RAISE Grant Funding and Upcoming Webinars Set

The next round of U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity (RAISE) grant program is now open. $1.5 billion in competitive grant funding is available for a broad range of infrastructure projects and planning activities.
 This program helps communities around the country carry out road, rail, transit, and port projects with significant local or regional impact. Projects should improve safety, equity, climate, and sustainability. 
 Examples of projects that local governments may consider include:

  • Bridge and road projects
  • Intermodal transportation projects
  • Stormwater prevention, including replacing/rehabilitating culverts
  • Planning and pre-construction activities

While no dates have been set, DOT will be hosting a series of webinars in the coming weeks.

We also highly recommend discussing your potential projects with the Metropolitan Planning Organization, which can be a critical partner in getting your project added to the State Transportation Improvement Plan and are an excellent resource for technical assistance and planning as well. In New Jersey according to the US DOT the Metropolitan Planning Organizations are the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC), North Jersey Transportation Authority (NJTPA), and South Jersey Transportation Organization (SJTPO).  

 The application deadline is February 28, 2023.
