PennDot Taking Multimodal Fund Grant Applications

September 11, 2019

Applications are being taken by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation for grants from its multimodal transportation fund.

The grants can be used to help pay for improvements to railroads, transit facilities, roadways, bridges, park and ride facilities, and other transportation infrastructure in the state.

Eligible applicants include railroads, public transportation agencies, ports, municipalities, government entities, economic development organizations and business/nonprofit organizations. Projects should coordinate local land use with transportation assets to enhance existing communities.

The applications are due Nov. 8 and will be reviewed based on safety benefits, regional economic conditions, technical and financial feasibility, job creation, energy efficiency and operational sustainability.

Award winners will be announced next year with funding available in July 2020.

In 2018 PennDOT awarded $43 million in MTF grants to 49 projects in 23 counties.
