Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Grants

The Maryland Energy Administration administers the Maryland Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Program (AFIP), which provides grants to plan, install, and operate public access alternative fueling and charging infrastructure. Private access natural gas and propane fueling stations are eligible for funding. Only Maryland-based private businesses are eligible, and projects must take place in the state. Grant award amounts are based on the alternative fuel technology and are capped at 50% of project costs. Applicant cost share must be at least 50%.
