New York announces $23 million for transportation electrification initiatives

The state of New York has allocated $23 million in new funding for transportation electrification initiatives. The total includes: $8 million under the Direct Current Fast Charging program to install EV infrastructure in Buffalo, Rochester, and Syracuse, including in underserved communities; another $7 million in DCFC awards to ChargePoint and EvGateway to improve access in upstate New York; and $8 million for electric school buses and paratransit buses under the New York Truck Voucher Incentive Program.

The initiatives support the state’s goals under the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act to reduce carbon emissions by 85 percent by 2050 and to direct at least 35 percent of the benefits of clean energy investments to disadvantaged communities.

“By putting more electric buses on the road and installing fast chargers in underserved areas,” said Governor Kathy Hochul, “we can provide New Yorkers with access to the latest in sustainable transportation and set the stage for a brighter, cleaner future for all.”
