NOW OPEN: 2024 Active Transportation Microgrants

May 7, 2024

The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CT DOT) is soliciting projects for the 2024 Active Transportation Microgrant Program. This program provides funding for a variety of transportation projects including equitable, safe, accessible, and sustainable access to transportation by making conditions safer for people of all ages to walk, bike and roll, thereby encouraging more people to use these healthy and environmentally sustainable modes of travel.

Municipalities, schools, school districts, and nonprofit organizations are encouraged to apply. Funding for this grant is limited to $5,000 and can only be used for eligible active transportation non-infrastructure items. Costs associated with engineering; rights-of-way negotiations and acquisitions; utility relocation; and public involvement, are the responsibility of the organization applying.

Applications for these grants are accepted on a rolling basis each quarter contingent upon available funding. Applications will be collected, reviewed, and awarded based on available program funds. Organizations will be permitted to apply for Active Transportation Microgrants twice during a calendar year. An organization must spend the entirety of their first grant before being awarded a second grant. Microgrants may not be used for expenses made prior to the start date of the award. The upcoming quarterly deadlines for the Active Transportation Microgrants are:

June 27, 2024 

September 27, 2024

December 30, 2024
