Anticipated this fall - 2020 Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program (ITEP) Application Cycle.

The ITEP program is a 2-year cycle with the last round due in the fall of 2017 ( 2018 Cycle 13).  In that round 53 out of 218 projects were selected for a total award amount of $35.7 million out of $252 million requested. Applications for these funds are highly competitive. 

ITEP’s new requirement is that communities must have Phase I Engineering completed and proof must be submitted with the application.  Because of this, we are sending this notification now so your community can start working on your projects.
