DOT Announces Third Round of TIGER Grants

Posted on: July 12th, 2011 by Jennifer Walsh

On June 30, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) announced that $527 million will be available for the third round of the Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) program grants.  To date, the TIGER program has funded roads, bridges, freight rails, transit buses and streetcars, ports, and bicycle and pedestrian paths.  DOT is expected to publish a notice of funding availability within the week.  Unlike the FY2010 Appropriations Act, the FY2011 Continuing Appropriations Act does not provide any funding for projects solely for the planning, preparation, or design of capital projects; however, these activities may be eligible to the extent that they are part of an overall construction project that receives TIGER funding.  Applications will be due in the fall.  Additional information on the TIGER program is available at http://www.dot.gov/tiger/ (http://www NULL.dot NULL.gov/tiger/).
