TA Program Structure, Policies, and Procedures
- TA program structure: The program is run through a state-level TE Office. The state uses a competitive selection process, and funds are distributed directly by the state TE Office. (Please note that this is a reimbursement program, not a grant program. Project sponsors pay 100 percent of all costs up-front and are reimbursed for allowable costs.)
- Who is eligible to apply: Any interested organization, including: Municipality, State agency or NGO.
- Application information: The application form is available online. The TE Office offers application training to individual applicants on request.
- Application timeline: The project selection cycle typically occurs every 2-3 years. The next call for proposals is to be determined.
- Application components: Project narrative and budget.
- Selection criteria: The state considers proposals for all 12 TE categories. Selection criteria include: public demand for the project; relationship of the project to the intermodal transportation system; and, significance of the project.
- Application tips: The TE program funds project design, engineering and construction.
- Is there an advisory committee?: Yes. The committee serves in an advisory capacity to the RIDOT Director of Transportation.
- Advisory committee members: The committee members are appointed by the RIDOT Director.
- Project award minimum: $100,000
- Project award maximum: None
- Typical local match: 20%
- Matching policies: The state does accept in-kind match. The TE Office encourages the use of community resources, such as municipal staff time, labor, and materials.
- Once your project is funded: The TE Office provides guidance on implementation for the project sponsors. The TE Office offers training sessions on implementation and is in the process of developing a manual covering implementation requirements for use by local public agencies.
