How to Apply to State Aid Programs

All applications are to be submitted online through SAGE (System for Administering Grants Electronically). An applicant can submit up to two (2) applications for each fiscal year. Applications are evaluated in the field and scored based on the existing conditions and information provided in the applications as well as the applicant’s past performance in managing grants. Upon review of all applications and subsequent rankings, a list of recommended projects is forwarded to the Commissioner of Transportation for consideration and approval. Once approved by the commissioner, all municipalities and counties are notified in writing of the disposition of their application.
