Charge Program

Learn and apply for funding for electric vehicle charging stations

The Air District is pleased to announce Cycle 2 of the Charge! Program, an incentive program that offers grant funding for the installation of electric vehicle charging stations at Bay Area transportation corridors, workplaces, multi-family dwelling units (MDUs) and trip destination locations.

The goal of the Charge! Program is to rapidly expand access to electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in order to accelerate the Bay Area’s adoption of EVs and ultimately to achieve the region's EV deployment goals of 110,000 EVs by 2020 and 247,000 EVs by 2025.

This program is funded through the Transportation Fund for Clean Air (TFCA) Regional Fund, which provides grants to improve air-quality within the nine-county Bay Area by reducing criteria emissions from on-road vehicles.

An initial allocation of $5 million is available, and funding will be awarded to qualifying projects on a first-come, first-served basis. In addition, higher funding amounts are available for projects that are coupled with onsite wind or solar power generation.
