The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) will be accepting applications for the Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program (ITEP) beginning in October 2nd, 2019 to December 6th, 2019. The ITEP provides funding for community-based projects that expand travel options and enhance the transportation experience by improving the cultural, historic, aesthetic, and environmental aspects of our transportation infrastructure. Awards are anticipated to be announced in May 2020 with a Sunset Clause to have all funds federally authorized by September 30, 2023.
New for the 2020 ITEP Cycle:
The ITEP will no longer fund Street Lighting or Phase I Engineering. Potential Grantees may apply during the 2020 cycle provided a Project Development Report has been submitted to IDOT for review and approval and the submittal date is included and can be verified in the application.
Call for Projects is planned to be released by MCCOM January 2020. STP-L is one of the most flexible funding sources for a variety of transportation infrastructure & non infrastructure projects. Click here to learn more about this program.
