DOT is combining three major discretionary grant programs and two fiscal years of funding into one Multimodal Projects Discretionary Grant (MPDG) opportunity to reduce the burden for state and local applicants and increase the pipeline of “shovel-worthy” projects that are now possible because of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

The Infrastructure for Rebuilding America (INFRA) program is a competitive program. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law provides approximately $8 billion for INFRA over 5 years, of which approximately $2.7 billion will be made available through this notice.

Applications will be evaluated on six outcome criteria, economic analysis, project readiness, and statutory requirements. The six outcome criteria are:

  1. safety;
  2. state of good repair;
  3. economic impacts, freight movement, and job creation;
  4. climate change, resilience, and the environment;
  5. equity, multimodal options, and quality of life; and
  6. innovation areas: technology, project delivery, and financing.

See notice for expanded eligibility list.
