The Communities Taking Charge Accelerator funding opportunity announcement (FOA) seeks applications that will help further the Joint Office’s vision of a future where everyone can ride and drive electric. This FOA will fund innovative approaches to expanding EV adoption and charging access, particularly at the local level in urbanized areas where land use, density, car ownership rates, grid considerations, and other factors create unique needs and considerations for electrifying the transportation network where the demand for transportation access is at its highest density.

Topic Areas

The following topics are included in this funding opportunity. Applications can be proposed exclusively as planning projects, exclusively as demonstration and/or deployment projects, or as a combination of both planning and demonstration and/or deployment.

  • Topic 1: Solving for No-Home Charging: Expanding Charging Access for Privately Owned E-Mobility – The objective of this topic is to fund planning and/or demonstration and/or deployment projects that explore innovative e-mobility charging solutions for individuals without access to home charging for their electric vehicles and mobility devices (e.g. cars, e-bikes, e-scooters, electric wheelchairs, etc.).
  • Topic 2: Expanding E-Mobility Solutions through Electrified Micro, Light and Medium-Duty Fleets – The objective of this topic is to fund projects that conduct planning and/or demonstration and/or deployment efforts around innovative charging and deployment solutions for electrified ultra-light, micro, light, and medium-duty fleets that transport people through shared rides, shared vehicles (including micromobility), or transit operations, and that transport goods to communities through last mile delivery vehicles.
  • Topic 3: Managed Charging for Clean Reliable Energy – The objective of this topic is to fund projects that conduct planning and/or demonstration and/or deployment efforts that accelerate solutions in the EV charging ecosystem. Topic 3 will provide requirements and specifications for end-to-end managed charging functionality including charging and communication systems and can include demonstrations of these systems. The intent is to provide resources and solutions into ecosystems supporting open-source distribution and may also contribute to Standards Development Organizations (SDO) for industry consensus.
