Local Government Playbook

The Local Government Playbook contains recommendations for how counties, cities, and towns can leverage federal investments in electric vehicle infrastructure. It provides a “checklist” of actions and strategies that local governments can enact now and in the future, including best practices, innovative policy approaches, and lessons from previous charging deployments. 

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and Inflation Reduction Act—signed by President Biden in November 2021 and September 2022—dedicate funding to establish a nationwide network of EV charging stations and incentivize EV purchases. Local governments will play an instrumental role in ensuring these funds are implemented efficiently, effectively and equitably.  

The Local Government Playbook serves as a tool to support the local deployment of EV infrastructure and implementation of federally funded programs. Topics covered include near- and long-term policy recommendations, state and regional planning, stakeholder engagement, community engagement and site planning. The report also links to additional resources that local government officials can use to support transportation electrification projects.
