US DOT’s Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) program has funded eight rounds of transportation-focused, economic-generating projects in communities across the country. The highly competitive TIGER grant program supports innovative projects, including multi-modal and multi-jurisdictional projects, which are difficult to fund through traditional federal programs.
Since 2009, the TIGER grant program has provided a combined $5.1 billion to 421 projects in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Virgin Islands, and tribal communities. These federal funds leverage money from private sector partners, states, local governments, metropolitan planning organizations and transit agencies.
FTA acts as the administering modal agency for projects that directly impact public transportation. FTA helps to ensure that recipients have the technical assistance and support necessary to successfully complete their projects throughout the development and implementation process.
