Grant Amount: $ 60,000,000.00
Description:
"The Nationally Significant Federal Lands and Tribal Projects Program (NSFLTP) of The Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act) (Pub. L. 114-94, section 1123), 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 million. Construction projects with an estimated cost equal to and exceeding $50 million receive priority consideration in the selection process. Section 1123 of the FAST Act requires that projects have at least 10% of costs matched by funds not provided under any USDOT programs authorized under titles 23 or 49 of the U.S. Code, unless authorized under any other provision of law. FHWA shall consider criteria established under section 1123 of the FAST Act in rating all applications for funding under the Program in addition to the Secretary’s objectives."
