The Charge! Program provides grant funding to offset a portion of the cost to purchase and install new publicly accessible (multi-family housing located projects are not subject to public accessibility requirements) chargers for light-duty electric vehicles, or EVs, along transportation corridors, at multi-family housing facilities, destinations, transit parking locations, and workplaces across the Bay Area. The goal of the Charge! Program is to rapidly expand access to EV charging stations to help achieve the Bay Area’s EV-adoption goals of 90 percent of the overall vehicle fleet by 2050. At the end of 2021, there were more than 266,000 EVs registered to Bay Area drivers. This program is funded through the Air District’s Transportation Fund for Clean Air Regional Fund and other sources depending on funding availability, which provide grants to improve air quality within the nine-county Bay Area by reducing emissions of pollutants from on-road vehicles, and may include additional funding sources as available.
