The National Institute for Transportation and Communities (NITC) invites proposals for research, education, and technology transfer transportation projects that support innovations in: livability, incorporating safety and environmental sustainability
Please read the RFP carefully as it contains three different grant opportunities:
- General RFP. Up to $1,000,000 will be awarded to research, education and technology transfer projects that support NITC’s theme. Another General RFP will be released early 2014.
- Small starts. Up to $60,000 will be awarded to small research development endeavors.
- Pooled-fund. Up to $180,000 will be awarded to projects specifically responding to local agency pooled-fund research statements. A separate RFP will be released this Fall.
Successful research proposals will combine advanced research with applied projects that fit the NITC theme, linking to articulated USDOT priorities specifically livability, environmental sustainability and safety. Successful education proposals will enhance, develop, or promote undergraduate or graduate transportation education, with sustained outcomes or support continued education for practitioners. Technology transfer proposals should support the application of transportation research to practice, including dissemination of research results, continuing education, and training.
