The Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act) established the Nationally Significant Freight and Highway Projects (NSFHP) program to provide Federal financial assistance to projects of national or regional significance and authorized the program at $ 4. 5 billion for fiscal years (FY)
2016 through 2020, including $850 million for FY 2017 to be awarded by the Secretary of Transportation.
The Department will also refer to NSFHP grants as Fostering Advancements in Shipping and Transportation for the Long-term Achievement of National Efficiencies (FASTLANE) grants.
This purpose of this opportunity is to solicit applications for FY 2017 grants for the FASTLANE program.
