Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Station Corridor Grants

The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality’s (ADEQ) Direct Current Fast Charge (DCFC) Financial Assistance program provides grants to public and private entities to install 150-kilowatt DCFC stations along major interstates and transportation corridors. Grants are available for 75% of the total project costs, up to $350,000 per site. To be eligible, sites must be within 50 miles of an exit from a designated Alternative Fuels Corridor, publicly accessible 24 hours daily, and well-lit. The program is funded by Arkansas’s portion of the Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Trust. For more information, see ADEQ’s DCFC Financial Assistance Program website.
