NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Department of Transportation is providing grants to help local communities with transportation projects and planning.

This is the second grant cycle for the Multimodal Access Grants and the first year for the Community Transportation Planning Grants.

Examples of projects eligible under the multimodal grant program include sidewalks and pedestrian crossing improvements, bus shelters, park and ride facilities, and bicycle lanes.

The planning grant aims to help communities develop local transportation plans that support the statewide transportation system. Planning activities eligible for the grant include corridor studies, complete street plans, local road concepts and transportation ordinances.

Project costs for the multimodal grant cannot exceed $1 million, and $250,000 is the limit for the planning grant.
