Prospective grantees have until February 1, 2023, to submit applications for FY 2024 funding
The Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) will begin accepting applications for rail, transit, and commuter assistance grants for the 2024 Fiscal Year at 12:01 A.M. Thursday, December 1, 2022. The annual grant application period runs through February 1, 2023.
Rail, transit, and commuter assistance funds are available through multiple state and federal sources to support public transit service, human service transportation, planning, transportation demand management, and rail programs in Virginia. Current Application Guidance for all DRPT administered grants, including eligible project categories, is available online at olga.drpt.virginia.gov. Please note that all applications must ALSO be submitted online.
Once the application period closes, DRPT will evaluate all submissions and submit recommended project funding to the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) for the Draft FY24 Six-Year Improvement Program (SYIP). A series of statewide public hearings will then be held before the CTB considers the final adoption of the FY24 SYIP next June.
