The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) is inviting Hoosiers to give their feedback on how the state should spend federal grant money to grow Indiana’s electric vehicle (EV) charging network.

IDEM, in partnership with the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) and Drive Clean Indiana (DCI), plans to apply for funding for both corridor and community EV charging enhancements through Round 2 of the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA’s) Charging and Fueling Infrastructure (CFI) Grant Program.

Hoosiers can visit GOEVIN’s website, goevin.com through July 24, 2024, to learn more and complete an online survey to identify priorities and projects to include in Indiana’s grant application.

Round 2 of the CFI program will provide up to $1.3 billion to deploy publicly accessible EV charging along designated Alternative Fuel Corridors (AFCs) and local communities across the U.S. corridor projects must be located within 1 mile of a designated AFC; community projects can be located on any public road or publicly accessible location. 

Additional information is available on the GOEVIN website at goevin.com/programs-and-incentives. Information on the page includes:

  • An overview of the goals and objectives of Indiana’s statewide CFI Grant Program;
  • Links to key aspects and requirements of FHWA’s CFI Grant Program;
  • A timeline of key milestones for the RFI and statewide application development; and
  • A link to the online survey.

Hoosiers are highly encouraged to review available information before taking the survey.
