Byways Grant Program

Discover Charles Street > Byway Management > Byways Grant Program


The Federal Highway Administration’s National Scenic Byway program has awarded more than $200,000 to fund projects to promote awareness of the byway, its historic resources, and its potential as a destination for heritage tourism travelers. The grant money, often matched with funding from the Maryland Heritage Areas Authority and staff resources from the heritage area, has supported numerous projects and initiatives of the BHAA and its partners.

Although the funding is from the Federal Highway Administration, grant administration is carried out by the Maryland State Highway Administration.

Note: Funding for National Scenic Byway grants was eliminated in the most recent transportation bill, Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21). Grant funding for byway-related capital projects may still be available under the Surface Transportation Program and the Transportation Alternatives Program (construction of turnouts, overlooks, and viewing areas; historic preservation and rehabilitation of historic transportation facilities related to a byway; and bicycle and pedestrian facilities along a byway). Please contact the Maryland State Highway Administration for more information on possible funding.
