      Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA) Grants

      The Transportation Enhancement Program is similar to that of the
      past. As defined by the Federal Act, the eligible activities include:


      1. Facilities for pedestrians or bicycles

      2. Acquisition of scenic easements and scenic or historic sites

      3. Scenic or historic highway programs

      4. Landscaping and other scenic beautification

      5. Historic preservation

      6. Rehabilitation of historic transportation buildings, structures or
      facilities (including historic railroad facilities and canals)

      7. Preservation of abandoned railway corridors (including conversion
      for use as bicycle or pedestrian trails)

      8. Control and removal of outdoor advertising

      9. Archaeological planning and research

      10. Mitigation of water pollution due to highway runoff

      These activities are exclusive, meaning that only the ten activities
      are eligible. Your project may include other items, however, only
      these specific items are eligible, and only these specific items will
      be considered for funding.

      Other requirements for eligibility are:

      1. The project must have a direct and substantial link to the
      intermodal transportation system.

      2. The project must be above and beyond the normal transportation
      activity.

      3. The project must not be a required mitigation.

      4. The project must be accomplished without an adverse effect on a
      cultural, historical, archeological or environmental resource.

      5. The project must have a public, political sponsor.

          The Enhancements program is adminstered by the Boston Metropolitan Planning
          Organization. Somerville currently has two projects slated for funding with
          enhancments: Somerville Avenue streetscape improvements (FY 2004) and Magoun
          Square (FY To be determined.)

          The process involves being approved for eligibility by a regional committee,
          and then getting the project listed on the regional 'Transportation
          Improvement Program', which is the harder part.

          The first step is to talk to representatives at the Metropolitan Area
          Planning Council (Barbara Lucas is the transportation head there).

                ...and has anybody had any experince with the EOTC grants?





                The Executive Office of Transportation and Construction administers
                a host of highly effective and diverse grant programs.

                Several of the Federal Transit Administration grants were developed
                to enhance the quality of transportation and transit related services
                for eligible recipients. Such services include, but are not limited
                to; enhancing transit services to the elderly, disabled and families
                transitioning from public assistance; improving access for people in
                non-urbanized areas; and fostering development of inner-city bus
                transportation services.

                The Executive Office of Transportation and Construction also
                administers other grants designed to assist municipalities with
                infrastructure improvements that in turn foster an environment
                conducive to economic growth. The PWED and STRAP grants enable cities
                and towns to undertake general infrastructure projects, such as the
                improvements of roads, bridges and the revitalization of commercial
                and industrial facilities. The intermodal grants, somewhat more
                limited in scope, restrict municipalities to improving infrastructure
                only as it relates to water, freight and intermodal regional transit
                services.
