Funding Opportunities

Securing funding is critical to the success of efforts to deploy a network of electric vehicle chargers, zero-emission fueling infrastructure, and zero-emission transit and school buses.

Future funding opportunities for Joint Office of Energy and Transportation (Joint Office) projects may become available from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).

The Joint Office provides information and resources about current funding opportunity announcements (FOAs), requests for information, and links to related opportunities from other DOE offices and federal organizations.


Funded Projects

The Joint Office made available $46.5 million from President Biden's Bipartisan Infrastructure Law for projects that bolster America's electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure. The 30 projects across 16 states and Washington, D.C., will ensure convenient and efficient EV infrastructure for drivers.

Learn about key considerations from past DOE-funded projects on curbside EV charging, EV car share, EV charging for multifamily housing, and EV mobility hubs.

Become a Joint Office Reviewer

The Joint Office is seeking subject matter experts to review applications for federal funding opportunities, including the Communities Taking Charge Accelerator (DE-FOA-0003214). Desired reviewer expertise and application instructions are listed on the Reviewers Needed for Joint Office Federal Funding Applications page.

Charging and Fueling Infrastructure Discretionary Grant Program Round 2

The purpose of this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is to solicit applications for the Charging and Fueling Infrastructure Discretionary Grant Program (CFI Program) established under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (“Bipartisan Infrastructure Law” or “BIL”). In addition, funds under the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program 10 percent set-aside, also established by BIL, will also be awarded under this NOFO. The CFI Program provides two funding categories of grants: (1) Community Charging and Alternative Fueling Grants (Community Program); and (2) Charging and Alternative Fuel Corridor Grants (Corridor Program). CFI Program investments will make modern and sustainable infrastructure accessible to all drivers of electric, hydrogen, propane, and natural gas vehicles. The CFI Program offers up to $1.3 billion under this NOFO.
