Tracking requests gives a sense for where new funding will fall and which technologies are positioned to see increased state support. For example, Florida closed an RFP for electric school buses in January 2021. The $57 million pilot is funded through the state’s Volkswagen Settlement allocation and will make the state the second largest funder of electric school buses after California, which has contributed more than $179 million in public funding to this technology.
As is the case with all of the data on the EV hub, support from our users helps us make sure each dashboard is up to date.

If you are aware of a missing policy, funding award, or public request, you can submit those to the EV Hub here.
