The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) is gearing up to release the FY 2019 solicitation for the highly competitive Better Utilizing Investments to Leverage Development (BUILD) discretionary grant program. Now is the time to get ahead of the curve and begin preparing your project!


In order to help you get ready, TFG is partnering with eCivis to offer a free one-hour webinar on the upcoming BUILD program that will feature TFG Senior Advisor Robert Mariner. Robert wrote the book on BUILD….literally! In 2009, Robert directed the development of the then-TIGER grant program and served as the program director for nearly ten years. Robert has over 20 years of transportation experience, most recently serving as the Deputy Director of the Office of Infrastructure Finance and Innovation DOT.


The BUILD discretionary grant program funds road, rail, transit, and port projects across the country. In the last round of BUILD, DOT awarded 91 capital projects across 49 states and the District of Columbia. Of those 91 projects, 62 awards went to rural projects and 29 awards went to urban projects. Awards in the next round of BUILD are expected to be split 50% rural/50% urban. The application period will be 90 days.


Don’t miss this great opportunity to gain insight into grant eligibility requirements, the selection criteria that DOT will likely use to evaluate project proposals, and offer helpful hints on how to get ready now and prepare a winning grant application.
