Heavy-Duty Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) and Infrastructure Grants
By February 12, 2023, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency must create a grant program for heavy-duty ZEVs and associated infrastructure. Grant award amounts vary and may cover up to 100% of total project costs. Eligible project costs include:
- The incremental cost of a Class 6 or 7 electric vehicle;
- Capital, installation, operation, and maintenance costs of ZEV charging or refueling infrastructure;
- Workforce development and training programs to support the maintenance, charging, fueling, and operation of ZEVs; and,
- Planning and technical activities that support the adoption and deployment of ZEVs.
Eligible applicants include state governments, municipalities, tribal governments, and non-profit school transportation associations. Additional funding is available for projects located in nonattainment communities. For more information, see the EPA Clean Heavy-Duty Vehicle Program website.
