WASHINGTON (AP) — The Biden administration is awarding nearly $2 billion in grants to help restart or expand electric vehicle manufacturing and assembly sites in eight states, including the presidential battlegrounds of Michigan, Pennsylvania and Georgia. The Energy Department will issue grants totaling $1.7 billion to General Motors, Stellantis and other automakers to create or retain thousands of union jobs and support auto-based communities. Besides the three battleground states, grants also will go to EV facilities in Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland and Virginia. The White House says that the grants cover a broad range of the automotive supply chain, including electric motorcycles and school buses, hybrid powertrains, heavy-duty commercial truck batteries and electric SUVs.
