IDOT is Accepting Applications for ITEP Transportation Grant Program

Yesterday, the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) announced that it is now accepting applications for the 2018 Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program (ITEP).

The ITEP is a federally funded, competitive grant program that promotes alternate modes of transportation such as bike trails and streetscapes. Local matching funds are required, and eligible project sponsors or local entities with taxing authority may apply. All ITEP funds must be fully obligated within four years of award notification.

Approximately $40 million will be awarded this cycle, and each awardee may receive up to $2 million per project.
Grant applications will be accepted through Dec. 1, 2017.
Grant announcements for selected projects are expected next spring.
