Description: The National Highway Freight Program provides funds to the States, by formula, to improve the efficient movement of freight on the National Highway Freight Network.
Eligible Recipients: Formula funding to States (including District of Columbia)
Eligible Uses: Projects that contribute to the efficient movement of freight on the National Highway Freight Network and are identified in a freight investment plan included in the State’s freight plan. A range of activities are eligible for these funds, such as projects to reduce the environmental impacts of freight movement, adding road capacity to address highway freight bottlenecks, or a highway or bridge project to improve the flow of freight on the national highway freight network. In addition, a State may use not more than 30 percent of its total National Highway Freight Program funds each year for freight intermodal or freight rail projects, subject to certain restrictions
