Dept. of Transportation - Tribal/Rural/Nonprofit Reconnecting Communities Grant Overview Webinar.
Tribal/Rural/Nonprofit Focus: Reconnecting Communities Grant Program Overview
The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) is hosting a webinar on the new DOT Reconnecting Communities Pilot (RCP) discretionary grant program specifically aimed at Tribal, rural, small local governments, and nonprofit applicants.
The RCP discretionary grant program is the first-ever Federal program dedicated to reconnecting communities that were previously cut off from economic opportunities by transportation infrastructure. Funding supports planning grants and capital construction grants, as well as technical assistance, to restore community connectivity through the removal, retrofit, mitigation, or replacement of eligible transportation infrastructure facilities.
This webinar will provide a general overview of the program, examples applicable to rural and Tribal communities, and thoroughly explain eligibility and match requirements. Please see the RCP website for a link to the NOFO, Frequently Asked Questions, and more at: https://www.transportation.gov/reconnecting
DOT will provide American Sign Language interpretation, closed caption transcription, and Spanish-language translation services during this webinar. If you need alternative formats or services due to a disability, please email ReconnectingCommunities@dot.gov.
