Illinois Tomorrow Corridor Planning Grants available

Illinois municipalities and counties can now apply for planning grants to integrate land use, transportation, and infrastructure facility planning in major transportation corridors.

For the third year, municipalities and counties in Illinois' twelve urbanized areas can apply for Illinois Tomorrow Corridor Planning Grants. Funds totalling $3 million will be available to help local governments develop land use and infrastructure plans that promote Illinois Tomorrow's goals: balanced growth that reduces traffic congestion, preserves open space, encourages reinvestment, enhances local quality of life and encourages local government partnerships.

The Corridor Planning Grants are a five-year, $15 million state initiative to assist municipalities and counties in planning for balanced growth along transportation corridors. Local Metropolitan Planning Organizations will review the grant proposals before forwarding them to IDOT. Priority will be given to projects that demonstrate effective integration of land use plans, development decisions and infrastructure investments.

For more information and an application, please visit IDOT's Corridor Planning site or call 217-782-2863.
