Applications Welcome for $5.575B in Infrastructure Project Funding

The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) is now accepting infrastructure project applications for up to $5.575 billion in funding from three major discretionary grant programs.

According to Railway Age, the USDOT in March 2022 piloted the combined NOFO for the National Infrastructure Project Assistance (Mega); Infrastructure for Rebuilding America (INFRA); and Rural Surface Transportation Grant (Rural) programs. The aim, it said, was “to make it easier for communities to apply to one, two or three major discretionary grant programs with a single application and a common set of criteria.” Following “overwhelmingly positive feedback,” the Department on June 27 reported deciding to continue with a combined NOFO for the 2023 application cycle. The combined application will also help the Department assist project sponsors match projects with the most appropriate grant program, it noted.

The deadline for applications is 11:59 p.m. EDT on Aug. 21, 2023.
