Background:
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), enacted as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), was signed into law on Nov. 15, 2021, and is being administered by the Joint Office of Energy and Transportation. As part of the BIL, $5 billion will be allocated for the NEVI Formula Program, which is focused on establishing a network across the country to accelerate the adoption of EVs, reduce transportation-related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and position U.S.-based industries for global leadership in the vehicle electrification ecosystem. The NEVI Formula Program will provide funding to make the most transformative investment in EV charging in U.S. history that will lead to deployment of a nationwide network of 500,000 EV charging stations by 2030 that ensures a convenient, reliable, affordable, and equitable charging experience for all users. More information on NEVI can be found on the MDOT website.

Public input:
MDOT, EGLE, OFME, and MPSC are seeking public input on the development of the plan. Comments and input can be submitted through the NEVI Formula Plan survey.
