Michigan is receiving $70 million in grants from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to support the transition to electric vehicles. The awards are part of more than $131 million allocated by the Biden Administration to fund the development of innovative and equitable clean mobility options, alleviate supply chain concerns for EV batteries, and increase EV drive range. Overall, Michigan has secured more than $150 million through Charge Up Michigan and the federal Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to support the transition to EVs.

The approved grants are as follows:

    • A $60 million grant for research and development focused on EV batteries and charging systems, focusing on developing advanced technologies that will boost the performance and manufacturing capabilities of batteries.
    • $8.2 million to develop innovative and clean options for advanced integrated on-board charging systems.
    • $3.5 million to develop sustainable materials for hydrogen combustion engines.
    • $1 million to support research and development of novel lightweight materials for EVs.
