Curb ramp grants offered by ITD

Grants of up to $60,000 are available to eligible organizations statewide through the Idaho Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Curb Ramp Program. Local jurisdictions — cities, counties, highway districts and tribal governments — are eligible to submit an application. The application period is January 13 - March 13.

The Idaho (ADA) Curb Ramp Program is a state-administered program providing funding for projects to build or correct curb ramps on the state highway system. Funds are for construction starting by 2021 that must be completed within two years.

 ITD allocates $500,000 in state funds annually for this program. Applicants can qualify for up to $60,000 in state funding to construct new or improve existing curb ramps.

 “The goal of the program is to partner with local agencies to provide accessible facilities for all travelers, especially Idaho’s disabled American citizens,” said Ryan McDaniel, ADA Curb Ramp Grant Project Manager.

 Applications are evaluated by ITD, the Local Highway Technical Assistance Council and the Idaho division of the Federal Highway Administration.

Applications are available on the ITD website under the ADA Curb/Ramp Program tab at the “Applications” link below. Completed applications should be sent to ITDAltContracting@itd.idaho.gov
