Generally, Volkswagen Mitigation funds are to be used to replace or repower existing diesel vehicles, vessels, and equipment with less polluting vehicles or engines. Per the Alabama Volkswagen Settlement Beneficiary Mitigation Plan (Alabama VW BMP), fifteen percent (15%) of the available funding has been allocated for Light-Duty Zero Emission Vehicle Supply Equipment (ZEVSE) infrastructure, which is the maximum amount that Alabama could utilize for this purpose under the settlement agreement.
EV Infrastructure funds can cover the acquisition, installation, operation and maintenance of new light duty zero emission vehicle supply equipment for projects. Funds may not be used to purchase or rent real-estate, for other capital costs (e.g., construction of buildings, parking facilities, etc.) or general maintenance (i.e., maintenance other than of the Supply Equipment).
Each site should be a separate application.
Partnerships are encouraged but must be between the applicant and their partner.
Yes, but contributions must be documented. Any match committed to the project is the responsibility of the applicant.
It is anticipated that announcements will be made within 60 days of the close of the application.
It is typically expected that construction will be complete within 18-24 months. If any delays are anticipated, applicants should outline these delays in the application. The proposed timeline should reflect time required to comply with all applicable state and federal laws.
Any subsequent rounds will be determined based on the funds available.
