CALeVIP Update and Another Opportunity for EV Public Charging Funding
In a showing of the strong demand for transportation electrification, the San José portion of funds for the California Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Project (CALeVIP) ($14 million) quickly filled with applications within hours of opening in December. Center for Sustainability (CSE), the program administrator, and SJCE staff are currently vetting applicants to ensure they meet participation criteria and will begin awarding funding in just a few months. If your organization is interested in future electric vehicle charging infrastructure incentives, we still encourage you to apply on the Project website and join the waitlist. SJCE hopes to use the list of applicants for future program outreach.
The Bay Area Air Quality District’s (BAAQMD) Charge! Program presents another opportunity to receive grant funding for the purchase and installation of new publicly accessible chargers for light-duty electric vehicles at workplaces, destinations, transit parking locations, and multi-unit dwelling facilities. A total $6 million in grant funding is available for organizations including governments, businesses, and nonprofits in the Bay Area.
All applications are due on or before March 18, 2021. All prospective applicants MUST attend at least one mandatory pre-application workshop before applying. Each workshop will be held online via webinar and is limited to 100 attendees. Registration is required. The next workshop is scheduled for March 2, 2021 at 1 p.m.
