MnDOT National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure

The Minnesota Department of Transportation has opened the application process for private and public entities to tap into federal funds to own and operate electric vehicle charging stations.

The funds are a part of the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure program, a federal program enacted in 2021 as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA).

They are intended to build a convenient, affordable, reliable and equitable national network of EV chargers.

Successful applicants will be required to enter into a contract with MnDOT. The project team must include an experienced charging network provider and an entity with ownership or lease of the property through the five-year operations and maintenance period.

In Minnesota, the first round of NEVI funds will be used to build 18 fast charging stations along the Alternative Fuel Corridors designated by the federal government – Interstate 94 and I-35.
