Federal funding for transportation, determined by the 2020 Census, helps ensure that we can fully fund Black Hawk County’s road regulation and infrastructure, such as the new Viking Road interchange. We also plan public transportation routes and services from Census data. The more accurate our count is, the more likely we’ll be able to obtain adequate funding.
The list of federal grants our Black Hawk County relies upon for keeping our roads safe and fully functioning is:
Department of Transportation (DOT):
Highway Planning and Construction
Federal Transit Formula Grants
Federal Transit Capital Investment Grants
Capital Assistance Program for Elderly Persons and Persons with Disabilities
Formula Grants for Rural Areas
State and Community Highway Safety Grant Program
National Motor Carrier Safety
Federal Transit Metropolitan Planning Grants
