Biden Administration Allocates $900 Million for Electric Vehicle Chargers
September 19, 2022
President Biden announced this week the approval of a $900 million investment to install electric vehicle (EV) charging stations across 34 states and Puerto Rico.
“The great American road trip is going to be fully electrified. Whether you're driving coast to coast along the I-10, or on I-75 here in Michigan, charging stations will be up and as easy to find as gas stations are now," he said Wednesday at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
The funding comes as part of the $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure law passed last November—$7.5 billion of which is allocated for expanding access to EV chargers.
