National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Formula Program

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), enacted as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), offers a unique funding opportunity to advance a statewide electric vehicle (EV) fast charging network and community-based charging installations in urban and rural areas throughout the state. The National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) formula program will provide $5 billion over five years for states to build electric vehicle service equipment (EVSE) charging stations along highway corridors. NEVI goals for the EVSE network include being reliable, affordable, equitable, and seamless between states and networks while reducing emissions and increasing clean air.

Over the next five years, Alaska will receive more than $52 million from the NEVI Formula Program. The NEVI Formula Program expands AEA’s existing EV charging efforts, which utilize Volkswagen Settlement funding to support the installation of an EV fast-charging network connecting Seward and Homer north to Healy. Collectively, these programs will encourage further EV adoption.

Now Available: Request for Applications (RFA) for Phase 1

The RFA and associated documents for Phase 1 of Alaska’s NEVI Formula Program are now available. The application period will be open for 60 days. Please note that any costs incurred before a grant is approved are not eligible for reimbursement. AEA’s goal for this RFA, is to build out Phase 1, which includes the Alternative Fuel Corridor from Anchorage to Fairbanks. The RFA seeks to fund projects directly related to the charging of a vehicle and only to support EV charging infrastructure that is open to the general public. The applicant’s project team must include an experienced charging network provider.
Applications must be submitted to AEA by no later than 4 p.m. on Monday, May 1, 2023, either by email or physical delivery.

Alaska's Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Deployment Plan

The State of Alaska is required to submit an EV Infrastructure Deployment Plan to the FHWA on an annual basis. The Plan depicts how the State will successfully deploy the NEVI Formula Program Funds across Alaska.

Alaska’s Electric Vehicle (EV) Infrastructure Deployment Plan (The Plan) was developed by AEA and the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT&PF) with support from various stakeholders. The Plan will continue to be updated over the years by AEA and the DOT&PF. NEVI program funds will be received by DOT&PF and administered by AEA for the duration of the program.

AEA will continue to be open to questions and comments on The Plan, and those can be submitted to We encourage the public to periodically visit this site for installation progress, FAQs, and further planning updates. AEA thanks the public for its input and looks forward to working with you as it develops.


AEA entered the realm of EVs when we were designated as the lead agency to administer the State of Alaska’s Volkswagen (VW) Environmental Mitigation Trust in 2018. Since then, AEA developed the Alaska Electric Vehicle Working Group, which identified lack of EV infrastructure as a significant impediment to EV adoption. To address the lack of EV charging infrastructure and range anxiety, AEA awarded nearly $1 million in VW Trust funds to install nine EV fast-charging stations from the Kenai Peninsula to Healy, which are currently under construction. The recently passed IIJA provides $5 billion nationally for EV charging infrastructure under the NEVI Formula Program. Under this program, Alaska will receive more than $50 million over five years beginning in the fiscal year 2023. 

Stakeholder Engagement

In preparation of Alaska’s Electric Vehicle (EV) Infrastructure Deployment Plan, AEA has held a series of convenings to gather input from stakeholders. The meeting notes and presentation materials of these convenings are posted below. Please note that this list does not include all the meetings held during the plan development.
