CFI Discretionary Grant Program Application Deadline Extended
May 18, 2023
The Charging and Fueling Infrastructure Discretionary Grant Program (CFI Program) application submission deadline has been extended to June 13, 2023. The new application due date is posted on the FHWA website and on Grants.gov.
The CFI Program is a new competitive grant program created by President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to strategically deploy publicly accessible electric vehicle charging and alternative fueling infrastructure in the places people live and work, urban and rural areas alike, in addition to along designated Alternative Fuel Corridors (AFCs).
CFI Program investments will make modern and sustainable infrastructure accessible to all drivers of electric, hydrogen, propane, and natural gas vehicles. This program provides two funding categories of grants:
- Community Charging and Fueling Grants (Community Program); and
- Alternative Fuel Corridor Grants (Corridor Program).
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law provides $2.5 billion over five years for this program. This first round of funding makes $700 million from Fiscal Years 2022 and 2023 funding available to strategically deploy electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure and other fueling infrastructure projects in urban and rural communities in publicly accessible locations, including downtown areas and local neighborhoods, particularly in underserved and disadvantaged communities.
