AboutCT NEVI Plan Helpful resources Frequently asked questions

The National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Formula Program (NEVI) is part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law enacted in 2021. This program will provide $5 billion over five years for states to deploy direct current (DC) fast electric vehicle (EV) chargers along highway corridors. The NEVI Program provides formula funding to states to award grants to private, public, and nonprofit entities to build, own, maintain and operate chargers. 


Over the first five years of the NEVI Formula Program, Connecticut will receive approximately $52 million in dedicated formula funding.


The initial focus of this funding, Phase 1, is for the state to strategically deploy Direct Current Fast Charging (DCFC) along designated Alternative Fuel Corridors (AFCs), to help build out the national electric AFC network.
