Rural Community Electric Vehicle (EV) Direct Loans and Grants

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Community Facilities Direct Loan and Grant Program provides direct loans and grants to community-based nonprofit organizations to purchase, construct, or improve essential community facilities, purchase equipment, and pay related project expenses. Loans and grants may be used to purchase EVs for use by essential community services and EV charging stations for fleets, public parking locations, and community facilities. Interest rates for direct loans are determined by USDA Rural Development, and grants may cover up to 55% of project costs. Additional terms and conditions apply.
