(SR300)Talking Freight - Completed TIGER Program Freight Projects: Reports from the Project Sponsors
4/17/2013 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM EST
The TIGER Discretionary Grant Program has provided over $3 billion in funding over 100 different projects since it was first introduced as part of the Recovery Act in 2009. Many of the projects selected to receive funding in the program have been freight-focused projects. Some of the TIGER grants have focused on smaller-scale facilities or more localized improvements, while others have helped larger-scale projects that are important components of the national supply chain. Many of the projects from the early iterations of the TIGER programs are nearing completion, allowing everyone to see the benefits the TIGER funds provided to the freight projects. This webinar will allow the project sponsors for three different freight-oriented TIGER projects that are nearly complete to discuss the freight benefits provided by their projects and their experiences with receiving TIGER funds and working within the TIGER grant program.
