Today, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) announced 41 recipients of nearly $500 million in discretionary grant funding through the Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) program. Learn more about the selected projects here.
Since 2009, TIGER discretionary grants have supported capital projects which repair bridges or improve infrastructure to a state of good repair; projects that implement safety improvements to reduce fatalities and serious injuries, including improving grade crossings or providing shorter or more direct access to critical health services; projects that connect communities and people to jobs, services, and education; and, projects that anchor economic revitalization and job growth in communities. The program remains highly competitive, receiving 452 eligible applications requesting over $6.1 billion. Of the eligible applications, DOT funded roughly 9%.
Congratulations to all the 2017 TIGER winners!
