National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Formula Program

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, passed in late 2021, establishes a National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Formula Program (“NEVI Formula”) to provide funding to states to deploy electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure and to establish an interconnected network to facilitate data collection, access, and reliability.

Missouri will submit its plan to the Federal Highway Administration on Aug. 1, 2022 that recommends how Missouri will organize the placement of charging stations along interstate travel corridors.

Federal Legislation

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act signed into law on Nov. 15, 2021, established a first-of-its-kind National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Formula Program. NEVI will provide funding to states to deploy electric vehicle charging infrastructure along public roads to establish an interconnected network across the state and nation.

National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program.

The $5 billion NEVI Formula Program will provide dedicated funding to States to strategically deploy EV charging infrastructure and establish an interconnected network to facilitate data collection, access, and reliability. Initially, funding under this program is directed to designated Alternative Fuel Corridors for electric vehicles to build out this national network, particularly along the Interstate Highway System. When the national network is fully built out, funding may be used on any public road or in other publicly accessible locations. Ten percent of the NEVI Formula Program will be set-aside each fiscal year for the Secretary of Transportation to provide discretionary grants to help fill gaps in the national network. A separate process for these “gap-filling” grants will be established in future guidance.

For Fiscal years 2022-2026, Missouri will receive $98.9 million of the $5 billion NEVI formula funds to deploy electric vehicle charging infrastructure.  NEVI funds will cover 80% of eligible project costs.
