PennDOT Issues $20M In Second Round Of National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Funds

On April 4, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced $20 million in investments for Round 1A of the federal National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) funding. Pennsylvania was one of the first states in the country to open NEVI fund applications in March 2023 and complete a NEVI funded charging station in December 2023.

Twenty-nine projects in 19 counties across the state were selected to fill in gaps on the Alternative Fuel Corridors (AFC) following the $38.5M funding in NEVI Round 1.  The $20 million federal investment is part of the $171.5 million PennDOT will receive and distribute for EV charging infrastructure over five years through the federal Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL).

PennDOT simultaneously announced the PennDOT NEVI Round 1B Eligible Locations Map. This targeted funding round is designed to fill Alternative Fuel Corridor gaps that remain after Round 1 and Round 1A. Interested proposers should begin preparing their projects in anticipation of a proposal due date in June or July.
