The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), signed into law on November 15, 2021, reauthorizes federal surface transportation programs for the next five years. This is a historic opportunity to repair one-in-five miles of our roadways and more than 45,000 bridges in the United States. IIJA includes funding to rebuild and reinvest in our railways, public transit infrastructure, and the safety of our transportation system and invest billions in transformational projects that will create good-paying union jobs, grow the economy, and make our transportation system safer and more resilient.
In addition to the continuation of formula funding programs, IIJA provides funding through a wide range of competitive grant programs. Opportunities to apply for the grant programs are noticed by the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) through Notice of Funding Opportunities (NOFO). The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) aims to package grant applications to leverage federal funding to advance the delivery of projects that are in alignment with the department’s Mission, Vision, and Goals. This webpage will be updated as NOFOs are issued, and application packets are developed.
