CINCINNATI — Applications for Metro Transit Infrastructure Fund (MTIF) grants will close May 31, 2024, at 2 p.m. Municipalities within Hamilton County are encouraged to submit MTIF applications toward projects that support transit-related improvements, including road, bridge, and sidewalk enhancements within ¾ mile of Metro's service area in Hamilton County.

MTIF application and project guidelines can be found online at go-metro.com/transit-infrastructure-fund. 

Since 2021, through MTIF grants, Metro has allocated $294 million in funds to bolster transportation projects in municipalities across Hamilton County. $204.9M of those funds have been awarded to the Western Hills Viaduct, which receives $14.5M in funding each year for the next 13 years.

The MTIF program was made possible by the passage of Issue 7 in May 2020, when voters approved a 0.8 % sales tax to fund Metro for the next 25 years. Twenty-five percent of these funds are used for transit-related infrastructure improvements throughout Hamilton County.
