NOW OPEN: 2024 Active Transportation Microgrants

Mar 6, 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.

Applicants for these grants are accepted on a rolling basis 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.

To learn more and apply, please review the program application and solicitation memo attached. You can reach out to Gabriel Filer at SCRCOG via email: [email protected].
