The U.S. State of Maryland’s FY19 Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Program (AFIP) opened on July 1, 2018. The FY19 AFIP is intended to aid in the development of alternative fuel refilling/charging infrastructure. As such, the Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) anticipates issuing one or more grants to applicants for the installation of alternative fuel refilling/charging stations in Maryland.
The FY19 AFIP now extends project eligibility to private natural gas and propane fueling stations. DC fast charger stations and ethanol fueling stations are still required to be publicly accessible.
This program provides grants for the installation in the State of privately run and (preferably) publicly accessible:
- CNG refueling stations utilizing fast fill dispensers
- LNG fueling stations
- Combo stations (CNG/LNG)
- Hydrogen refueling stations
- and other alternative fuel stations
Awards will be issued on a competitive basis. Applications are now being accepted through December 31, 2018.
