This webinar, hosted by the NASEO Transportation Committee will take a look back at those processes to identify key benefits and lessons learned. The webinar will feature members of the teams in Iowa and Pennsylvania that completed their states' EV planning exercises, as well as the Greenlining Institute to address how equity and environmental justice can be integrated EV planning.

September 8, 2020: State Financing for Alternative Fuels: Moving Beyond the VW Settlement
The Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Trust has provided states with unprecedented levels of funding to support alternative fuel vehicle deployment and infrastructure development. This has helped states achieve key goals for air quality, fuel and cost savings, and climate change mitigation by reducing the reliance on petroleum. Moving forward, many states are interested in supporting alternative fuels beyond funding provided from the VW Settlement. This webinar will look at funding sources being leveraged by states to continue funding alternative fuels.
