RPA 8 now accepting RCTP grant applications

RPA 8 is now accepting Rural County Transportation Program (RCTP) grant applications from cities in the RPA 8 area. To apply for an RCTP grant, cities should complete the online questionnaire and submit all required application materials by 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 14th, 2024.

The RCTPs are county-led grant programs that provide funding to small cities to help implement non-federal aid transportation projects. Delaware, Dubuque, Jackson, and Clinton counties have created RCTP programs. The counties distribute RCTP funds to cities through a competitive application process. The counties have agreements with RPA 8 staff to administer the program and help cities with writing applications.
