Technical Assistance and Resources for States and Communities
The Joint Office of Energy and Transportation (Joint Office) provides technical assistance for state departments of transportation that are creating and executing state plans under the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Formula Program. The Joint Office also provides technical assistance to community stakeholders implementing charging and fueling infrastructure projects. The Joint Office has electric transportation experts to available to help answer questions on electric vehicle chargers and zero-emission fueling infrastructure.
National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program
The $5 billion NEVI Formula Program provides dedicated funding to states to strategically deploy electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure and establish an interconnected network to facilitate data collection, access, and reliability. Under this program, each state is required to submit an EV Infrastructure Deployment Plan that describes how the state intends to use its apportioned NEVI Formula Program funds in accordance with federal guidance. Below are resources dedicated to plan development and implementation.
In fiscal year (FY) 2022 all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico submitted plans for EV charging infrastructure deployment. Visit the Joint Office State Plans page to view each plan, state funding for FY 2022 and FY 2023 from the NEVI Formula Program, as well as how many miles of EV charging corridors are designated as ready or pending in each state through Round 6 of the Alternative Fuel Corridors program.
Community and Fueling Infrastructure Grant Program
The Community and Fueling Infrastructure Grant Program provides $2.5 billion through two $1.25 billion discretionary grant programs to support EV charger deployment:
- Corridor Charging Grant Program: This program will strategically deploy publicly accessible EV charging infrastructure and hydrogen, propane, and natural gas fueling infrastructure along designated Alternative Fuel Corridors.
- Community Charging Grant Program: This program will strategically deploy publicly accessible EV charging infrastructure and hydrogen, propane, and natural gas fueling infrastructure in communities.
These programs will ensure charger deployments meet priorities such as supporting rural charging, building resilient infrastructure, addressing climate change, and increasing EV charging access in underserved and overburdened communities (also referred to as disadvantaged communities).
Resources will be available on the Joint Office website to support future projects under this program.
Data and Tools for States and Communities
As part of a suite of technical assistance resources, the Joint Office connects state and community stakeholders with critical data and tools.
Existing Charging Infrastructure
These tools can help states understand where EV charging infrastructure is installed and where existing corridors are designated.
Use the Alternative Fueling Station Locator to find existing EV charging infrastructure.
EV Program Development Tools
These resources can help states with developing an EV charging program.
