Biden Admin Awards $623 Million in Grants to Expand EV Charging Infrastructure

The Biden Administration has announced that it has awarded grants worth a combined $623 million to help expand EV charging infrastructure in the United States.

Administered by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the grants are funded by the 2021 Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), which allocated $2.5 billion towards a Charging and Fueling Infrastructure (CFI) Discretionary Grant Program. Projects aimed at addressing EV charging needs in urban and rural communities received $311 million. Projects aimed at narrowing EV charging service gaps along key roadway corridors received $312 million.

The 47 CFI grants were awarded to recipients in 22 states and Puerto Rico. Examples of projects include:

  • $4.9 million to improve EV charging access in Boulder, Colorado
  • $70 million to build EV charging and hydrogen refueling stations for freight trucks in Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, and Austin, which will also contribute to a California to Texas hydrogen fueling corridor
