Application Now Open for VDOT Ready, Set, Go! Transportation Alternatives Grant Program

Do you have a transportation issue in your community? Are you looking to develop the right-sized solution? The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) recently launched a new pilot program, called the Ready, Set, Go! Grant, designed to assist Virginia’s smaller-sized communities in identifying, evaluating and reporting achievable, affordable and targeted non-motorized improvements. If selected for funding, a consultant-led team will assist <50,000 population communities to prepare for their potential FY25-26 Transportation Alternatives application (next round begins in Spring 2023). These project evaluations will provide the preliminary information needed to apply for federal Transportation Alternatives funding.

Provided at no cost to local governments, applications will be accepted until Friday, October 21, 2022. Eligibility is limited to non-MPO communities with a 2020 census population of <50,000.

Award announcements are expected on November 04, 2022. Ready, set, apply!
