PennDOT solicits grant applications for multimodal projects


The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is seeking applications for fiscal-year 2023 Transportation Improvement Project Funding under the state’s Multimodal Transportation Fund (MTF).

Projects receiving funding should coordinate local land use with transportation assets to enhance existing communities; improve streetscape, lighting, sidewalk facilities and pedestrian safety; improve connectivity or utilization of existing transportation assets; or advance transit-oriented development, PennDOT officials said in a press release.

Projects are selected based on safety benefits, regional economic conditions, technical and financial feasibility, job creation, energy efficiency and operational sustainability, officials added. The deadline to apply is Nov. 14.  Information on how to apply is available on the PennDOT website.

Eligible applicants include municipalities, councils of governments, business and nonprofit organizations, economic development organizations, public transportation agencies, public airports, airport authorities, and port and rail entities.

FY23 grant winners will be announced next year. In FY2022, PennDOT awarded 56 projects totaling $47.8 million in funding throughout 28 counties.

"The MTF helps support projects that keep people safe and connected, no matter who they are or how they travel," said PennDOT Secretary Yassmin Gramian.
