GRANT OPPORTUNITIES

INFRA

The Infrastructure For Rebuilding America (INFRA) grants program provides dedicated, discretionary funding for projects that address critical issues facing out nation's highways and bridges. INFRA grants will support the Administration's commitment to fixing our nation's crumbling infrastructure by creating opportunities for all levels of government and the private sector to fund infrastructure, using innovative approaches to improve the necessary processes for building significant projects, and increasing accountability for the projects that are built.

BUILD

The Better Utilizing Investments to Leverage Development (BUILD) Transportation Discretionary Grants program replaces the pre-existing Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grant program. BUILD Transportation grants are for investments in surface transportation infrastructure and are to be awarded on a competitive basis for projects that will have a significant local or regional impact. BUILD funding can support roads, bridges, transit, rail, ports or intermodal transportation.

TRANSPORTATION ALTERNATIVES

The Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) provides funding for programs and projects defined as transportation alternatives, including on- and off-road pedestrian and bicycle facilities, infrastructure projects for improving non-driver access to public transportation and enhanced mobility, community improvement activities​, and environmental mitigation; recreational trail programs projects; safe routes to school projects; and projects for planning, designing, or constructing boulevards and other roadways largely in the right-of-way of former Interstate System routes or other divided highways. For most TAP projects, the Federal share is the same as for the general Federal-aid highway program: 80 percent Federal/20 percent State or local match.

RECREATIONAL TRAILS

The Recreational Trails Program (RTP) provides funds to the States for the development of community-based, motorized and non-motorized recreational trails projects. The program provides funds for all kinds of recreational trail uses, such as pedestrian uses (hiking, running, wheelchair use), bicycling, in-line skating, equestrian use, cross-country skiing, off-road motorcycling, all-terrain vehicle riding, four-wheel driving. The RTP is an assistance program of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). For most RTP projects, the Federal share is the same as for the general Federal-aid highway program: 80 percent Federal/20 percent State or local match.
