Deadline Extended to Submit Applications for the New Integrated Corridor Planning Grants
The FHWA is extending the application period for the Integrated Corridor Management Deployment Planning Grants, which was issued through a notice on November 1, 2013. The original application period is set to close on December 31, 2013. The extension is based on input received from DOT stakeholders that the December 31 closing date does not provide sufficient time for submission of applications.
Formal applications must be submitted no later than January 17, 2014 to be assured consideration. Applications should be submitted through http://www.grants.gov.
On November 1, 2013, the FHWA published in the Federal Register a notice regarding the Integrated Corridor Management Deployment Planning Grants. The purpose of this notice was to invite states, metropolitan planning organizations, and local governments that intended to initiate or continue Integrated Corridor Management development with their partners, such as arterial management agencies, tolling authorities, and transit authorities, to apply for deployment planning grants. The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act authorizes the FHWA to encourage intelligent transportation systems deployment on the national highway system through demonstrations and grant programs. The purpose of this program is to promote the integrated management and operations of the transportation system, thereby improving multimodal transportation system management and operations.
