NIRPC to release applications for its Notice of Funding Availability for 2025 and 2026

September 11, 2020

The Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission (NIRPC) is releasing its applications for the Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA).  NIRPC will take applications for the NOFA from September 11 to October 21, 2020.

NIRPC’s NOFA is a call for projects that support its Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).  The TIP is a short-range financial and spending plan for the utilization of federal transportation funding. These funds can be used for highway, transit, and non-motorized transportation projects. NIRPC offers its NOFA every two years, prior to producing its TIP. Towns, cities, counties and transit operators are allowed to submit projects for their communities for the 2020 NOFA.

NIRPC will hold a workshop for municipalities and counties on September 29th at 9:30 am to answer any questions.   The workshop will be held virtually (on-line).  NIRPC staff will also be available to meet with applicants individually between now and October 16th. NIRPC will be following CDC guidelines for all in-person meetings.

Applications, related documents and other information will be available for review on NIRPC’s website here. Requests for alternative formats may be directed to NIRPC by calling 219-763-6060, or by email at TTY users may use the Relay Indiana service by calling 711 or 800-743-3333.

NIRPC is the Metropolitan Planning Organization and regional council of local governments for Northwest Indiana.  NIRPC’s purpose, as put forth in Indiana state statute, is to “provide a coordinative management process for Lake, Porter, and LaPorte Counties and to institute and maintain a comprehensive planning and programming process for transportation, economic development, and environmental policy.
