BACKGROUND

The FY 2013 Appropriations Act appropriated $473.847 million to be awarded by DOT for the TIGER Discretionary Grants program. Like previous rounds, the FY 2013 TIGER Discretionary Grants are for capital investments in surface transportation infrastructure and are to be awarded on a competitive basis for projects that will have a significant impact on the Nation, a metropolitan area, or a region. Larger projects of national or regional significance which DOT determines demonstrate achievement of several of the strategic goals, as well as the project readiness criterion, could be considered for grants larger than those typically awarded in recent rounds of TIGER. View a copy of the full Notice of Funding Availability.

***More information about the TIGER program can be found at www.dot.gov/tiger.  Prospective applicants are encouraged to look through Frequently Asked Questions, webinars and other guidance at the Application Resources page.
