Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx announced today that the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) has awarded 37 states with a total of $474 million in Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grants.
In his announcement on USDOT’s Fast Lane blog, Foxx said USDOT received 585 applications for TIGER grants this year alone.
