TA Program Structure, Policies, and Procedures


  • TA program structure: The program is run through a state-level TE Office. The state uses a non-competitive selection process, and funds are distributed directly by the TE Office.
  • Who is eligible to apply: Municipality, County, State agency, and NGOs.
  • Application information: The application begins with a letter of interest to the Delaware TE coordinator. The requirements for this letter of interest are described on http://deldot.gov/information/community_programs_and_services/te/apply.shtml.
  • Application timeline: Applications are accepted on a yearly basis.
  • Application components: Who: the sponsor of the project, a primary contact, and any co-sponsors contributing expertise or resources. What & Where: a project narrative describing the motivation for the project, what is included in the project, the location, and the community of interest groups or stakeholders who have been involved in the project. How: a justification of why the project is eligible is required, including what TE category the project falls under and how it relates to surface transportation. Also, the source for matching funds must be identified.
  • Selection criteria: The state considers applications for all 12 TE categories. Selection criteria include: anticipated benefits for the community, anticipated number of users/beneficiaries, whether the project is eligible under multiple TE categories, level of public support, linkage to transportation system, maintenance commitment, relationship to other projects, and secured matching funds.
  • Application tips: The TE program funds conceptual planning, project development and design, construction and construction management activities.
  • Is there an advisory committee?: No.
  • Advisory committee members: N/A
  • Project award minimum: None.
  • Project award maximum: $1,000,000
  • Typical local match: 20% for <$1,000,000, 18% for <$900,000, 16% for <$800,000, 14% for <$700,000, 12% for <600,000, 10% for <$500,000, 8% for <$400,000, 6% for <$300,000, 4% for <$200,000, 2% per $100,000
  • Matching policies: The state accepts in-kind match for donated labor and donated right-of-way.
  • Once your project is funded: Written guidelines for project implementation are available. TE projects must be completed within three years unless otherwise approved in writing.
