MCDOT Grant Submissions

The Montgomery County Department of Transportation applies for multiple competitive grants each year to assist in funding projects involving infrastructure and engineering projects, transportation and safety.
 
Even with the second-largest County budget, next to schools, MCDOT has many projects within the department that compete for funding. Transportation and infrastructure projects are complicated in that they require a process that includes a study to determine needs, a planning period, community input and engagement period, plan development and approvals before they can begin. Additionally, projects are often approved through the County’s annual financial approval process in pieces and rely on the priorities of elected officials, which are sometimes subject to change.
 
With multiple projects at different stages and with different funding levels allocated, grant funds can assist in moving projects forward. These applications work to serve public benefit and reduce the amount of County dollars spent.
 
Recently, grant funding has helped pay for free transit fares during the pandemic, bridge rehabilitation projects and purchasing zero-emission buses.
