Grant Description
The purpose of this second modification is to extend the due date for proposal submission to March 31, 2006. No other changes have been made to the announcement. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has issued the FY 2006 solicitation for proposals under the National Scenic Byways Program. Under this program, the Secretary of Transportation may make grants to States or Indian tribes to implement projects on roads designated as National Scenic Byways or All-American Roads, State scenic byways, or Indian tribe scenic byways. The Secretary may also make grants to States or Indian Tribes to plan, design, and develop a scenic byway program. Eligible projects must be from one of the eight eligible activities: State Programs, Corridor Management Plans, Safety Improvements, Byway Facilities, Access to Recreation, Resource Protection, Interpretive Information, or Marketing. Priority is given to projects that demonstrate the relationship of the project to the byway, benefit the byway traveler, and leverage funds from multiple funding sources. The Federal share of the byway project grant is generally 80 percent. The Scenic Byway Grants Guidance and Information document and the Online Grant Application are available at http://www.bywaysonline.org/grants/.
