Connecticut’s National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program
FHWA Approved 09/14/22
The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) is managing Connecticut’s share of the NEVI formula funding and plans to work closely with different state agencies and stakeholders to develop a State Plan on how best to build out the state’s fast charging network.
Each state must develop a plan for using their NEVI funds and submit them for approval to the U.S. Joint Office of Energy and Transportation by August 1, 2022. Under the NEVI program, interstates identified under FHWA’s Alternative Fuel Corridor program must be prioritized for infrastructure buildout before that can happen at other locations.
The Connecticut NEVI Plan will create a robust roadmap for how the state intends to expand a safe, reliable, accessible, and equitable electric vehicle fast charging network throughout the state.

Federal NEVI Formula Program Process and Guidance
National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Formula Program -- A Proposed Rule by the Federal Highway Administration on 6/22/2022.
The FHWA proposes to establish regulations setting minimum standards and requirements for projects funded under the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program and projects for the construction of publicly accessible electric vehicle (EV) chargers under certain statutory authorities. The standards and requirements proposed would apply to the installation, operation, or maintenance of EV charging infrastructure; the interoperability of EV charging infrastructure; traffic control device or on-premises signage acquired, installed, or operated in concert with EV charging infrastructure; data, including the format and schedule for the submission of such data; network connectivity of EV charging infrastructure; and information on publicly available EV charging infrastructure locations, pricing, real-time availability, and accessibility through mapping applications.
Comments must be received on or before August 22, 2022.
