The Kansas Department of Transportation is now accepting applications for the spring 2024 round of the agency's Cost Share Program.

Nearly $140 million has been given to Kansas communities since the Cost Share Program began in 2019.

The Cost Share Program provides financial assistance to local entities for construction projects that improve safety, leverage state funds to increase total transportation investment and help both rural and urban areas of the state improve the transportation system. This is the tenth round of projects to receive funding.

"Cost Share funding benefits communities of all sizes by helping needed transportation projects become reality," said Michelle Needham, KDOT Economic Development Programs Manager. "This program provides urban and rural areas with numerous ways to improve transportation, generate economic growth and create job opportunities."

An informational webinar on the program will take place on Tuesday, February 20 at 10 AM. The application process will be discussed and attendees can ask questions. To register for the webinar, CLICK HERE.

All transportation projects are eligible, including roadway (on and off the state system), rail, airport, bicycle/pedestrian and public transit. Candidate projects should include investments that provide transportation benefits and are not eligible for other KDOT programs. This round of grant funding has an overall budget of $9 million, with a maximum awarded amount of $1 million per project.

The deadline for applications is March 21. Information and the application link are on KDOT's website. Applications must be completed online and a sample PDF application will be available for preview.
