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). Applications for the AID Demonstration program are being accepted under Opportunity Number FHWA-2016-21063 through Grants.gov.


Federal Highway Administration Awards $8.4 Million to Nine States for Innovative Highway Projects
More than $8.4 million in grants from the Accelerated Innovation Deployment (AID) Demonstration program will fund innovative projects in Arizona, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Oklahoma, and Utah.
