National Scenic Byways Program Discretionary Grants: The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has issued the FY 2007 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 byways program. Eligible projects must be from one of the following eight eligible activities: State or Tribal Programs, Corridor Management Plans, Safety Improvements, Byways 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 80 percent. The National Scenic Byways Grants Guidance and Information are available at: http://www.bywaysonline.org/grants/. Please contact your State coordinator to discuss your application before preparing an application.
