The Federal Highway Administration has announced the availability of $700 million through the Charging and Fueling Infrastructure Discretionary Grant Program to strategically deploy alternative fueling infrastructure projects (including propane) in urban and rural communities in publicly accessible locations, including downtown areas and local neighborhoods, particularly in underserved and disadvantaged communities. In addition, a portion of the funding will be reserved to deploy infrastructure along federally-designated refueling corridors. Applications must be submitted electronically through Grants.gov no later than 11:59 p.m., Eastern Time, on Tuesday, May 30, 2023. Eligible applicants include states, local governments, special purpose districts or public authorities with a transportation function, including port authorities, Indian tribes, and U.S. Territories.

NPGA has compiled a list of every federally-designated Autogas refueling corridor in each state, an FAQ on the program, and letter to send to local and state government entities on NPGA’s member dashboard under the Fight Electrification tab.
