DOT Reconnecting Communities Pilot (RCP) Program. Due 9/28/2023.
Reconnecting Communities Pilot (RCP) Program
The Department is combining two major discretionary grant programs, the Reconnecting Communities Pilot (RCP) and Neighborhood Access and Equity (NAE) programs, into one Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO). Together, this combined program is known as the Reconnecting Communities and Neighborhoods (RCN) Program.
The RCP Program aims to advance and support reconnection of communities divided by transportation infrastructure – with a priority on helping disadvantaged communities improve access to daily needs (jobs, schools, healthcare, grocery stores, and recreation). Funds for the fiscal year (FY) 2023 RCP grant program are to be awarded on a competitive basis to support planning and capital construction activities that aim to restore community connectivity through the removal, retrofit, mitigation or replacement of highways, roadways, or other infrastructure facilities that create barriers to mobility, access or economic development.
Eligible Applicants for the RCP program are the following: RCP Community Planning Grants: 1) A State; 2) A unit of local government; 3) A Tribal government; 4) A Metropolitan Planning Organization; or 5) A non-profit organization RCP Capital Construction Grants: 1) Owner(s) of the eligible facility proposed in the project for which all necessary feasibility studies and other planning activities have been completed; or 2) a partnership between a facility owner (#1 above) and any eligible RCP Community Planning Grant applicant. See the NOFO for additional details on eligibility.
