The New York State Department of Transportation and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority are jointly offering $3 million in grant funding for what they call “innovative proposals” to improve the efficiency of New York’s transportation system while reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.

NYSERDA and NYSDOT said in a statement on April 17 that they will award grants based on a two-step process. First, applicants must submit “concept papers” through October 30 this year that center on “innovative strategies” in one of the following areas:

  • Efficient mobility solutions: Projects to reduce transportation congestion and shift travel demand to more energy-efficient modes, such as public transportation, greater bicycle availability, and overall improvements in mobility for people and commercial goods.
  • Efficient infrastructure, operations, and systems planning: Projects to increase transportation efficiency by optimizing operations, expanding transportation options, or employing technology-driven approaches that can improve and be integrated into larger infrastructure improvement initiatives.

Following the submission deadline, NYSERDA and NYSDOT said they will undertake a competitive process to identify applicants with the best concept papers who will then be invited to submit proposals. Proposals will then be reviewed and selected for funding, they added.
