Grant Round Open for PennDOT and DCED Multimodal Transportation Fund Programs
Pennsylvania’s Department of Transportation (PennDOT) and Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) recently announced the opening of grant application rounds for their respective Multimodal Transportation Fund programs.
Both programs are very similar, with the intent to provide financial assistance to municipalities, councils of governments, businesses, economic development organizations, public transportation agencies, rail freight, passenger rail, and ports in order to improve transportation assets that enhance communities and encourage economic development through the investments in projects such as (but not limited to):

  • Pedestrian & Bicycle Facilities
  • Streetscape Improvements
  • Traffic Impact Mitigation
  • Local bridges & highways that aid the state system and local economic development
  • Improvements to connectivity and utilization of the local system
  • Projects supporting transit-oriented development
Grants are available for projects with a total cost of $100,000 or more and will not normally exceed $3,000,000. A minimum of a 30% match is required for projects to be considered eligible.
Applications for the PennDOT Multimodal Transportation Fund are due by 5:00 pm on March 30, 2018. More information about the PennDOT program can be accessed via the following link:
Applications for the DCED-Commonwealth Financing Authority Multimodal Transportation Fund are due by the close of business on July 31, 2018.  More information about the DCED program can be accessed via the following link:
