AID Demonstration Program
The AID Demonstration program provides funding as an incentive for eligible entities to accelerate the implementation and adoption of innovation in highway transportation. The AID Demonstration program is one initiative under the multi-faceted Technology and Innovation Deployment Program (TIDP) approach providing funding and other resources to offset the risk of trying an innovation. The new Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) was published on September 1, 2016, continuing the AID Demonstration program under the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act (Pub. L. No. 114-94). New applications for the AID Demonstration program are now being accepted through Grants.gov (search for Opportunity Number FHWA-2016-21063).
AID Demonstration program applications submitted after February 1, 2016 under the MAP-21 Notice of Funding Availability may be submitted in accordance with the criteria established in the new NOFO. Information on AID Demonstration projects that were funded under MAP-21 can be found at www.fhwa.dot.gov/innovation/grants/projects.
