Getting Started

The Principles and Practices section included in the Grant Information for each of the eight categories of eligible project activities provide a framework for thinking about eligibility, rather than a list of what's eligible and what's not, as it is not possible to develop an all inclusive list.

Things to be considered:

Preparing an Application

Projects Benefits and Cost Sharing

A project should benefit the byway traveler's experience, whether it will help manage the intrinsic qualities that support the byway's designation, shape the byway's story, interpret the story for visitors, or improve visitor facilities along the byway.

Selected Improvements or Activities that are not Eligible

Preparing the Proposed Budget
