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 complement Michigan'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 two million EVs on Michigan roads by 2030.

Program Requirements

The U.S. Department of Transportation 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 February 2023, Program Guidance was released June 2023, and FHWA posts periodic FAQ updates. This will serve as the guiding document for Michigan's program development. 

MDOT anticipates multiple procurement rounds over the life of the NEVI program.

Preparation for Applicants

Applicants can perform several tasks (at their own cost) to prepare for the submission process. Any costs incurred before a contract is approved are not eligible for reimbursement.

Michigan's Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Deployment Plan

The State of Michigan is required to submit an Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Deployment Plan to 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.
