The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) continues to have grants available and is requesting grant applications from eligible entities through the Accelerated Innovation Development (AID) Demonstration within the Technology and Innovation Deployment Program (TIDP) of the Fixing America’s Surface Technology (FAST) Act.
The AID Demonstration provides incentive funding for activities eligible for assistance in any phase of a highway transportation project between project planning and project delivery including: planning, financing, operation, structures, materials, pavements, environment and construction that address TIDP goals. FHWA expects $10 million to be made available for AID Demonstration in each of Fiscal Years 2017 through 2020, from amounts authorized under section 6002 of the FAST Act.
The Notice of Funding Opportunity for Accelerated Innovation Deployment Demonstration, originally published in the Federal Register on Sept. 1, 2016, is an open, rolling solicitation. The project must be authorized within six months of applying for AID Demonstration funding. Completed applications will be evaluated and award determinations made on a rolling basis until the program ends or funding is no longer available. Applications must be submitted through http://www.grants.gov.
