The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) announces the availability of $2.75 million of funding for its Zero Emission Research Opportunity (ZERO). This solicitation also will establish eligibility for possible future funding, subject to Congressional appropriations and FTA approval, for ZERO. The purpose of the program is to facilitate the advancement, production, and deployment of zero-emission public transportation vehicle technology and related infrastructure. FTA intends to select, and enter into cooperative agreements with, multiple (up to three) nonprofit consortia to build on past research innovation and development efforts to facilitate the deployment of zero-emission vehicles and associated advanced technology. Eligibility for future ZERO funding opportunities in fiscal years 2017-2020 will be limited to those nonprofit consortia selected under this fiscal year 2017 notice. Potential research partners such as transit agencies, other nonprofits, vendors, suppliers and systems integrators may work with multiple consortia.

The FAA Research Grants Program encourages and supports innovative, advanced research of potential benefit to the long-term growth of civil aviation and Commercial Space Transportation. The pursuit of basic and applied research in scientific and engineering disciplines that have the potential to further knowledge and understanding on a broad front of emerging technologies is crucial to the realization of this goal. The intent is to encourage applied research and development to enhance technology assimilation, transfer, and
development in the FAA. The Research Grants Program does not require the immediate application to Research, Engineering, and Development (R,E&D) programs, although this may occur in some cases. The agency encourages the submission of proposals that embrace the entire spectrum of physical, chemical, biological, medical, psychological, mathematical, and engineering sciences.

The State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board) provides funding for the planning, design, and construction of water recycling projects that offset or augment state fresh water supplies. There are two programs within this fund:
Planning Grants: The purpose of the planning grant is to assist agencies or regions with completing feasibility studies for water recycling projects using treated municipal wastewater and/or treated groundwater from sources contaminated by human activities. Only local public agencies are eligible to apply for planning grants.
Construction Grants: The Water Recycling Funding Program provides grants and financing to eligible applicants for the construction of water recycling facilities. Construction projects may be funded with grants and low interest financing from a state bond, a CWSRF financing agreement, or combinations of funding sources. Eligible applicants are local public agencies, nonprofit organizations, public utilities, state & federal recognized Indian tribes, and mutual water companies.
Deadline: December 2030 (currently accepting applications via FAAST system)
Amount: $75,000 (for Planning Grants); $15-$20 Million (for Construction Grants)
Match: 50% (for Planning Grants); 35% (for Construction Grants)
Eligible Applicants: Local Public Agencies
This Grant will expire on September 20, 2020
The AID Demonstration program provides funding as an incentive for eligible entities to accelerate the implementation and adoption of innovation in highway transportation.  The AID Demonstration program is one initiative under the multi-faceted Technology and Innovation Deployment Program (TIDP) approach providing funding and other resources to offset the risk of trying an innovation.

The High Priority (HP) Grant Program is a discretionary (i.e., competitive) program which provides financial assistance to: 1)advance the technological capability and promote HP Innovative Technology Deployment (HP-ITD) to include the deployment of intelligent transportation system (i.e., formerly CVISN) applications for commercial motor vehicle (CMV) operations, including CMVs, commercial drivers, and carrier-specific information systems/networks; to support/maintain CMV information systems/networks; to link Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) information systems with State CMV information systems; to improve the safety and productivity of CMVs and commercial drivers; to reduce costs associated with CMV operations and Federal and State CMV regulatory requirements; and/or 2)carry out HP-CMV Safety activities and projects that augment motor carrier safety activities and projects planned in accordance with the Motor Carrier Safety Assistance Program (MCSAP) including projects related to Performance and Registration Information Systems Management (PRISM) and Safety Data Quality (SaDIP).
This Grant will expire on March 24, 2017
The objective of this area of interest is to accelerate the deployment of commercially available alternative fuel and electric vehicles, as well as supporting infrastructure, through community based partnerships among state and local governments and the private sector. In particular, projects that integrate alternative fuels with new mobility systems or “smart cities” are encouraged. These projects will reduce U.S. dependence on petroleum, increase local fuel diversification, and catalyze the adoption of clean transportation technologies in other communities through the sharing of best practices and the collection and sharing of data. DOE is interested in high impact, highly-leveraged, community-based projects that will catalyze alternative fuel deployment and use. Projects should involve community-based partnerships dedicated to widespread use of alternative fuels and smart mobility technologies. Projects should be designed specifically to be replicable, catalyzing the deployment of clean transportation technologies in other communities through the sharing of best practices and the collection and sharing of data.
