The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) announces an opportunity to apply for up to $2.2 million in grants offered through the DC Fast Charging and Hydrogen Fueling Grant Program (Program), one of the funding programs under the Driving PA Forward Initiative. This funding is available for light-duty zero emission vehicle supply equipment projects that will improve air quality and protect public health and the environment in this Commonwealth by reducing emissions through expanded use of DC fast charging and hydrogen refueling infrastructures.

These entities may include school districts, municipal authorities, political subdivisions, State and local agencies, tribal governments, nonprofit entities, corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships and sole proprietorships which are incorporated or registered in the State, air quality or transportation organizations and metropolitan or rural planning organizations.
The Department will not reimburse grant recipients for project costs incurred prior to the grant performance period set forth in the applicable grant agreement. The Program Guidelines and Application Instructions are available on the Department's Driving PA Forward webpage at https://dep.pa.gov/DrivingPAForward/.
