Electric Vehicle (EV) Infrastructure Grants and Loan Guarantees

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Energy for America Program (REAP) provides loan guarantees and grants to agricultural producers and rural small businesses to purchase renewable energy systems or make energy efficiency improvements, including EV charging stations. Eligible EV charging stations may only be used for private fleet purposes and may not dispense electricity for retail use. The maximum grant award is 25% of project costs. REAP funding availability is subject to congressional appropriations. Additional terms and conditions apply. For more information, see the USDA Energy Programs website, REAP website, and EV Infrastructure fact sheet.
