Frequently Asked Questions

NEVI stands for National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure and refers to a formula that will strategically deploy funding to State for EV charging with a goal to put us on a path to a nationwide network of 500,000 EV chargers by 2030.  This includes a total of up to $7.5 billion in dedicated funding to help make EV chargers accessible to all Americans for local to long-distance trips.  That $7.5 billion is comprised of a $5 billion NEVI formula program and a $2.5 billion discretionary grant program.

If awarded the funding, Utah is poised to not simply spend the funds but to invest the funds to grow local economies, create new industries, and focus on the economic multiplier effect in Utah.

The $2.5 billion discretionary grant program is divided into two distinct $1.25 billion grant programs to support EV charger deployment.  

Corridor Charging Grant Program.  

This program will strategically deploy publicly accessible EV charging infrastructure and hydrogen, propane, and natural gas fueling infrastructure along designated Alternative Fuel Corridors. 

Community Charging Grant Program.  

This program will strategically deploy publicly accessible EV charging infrastructure and hydrogen, propane, and natural gas fueling infrastructure in communities. 

 

As the NEVI plan is being finalized (between now and August 2022), UDOT will post drafts on this website. Members of the public are welcome to review and provide input as it is refined. Also, UDOT is engaging with peer agencies throughout the state and the nation to gather input to inform the plan. If funding is awarded to Utah, additional public engagement will occur at that time as well. Please keep an eye on this website for future opportunities for input.
