The Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs (ADECA) has announced its recipients for the 2023 Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Grant Program. This year’s funding totaled $1.2 million and will support projects in Dothan, Gadsden, Montgomery County, Phenix City and Wedowee.

The grants are awarded to help Alabama be ready as more electric vehicles are purchased and travel the state highways.
