The amount of funding a project receives will be determined from the cost estimate included with the project application. Preliminary and construction engineering, right-of-way, utility relocation, and construction are eligible phases for federal aid. This program will participate in all requested Title 23 CFR eligible activities up to the approved award. The NDDOT will determine either to complete activities with internal staff or will hire a qualified consultant following the procedures outlined in the CAS Manual. For projects on the Urban Roads System, the city must follow the CAS Manual procedures for consultant selection if using federal aid.
All cost overruns or ineligible costs will be the responsibility of the LPA.
The LPA matching funds must be from a non-federal source.
The NDDOT will distribute these funds through an advisory committee comprised of six members. This 6 member group consists of representatives from:
Projects are selected on a competitive basis. The advisory committee will review the applications submitted and prioritize the projects to be submitted to the Director for funding.
