National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Formula Program
National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Formula Program
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), enacted as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), has made a historic investment in electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure to help make EV chargers accessible to all Americans for local to long-distance trips. Part of this investment involves the development of the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program, which will provide funding to States to strategically deploy EV charging infrastructure and establish an interconnected network to facilitate data collection, access, and reliability.
Michigan will receive a total of roughly $110 million in NEVI Formula Program funding through Fiscal Year 2026. The NEVI Formula Program will compliment the State's existing EV charging efforts such as Charge Up Michigan and the Lake Michigan Circuit. Collectively, these programs will aim to build out the infrastructure to support 2 million EVs on Michigan roads by 2030.

EGLE's Grants and Loans Email Updates.
The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) proposed to establish regulations that would set minimum standards and requirements for projects funded under the NEVI Formula Program. The NEVI Formula Program Final Rule was released in February of 2023. This will serve as the guiding document for Michigan's program development. The State plans to issue a formal Request for Proposals (RFP) for Michigan's NEVI Formula Program in Spring of 2023. Please refer to the following resources for some preliminary information about the forthcoming funding opportunity.
Preparation for Applicants
Until a final RFP is released for Michigan's NEVI Formula Program, potential applicants can perform several tasks (at their own cost) to prepare for the submission process. Please note that any costs incurred before a grant is approved are not eligible for reimbursement.
- NEW Review Draft NEVI Formula Program RFP. Note that the draft version is non-final and subject to change.
- NEW Review Draft NEVI Formula Program Application. Note that the draft version is non-final and subject to change.
- NEW Review Draft NEVI Formula Program Evaluation Form. Note that the draft version is non-final and subject to change.
NOTE: Public comment for the Draft NEVI Formula Program RFP, Application, and Evaluation Form is closed.
- Charging network providers must enter into a data sharing agreement with EGLE to be eligible to participate in the NEVI Formula Program. View the list of Eligible Charging Network Providers to see which organizations have been approved for use. Charging network providers that wish to be added to the list can submit a completed Data Sharing Agreement Form (EQP5544) to the NEVI Formula Program Team.
- Register your entity with the Michigan SIGMA Vendor Self Service System. This will be the platform that the State will use to issue NEVI reimbursements to awardees.
- Verify your site is in an eligible location with the Michigan NEVI Formula Program Planning Map. Eligible locations are those that are no more than 1 mile driving distance from a designated alternative fuel corridor (shown as the solid lines on the map) and no more than 5 miles from a NEVI node (shown as the dots with the number on the map).
- Connect with your utility provider to get a site assessment to determine if power upgrades are necessary. You will need a letter of support from your utility provider to be considered for funding. Several investor-owned utilities have rebate programs that can be used as matching funds:
- Begin researching the permitting and inspection process of the local jurisdiction
- Begin researching charger hardware and software providers
- Begin identifying Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Training Program (EVITP) Certified Electricians (or if an electrician, get EVITP Certified)
- Begin forming your team
- Not sure where to start? Check out our EV Infrastructure Project Partners Directory to identify partners with services to meet your needs/broadcast your own services

Michigan's Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Deployment Plan
The State of Michigan is required to submit an Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Deployment Plan to the FHWA on an annual basis. The Plan depicts how the State will successfully deploy the NEVI Formula Program Funds within Michigan.The Plan was spearheaded by the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE), the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity (LEO), the Office of Future Mobility and Electrification (OFME), the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), and the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC), with support from many other agencies.
