County Transportation Infrastructure Fund Grant Program

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has received applications from counties for a grant under the County Transportation Infrastructure Fund Grant Program (Program), which was created by the 83rd Legislature in Senate Bill 1747, and is being administered by TxDOT. TxDOT finalized application review and has calculated eligible grant awards for all eligible applicant counties.

TxDOT has sent applicable counties a Notice of Eligible Grant Award letter by certified mail. Pursuant to the 43 TAC §15.191, before receiving a grant award from the fund and any allowable reimbursements from the eligible grant amount, the county must enter into an agreement with TxDOT. The original signed agreement must be returned to the county’s TxDOT district contact.

The County Transportation Infrastructure Program must be performed in accordance with all applicable laws, rules and regulations. The Post-Award Agreement and Implementation Procedures were developed to assist each county and TxDOT in achieving full compliance while keeping project development and administration activities at reasonable levels of effort. It is each party’s responsibility to fulfill its respective obligations under the applicable laws, rules and regulations. Many of the requirements are contained in the Texas Uniform Grant Management Standards, the Texas Transportation Code and the Texas Administrative Code.
