TIGER Discretionary Grants Program Webinar
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 appropriated $1.5 billion of discretionary grant funds (TIGER Discretionary Grants) for capital investments in surface transportation infrastructure to be awarded by the U.S. Department of Transportation. These TIGER Discretionary Grants are to be awarded on a competitive basis to projects that have a significant impact on the Nation, a metropolitan area, or a region. A webinar was held on June 9, 2009 on the TIGER Discretionary Grants Program. Tony Furst from FHWA's Office of Freight Management and Operations and Jake Falk from U.S. DOT's Office of the Secretary discussed the program, selection criteria, evaluations, and application process. The recording, powerpoint, transcript and Q and A now available in the Talking Freight Archives.
