Announcement of 2014 TIGER Grants Shows Demand for Greater Transportation Investment

September 16, 2014
U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx recently announced that the Department of Transportation (DOT) would provide $600 million for 72 transportation projects in 46 states and the District of Columbia from its 2014 Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER), TIGER Discretionary Grant program.
 
DOT received 797 eligible applications from 49 states, U.S. territories and the District of Columbia, an increase from the 585 applications received in 2013. Applicants requested 15 times the $600 million available for the program, or $9 billion for needed transportation projects.
 
Since 2009, Congress has dedicated more than $4.1 billion for six rounds to fund projects that have a significant impact on the Nation, a region or a metropolitan area.
