Description: The Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act, P.L. 114-94, December 4, 2015) authorizes the Secretary of Transportation to make grants to eligible non-profit institutions of higher education to establish and operate University Transportation Centers (UTCs). Non-profit institutions of higher education may include qualifying two-year institutions (20 U.S.C. § 1001(a)). Through this Notice of Funding Opportunity, the USDOT seeks competitive grant applications for two new National UTCs: one to focus on "Congestion Relief" (Reducing Congestion) and the other on "Improving the Durability and Extending the Life of Transportation Infrastructure." Funding for these two National Centers is provided through the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018; Division L, Title I, Research and Technology (P.L. 115-141, March 23, 2018).
