Revitalizing Main Streets

On March 19, Governor Polis signed SB 110, allocating $30M in economic stimulus funding for the Revitalizing Main Streets program. The program now has two grant opportunities: Larger Safety Infrastructure Grants and Small Multimodal & Economic Resiliency Projects. More information can be found below and on our website.

New Funding Details
The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is launching this grant program with two separate applications:

Grant Opportunity 1: Larger Safety Infrastructure Grants
Up to $22M available statewide
Applicants may be awarded up to $2 million to improve user safety along urban arterials or “main street” corridors, especially for vulnerable users such as pedestrians, bikers, motorcyclists, transit users, elderly adults, and people with disabilities. Applicable roadways must be non-freeway corridors that accommodate multiple modes of transportation.

Grant Opportunity 2: Small Multimodal & Economic Resiliency Projects
Up to $9M* available statewide
Applicants may be awarded up to $150,000 per project to support infrastructure projects that provide improved spaces for mobility, community activities and economic development in the wake of the COVID-19 emergency. Note: approximately $900,000 remains from the initial Revitalizing Main Streets program, making the total amount for Grant Opportunity 2 approximately $9 million.
