The U.S. Department of Transportation recently announced that the Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER Discretionary Grant program) has up to $600 million available for capital projects related to highways, bridges, public transportation, rail, ports, and intermodal projects. A primary selection criterion specifically mentions addressing storm water through natural means, avoiding impacts to water quality and providing benefits like groundwater recharge, brownfield redevelopment and storm water mitigation, including green infrastructure. Of this funding, $35 million is available for project and regional-level planning, which includes factors like storm water and future risks and vulnerabilities like extreme weather and climate change. Eligible applicants are state, local and tribal governments, transit agencies, port authorities, metropolitan planning organizations, other political subdivisions of state or local governments, and multi-State or multi-jurisdictional groups applying through a lead applicant. TIGER applications are due April 28, 2014.
