CTDOT Announces $18 Million in State Local Bridge Program Grant Funding Available to Municipalities - Communities Encouraged to Apply Before November 30, 2020
The Connecticut Department of Transportation today announced that the Department is now accepting Fiscal Year 2021 State grant applications from Connecticut cities and towns for the State Local Bridge Program (SLBP). This grant program provides funding to Connecticut towns and cities for the removal, replacement, reconstruction or rehabilitation of local bridges.
There are about 4,200 bridges and culverts on locally-owned, municipally controlled roadways across the state. The Connecticut General Assembly created the SLBP in 1984 to provide state grant funding to assist municipalities in offsetting the costs for maintaining these critically important local structures.
There is $18 million available for SLBP grant awards. The application period is now open and the Department will be accepting applications through November, 30, 2020.
Interested towns and cities should visit the CTDOT’s SLBP website at www.ct.gov/dot/localbridge for more information and materials to apply for funding.
