The Department of Transportation has announced the availability of $600 million in grants for capital investments in surface transportation infrastructure for projects that "will have a significant impact on the Nation; a metropolitan area; or a region" (Docket No. DOT-OST- 2010-0076). This program is a continuation of a program begun under the "Recovery Act," known as the Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery ("TIGER") Discretionary Grant Program. Under TIGER, $1.5 billion of grants were awarded in 2009. Congress appropriated $600 million for TIGER, made some changes to the program for Fiscal Year 2010 in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2010, and the program is now known as the TIGER II Discretionary Grant program.
