"P. Out of this appropriation, $1,100,000 the first year from the general fund is provided for the department to establish the EV Charger Multi-Family Dwelling Unit Pilot Grant Program. This program shall provide aid to existing multi-family dwelling units, of 25 units or more, to apply for matching funds to install at least Level 2 electric vehicle (EV) chargers. A multi-family dwelling unit is defined as any townhome, apartment, or condominium community with 25 or more units. The homeowner association (HOA), condo owner association (COA), or apartment complex owner may apply for grants through this program to offset a portion of the costs necessary to install new EV chargers. This pilot program shall allocate $100,000 for matching awards to each Congressional district. If, after June 30th, 2024, funds have not been requested in one Congressional District, the department may reallocate the remaining dollars to other Congressional districts based upon the backlog of grant applications. The department shall establish a minimum matching grant requirement of 25%, but may place a higher preference on making awards to organizations that provide a higher match. This pilot program will sunset on December 31st, 2024, unless renewed by the General Assembly. Any funds remaining at the end of the fiscal years 2023 and 2024 shall be carried forward into the next fiscal year by the department for the purposes described in paragraph P. At the end of fiscal year 2024, any unobligated funds shall revert to the general fund."


(This amendment creates and capitalizes an incentive program to help existing multi-family dwelling units install EV chargers with $1.1 million.)
