State-Based Innovation Deployment - The STIC Network helps to establish a group of representatives from various levels of the highway community in each State to comprehensively and strategically consider all sources of innovation. Learn about STIC.

STIC Incentive Allocations

The STIC Incentive Program provides resources to the STICs to create innovations standard practice within their States. Limited funds are provided to support or offset the costs of standardizing innovative practices in a State transportation agency or any other public sector STIC stakeholder. The following projects were funded in FY 2014.
