Current Grant Opportunities

Transportation Economic Development Infrastructure Grant
The Department of Employment and Economic Development’s (DEED) Transportation Economic Development Infrastructure Program (TEDI) is a competitive grant program available to communities for road and public infrastructure projects that create jobs and support economic development. DEED's program is combined with the Transportation Economic Development Program (TED) administered by the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) for highway projects.

A total of approximately $22.6 million is available through the 2017 programs. This includes approximately $18.4 million in MnDOT trunk highway funds and approximately $4.2 million of DEED general obligation bond funding. The programs may provide a portion of the costs for trunk highway improvements and other road and infrastructure improvements. The deadline to apply is Sept. 15.

Information sessions are being offered throughout the state in June to provide detailed information on how to apply for the funds.
