Alabama is projected to receive $79,308,285 through the federal National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) formula program over the next five years. This program involves up to 80% federal funding and at least 20% non-federal matching on each project, with the non-federal funds expected to come from grant applicants. ADECA is administering these funds through a competitive grant program.
As background, Alabama submitted its “FY2024 NEVI Plan” to the federal Joint Office of Energy and Transportation on September 13,2023 and the plan was approved on October 25, 2023.
Please find information below on the Round 1 NEVI application period. Please also be advised that Interstate corridors (I-65, I-165, I-565, I-20, I-59, I-359, I-459, I-759, I-85, I-10, and I-22) are eligible in Round 1 and additional Corridors designated will have eligibility starting with the Round 2 application process.

Other Alabama EV Infrastructure Funding Programs
Electric Vehicle Infrastructure and Planning Grant Program at ADECA
Alabama also has a state-funded program which provides opportunities for charging infrastructure grants in areas of the state and for types of chargers that are not eligible under the federal NEVI program.
Ongoing priorities for this state program will include fast-charging projects along non-interstate corridors and Level 2 charging projects at locations where people have longer dwell times, including workplaces, tourist attractions, shopping centers, and near multi-family dwellings.
