A statewide total of 198 grant applications were received and requested approximately $62 million for: Sustainable Communities Competitive, Strategic Partnerships (including transit), and the third and final year of Adaptation Planning. Of these applications, 84 transportation planning projects were selected for grant awards, totaling approximately $27.8 million. Award and Non-Award lists for each grant are provided below. In addition, Metropolitan Planning Organizations will receive $12.5 million in Sustainable Communities Formula grants to further their Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy.
