The Department of Housing and Community Development in partnership with the Agency of Natural resources is pleased to announce approximately $20,000 in Electric Vehicle Charging Station Grants for Designated Downtowns and Village Centers.  This is the remainder of funding that has been available in previous grant rounds.

Application and Guidelines

Grant applications are due June 6, 2016.  See the Electric Vehicle Charging Station Grant Application for eligibility, funding and application requirements.  Any municipality with a Designated Downtown or Designated Village Center may apply for funding and must be submitted by the municipality.  The maximum grant amount is $20,000 with a 25% match requirement that can be cash or in-kind.

Priority consideration will be given to high priority areas that do not currently have an existing or planned EVCS in the designated downtown or village center and/or geographic location is close to major highways/roads.  You can find locations for the existing electric vehicle charging stations in Vermont by following this link.

The electric vehicle charging station grant is a great funding opportunity to expand the network of charging stations statewide and we look forward to working with you.  Please contact Gary Holloway, the Downtown Program Coordinator at 802-828-3220 if you have questions or need assistance with the grant application.

Thank you,

Gary Holloway / Downtown Program Coordinator
