The new PROTECT program provides discretionary grants for projects that support the continued operation or rapid recovery of crucial local, regional, or national surface transportation facilities.
The program has four categories of funding. One category is for Planning Grants. The other three categories, known collectively as Resilience Grants, are Resilience Improvement Grants, Community Resilience and Evacuation Route Grants, and At-Risk Coastal Infrastructure Grants.
Grants from the PROTECT program are open to states, metropolitan planning organizations, local governments, and multi-state or multijurisdictional groups of entities, among other eligible entities.
In Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) will consider providing support for regionally supported grant proposals. PennDOT support may include providing data and subject matter expertise as available. The deadline for requesting PennDOT support is August 4. 2023.
