Federal Spending Bill Includes New TIGER Funding

On January 18, 2014, President Obama signed into law the FY14 Omnibus Spending Bill, which approves federal funding through September 30, 2014. For transportation, the bill notably provides $600 million for a new TIGER program, which is $126 million more than was provided for the previous TIGER program.  An anticipated date for TIGER grant requests is not known at this time, but will be announced on this website once a Notice Of Funding Availability is published in the Federal Register.

The Seneca Group Writes Two Successful TIGER V Grants, Projects Receiving Over $11M in Federal Funding

The Seneca Group (Seneca) wrote applications that received funding for two transportation projects in the 5th round of Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) Discretionary Grants. On September 5, 2013, U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx announced that 52 transportation projects in 37 states will receive a total of approximately $474 million from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) 2013 TIGER program. Among these, Seneca developed two winning grant applications for the “Great Western Freight Improvement Project” in Colorado and the “White River Freight Railroad Bridge Replacement Project” in Indiana, respectively funded at $2,790,185 and $8,245,220.

Since the implementation of the TIGER program in 2009, Seneca has brought in close to $43M in total TIGER program funding for various clients through the development of five successful TIGER grants and the lobbying efforts of Chambers Conlon & Hartwell. More information.
