Technical Assistance

The Joint Office of Energy and Transportation provides technical assistance on planning and implementation of a national network of electric vehicle chargers and zero-emission fueling infrastructure as well as zero-emission transit and school buses. Initially, the Joint Office will work with states and key stakeholders to build capacity for electric vehicles, plan for charging infrastructure, and implement approved state plans. Additional support is provided for deploying electric school buses and electric transit buses.

  • Build Your State EV Charging Plan

    Use these resources for building a state plan:

  • Transition School Buses to Clean and Zero-Emission Models

    The Environmental Protection Agency's Clean School Bus Program provides $5 billion over 5 years (fiscal years 2022 – 2026) to replace existing school buses with clean and zero-emission models. The Joint Office provides technical assistance to school districts to plan for and deploy clean school buses.

  • Transition Transit Buses to Low- or No-Emission Models

    The Federal Transit Administration's Low or No Emission (Low-No) Vehicle Program provides $5.6 billion over 5 years (2022 – 2026) to help modernize bus fleets and bus facilities across the country, focused on helping transit agencies purchase or lease low- or no-emission vehicles and necessary charging or fueling infrastructure. Entities currently receiving Low-No funds, planning to apply for Low-No funds, or using other FTA program funds for clean buses can contact the Joint Office for technical assistance to plan for and deploy clean transit buses.
