DOE Seeks Public Feedback and Input on New Domestic Manufacturing Conversion Grants for Electrified Vehicles Program

Issues Request for Information and Announces Virtual Workshops on
May 4 and May 5, 2023  

The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Manufacturing and Energy Supply Chains (MESC) has released a Request for Information (RFI) to seek public input that will help shape the Domestic Manufacturing Conversion Grants program. This grant program, authorized by President Joe Biden's Inflation Reduction Act, will provide grants for the conversion of domestic manufacturing capability across the supply chain to support the production of electrified vehicles, including hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.

MESC will hold two workshops (May 4 and May 5) that will provide a forum for stakeholders to share perspectives on the opportunities and challenges for the domestic conversion of manufacturing across the supply chain towards the vision and goals of the landmark Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (IRA) Section 50143. Interested parties should register to attend either workshop and can submit a 3-minute video providing their perspectives on this program, if they desire.  

Register for May 4, 2023 at 1:00–5:00 p.m. ET

Register for May 5, 2023 at 1:00–5:00 p.m. ET

Through this RFI and workshops, MESC is soliciting feedback from manufacturers, minority-owned businesses, academia, research laboratories, government agencies, State and local officials, labor unions, Tribes, community-based organizations, and other parties on issues related to design and implementation of the manufacturing conversion program. 

RFI responses must be submitted electronically as an attachment to by May 9, 2023, at 5 p.m. ET.
