Municipalities and not-for-profit groups are eligible to apply for funding. Applications submitted by not-for-profit organizations must be sponsored by a governmental entity.
Eligible projects must fall into one or more of five (5) federally established eligibility cateories. Thirty million dollars will be available for this application round.
Applications must be submitted to a NYSDOT Region on or by August 16, 2013. Awards will be announced by the end of the year.
This will be the last round of TEP, as the new surface transportation act, Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21), ended the Transportation Enhancement Program as a standalone program.
For further information on funding, rules & requirements, the Guidebook for application preparation, a fillable application form, a list of NYSDOT Regional TEP Coordinators, and, when available, workshop schedules, check out NYDOT’s program page here.
