Eligibility Information

Eligible Applicants

Eligible applicants include:

  • State or local governments 
  • Transit agencies
  • Metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs)
  • Political subdivisions of a State or local government (such as publicly owned toll or port authorities)
  • Multijurisdictional groups or consortia of research institutions or academic institutions

Partnership with the private sector or public agencies, including multimodal and multijurisdictional entities, research institutions, organizations representing transportation and technology leaders, or other transportation stakeholders, and as discussed in Section D.2 of this NOFO, applicants are required to include a partnership plan in the technical application.

Typically, a consortium is a meaningful arrangement with all members involved in planning the overall direction of the group’s activities and participating in most aspects of the group; the consortium is a long-term relationship intended to last the full life of the grant. Any application submitted by a sole research or academic institution that is not part of a consortium will not be considered for selection.

Note: A multijurisdictional group is any combination of State governments, local governments, metropolitan planning agencies, transit agencies, or other political subdivisions of a State for which each member of the group has signed a written agreement to implement the ATTAIN Program across jurisdictional boundaries and is an eligible entity as described above.

Eligible Uses

Grant recipients may use funds under this program to deploy the following advanced transportation and congestion management technologies:

  • Advanced traveler information systems;
  • Advanced transportation management technologies;
  • Advanced transportation technologies to improve emergency evacuation and responses by federal, state, and local authorities;
  • Infrastructure maintenance, monitoring, and condition assessment;
  • Advanced public transportation systems;
  • Transportation system performance data collection, analysis, and dissemination systems;
  • Advanced safety systems, including V2V and V2I communications, technologies associated with automated vehicles, and other collision avoidance technologies, including systems using cellular technology;
  • Integration of intelligent transportation systems with the smart grid and other energy distribution and charging systems;
  • Integrated corridor management systems;
  • Advanced parking reservation or variable pricing systems or systems to assist trucks in locating available truck parking;
  • Electronic pricing, toll collection, and payment systems;
  • Technology that enhances high-occupancy-vehicle toll lanes, cordon pricing, or congestion pricing;
  • Integration of transportation service payment systems;
  • Advanced mobility access and on-demand transportation service technologies, such as dynamic ridesharing and information systems to support human services for elderly and disabled individuals;
  • Retrofitting dedicated short-range communications (DSRC) technology deployed as part of an existing pilot program to cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) technology, subject to the condition that the retrofitted technology operates only within the existing spectrum allocations for connected vehicle systems; or
  • Advanced transportation technologies, in accordance with the research areas described in section 6503 of Title 491.
