$700 Million AVAILABLE for projects that Accelerate electrified and alternative fuel transportation systems across america!
The CFI Program will accelerate an electrified and alternative fuel transportation system that is convenient, affordable, reliable, equitable, accessible, and safe. The CFI Program will also help put the U.S. on a path to a nationwide network of at least 500,000 EV chargers by 2030 and improve networks for vehicles using hydrogen, propane, and natural gas.
Award amounts will be based on estimated costs, with an expected minimum funding of $500,000 and an expected maximum of $15,000,000.
corridor grant program
Corridor Program grants are expected to support buildout of charging or other alternative fueling infrastructure along designated AFCs. DOT designates national AFCs that identify near- and long-term needs for, and location of, charging and other fueling infrastructure at strategic locations along major national highways across the United States.
Award amounts will be based on estimated costs, with an expected minimum funding of $1,000,000 and no expected maximum.
For both grant programs, the Federal share shall not exceed 80 percent of the total project cost.
