Advanced Transportation and Congestion Management Technologies Deployment Program - American Cities Climate Challenge

Advanced Transportation and Congestion Management Technologies Deployment Program

Federal Agency

Sub-Department

Federal Highway Administration (FHA)

Purpose

To make competitive grants for the development of model deployment sites for large scale installation and operation of advanced transportation technologies to improve safety, efficiency, system performance, and infrastructure return on investments.

Applicant and/or Project Eligibility Requirements

Eligible applicants are State or local governments, transit agencies, metropolitan planning organizations (MPO) representing a population of over 200,000, or other political subdivisions of a State or local government (such as publicly owned toll or port authorities), or a multijurisdictional group or consortia of research institutions or academic institutions.

Decarbonization Considerations

Ensuring a more efficient flow of public transit would cut greenhouse gas emissions and encourage transit ridership. Although proposals are not limited to DOT priorities, the DOT is particularly interested in deployment programs and projects that concern (1) climate change and environmental justice impacts; (2) integration of intelligent transportation systems with the Smart Grid and other energy distribution and charging systems; and (3) advanced public transportation systems.

Equity Considerations

Although proposals are not limited to DOT priorities, the DOT is particularly interested in deployment programs and projects that concern (1) racial equity and barriers to opportunity; (2) rural transportation access; and (3) improved access to transportation alternatives, including for underserved populations.

Helpful Tips

Partnership with the private sector or public agencies, including multimodal and multijurisdictional entities, research institutions, organizations representing transportation and technology leaders, or other transportation stakeholders is encouraged. Any application submitted by a sole research or academic institution and that is not part of a consortium will not be considered for selection.
