PITTSBURGH—At a public meeting today, the RAD Board announced that RAD is now accepting applications for 2018 funding, with a deadline of 4:30PM on July 17th. In 2017, RAD will provide $97.5 million in grants to nearly 100 assets in the categories of libraries, parks and trails, sports and civic facilities, arts and culture, and transit.
In recommending the application for next year, the Allocations Committee noted that the 2018 program “emphasizes the Board’s duty to preserve a group of quality, well-managed, diverse and inclusive regional assets.”
While RAD will accept applications for discretionary capital projects next year, the Board also emphasized that projects should be “urgent, shovel-ready projects” and that “a match from other sources will be taken into consideration during evaluation.”
