AID Demonstration Program Status

At this time, the Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for AID Demonstration issued on February 19, 2014 is closed and FHWA is not accepting applications for the program.  The FHWA will be continuing the AID Demonstration program under the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act (Pub. L. No. 114-94).  A new Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is being prepared and information will be posted here when applications for the AID Demonstration program will again be accepted through Grants.gov.

The AID Demonstration provides funding as an incentive for eligible entities to accelerate the implementation and adoption of innovation in highway transportation.  The AID program is one aspect of the multi-faceted Technology and Innovation Deployment Program (TIDP) approach providing funding and other resources to offset the risk of trying an innovation.
