This weekend EWEB announced we are now accepting applications for the second annual Electric Mobility Community Grant program.

The Electric Mobility Community Grant provides funding to five non-profits, academic institutions, or public organizations to cover costs associated with their electric mobility projects. Grant awards will be up to $25,000 to cover up to 100% of project expenses. Grant funds must be used for a program that supports the community within EWEB’s service territory.

We opened the application period on Earth Day, April 22, 2023. Organizations interested in the grant are encouraged to visit our website at to review grant guidelines and download the application. Applications and supporting documentation are due on July 31, 2023.

All grant proposals are carefully considered by a grant committee and scored on project feasibility, use of funds, innovation and analysis, social equity and their education, environmental and community benefits. Special consideration will be given to projects that advance electric mobility in underserved communities, including areas without ample access to public charging.

Funding for Electric Mobility grants is in part made possible by the Oregon Clean Fuels Program, administered by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality. With the Clean Fuels Program, utilities earn credits for each electric vehicle (EV) within their service territory, which they can then sell. EWEB uses these funds to support the adoption of electric mobility in the community, including bringing access to the technology to underserved populations.

Last year we received ten applications and awarded five grants, for a total of $125,000 in funds. Grants were awarded to Lane County Public Works, University of Oregon, Shift Community Cycles, Lane Community College and Cascadia Mobility. The winning applicants covered a broad range of projects, including e-bike sharing programs, EV car charging stations and electric tricycles. You can learn more about these programs here.
