The DOT is offering funds for early-stage infrastructure project development. This includes legal, technical, and financial assistance to advance infrastructure projects that may continue to be supported through DOT credit or grant programs.

Application Tips

  • You can apply again next year. If you don't get an award this year, you may apply again.
  • If possible, leverage funding from other grant programs. 
  • Location and project should be specific. 
The solution to the problem does not need to be identified in the application. 
  • This program will not fund research studies that result in multiple projects.
  • Applications cannot be saved in progress. It is best to type responses in a separate document and paste responses in the web form. Attachments to the application will not be allowed.
