Funding through the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) program is taking shape, and throughout this year, we’ve been keeping a close eye on how states are preparing to put chargers in the ground.

But first, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) recently released new information regarding the next year of NEVI funding. Per the latest guidance, states must submit their plan update no later than August 1st, 2023, including a section on updates from last year’s plan. The FHWA also released an updated state NEVI plan template, and strongly encourages states to use this template to develop their plans. Moreover, the FHWA released a Q&A for the NEVI program. The FAQ answers a suite of helpful questions relating to the program, including questions relating to Justice40 and contracting for EV chargers.

With our NEVI Dashboard, we have been tracking state agency requests that relate to NEVI charging deployment, including Requests for Information (RFI), Requests for Proposals (RFP), and public comment requests. See below for the current list of active requests in order of due date.
