Affordable Mobility Platform

The overall goal of the Affordable Mobility Platform (AMP) Project is to reduce the barriers to mobility options and electric vehicle (EV) adoption facing underserved communities, particularly residents of affordable housing. The project will demonstrate that shared EVs can become valuable, highly utilized, and self-sustaining community transportation assets where the needs of employees and residents of affordable housing developments are served by the same shared vehicles. Along with the deployment of EVs and EV infrastructure, AMP will conduct data analysis, education, and outreach that leverages real world observations and lessons learned collected from these communities over the course of the project.

Electric Vehicle Market Stimulation in Divested Economies 2021 Low Greenhouse Gas Emissions Projects Metropolitan Energy Center In progress Nov 2021

Electric Vehicle Market Stimulation in Divested Economies

This project supports electric vehicle (EV) purchases, charging station installations, and outreach efforts to notify communities of these resources. The funds will help small businesses and rural cities accelerate their transition to electric vehicles in Missouri and Kansas. The project includes eight partner businesses and municipalities operating within Kansas and Missouri environmental justice areas, opportunity zones, and other underserved areas. The project includes deployment as well as an innovative 15% cost share "overmatch" from its eight core funding recipients, which is leverage to implement a small grants program for underserved communities. These grant recipients will be able to define project features guiding local benefit like installing public EV charging stations in parking lots and curbsides near multi-unit residential complexes and retail businesses. The small grants program will place EV charging stations within underserved or rural areas that feel the effects of environmental justice issues. Diesel emissions from heavy-duty vehicles and off-road machinery contribute to early deaths, asthma rates, and family illness, keeping people away from jobs and school. Those are just some of the health and social impacts from diesel fumes that affect the community members the Metropolitan Energy Center serves. The project launched in March 2022. To learn more about the project or available funding, contact Miriam Bouallegue.
