DEADLINE NOV. 1 — Attention manufacturers and suppliers: apply now for DOE Domestic Manufacturing Conversion Grants

Published on: October 28, 2023

The Department of Energy (DOE)’s Domestic Manufacturing Conversion Grants program is a new, one-time funding opportunity under the Inflation Reduction Act that will provide grants and loan guarantees to support domestic production of efficient hybrid, plug-in hybrid, plug-in electric drive, and hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles.

This includes production of hybrid or electric transit buses. Production includes vehicle assembly, component assembly, and manufacturing of related parts.

Funding priority will be given to grant proposals involving conversion, expansion, or retooling of existing facilities (or facilities that have recently ceased operation) to support the above. Priority will also be given to greenfield construction in the same general area of an existing or recently closed facility, as well as projects demonstrating substantial workforce benefits.

The funding opportunity is open until Wednesday, November 1 for initial concept papers (9-page maximum).

  • DOE will encourage a subset of applicants who submit concept papers to submit full applications. These applications will be due on January 9, 2024. Only applicants who have submitted concept papers will be eligible to submit full applications.

Please contact the Department of Energy at with any questions about this program.
