The LCTM program is a discretionary program that focuses on accelerating the use of materials and products that have lower levels of embodied greenhouse gas emissions on eligible projects funded under Title 23.

From this Program, up to $1.2 billion is available to State DOTs for LCTM awards under the State Request for Applications (RFA). All awards of LCTM funds are available for obligation through September 30, 2026, and available for expenditure before September 30, 2031.

FHWA anticipates at least $22 million will be made available to each State DOT that addresses the eligible application factors and subfactors outlined in the RFA. Remaining funds available from the pool of $1.2 billion may be distributed equally among State DOTs that submit acceptable applications, not to exceed the amount requested in the State DOT's application. FHWA does not have a limit on maximum award size.

$800 million is available to non-State applicants for LCTM award under a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) in the coming months. The program requirements will be the same as for State DOTs.
