GTIB Grant Program Guidelines

Grant Program Guidelines

Grant Parameters

No grant may receive more than 25% of available grant funds, please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions section of the main GTIB website for available funding.  There is currently no minimum threshold for grant requests. There is a cap on grant requests above $2 million. For these grant requests, the maximum grant that can be applied for is 33 percent of the total project value. For grant requests under $2 million, there is no cap, however, higher match amounts (excluding state funds) will improve grant application competitiveness.

Grant Program Fees

The Application Fee is $250. A check must be made payable to the State Road & Tollway Authority (SRTA) and be received by the GTIB at the appropriate address as provided in the application within 2 weeks of submitting the application.

Application Review and Selection

If the Application is complete and all eligibility requirements are met, the Application will be evaluated by staff for competitiveness and submitted to the GTIB Advisory Committee for consideration. After Advisory Committee review a recommendation will be made to the SRTA Board, who will approve or deny the application. If the project is not approved for award, staff will notify the applicant. If the Application is approved, staff will advise the applicant and coordinate documents required for awarding funds.

Project Modifications and Adjustments

If project costs change or are otherwise modified between the time that an Application is filed and awards are announced the Applicant should inform staff in writing, as soon as possible. In such an event the Applicant may be required file a supplemental Application.
