The program is intended to provide financial assistance to municipalities, councils of governments, businesses, economic development organizations, public transportation agencies, and ports and rail freight entities to improve transportation assets that enhance communities, pedestrian safety, and transit revitalization.
PennDOT will accept applications for the FY 2024-2025 Multimodal Transportation Fund between 8AM on September 25 and 4PM on November 13. A list of awarded projects for the 2023-2024 funding round and other PennDOT MTF resources are linked below.
