Surface Transportation Block Grant Program (STBGP)

Federal Agency


Federal Highway Administration (FHA)


To provide flexible funding that can preserve and improve the conditions and performance on any Federal-aid highway, bridge and tunnel projects on any public road, pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure, and transit capital projects, including intercity bus terminals.

Applicant and/or Project Eligibility Requirements

The Surface Transportation Block Grant Program is available for the roughly 1 million miles of Federal-aid highways, for bridges on any public road, and for transit capital projects.

Decarbonization Considerations

Surface transportation projects can help traffic move more efficiently, reduce traffic congestion, and reduce carbon emissions. Applicants should consider how surface highway projects, specifically, can reduce the number of vehicle miles traveled (VMT) and encourage public transit.

Equity Considerations

Surface transportation projects can target deficient infrastructure in underserved communities, providing local jobs in the process.
