Last week, the Regional Transportation Council voted unanimously to submit three North Texas projects to the U.S. Department of Transportation for infrastructure grants totaling $60.2 million.

The projects were submitted to the Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity (RAISE) grant fund, which was introduced in April by the federal department of transportation. It replaces a program with similar criteria, but adds environmental and racial infrastructure considerations.

The council requesting the funds is part of the North Central Texas Council of Governments, which is made up of officials from counties and cities across north and central Texas. The selected projects “effectively deal with environmental justice and climate change considerations,” program manager Jeffrey Neal said during the council’s June 10 meeting, and align with the new criteria.

Infrastructure grant programs such as RAISE are competitive, with 680 projects funded out of over 9,700 applications in 2020. The maximum grant award per project is $25 million, and no more than $100 million can be awarded to a single state.
