The US Department of Transportation (DOT) has published this notice of funding opportunity that solicits applications for projects to be funded under the Local and Regional Project Assistance Program in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (“Bipartisan Infrastructure Law”). The Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity (RAISE) Grants program aims to fund capital investments in surface transportation that will have a significant local or regional impact. In addition to capital awards, DOT will award at least $75 million for eligible planning, preparation, or design of projects eligible for RAISE Grants that do not result in construction with FY2022 RAISE funding. In addition, DOT will award at least $15 million for projects located in areas of persistent poverty or historically disadvantaged communities. If either of these amounts is changed by the FY 2022 Appropriations Act, DOT will amend this Notice.
The application deadline is April 14, 2022. To learn more about this opportunity and to apply, visit the U.S. Department of Transportation.
