What you need for How to apply - Shared Streets and Spaces Grant Program

Municipalities and transit authorities may submit only two applications per funding round and may be awarded only one grant. As such, it is important that municipal departments communicate with each other and only submit their priority applications. Applicants can also submit packages of identical improvements, such as multiple crosswalks in different locations or multiple bus shelters. Equipment Only applications do not count against application or award limits. Applicants may not combine project types in order to achieve a higher maximum funding request.

Municipalities may also work together to propose cross-municipality projects, provided one municipality acts as the lead applicant. School districts may not apply directly for funding; applications must be submitted by municipal staff or officials.

The application is a fillable online form that collects information about the applicant and the proposed project. The applicant must demonstrate how the project’s goals relate to the program goals and detail the project’s implementation plan and timeline. The applicant must submit a project budget using the standard MassDOT template and any other supplemental information necessary to review the application. Ensure your project is eligible by reviewing Project Eligibility.

It is also required at the time of application for a municipality to understand ownership over the proposed infrastructure and detail whether any right of way acquisitions, easements, or use licenses are required. Applicants are also required to demonstrate that appropriate public notification related to the proposed project has been given.
