National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Program is the first major federal program focused on a nationwide deployment of EV charging infrastructure
The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) was recently awarded $2 million in funding through the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program. The goal of the NEVI program is to provide grants to states and localities that require additional assistance to strategically deploy electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
Electric Vehicle Charger Reliability and Accessibility Accelerator Funds from the NEVI Program may be used to repair existing, but non-operational, electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure in Central Ohio. MORPC staff will develop a competitive application process for eligible local public agencies located within MORPC’s member counties. The funding will be available for state fiscal years 2025–2026.
The Biden-Harris administration has set a goal of building a convenient, affordable, reliable, equitable, and Made-in-America electric vehicle (EV) charging network along the nation’s highways and within communities. In alignment with this goal, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (“Bipartisan Infrastructure Law” or “BIL”), included the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program as the first major federal funding program that focuses on a nationwide deployment of EV charging infrastructure.
MORPC will be hosting a virtual workshop in the coming weeks to provide additional guidance on the application and selection process. Details about this event will be featured on www.morpc.org and via its digital media platforms.
