Federal Grant Opportunities for Sustainable Land Use/Transportation Plans

The federal partnership of US DOT, EPA and HUD is making available over $700 million in grants to cities, counties, MPOs, and transportation agencies for sustainable community plans with integrated transportation.  Grant proposals are due on July 26 and August 23, 2010.  For details outlining the individual federal grant opportunities, view the Federal Grant Matrix.  In order to be eligible for the HUD Community Challenge grants or DOT TIGER II grants, applicants must register here by COB on July 16th in order to ensure that they will receive their password in time to submit the pre-application, and can click here for the easy-to-follow application instructions.

Policy in Motion is offering a “Sustainable Community Grant Navigation” package to assist local governments in optimizing successful grant submissions for both the five federal grant opportunities totaling $748 million, and the California Proposition 84 grant awards totaling $22 million this cycle.  Consultancy services for the Navigation package include:

  1. overview of how federal and California policy direction ties into the scoring criteria for federal and California planning grants, and
  2. custom consultation for applicant on which grants to pursue and how to prepare grant materials through strategic planning submissions.
