be used for more charging options, including lower level charging stations, which take longer to charge a vehicle than a level 3 charing station. These grants would have up to a 50/50 match. More information will be released, check back soon!

US DOT compiles "Charging Forward: A Toolkit for Planning and Funding Rural Electric Mobility Infrastructure"


This toolkit is intended for a variety of rural stakeholders, including States, local communities, Tribes, transportation providers, nonprofits, businesses, and individuals.

The toolkit focuses on infrastructure for light-duty electric passenger vehicles (such as sedans, sport utility vehicles, and pickup trucks), but also addresses funding opportunities and planning considerations for other types of electric vehicles, including transit and school buses, medium- and heavy-duty vehicles, and agricultural equipment such as tractors.

To access both the web-based or PDF versions of the kit, click here. 






This toolkit covers the stages of EV infrastructure development in the following sections:

  • Electric Vehicle Basics
  • Benefits and Challenges of Rural Vehicle Electrification
  • Partnership Opportunities
  • EV Infrastructure Planning for Rural Areas
  • EV Infrastructure Funding and Financing for Rural Areas
  • Resources for EV Infrastructure Planning
  • Environmental Statutes and Executive Orders
