DDOT Accepting Applications for Transportation Alternatives Projects
Applications for Funding Are Due November 1, 2013

(Washington D.C.) The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is now accepting applications for the Transportation Alternatives Program. Approximately $1.2 million in funding is available citywide for non-traditional projects that are linked to the District’s transportation system. Applications will be accepted through November 1, 2013, and the projects selected will be announced in January 2014.

Each Transportation Alternative project must (1) relate to surface transportation and (2) qualify under one of the seven eligible activities geared towards bicycle and pedestrian activities, community improvements, environmental mitigation, as well as recreational trails. The projects must be consistent with the mission, policies, and plans of District agencies (e.g. Sustainable DC and the Office of Planning’s Comprehensive Plan). Additionally, changes in federal legislation require that non-profit organizations must partner with a local government entity, transit agency, or a natural resource or public-land agency to apply.

Online applications, details about eligible activities, sponsors, and further submittal information can be found online at http://ddot.dc.gov/DC/DDOT/Projects+and+Planning/Transportation+Alternatives.

Funding for the projects is provided through the Federal Highway Administration by the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21).

For additional details please contact Mr. Stephen Hurst at 202-671-4580 or stephen.hurst@dc.gov.
