Bipartisan infrastructure law grant to Atlanta Regional Commission will expand free EV charging stations across metro Atlanta
Atlanta, Ga. — U.S. Senator Jon Ossoff is delivering new Federal resources through the bipartisan infrastructure law to build electric vehicle charging stations across metro Atlanta.
Sen. Ossoff is delivering $6,120,067 through the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Charging and Fueling Infrastructure Grant program to strengthen metro Atlanta’s electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
The bipartisan infrastructure law resources to the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) will fund hundreds of free EV chargers at existing charging sites across the metro area.
“I’m pleased to help deliver this investment to expand electric vehicle charging infrastructure in Georgia through the bipartisan infrastructure law. Every day, the bipartisan infrastructure law is upgrading transportation, energy, sewer and water, and broadband internet across our great state,” said Sen. Ossoff.
“As a region, we must prepare for the EV revolution that we know is coming, in a way that ensures no community is left behind. We are grateful that the U.S. Department of Transportation chose to invest in the Atlanta region’s future,” said Anna Roach, Executive Director & CEO of the Atlanta Regional Commission.
Sen. Ossoff continues delivering Federal resources through the bipartisan infrastructure law to strengthen Georgia’s infrastructure.
Earlier this week, Sen. Ossoff delivered new Federal funding to multiple Georgia school districts to purchase new school buses through the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Clean Bus Awards program.
In November, on the 2-year anniversary of the bipartisan infrastructure law, Sen. Ossoff announced the State of Georgia would receive over $1.8 billion in Fiscal Year 2024 to upgrade roads, bridges, highways, and other surface transportation systems through the bipartisan infrastructure law, which will boost the Georgia Department of Transportation’s ongoing work across Georgia.
