DOT Bipartisan Infrastructure Law: Mega Grants for National Development - Due 05/06/24

Opportunity Title:

Mega Grants



Department of Transportation (DOT), Office of the Under Secretary for Policy


Opportunity Number:




The Department is combining three major discretionary grant programs and two fiscal years of funding into one Multimodal Projects Discretionary Grant (MPDG) opportunity to reduce the burden for state and local applicants and increase the pipeline of “shovel-worthy” projects that are now possible because of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

The National Infrastructure Project Assistance (Mega) program was created in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to fund major projects that are too large or complex for traditional funding programs. It is a highly competitive program. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law provides $5 billion for Mega over 5 years, of which approximately $1.7 billion remains and will be made available through this NOFO.

Applications will be evaluated on six outcome criteria, economic analysis, project readiness, and statutory requirements. The six outcome criteria are:

  • Safety

  • State of good repair

  • Economic impacts, freight movement, and job creation

  • Climate change, resilience, and the environment

  • Equity, multimodal options, and quality of life

  • Innovation areas: technology, project delivery and financing.



  • State or group of states

  • Metropolitan or regional transportation planning organization

  • Unit of local government

  • Political subdivision of a State

  • Port authority

  • Tribal government or consortium of Tribal governments

  • Federal land management agency
