Wisconsin DOT Announces Criteria for $75M Local Government Grant Program

MADISON, WI — The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is providing funding through a one-time grant program designed to address critical transportation needs throughout Wisconsin. The $75-million Multimodal Local Supplement (MLS) grant program is available to local and tribal governments.

“The MLS program gives counties, towns, villages and cities the opportunity to apply to fund multimodal projects that will provide significant economic impacts for their community,” Governor Tony Evers said.

The project selection process will include local government committees. The selection will be competitive and involve stakeholder input and review. Projects will rate higher if they demonstrate economic impact, provide greater connectivity or are shown to have greater cost-effectiveness than other options.

Program Highlights

  • MLS application materials are available on the WisDOT website.
  • The program is focused on local project delivery. Local units of government may apply for design and construction, or construction only, projects.
  • Grants are available for new projects throughout the state.
  • Local and tribal governments are eligible for the funding.
  • The minimum project cost for counties, cities and villages is $250,000.
  • The minimum project cost for towns is $50,000.
  • The program will reimburse local governments up to 90 percent of total eligible costs; the local sponsor provides the balance.
  • A six-year project completion will be required for approved projects.
  • The deadline for applications is 5 p.m., Friday, December 6, 2019.
