Surface Transportation Block Grant Program (STBGP)
Federal Highway Administration (FHA)
The Surface Transportation Block Grant Program promotes flexibility in state and local transportation decisions and provides flexible funding to best address state and local transportation needs.
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.
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.
Surface transportation projects can target deficient infrastructure in underserved communities, providing local jobs in the process.
