Port Infrastructure Development Program
The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) will establish the Port Infrastructure Development Program (PIDP) to fund projects that improve port resiliency to address sea-level rise, flooding, extreme weather events, earthquakes, and tsunami inundation, as well as projects that reduce or eliminate port-related criteria pollutant or greenhouse gas emissions. Funded projects may include:
- Port electrification or electrification master planning;
- Development of port or terminal micro-grids;
- Worker training to support electrification technology; and,
- Electric vehicle charging or hydrogen fueling infrastructure.
Funding is authorized through fiscal year 2026. Applications for the first funding round are due May 16, 2022. For more information, see the Notice of Funding Opportunity announcement and the PIDP website.
