Nominations will be accepted from the following entities: North Carolina town, city, county, metropolitan planning organization (MPO), rural planning organization (RPO), public transportation system/authority, or airport authority.
You may apply for only one category per project/application.
* The county in which the project is located determines which of these four categories the project may compete in (this excludes innovation, which is a category open to all projects). To determine which of these categories to select (i.e., rural, urban, suburban, or tourism), refer to this link. If the project is in more than one county, choose the county the project is primarily in.
You may choose only one category per application, however more than one application may be submitted for a project under multiple categories (for example: one project may be submitted with two applications – one under rural and one under innovation).
