DOT Advanced Transportation Technologies and Innovative Mobility Deployment Program. Due 11/18.
Advanced Transportation Technologies and Innovative Mobility Deployment (ATTIMD) Program
The Advanced Transportation Technologies and Innovative Mobility Deployment Program (ATTIMD), established in Section 503(c)(4) of title 23, United States Code (U.S.C.), also known as the Advanced Transportation Technology and Innovation (ATTAIN) Program, directs FHWA to award grants to eligible entities to deploy, install, and operate advanced transportation technologies to improve safety, mobility, efficiency, system performance, intermodal connectivity, and infrastructure return on investment. FHWA intends for these model technology deployments to help demonstrate how emerging transportation technologies, data, and their applications can be effectively deployed and integrated with existing systems to provide access to essential services and other destinations. This also includes efforts to increase connectivity to employment, education, services, and other opportunities; support workforce development; or contribute to increased mobility, particularly for persons with visible and hidden disabilities and elderly individuals. The Assistance Listing Number for this opportunity is 20.200 – Highway Research and Development.
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) hereby requests applications to result in awards to eligible entities to deploy, install, and operate advanced transportation technologies to improve safety, mobility, efficiency, system performance, intermodal connectivity, and infrastructure return on investment. These model deployments are expected to provide benefits in the form of:
reduced traffic-related fatalities and injuries;
reduced traffic congestion and improved travel time reliability;
reduced transportation-related emissions;
optimized multimodal system performance;
improved access to transportation alternatives, including for underserved populations;
improved integration of payment systems;
public access to real-time integrated traffic, transit, and multimodal transportation information to make informed travel decisions;
cost savings to transportation agencies, businesses, and the traveling public; or
other benefits to transportation users and the general public.
This competitive ATTAIN Program will promote the use of innovative transportation solutions. The deployment of these technologies will provide Congress and FHWA with valuable real-life data and feedback to inform future decision-making.
Eligible Applicants are State or local governments, transit agencies, metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs), or other political subdivisions of a State or local government (such as publicly owned toll or port authorities), or a multijurisdictional group or consortia of research institutions or academic institutions. Partnership with the private sector or public agencies, including multimodal and multijurisdictional entities, research institutions, organizations representing transportation and technology leaders, or other transportation stakeholders, and as discussed in Section D.2 of this NOFO, Applicants are required to include a partnership plan in the technical application.
