Local jurisdictions and tribal governments are eligible to apply. Applications are available at this Idaho Transportation Department webpage.

Those applying in 2018 should be prepared to begin construction in May 2019. Project construction must be completed within two years. Applications are evaluated through ITD, the Local Highway Technical Assistance Council and the Idaho Division of the Federal Highway Administration.
