The FAA Research Grants Program encourages and supports innovative, advanced research of potential benefit to the long-term growth of civil aviation and Commercial Space Transportation. The pursuit of basic and applied research in scientific and engineering disciplines that have the potential to further knowledge and understanding on a broad front of emerging technologies is crucial to the realization of this goal. The intent is to encourage applied research and development to enhance technology assimilation, transfer, and
development in the FAA. The Research Grants Program does not require the immediate application to Research, Engineering, and Development (R,E&D) programs, although this may occur in some cases. The agency encourages the submission of proposals that embrace the entire spectrum of physical, chemical, biological, medical, psychological, mathematical, and engineering sciences.

The objective of this funding opportunity announcement is to build upon work previously done in this area by promoting continued and expanded engagement in national peer-to-peer networks, furthering the design and implementation of small grants demonstration programs at the community level, strengthening and refining evaluation and continuous improvement processes, and expanding dissemination activities. The goal of this 5 year project is to build upon proven models and approaches that can be used by states and communities across the country to involve people with disabilities and older adults in the design and implementation of coordinated transportation systems in ways that successfully make those systems responsive to the needs of these populations.

The purpose of this Program Announcement is to identify opportunities to reduce automobile trips, traffic congestion, and their associated air pollutant emissions by shifting attendees of major event center functions out of their personal automobile and onto public transportation. The goal is to align major event centers with transit providers to create a transportation option for event attendees as an alternative to their personal automobile. A shift from automobile to transit benefits not only those who take advantage of the service, but also the communities where the event center is located. The air pollution reduction benefits achieved through automobile trip reduction and congestion relief benefit all residents of the South Coast AQMD.

The South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) is pleased to announce the availability of funds from the Carl Moyer Memorial Air Quality Standards Attainment Program (hereafter “CMP”). Although air pollution regulations have significantly reduced emissions and improved air quality in California, many areas continue to experience unhealthy air. The CMP has been very successful over the past 18 years in incentivizing equipment owners to take early action and obtain additional emission reductions by the deployment of cleaner-than-required engines, vehicles and equipment. This year marks the 19th year of implementation of the CMP by the SCAQMD. This Program Announcement (PA) will identify the project types and eligibility criteria to qualify for the Year 19 CMP. In the preparation of this PA, the words “Applicant,” “Contractor,” and “Consultant” are used interchangeably.
The AID Demonstration program provides funding as an incentive for eligible entities to accelerate the implementation and adoption of innovation in highway transportation.  The AID Demonstration program is one initiative under the multi-faceted Technology and Innovation Deployment Program (TIDP) approach providing funding and other resources to offset the risk of trying an innovation. The new Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) was published on September 1, 2016, continuing the AID Demonstration program under the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act. Applications for the AID Demonstration program are being accepted under Opportunity Number FHWA-2016-21063 through
The discretionary Capital Investment Grant (CIG) program provides funding for fixed guide-way investments such as new and expanded rapid rail, commuter rail, light rail, streetcars, bus rapid transit, and ferries, as well as corridor-based bus rapid transit investments that emulate the features of rail. There are four categories of eligible projects under the CIG program: New Starts, Small Starts, Core Capacity, and Programs of Interrelated Projects.
This program (49 U.S.C. 5310) provides formula funding to states for the purpose of assisting private nonprofit groups in meeting the transportation needs of older adults and people with disabilities when the transportation service provided is unavailable, insufficient, or inappropriate to meeting these needs. Funds are apportioned based on each state’s share of the population for these two groups. Formula funds are apportioned to direct recipients; for rural and small urban areas, this is the state Department of Transportation, while in large urban areas, a designated recipient is chosen by the governor.
This Grant will expire on June 29, 2018
This funding opportunity provides incentives for the construction or expansion of natural gas refueling stations and for an additional funding incentive for refueling stations that utilize natural gas produced from renewable sources.
