ITS grants available for multistate projects

State departments of transportation can now apply for grants from the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) for multistate, multimodal projects that involve Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS).

A total of $7 million in grants has been made available from USDOT's Multistate Corridor and Management (MCOM) program. A current Federal Register notice encourages organizations involved in ITS-related activities that could be supported through the MCOM program to partner with state departments of transportation to apply before the April 2 deadline.

For example, corridor planning and analysis would be eligible for MCOM grants. USDOT may award funds to one project or multiple proposals.
