(HARRISBURG) – A PennDOT grant period was opened for transportation improvement projects around the state, according to Senator John R. Gordner (R-27).
Funds are made available through the Act 89 Multimodal Transportation Fund. Last year, over $43 million was awarded in 23 counties across the state through the program.
“The multimodal program was an important part of Act 89 when my colleagues and I passed it,” said Senator Gordner. “I would highly encourage any eligible entity to apply for these very important and useful grant funds.”
Applications will be accepted through November 8, 2019. Grant recipients will be determined by the Department early next year. Funds are anticipated to be released in July of 2020.
Eligible projects include: Enhancement of roadways, bridges, transit facilities and park and ride facilities; sidewalk and crosswalk safety improvements; and other related issues. Eligible entities include: municipalities, council of governments, businesses and non-profit organizations, economic development organizations, public transportation agencies, airports and rail entities.
