U.S. Department of Transportation is Accepting Applications for BUILD Grant Funding
April 25, 2019
The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has released a Notice of Funding Opportunity for $900 million for the Better Utilizing Investments to Leverage Development (BUILD) Transportation Discretionary Grants Program.
Funds for the Fiscal Year 2019 BUILD Transportation grants program will be awarded on a competitive basis for surface transportation infrastructure projects that will have a significant local or regional impact. The BUILD program directly awards grants to local governments for projects that are not generally eligible for funding under existing surface transportation formula programs, including those which increase the quality of life and economic competitiveness of communities across the country, particularly in rural areas. BUILD funding can support roads, bridges, transit, rail, ports or intermodal transportation.
Applications must be submitted by 8 p.m. ET on July 15, 2019.
To learn more about the BUILD application process, please register for one of DOT’s upcoming webinars.
