Public Meeting on the Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Grant Program

Published 8:00 am Sunday, October 30, 2022

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (LA DOTD) invites all citizens and interested parties to attend a public meeting on the electric vehicle infrastructure grant program. The U.S. Legislature has made National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program funds available for expenditure by state transportation agencies for the buildout of electric vehicle charging stations that meet federal requirements. These funds cover 80 percent of the expenses to install electric vehicle charging stations throughout the State with a minimum 20 percent match covered by grant recipients. To disburse these funds, LA DOTD will solicit applications from the general public for a phased approach to this buildout. During this meeting, we will share our statewide deployment plan and provide updates on our grant program, application, and selection criteria.

A moderated presentation and discussion will be held at the LA DOTD Headquarters Auditorium on November 10, 2022, from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm with a virtual option. Public comments and questions will be gathered prior to the meeting at DOTD-EVProgram@la.gov and in person via note cards. Virtual attendees may also utilize the chat feature for comments and questions.
