The Department of Environmental Protection is now accepting applications for Level 2 Electric Vehicle Charging Rebate Program Grants as part of the Driving PA Forward Initiative. (formal notice)

DEP will accept applications for $3 million in grants through March 31 or until funding runs out.

The Department is seeking applications for projects that will install Level 2 EV charging equipment in publicly accessible locations (government or nongovernment owned), workplaces and multi-unit dwellings.

Funding is available for public and private entities that own one or more of these location types in this Commonwealth.

These entities may include school districts, municipal authorities, political subdivisions, other state agencies, nonprofit entities, corporations, limited liability companies or partnerships incorporated or registered in this Commonwealth, air quality or transportation organizations, and metropolitan or rural planning organizations.

This program is funded by Pennsylvania’s share of the settlement with Volkswagen Group of America for cheating on U.S. Environmental Protection Agency emissions tests.

Six transportation projects designed to improve air quality in Pennsylvania are expected to permanently reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions statewide by 27 tons by accelerating the replacement of older, polluting diesel engines with cleaner technologies.
