Program Information & Resources

County Incentive Grant Program (CIGP)
The County Incentive Grant Program (CIGP) was created for the purpose of providing grants to counties, to improve a transportation facility including transit which is located on the State Highway System (SHS) or which relieves traffic congestion on the SHS.

Federal Discretionary Grants
Local agencies may also be awarded federal funding through the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) but the type of work or grant funding does not conform to the Department's standard federal-aid delivery mechanism of LAP. Certification is not applicable for subrecipient's of these grant funds. Conditions where LAP Certification may not be applicable are provided in Chapter 2 of the Local Programs Manual.
