-- APRIL 29th Deadline --
The U.S. Department of Transportation recently announced that the Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) Discretionary Grant program has up to $500 million available for capital projects related to highways, bridges, public transportation, rail, ports, and intermodal projects. A primary selection criterion specifically mentions addressing environmental sustainability including avoiding adverse environmental impacts to water quality, providing environmental benefits such as ground water recharge in areas of water scarcity, and stormwater mitigation, including green infrastructure. Applicants are encouraged to provide quantitative information, including baseline information that demonstrates how the project will reduce stormwater runoff.
Eligible applicants are State, local, and tribal governments, transit agencies, port authorities, metropolitan planning organizations, other political subdivisions of State or local governments, and multi-State or multi-jurisdictional groups applying through a lead applicant.
TIGER applications are due no later than April 29, 2016 at 8 PM E.D.T.
