[ARCHIVED] US DOT Launches BUILD Transportation Program; Plans Technical Assistance Webinars

BUILD transportation grant

The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has published a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) to apply for $1.5 billion in discretionary grant funding through the Better Utilizing Investments to Leverage Development (BUILD) Transportation Discretionary Grants program. BUILD Transportation grants replace the pre-existing Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grant program.

As the Administration looks to enhance America's infrastructure, FY 2018 BUILD Transportation grants are for investments in surface transportation infrastructure and are to be awarded on a competitive basis for projects that will have a significant local or regional impact. BUILD funding can support roads, bridges, transit, rail, ports or intermodal transportation. Projects for BUILD will be evaluated based on merit criteria that include safety, economic competitiveness, quality of life, environmental protection, state of good repair, innovation, partnership, and additional non-Federal revenue for future transportation infrastructure investments. 

To provide technical assistance to a broad array of stakeholders, DOT is hosting a series of webinars during the FY 2018 BUILD grant application process. All webinars will take place from 11:00am -1:00pm PDT. 

  • Thursday, May 24 - How to Compete for BUILD Transportation Grants - All Applicants - Register Here
  • Tuesday, May 29 - How to Compete for BUILD Transportation Grants - Rural & Tribal Applicants - Register Here
  • Thursday, May 31 - Preparing a Benefit Cost Analysis (BCA) for a BUILD Application - Register Here

Details and registration information regarding these webinars will also be made available at The Department will schedule additional webinars on these topics in June. 

Prospective BUILD applicants are encouraged to look through the full Notice of Funding Opportunity. Applications are due by 8:00 PM EDT on July 19, 2018.
