Department of Ecology grant available for direct current fast chargers for EVs

Approximately $4 million is available by grant from the Department of Ecology for the purchase and installation of publicly accessible direct current fast chargers (DCFC) for electric vehicles along high-traffic corridors in Washington. This is a great opportunity for businesses and local government facilities to invest in DCFC at a greatly discounted rate!

The grant prioritizes areas that have a high level of diesel pollution and are located within 1.5 miles of a high traffic corridor. These areas include I-5, and highways 16, 512 and 705. Pierce County is also an Air Quality Priority County with many communities who have experienced a disproportionate amount of impact due to diesel exhaust and poor air quality, putting many of our businesses in a prime location for grant funding.

Eligible applicants include:

  • Businesses
  • Incorporated nonprofits
  • State, local, or Tribal government agencies

Eligible projects include new installations and upgrades. For more information and to see if you business qualifies, click here to read the complete grant guidelines.

Applicants must submit their application by March 10, 2020 and use the Department of Ecology’s grant and loan application system.
