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.
The Secretary of Transportation determines projects to be funded.
The Secretary's office notifies Congress following the selection of projects for funding.
FHWA headquarters staff notifies FHWA division office byway contacts and posts grant awards on the https://www.fhwa.dot.gov/hep/scenic_byways/ website.
FHWA prepares and distributes an allocation memo upon notification by the division that projects are ready to obligate. The allocation memo includes the necessary Federal accounting codes for posting funds in the Federal Management Information System (FMIS).
