Award Procedures
All grant applications are assigned to Bureau of Safety Programs and Engineering (BSPE) staff for reviewing and scoring based on specific criteria. First, an application is assigned to a staff member along with a project evaluation template for an initial review. A second review will be completed by one of IDOT’s Motorcycle Safety Unit staff. Then the final score will be calculated by averaging the first two reviewer’s scores. Selected applicants will receive a Notice of State Award (NOSA). Applicants that were not selected will receive a denial letter. After the merit-based review and selection is completed, applicants that have been denied funding have the ability to appeal the decision. This is done by submitting a formal letter to the BSPE. This letter may present the case in which the applicant believes they should have received funding. Please contact 217-782-3568 for specifics.
