DOT Pollinator-Friendly Practices on Roadsides and Highway Rights-of-Way Program - Due 06/18; Webinar 04/29

Opportunity Title:

Fiscal Year 2023 Pollinator-Friendly Practices on Roadsides and Highway Rights-of-Way Program

 

Funder/Agency:

Department of Transportation (DOT), Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)

 

Opportunity Number:

693JJ324NF00015

 

Description:

The goals of the Roadside Pollinator Program are to fund the implementation, improvement, or further development of the applicants’ Pollinator Friendly Practices Plan (Plan) on routes eligible for Federal-aid. The United States has an estimated 3.9 million miles of roadway and suitable roadsides and rights-of-way represent a significant area that can be transformed into pollinator habitat through the planting of native plants and wildflowers. Roadsides can provide habitat for a diverse community of pollinators, including opportunities to forage for feeding, nesting and breeding. Roadsides extend across a variety of landscapes and can support ecological connectivity and the dispersal of pollinators by linking fragmented habitats. By acting as refugia for pollinators in otherwise inhospitable landscapes, roadside habitat can contribute to the maintenance of healthy ecosystems and provision of ecological services such as crop pollination services.


The Roadside Pollinator Program is a unique program that has some important differences from other FHWA and DOT discretionary grant programs, including the requirement for an applicant to submit a Plan (23 U.S.C. 332(c) and (d)), the requirement for FHWA to fund all satisfactory applications (23 U.S.C. 332(e)(1)), and the requirement for FHWA to base the amount of all awards on the number of PFPs that the applicant has implemented or plans to implement (23 U.S.C. 332(e)(2)(A)). Due to the unique nature of the Roadside Pollinator Program, FHWA is requiring applicants to use an Application Template.


FHWA plans to conduct outreach regarding the Roadside Pollinator Program in the form of a

virtual meeting on April 29, 2024 from 2:30-4:00pm Eastern Standard Time.
