More about the MMFP:

The MMFP is designed for mobility and electrification companies with solutions that create safer, more equitable and environmentally conscious transportation for all Michigan residents. Applicants do not need to be based in Michigan to apply, but should be interested in or planning on long-term growth in Michigan. Grants are focused on catalyzing and scaling mobility solutions across three primary focus areas: 

  • Sustainable Futures: Improve environmental sustainability by encouraging EV adoption and the buildout of EV charging infrastructure
  • Equitable Futures: Alleviate mobility barriers and increase access to affordable and reliable transportation options
  • Multimodal Transportation: Modernize existing transportation systems and keep Michigan at the forefront across all connected and autonomous transportation modes

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis every three months, and the next application window is October 1 – December 31, 2021.
