Historic $450 million available for Port Infrastructure Development Program (PIDP) grants from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law
The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Maritime Administration (MARAD) has announced nearly $450 million in newly available grant funding for port-related projects through the Port Infrastructure Development Program (PIDP) — by far the largest investment ever in the program. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law also expanded the list of eligible projects to explicitly include projects that reduce or eliminate port-related criteria pollutant or greenhouse gas emissions such as:
- port electrification or electrification master planning
- harbor craft or equipment replacements or retrofits
- development of port or terminal microgrids
- provision of idling reduction infrastructure
- purchase of cargo handling equipment and related infrastructure
- worker training to support electrification technology
- installation of port bunkering facilities from ocean-going vessels for fuels
- electric vehicle charging or hydrogen refueling infrastructure for drayage and medium or heavy-duty trucks and locomotives that service the port and related grid upgrades; or
- other related port activities, including charging infrastructure, electric rubber-tired gantry cranes, and anti-idling technologies.
MARAD will host a series of webinars explaining the PIDP grant application process. Details and registration information regarding these webinars will be made available here.
These webinars include the "How to Apply for a FY22 PIDP Grant" webcast on March 9, 2022 from 3:00PM - 5:00PM EST. Register for the webinar.
