Still, getting to all of the information and emails that accumulated while I was in California. Apologies for being a bit late on this. TIGER II, the Department of Transportation grant program means funding for transit programs. Grants will be available for planning and for projects that will have a significant impact on the Nation, a metropolitan area or a region.
Information about the funding and how to apply can be found at:
Department of Transportation: DOT has a TIGER II resource page.
Federal Highway Administration webinars: These are recorded and are available online. Webinars are covering both the discretionary and the planning grants.
National Association of Regional Councils has a good discretionary grant cheat sheet that summarizes the goals, deadlines, eligibility, application procedures, etc.
