Ga. DOT accepting GATEway Grant applications in southeast Ga.

Posted: Updated:
JESUP, GA (WTOC) -

The Georgia Department of Transportation has announced that it is now accepting applications for GATEway Grants from local government entities in Southeast Georgia.

The deadline for new applications is Feb. 28.

The Georgia DOT Roadside Enhancement and Beautification Council will review the applications.

Local government entities that are awarded a grant will be reimbursed up to $50,000 for their costs for plant material and its installation for their enhancement projects at significant entrances on GDOT rights of way.

Funds are limited.  However, if a local government entity is not awarded a grant in the first round, its application might still be eligible for a second round of awards later in the year. 

GATEway Grants are funded through the Georgia DOT GATEway Program by revenues from permits for Vegetation Management at Outdoor Advertising Signs. 

Interested parties can find out more about GATEway Grants and print out applications at the GDOT GATEway Grant web site http://www.dot.ga.gov/localgovernment/FundingPrograms/gateway/Pages/default.aspx.
