Multimodal Local Supplement Program

Funding Details Released by WisDOT

Join us at REL’s Office for a webinar

Wisconsin’s 2019-21 budget provides $75 million in one-time general purpose revenue funding (GPR) for multimodal transportation projects on the local system through the Multimodal Local Supplement (MLS). The MLS program mirrors aspects of the Local Roads Improvement Program (LRIP) but is not subject to the same restrictions and is available to an expanded range of project improvement types.

The program pays up to 90% of total eligible costs with local governments providing a minimum of 10% cost share.

MLS funding is available for new projects statewide related to:
• Roads
• Bridges
• Transit vehicle purchase and facility projects
• Bicycle and pedestrian accommodations
• Railroads
• Harbors

Local units of government can apply for design and construction or construction only; design only funding is not eligible through this program.

MLS is a reimbursement program, allowing for partial reimbursement as the local sponsor incurs costs throughout the project. Local sponsors are responsible for any project cost overage beyond the award amount.

Project application deadline is 5:00 p.m. on Friday, December 6, 2019.
MLS has a minimum project total cost of $250,000 for counties, cities and villages.
MLS minimum project total cost for towns is $50,000.
Project awards will be announced in early 2020.
