Notice of Funding Opportunity for the Nationally Significant Federal Lands and Tribal Projects (NSFLTP) Program
The Federal Highway Administration today published a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) in the Federal Register for $100 million for the Nationally Significant Federal Lands and Tribal Projects (NSFLTP) Program.
The Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST-Act) established the program to provide federal financial assistance for the construction, reconstruction or rehabilitation of transportation projects providing access to or located next to or on federal or tribal lands.
Under the NSFLTP, the federal share of a project can be up to 90 percent and must be used to improve the condition of a critical transportation facility. Projects over $50M are encouraged but the program will accept project applications $25M or higher. Federal lands and tribes can apply directly for grants under the program. States and local agencies may also apply, but only if sponsored by a federal land management agency or tribe.
The NOFO is available at https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=336200.
