The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials recently helped establish a free repository of information on electric vehicles available to state agencies. State agencies must create a free account in order to use the clearinghouse, accessed by clicking here.

Called the “EV States Clearinghouse,” it contains a variety of documents such as sample requests for proposals or RFPs, sample contracts, EV infrastructure siting and assessment tools, plus other resources. Those tools and documents can help state agencies deploy the funding for EVs created in the $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act or IIJA – signed into law in November 2021 – which created the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure or NEVI formula program. That program will allocate $5 billion to states through formula funds over the next five years to build out EV charging infrastructure.
Updates to the EV clearinghouse will continually occur, adding the most recent information on IIJA implementations as well as updates from states as they move through the various stages of EV deployment.
AASHTO helped develop this EV resource in partnership with the National Association of State Energy Officials, ICF, and Atlas Public Policy, with the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory providing support for this initiative.
