US Funding to Develop EV Charging Network across All 50 States

The Biden-Harris Administration has approved electric vehicle infrastructure deployment plans to improve EV charging in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico under the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) programme.

Each state now has access to the FY22 and FY23 NEVI formula funding from President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, totalling more than 1.5 billion USD.

This funding will help build EV chargers across 75,000 miles of highway to establish the US’s first nation-wide EV charging network.

US Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said:

“America led the original automotive revolution in the last century, and today, thanks to the historic resources in the President’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, we’re poised to lead in the 21st century with electric vehicles.

“We have approved plans for all 50 States, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia to help ensure that Americans in every part of the country – from the largest cities to the most rural communities—can be positioned to unlock the savings and benefits of electric vehicles.”

The US is currently aiming for at least half of all new vehicles sold in 2030 to be zero-emissions vehicles. A reliable network of public chargers is thus crucial for supporting this transition.

The 50 States, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico can use the NEVI Formula funding for projects directly related to the charging of a vehicle.

This includes the upgrade and construction of existing and new EV charging infrastructure, operation and maintenance costs, installation of on-site electrical service equipment, and charging station signage.

In addition, the funding can be used for community and stakeholder engagement, workforce development, data sharing, and related mapping analysis.

Acting Federal Highway Administrator Stephanie Pollack said:

“With this green light, States, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico can ramp up their work to build out EV charging networks that will make driving an EV more convenient and affordable for their residents and will serve as the backbone of our national EV charging network.”
