LANSING, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), in partnership with the Michigan Office of Future Mobility and Electrification (OFME), is announcing the Michigan Shared Streets and Spaces Grant Program (SSSG) and accepting applications to support quick-build projects led by incorporated cities and transit agencies that improve user safety, enhance mobility and support local placemaking efforts. The program's goal is to make communities more walkable, bikeable, and transit- and micromobility-friendly.

There will be time dedicated for questions and answers. The webinars will be held via Zoom on the following days and times. Register via the provided links:

    "MDOT officials enthusiastically support this program. The funds will help communities and transit agencies support healthy, affordable and sustainable mobility for all," State Transportation Director Bradley C. Wieferich said.

"Today's announcement further builds on Michigan's goal of ensuring that its communities come first in all facets of a city's master transit plan," said Justine Johnson, chief mobility officer for the State of Michigan. "As we continue our efforts toward a more sustainable mobility future, we must work with local municipalities and transit authorities to ensure they are prepared to implement safety measures as well as affordable access to reliable micromobility infrastructure, and the Michigan SSSG Program will help us do just that."

Signed into law in 2023 as part of MDOT's Fiscal Year 2024 budget, this one-time appropriation of $3.5 million will be able to issue up to $200,000 per grant and has no matching funds requirement.

Applications are due by June 7, 2024. Project selections will be made within approximately 90 days of the application deadline. A contract is required before any reimbursable costs can be incurred.
