Beef Up Your Transportation Assets

Monday September 16th, 2019
Townships and/or councils of governments that want to improve transportation assets to increase pedestrian safety, revitalize transit, and enchance communities may apply for a grant from PennDOT's Multimodal Transportation Fund. (Please note: This fund is separate from the Multimodal Transportation Fund administered by DCED's Commonwealth Financing Authority.) Applications are due November 8.
Funds may be used for development, rehabilitation, and enhancement of transportation assets in existing communities, streetscaping, lighting, sidewalk enhancement, pedestrian safety, connectivity, and transit-oriented development.
Funding requires a match of at least 30% of the grant award. Matching funds from a county or municipality must be cash contributions from one or more counties or municipalities. Liquid fuels funds, Act 13 impact fees, and other statutorily allocated fees or taxes paid directly to a county or municipality may be used as a local match if the project is an eligible use of such funds.
Grants are available for projects with a total cost of $100,000 to $3 million.
For more information about the grants, visit PennDOT's Multimodal Transportation Fund webpage, call (717) 705-1230, or email Funding guidelines are available online as a downloadable PDF.
