Accelerated Innovation Deployment (AID) Demonstration Funding Opportunity Available for FY2024

AID Demonstration Program is active again! The Accelerated Innovation Deployment (AID) Demonstration provides incentive funds to eligible entities to accelerate the implementation and adoption of innovation in highway transportation. FHWA has awarded 127 AID Demonstration grants at more than $95.7 million dollars since its launch in 2014. These funds can be used in any phase of a highway transportation project between project planning and project delivery, including planning, finance, operation, structures, materials, pavements, environment, and construction.

The 2023-2026 AID Demonstration Program will make available up to $10 million in grants in Fiscal Year (FY) 2023 and $12.5 million in FYs 2024 through 2026. One change in the new Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO 693JJ324NF-AIDDP) for AID Demo is the requirement for potential applications to submit Notices of Intent. While the deadline has passed for the FY 2023 solicitation period, the FY 2024 solicitation period will open on on February 27, 2024, with the NOI deadline of April 16, 2024, and closing date of May 28, 2024.

The FHWA EDC-7 Team has put together this list of suggested project ideas that can help deploy the EDC innovations either via STIC Incentive Fund Grant projects or AID Demonstration applications.
