BlueGreen Alliance Responds to the U.S. Federal Highway Administration’s Request for Comment on the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Formula Program
Protecting and uplifting the workers who will make the NEVI Formula Program a physical reality is not at odds with rapid deployment and installation of EV charging infrastructure, but a precursor to it.
The NEVI Formula Program represents a historic federal investment in curbing greenhouse gas and local air pollution from motorized transportation. We hope to see a successful NEVI Formula Program rollout that contributes to a safe, reliable, and nationwide network of union-made, installed, and maintained charging infrastructure that maximizes benefits for workers and disadvantaged communities. We look forward to supporting FHWA in its efforts to guide state-level deployment of funds through our comment on this rulemaking, and through any other future opportunities to shape the NEVI Formula Program.
