Alternative Fuel Corridor (AFC) Grants

The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) must establish a competitive grant program to strategically deploy publicly accessible electric vehicle charging and hydrogen, propane, and natural gas fueling infrastructure along designated DOT Federal Highway Administration AFCs. The grant will provide funding for designated Corridor-Pending AFCs to install infrastructure to convert to Corridor-Ready AFCs, and for Corridor-Ready AFCs to install alternative fuel infrastructure to provide station redundancy and meet higher demand. Propane fueling infrastructure is limited to use by medium- and heavy-duty vehicles. Eligible entities include states, metropolitan planning organizations, local governments, political subdivisions, and tribal governments. Additional funding eligibility and considerations will apply. The grant program must be established by November 15, 2022. (Reference Public Law 117-58 and 23 U.S. Code 151)
