What is the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program?

Established and funded by President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program provides crucial funding to states to deploy electric vehicle (EV) charging stations throughout communities and along important transportation corridors. The program’s $5 billion slated to be available over five years represents not only significant investment in infrastructure, but also a firm commitment to meeting the country’s climate goals. According to a statement from the administration, the program investment is intended to “accelerate the adoption of EVs, reduce emissions, improve air quality, and create good-paying jobs across the country.”

To take part in the program, states were required to submit their first-year deployment plans by August 1, 2022, outlining strategies for using their allocated shares of NEVI funding. These plans are required to be updated each year. Once approved, a state may begin accessing its share of allotted funds for eligible EV infrastructure projects.
