The Federal Highway Administration is now seeking grant proposals for National Scenic Byways Program funding consideration for FY 2009. SAFETEA-LU authorized up to $43.5 million for this fiscal year. FHWA has decided to continue to be more strategic in its grant awards process by targeting its resources toward projects that provide the greatest benefits. FHWA invites the application of large-scale, high-cost projects that provide strategic benefits to the byway and the byway traveler. Applications are due to FHWA division offices by March 13, 2009.
