The table on this page includes traditional Federal funding sources that can be used for WVC mitigation activities such as WVC reduction planning, construction projects, and/or research.
|Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP)
||This program is for high-risk rural areas. To be eligible for these funds, WVC mitigation projects need to be part of a State's Strategic Highway Safety Plan.
||Bridge projects can provide an opportunity to funnel wildlife under bridges. This solution can be achieved with limited wildlife exclusion fencing and a limited extension to the length of a bridge. By directing wildlife under bridges, the hazard from the road is no longer an issue.
|Interstate Maintenance, Surface Transportation, National Highway Programs
||Incorporate WVC mitigations into reconstruction and maintenance projects that are funded by these programs.
|Planning, Environment, and Realty (HEP) Programs
||Other Federal transportation resources for WVC mitigation can be found in DOT agencies and programs.
|Public Lands Highways Discretionary Program
||This program funds projects on an annual basis in 11 western States that contain at least 3 percent of the total public land in the United States.
|Surface Transportation Environment and Planning Cooperative Research Program (STEP)
||STEP is the sole source of funds for all FHWA research on planning and environmental issues.
|Technology Deployment Program
||FHWA administers this program, which includes the Innovative Bridge Research and Deployment (IBRD) program. The IBRD program is intended to promote, demonstrate, evaluate, and document innovative designs, materials, and construction methods for bridges and other highway structures.
|Transportation Enhancement Program (TEP)
||TEP funds transportation-related projects that are designed to strengthen the cultural, aesthetic, and environmental aspects of the U.S. intermodal transportation system, thus offering communities non-traditional transportation choices.
|Federal Lands Highway Program (FLHP)
||The primary purpose of this program is to provide funding for a coordinated program that concentrates on public roads that are located on Federal lands and are not the responsibility of State or local government. The FLHP roads are primarily used for recreational travel and tourism, protect and enhance natural resources, sustained economic development in rural areas, and necessary transportation access for Native Americans.
|Coordinated Federal Lands Highway Technology Implementation Program (CTIP)
||This is a cooperative technology deployment and sharing program between the FHWA Office of Federal Lands Highway and Federal land management agencies. It provides a forum for identifying, studying, documenting, and transferring new technology to the transportation community. Many new innovative technologies, such as measures allowing fish to pass through culverts, have been funded through the CTIP program. CTIP funds are normally used for technology projects related to transportation networks on Federal public lands. Research projects are not eligible under this program.
|Federal Transit Administration (FTA)
||The FTA has grant programs to fund transit-related planning and other projects.
|State and Community Highway Safety Program
||The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration administers this program and provides grants to States, federally recognized Tribes, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, Northern Marianas, and the Virgin Islands.
