U.S. Department of Transportation’s Maritime Administration (MARAD) has announced a $662 million funding opportunity for MARAD’s Port Infrastructure Development Program (PIDP) to support projects that improve the safety, efficiency, or reliability of the movement of goods through ports and intermodal connections to ports. MARAD will also consider how projects address climate change and sustainability, equity, and workforce development objectives.
In the coming weeks, the Federal Highway Administration will open FY 2022-20223 grant applications for the Reduction of Truck Emissions at Port Facilities program, which will make $160 million available to test, evaluate, and deploy projects that reduce port-related emissions from idling trucks, including through the advancement of port electrification and improvements in efficiency.
A series of webinars that describe requirements and the application process will be announced, while a list of frequently asked questions are available here.
The funding opportunity is available on Grants.gov and the deadline for applications is 11:59 PM Eastern Time on April 28, 2023. For additional questions, email PIDPGrants@dot.gov.
