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.

Federal Discretionary Grant Funding Opportunity - EV Charging

The Federal Highway Administration recently announced a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for the Electric Vehicle Charger Reliability and Accessibility Accelerator discretionary grant. This NOFO announces the availability of up to $100 million in Federal funding to repair and replace existing, but non-operational, EV charging infrastructure around the country.

Note: Only local governments are eligible for this NOFO; private businesses may be eligible if they have a public partner, check the NOFO for more information.  

Applications are due Nov. 13, 2023. More information and qualifications for the NOFO can be found on the Grants.Gov website: https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/search-grants.html (Grant number: 693JJ324NF00001)

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
