Accelerated DOT Municipal Aid Grant Cycle & Resource Center Announced

On Thursday, Governor Murphy announced an accelerated NJDOT Municipal Aid grant cycle and the creation of a Local Aid Resource Center. Starting with SFY20, NJDOT will be modifying the application scheduled accepting grant applications beginning this May 13 through July 19, with the intent to announce new grant recipients in November. This applies to the $151.25 million Municipal Aid grant program with an additional $10 million for Urban Aid, as well as to the Bikeways, Safe Streets to Transit, and Transit Village grant programs – each of which has $1 million available to local communities. This accelerate calendar should assist calendar year municipalities by working lining up the state calendar with the municipalities calendar year budget.

The new Local Aid Resource Center will provide one-stop shopping for local government managers by providing hands-on resources for the application process, raising awareness of grant cycles, and proactively communicating pertinent information. The Resource Center will provide training for submitting applications, assist local governments in preparing and submitting documents to meet state and federal requirements, and help identify issues and develop solutions to ensure municipalities receive support well in advance.
