Rural County Transportation Program (RCTP) Grants
Rural County Transportation Programs (RCTP) 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.
The Fiscal Year 2024 RCTP application cycle has been completed. The memos below summarize the results of the application ranking process in each county. The funding history report provides a summary of the funds awarded through the RCTP, including the funds awarded in the FY 2024 grant cycle.
