Low-Carbon Transportation Materials Grants

Federal Agency


Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)


To reimburse or provide incentives for the use of construction materials and products that have substantially lower levels of embodied greenhouse gas emissions.

Applicant and/or Project Eligibility Requirements

Reimbursement or incentive are only available for a project on a Federal-aid highway, a tribal transportation facility, a Federal lands transportation facility, or a Federal lands access transportation facility.

Decarbonization Considerations

Low carbon materials and products must be used in projects funded by the grant. DOT seeks to fund activities that reduce GHG emissions from materials used in the transportation sector.

Equity Considerations

Consider utilizing low-carbon materials to address potential localized emissions impacts on low-income and disadvantaged communities and other stakeholders that may be affected by the construction of highways or transportation facilities.

Other Notes

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. More information on the Notice of Funding Opportunity for non-State applicants will be posted on in the coming months.
