The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law established the PROTECT Discretionary Grant Program to help make surface transportation more resilient to natural hazards, including climate change, sea level rise, flooding, extreme weather events, and other natural disasters through support of planning activities, resilience improvements, community resilience and evacuation routes, and at-risk costal infrastructure. This NOFO offers up to $848 million from Fiscal Years 2022 and 2023.
FHWA will be hosting two external webinars on the NOFO:
