Funding available for local transportation infrastructure projects that support economic development

Cities, counties and tribes have an opportunity to apply for matching fund grants for local transportation infrastructure projects.

According to a release from MnDOT, the projects are applicable to Greater Minnesota that are designed to support economic development.

Two million dollars are available for construction projects on the state highway system that will happen between 2023 and 2024.

MnDOT’s Transportation Economic Development, or TED, program is a competitive grant process that helps meet the state’s economic development and transportation needs by creating and preserving well-paying jobs and leveraging private and local investment in transportation infrastructure.

Since 2011, the TED program has provided $130 million to 55 local projects.

Applications are due by Friday, Sept. 2, with programs selected and announced this fall.  Expressions of interest should be submitted by July 1.
