The intent of the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Program is to build out a national electric vehicle (EV) charging network for passenger vehicles and light duty trucks. This new formula funding program will provide the Department a total of $198 million over the life of the five-year program. Funds can be used to purchase and install EV charging infrastructure, operating expenses, purchase and installation of traffic control devices located in the right-of-way, on-premises signage, development activities, and mapping and analysis activities. States must first prioritize EV charging infrastructure on the Interstate Highway System (IHS). FDOT will fill in the EV charging gaps along the IHS by installing infrastructure where the market is currently not servicing.

April Combs serves as a Statewide Planning Coordinator in the Office of Policy Planning for the Florida Department of Transportation.
