Leveraging Project Awards

Since 1993, the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Vehicle Technologies Office (VTO) has distributed close to $460 million in transportation project awards, which are competitively awarded and cost-shared. Clean Cities coalition-supported projects have historically leveraged almost 2:1 in matching funds and in-kind contributions from private and public sector partners.
