U.S. Department of Transportation: Nationally Significant Federal Lands and Tribal Projects Program
The Nationally Significant Federal Lands and Tribal Projects Program (NSFLTP) of The Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act) provides funding for the construction, reconstruction, and rehabilitation of nationally-significant projects within, adjacent to, or accessing federal and tribal lands. This Program provides an opportunity to address significant challenges across the nation for transportation facilities that serve federal and tribal lands.
The NSFLTP Program provides discretionary funding for projects that have an estimated construction cost of at least $25,000,000. Construction projects with an estimated cost equal to and exceeding $50,000,000 receive priority consideration in the selection process. Projects must have at least 10% of costs matched by funds not provided under any U.S. Department 0f Transportation programs authorized under titles 23 or 49 of the U.S. Code, unless authorized under any other provision of law.
Amount: A total of up to $300,000,000 is available. There is no established maximum project cost.
Eligibility: Entities eligible to receive funds under the Federal Lands Access Program (23 United State Code (U.S.C.) 204), the Federal Lands Transportation Program (23 U.S.C. 203), and the Federal Lands Planning Program (23 U.S.C. 201) may apply, except that a state, county, or unit of local government may only apply if sponsored by an eligible federal land management agency (FLMA) or federally recognized Indian tribe.
Note: The next application deadline is December 17, 2018. After that, subsequent deadlines will be on the last business day of the next fiscal quarter.
