Local Transportation Capital Improvement Program (LOTCIP) Application Solicitation:
UPDATED May 18th
SCCOG is now soliciting transportation projects proposals for funding by the Local Transportation Capital Improvement Program (LOTCIP), through the Connecticut Department of Transportation (CT DOT). The SCCOG region has approximately $8 Million available in funding for this round of LOTCIP projects, and it is anticipated that the program will continue to be funded in future years, with an annual allocation of $5 Million to southeastern Connecticut.
Eligible transportation projects include reconstruction and rehabilitation of roads functionally classified as Urban Collector or higher, bridges meeting the Federal definition in 23 CFR 650.305, and stand-alone sidewalk projects. Projects must have an estimated cost of $300,000 or more. LOTCIP requires municipalities to fund 100% of design costs; the State funds 100% of construction costs.
SCCOG member municipalities are invited to provide one or more LOTCIP pre-applications.
On May 5th, 2020, the SCCOG Executive Committee voted to re-open the previously suspended LOTCIP 2020 grant application process. The new deadline for submission of pre-applications is Friday, June 5th, 4:00 p.m. Municipalities that have already submitted an application do not need to resubmit. Applications may be emailed to Kate Rattan at email@example.com.
Please see the memo below for more details regarding the application process.
