About Port Infrastructure Development Grants

The Port Infrastructure Development Program (PIDP) is a discretionary grant program administered by the U.S. Maritime Administration. Funds for the PIDP are awarded on a competitive basis to projects that improve the safety, efficiency, or reliability of the movement of goods into, out of, around, or within a port. In FY2022, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) appropriated $450 million to the PIDP. An additional $234 million was made available to the program under FY2022 Consolidated Appropriations Act. Finally, reallocated funds from the FY 2021 PIDP program also remained available for use, resulting in a total of $703,123,800 in FY 2022 PIDP grant funding available for award.

While the PIDP program is no longer accepting applications for FY2022, please note there will be a future round of PIDP grant making. The BIL provided $450 million to make awards to PIDP grants in FY2023. Additionally, if subsequent funds are made available for award to FY 2023 PIDP under a future Consolidated Appropriations Act, this page will be updated to reflect the new total amount available.

MARAD is also available to provide application de-briefs to unsuccessful FY22 PIDP applicants. To schedule a debrief, one of the representatives of the applicant should send an e-mail to the account,

Additionally, if you are considering applying for a FY2023 PIDP grant and would like to understand how the process worked in prior years please consider viewing the full FY2022 PIDP Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for additional information about the program. You can find the FY2022 NOFO at this Link.
