The FY2017 Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) was published today in the Federal Register (see attached NOFO and press release).  The application deadline for the 2017 TIGER solicitation is October 16, 2017.  The Department of Transportation will hold public webinars on September 13 and 19 regarding “How to Compete for TIGER Grants” and on September 18 regarding “Preparing a Benefit Cost Analysis,” all from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. EDT.  To register, please visit the TIGER Webinar Series webpage.


The program has remained largely unchanged from previous rounds; the primary differences include an increased focus on projects that exceed the minimum cost share requirements and on projects that serve communities in rural areas.


Prior applicants to the TIGER program will be contacted directly by the TIGER program office regarding the opportunity to apply and will receive instructions for registering for webinars.  New applicants and interested parties are also encouraged to register and apply; please share this email as appropriate.
