LOS ANGELES, Calif. (5/20/2021) – The U.S. Secretary of Transportation recently announced $1 billion will be available through the competitive Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity (RAISE) program. And, BYD stands ready to assist with application information.
RAISE, formerly known as BUILD and TIGER, now includes funding opportunities for projects addressing climate change, including energy storage solutions, electric buses and trucks, and the planning and construction of electric vehicle charging stations.
With total solutions for green energy generation and storage, BYD is the USA’s industry leader in battery electric buses and trucks with over 600 vehicles at work across America. BYD’s electric buses meet and exceed Buy America standards.
Projects for RAISE funding will be evaluated based on merit criteria that include safety, environmental sustainability, quality of life, economic competitiveness, state of good repair, innovation, and partnership. Within these criteria, the Department will prioritize projects that can demonstrate improvements to racial equity, reduce impacts of climate change and create good-paying jobs.
