Overview | FAQs


The United States Department of Transportation has posted a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for its CFI program. The program’s goal is to strategically employ publicly accessible electric vehicle (EV) charging and alternative fueling infrastructure, focusing on urban and rural areas in designated Alternative Fueling Corridors (AFCs) throughout the country. This program provides two funding categories of grants:

  1. Community Charging and Fueling Grants (Community Program); and
  2. Alternative Fuel Corridor Grants (Corridor Program)

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law provides $2.5 billion over five years for this program. This NOFO offers up to $700 million from Fiscal Years 2024 and 2025 to strategically deploy electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure and other alternative fueling infrastructure projects in urban and rural communities in publicly accessible locations, including downtown areas and local neighborhoods, particularly in underserved and disadvantaged communities.

SPC especially encourages eligible entities within the SPC region to submit applications to the Community Charging and Fueling Grants program. We urge you to contact SPC prior to beginning work on an application.

Municipalities, counties, and publicly-owned transit operators are among a large list of eligible applicants.

Applications are due by 11:59PM Eastern Time on August 28, 2024.
