Grants to USA states, local and tribal governments, regional and metropolitan planning organizations, special purpose districts, and political subdivisions for transportation initiatives. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended for surface transportation infrastructure projects with significant national or regional impact, or to improve and expand the surface transportation infrastructure in rural areas.
The purpose of this notice is to solicit applications for three funding opportunities: The National Infrastructure Project Assistance grants program (Mega), the Nationally Significant Multimodal Freight and Highways Projects grants program (INFRA), and the Rural Surface Transportation Grant program (Rural). Funds for the INFRA, Mega, and Rural funding opportunities will be awarded on a competitive basis for surface transportation infrastructure projects—including highway and bridge, intercity passenger rail, railway-highway grade crossing or separation, wildlife crossing, public transportation, marine highway, and freight projects, or groups of such projects.
To help streamline the process for applicants, the Department has combined the applications for the Mega, INFRA, and Rural programs into the MPDG common application. Applicants may choose to apply to one, two, or all three of these grant programs.) The Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 MPDG awards will be made for each of the three grant programs as appropriate and consistent with each grant program's statutory language. The FY 2022 MPDG round will be implemented, as appropriate and consistent with law, in alignment with the priorities in Executive Order 14052, Implementation of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (86 FR 64355), and will focus on supporting projects that improve safety, economic strength and global competitiveness, equity, and climate and sustainability consistent with the Department's strategic goals.
