Iowa’s Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Deployment plan was submitted to the federal Joint Office of Energy and Transportation for their review on August 1, 2022. This plan was developed in accordance with the 90-day National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) formula program guidance issued on February 10, 2022.
The plan will now undergo a review by the Joint Office. Based on the review, adjustments to the plan may be necessary prior to certification by the Federal Highway Administration by September 30, 2022. Certification of the plan will allow the state of Iowa to begin implementing the plan and accessing the federal NEVI formula funding. After certification, there are still many details to work out regarding program implementation and administration so we anticipate it will be later this winter before we are able to officially announce the availability of funding and the process for seeking those funds.
