Time is Running Out: Tell Congress to Support the TIGER and Transit Programs in FY 2017

Posted on February 25, 2016 by Dene Westbrook

Congress is currently finalizing appropriations requests for FY 2017 and you have only one week to tell Congress to support TIGER and Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) Capital Investment programs.

Please consider supporting a fully funded TIGER and Capital Investment Programs by signing onto T4A’s nationwide support letter. Deadline: Friday February 26th, 2016.

  • Read and Sign Transportation for America’s TIGER and Capital Investment Program support letter.

The incredibly popular TIGER grant program is one of the few ways that local communities can apply for and win funds from the federal government for important priority projects of almost any kind. This important program gets the best locally-supported projects off the ground. In 2015, TIGER funded 39 projects in 34 states.
