Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Deployment (EVID) Program
Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT); Federal Highway Administration (FHWA); BIL
The Arkansas Department of Transportation’s (ARDOT) Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Deployment (EVID) Program is a competitive procurement program charged with distributing NEVI Formula Program funds. During this first year of the EVID Program, funding will be granted to eligible EV charging station projects that fill gaps on Arkansas Interstates and Alternative Fuel Corridors (AFCs) leading to fully built out certification by Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). Arkansas’ initial allocation of NEVI Formula Program funds are directed by the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) and United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) rules for use in first building EV charging stations along Arkansas portions of the Federal Interstate Highway system and FHWA designated AFCs. The Arkansas Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Deployment Plan and other resources can be viewed at ardot.gov/evplan.
ARDOT’s EVID program is being released through a Request for Proposals (RFP) to award NEVI Formula Program funding to eligible entities to install, own, operate, maintain, and report on NEVI Formula Program compliant EV charging stations throughout the state. Proposals will be evaluated using criteria outlined in the Responsiveness to Review Criteria Narrative Form (Form EVID-06).
