FHWA Offers $60 Million in Transportation Technology Grants

The Federal Highway Administration has made $60 million in grant money available for states and cities that are leading transportation-related technology projects.

The agency published a Notice of Funding Opportunity on April 18 allowing agencies to compete for grants through its Advanced Transportation and Congestion Management Technologies Deployment Program.

“These grants promote the use of cutting-edge technology to improve safety and reduce traffic congestion,” acting Federal Highway Administrator Brandye Hendrickson said. “Innovation will improve connections between rural communities and provide all Americans with safer transportation options.”

This grant program was created in the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act as a way to improve the performance of the transportation system, reduce congestion and improve safety.
