Applications are being accepted by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation for its multimodal transportation fund.
PennDOT will evaluate and select applicants based on such criteria as safety benefits, regional economic conditions, technical and financial feasibility, job creation, energy efficiency, and operational sustainability.
“The fund allows us to assist communities with needed transportation improvements that otherwise may not move forward,” said PennDOT Secretary Leslie Richards. “This process represents an opportunity for worthwhile local projects to secure the support needed to come to fruition.”
The department has $40 million in grants available for fiscal years 2017 and 2018. Applications must be submitted by Dec. 16.
Grant winners will begin receiving the funding in July 2017.
