Better Utilizing Investments to Leverage Development (BUILD) Program

The BUILD Transportation Grants are administered by the United States Department of Transportation.  The current grant solicitation will make $1.5 billion available to surface transportation projects throughout the county that align with the merit criteria described in the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO). BUILD replaces the pre-existing TIGER grants program. Like TIGER, FY 2018 BUILD Transportation Grants are for investments in surface transportation infrastructure and are to be awarded on a competitive basis for projects that will have a significant local or regional impact.
