The U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Maritime Administration announced a notice of funding opportunity for port and intermodal infrastructure-related projects through the Port Infrastructure Development Program.
A total of $230 million in grant funding is available, with $205 million reserved for grants to coastal seaports and Great Lakes ports.
The minimum award size is $1 million.
Generally, the federal cost-share does not exceed 80%, though it may be higher for certain categories of projects.
Grants are awarded on a competitive basis for projects that strengthen and modernize port infrastructure and support the nation’s long-term economic vitality.
DOT will host a series of webinars to provide technical assistance during the grant application process.
The deadline to submit an application is July 30, 2021, and more information can be found here.
