TIGER GRANT

DOT Announces TIGER Grant Funding (cont.)

In an accompanying DOT press release, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said TIGER grants will “promote greater mobility, a cleaner environment and more-livable communities.”

As a single program, TIGER resembles a microcosm of the activities that DOT regularly supports with a wide range of established grants. Eligible projects include highway or bridge work normally funded under programs like the Surface Transportation Program; public transportation projects, such as those funded by the New Starts or Small Starts program; passenger and freight rail infrastructure projects; and port infrastructure projects.


Eligible TIGER grantees include state, local, tribal and territorial government entities, such as transit agencies, port authorities and multijurisdictional coalitions. Award amounts will range from a minimum of $20 million to a maximum of $300 million, though DOT may waive the minimum threshold in the case of small projects.


And unlike most federal grant programs, which receive applications by mail or electronically through Grants.gov, DOT will only accept TIGER applications by e-mail, at TIGERGrants@dot.gov.


As more details about the program emerge, including any changes implemented by DOT in response to public comments submitted regarding today’s notice, stay tuned to the Economic Recovery Grants Center!

Secretary LaHood Announces Funding for Over 50 Innovative, Strategic Transportation Projects through Landmark Competitive TIGER Program
Recovery Act-Funded Projects Will Create Jobs, Spur Lasting Economic Growth

One year to the day after President Obama signed the historic American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) into law, Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood announced Recovery Act awards to states, tribal governments, cities, counties and transit agencies across the country to fund 51 innovative transportation projects.

The TIGER (Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery) Discretionary Grant Program was included in the Recovery Act to spur a national competition for innovative, multi-modal and multi-jurisdictional transportation projects that promise significant economic and environmental benefits to an entire metropolitan area, a region or the nation. Projects funded with the $1.5 billion allocated in the Recovery Act include improvements to roads, bridges, rail, ports, transit and intermodal facilities.
