DOT Accepting Applications for University Transportation Centers Program

DOT Secretary Anthony Foxx has announced the availability of up to $377.5 million over five years for the University Transportation Centers (UTC) Program, including awards of up to $72.5 million for Fiscal Year 2016.

The UTC program supports applied and academic research on national transportation priorities (including safety) at 35 competitively-selected colleges and university grantees across the nation, currently encompassing more than 100 institutions of higher education. This year, for the first time, two-year institutions of higher education are eligible to partner in the UTC consortia.

The work of UTCs will align with the department’s vision to move the U.S. “Beyond Traffic” and toward a 21st-­century transportation system that moves people and goods more efficiently.

The two-step application process requires applicants to submit a letter of intent by April 1, with the completed applications due no later than May 13. Awards will be made no later than Dec. 4, when FY16 funds are awarded. Subsequent awards will be made annually.
