Grants to Tennessee municipalities and county governments for infrastructure projects that better meet the transportation needs of transit users, pedestrians, and bicyclists. Applicants are required to submit a letter of intent prior to a full grant application. Funding is intended to support projects that address accessibility and existing gaps along state routes and at transit hubs. Grants may be used for the construction of new facilities, reconstruction of existing facilities to meet current design standards, and rehabilitation of existing facilities.
Multimodal Access Grant funding is intended to support the construction of pedestrian, bicycle, and transit infrastructure along State Routes. As such, applications should request construction funding. Applications may also request funds for scoping, design, and right-of-way acquisition. While all listed phases of work are eligible, projects having already completed significant preliminary engineering are likely to score highly on project readiness criteria.
