The Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery Fund
The Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery, or TIGER Discretionary Grant program, provides a unique opportunity for the U.S. Department of Transportation to invest in road, rail, transit and port projects that promise to achieve critical national objectives. Congress dedicated $1.5 billion for TIGER I, $600 million for TIGER II, $526.944 million for FY 2011 and $500 million for the FY 2012 round of TIGER Grants to fund projects that have a significant impact on the Nation, a region or a metropolitan area. On April 22, 2013, the Office of the Secretary of Transportation announced a DOT award of $473.847 million to the TIGER program.
Determining the costs, benefits, and positive impacts of large infrastructure projects requires rigorous data-driven analyses. Every year, Econsult Solutions, Inc. provides applicants for the Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) Discretionary grants with the right support for submitting accurate, convincing, and competitive grant applications.
