The Pilot Program is intended to fund comprehensive planning that supports economic development, ridership, multimodal connectivity and accessibility, increased transit access for pedestrian and bicycle traffic, and mixed-use development near transit stations.  For projects seeking CIG program funding, this comprehensive planning work will help them develop the information that addresses the CIG Program's evaluation criteria, increasing their competitiveness for funding from the CIG program. For projects that have received CIG construction grants since July 2012 when MAP-21 and this Pilot Program was enacted, this comprehensive planning work will help leverage the Federal investment already made and ensure successful transit corridors. The program also encourages identification of infrastructure needs and engagement with the private sector.

The PDM Program, authorized by Section 203 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, is designed to assist States, territories, Federally-recognized tribes, and local communities in implementing a sustained pre-disaster natural hazard mitigation program. The goal is to reduce overall risk to the population and structures from future hazard events, while also reducing reliance on Federal funding in future disasters. This program awards planning and project grants and provides opportunities for raising public awareness about reducing future losses before disaster strikes. PDM grants are funded annually by Congressional appropriations and are awarded on a nationally competitive basis. FEMA will prioritize the competitive projects for selection up to the available funding as follows: • Climate Resilient Mitigation Activities (CRMA), including Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR), Floodplain and Stream Restoration (FSR), and Flood Diversion and Storage (FDS); and pre- or post-wildfire mitigation activities or any mitigation action that utilizes green infrastructure approaches • Non-flood hazard mitigation projects (e.g., seismic, wildfire, landslide and wind) and non-acquisition/elevation/mitigation reconstruction flood mitigation activities (e.g., stormwater management and flood control measures) • Acquisition, elevation and mitigation reconstruction projects • Generators for critical facilities as identified in a FEMA-approved Mitigation Plan

This grant funding opportunity seeks to install DC fast charging stations on corridors that facilitate interregional travel within California as well as to and from Nevada, Arizona, and the Oregon coast. This corridor fast charging network will support alternative transportation fuel and vehicle technology goals of the State of California, such as the goal  of having sufficient ZEV infrastructure that is able to support up to 1 million ZEVs by 2020.
Corridor charging also gives existing and prospective electric vehicle owners the assurance that they can recharge when driving long distances along a freeway or highway. Establishing an adequate charging infrastructure will help to increase range confidence, one of the prime concerns believed to influence consumer purchase and use of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs). The deployment of a DC fast charging network will enable interregional and interstate travel by electric vehicles and support the charging needs of local electric vehicle owners.
