Congresswoman Nanette Barragán (D-CA), along with 24 of her House colleagues, introduced the “Electric Vehicles for All Act” (H.R. 6662) on February 9. If enacted, the bill would create a grant program run by the U.S. Department of Energy that would facilitate electric vehicle (EV) sharing services at public housing projects.
The bill would appropriate $50 million each year from 2022 to 2031 to facilitate the development and maintenance of EV sharing services. The secretary of the Department of Energy would be charged with consulting with both HUD and the U.S. Department of Transportation in developing the sharing services.
After consultation with resident leaders and tenants, NLIHC endorsed the “EVs for All Act.”
