Smart City Grant Program (Watch) 

<p>Smart City Grant Program (Watch) </p><p> HB 633 (Fischer) and SB 852 (Brandes) create a Florida Smart City Grant Program within the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). The purpose of this program is to provide incentives for municipalities and other regions of the state to develop innovative smart mobility solutions to local transportation challenges. The bills require FDOT to issue a request for proposals for the grant awards and submit a quarterly report to the Legislature. Finally, the bills authorize FDOT to award a Florida Smart City Challenge Grant to maximum of three recipients. Each award may not exceed $6 million. (<a href="mailto">Branch</a>)</p>
