Please Note: Because the National Scenic Byways Program is no longer funded, FHWA is no longer soliciting grant applications. Without funding for the Program, FHWA will not be moving forward with another round of designations of America's Byways® at this time.
NSBP grants are available not only for projects on nationally designated byways, but also to support statewide byway planning efforts and State-designated byways. Figure 1 shows the distribution of grant funding for the 1999 through 2006 funding cycles. Over this eight-year period, nearly $200 million in grants were distributed, with 47 percent going to designated America's Byways®, 41 percent to other State, Tribal or Federal land byways; and 11 percent to statewide byway programs.
