USDOT Announces $900 Million for Freight, Highway Grants

Transportation officials nationwide who are seeking a federal boost to help advance major freight or highway projects may find it in the form of a federal grant.

The U.S. Department of Transportation announced this week that slightly more than $900 million has been made available for the Infrastructure for Rebuilding America, or INFRA, grants.

Applications for the grants will be accepted through Feb. 25. Entities interested in vying for a grant are asked to emphasize national and regional economic vitality, a strategy for attracting nonfederal sources of funding, innovative technology and accountability.
