As part of the VW settlement, Electrify America and its partner SemaConnect are taking applications, first-come, first-served, for grants that cover installation, purchase and maintenance of charging in Multi-family housing (condos, apartments, townhouses, etc) and Workplaces, in the Washington DC area.

Grants are available for up to $75,000 for multi-family charging and for up to $100,000 for workplace charging, including:

  1. Capital Expenditures
  2. Operating Expenditures
  3. Network Services – Through 12/31/2026
  4. Warranty Services – Through 12/31/2026

In other words, a turn-key solution enabling EV and PHEV drivers to charge successfully at home and work.

Given the abundance of multi-family housing in the Washington DC area, EVADC often hears from folks living in apartments, town-homes, condos, etc, that they would consider buying EV’s and PHEV’s if they only had home charging, in a similar fashion to the way single-family homeowners do.  Here’s your chance to get a first-class Level 2 (about 30 miles of range added per hour of charging) installation at your apartment, condo or town-home.  This is the type of charging in the majority of single-family homes








The “Charging Pyramid”.  Cars spend most of their lives parked at home.
