    As we continue our work in partnership to advance all parts of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) – I am pleased to announce that the US DOT has just launched a new informational portal that should provide good help to understand the various programs contained in BIL - and provide information on upcoming grant opportunities.   The DOT Navigator https://www.transportation.gov/dot-navigator  is a new “one-stop shop” that provides essential information to help our stakeholders and communities apply for grants, identify existing resources, and answer questions on how to connect with funding opportunities provided through BIL.  It provides an array of resources across the Department designed to provide technical assistance and help stakeholders navigate the grant application, transportation planning, project delivery, funding and financing, and implementation processes.  There are specific focus areas included in this portal to provide informational assistance based upon the type of stakeholder – such as State DOTs, Local Governments, Tribal Nations, MPOs, Transit Agencies, and Other Transportation Stakeholders such as Non-Profits, etc.

     

    I encourage you all to check it out as we work to implement the BIL’s once-in-a-generation investment in our National Infrastructure that will help grow the economy, enhance U.S. competitiveness, create good jobs, and build a Safe, Resilient, and Equitable transportation future!

    Upcoming Competitive Grant Opportunities

    The U.S. DOT has posted a schedule of anticipated grant funding opportunities in the coming months. This list should offer a little more predictability on the timing of grant applications for various transportation programs under the IIJA.

    Click here for the notice. The list is not comprehensive but includes many programs of interest, including Bridge Investment, Railroad Crossing Elimination, Safe Streets, Culvert Removal and Restoration, and Consolidated Rail Infrastructure & Safety Improvements, among many others. The notice will be updated with additional programs and dates.

    Also, just a reminder about the $2.9 billion currently available in competitive grants for major projects under three combined multimodal programs - Mega, Rural, and INFRA.  Those applications are due May 23. Click here for the announcement and links to fact sheets, instructional webinars for applicants, and FAQs.

     

    State Highway and Transit Funding Distribution

    Following enactment of the final appropriations package for Fiscal Year 2022, last week the U.S. DOT published the official apportionments of highway and transit formula funds to state and local governments.

    The Federal Highway Administration notice is here.  (Scroll to the bottom of the page for the state-by-state funding table.)

    The Federal Transit Administration announcement is here.  (The notice includes links to the state totals and specific amounts for local urbanized areas.)
