II. USDOT TIGER Grants Available & Instructional Webinars this Week

The U.S. Department of Transportation has announced $500 million in discretionary grant funding. The Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) are now available to communities interested in creating trails and trail connections. The focus is on major transportation projects, but trail advocates might be able to find a way to help projects become truly multimodal projects, complete missing trail links, and bring communities together with trail connections. Questions may be directed to Federal Highway Administration TIGER program staff (Ryan Brumfield or Sam Snead).

The Department of Transportation will hold public webinars on September 13 and 19 regarding “How to Compete for TIGER Grants” and on September 18 regarding “Preparing a Benefit Cost Analysis,”; click here to register.

Be sure to also visit the League’s Grant Resource Center online; updated monthly with links to funding opportunities.

Executive Director
