    Counties directly eligible for $1.5 billion through U.S. Department of Transportation FY 2023 RAISE Grants

    On November 30, the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) announced the availability of $1.5 billion in competitive funding through the Office of the Secretary’s Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity (RAISE) grants. Counties can apply directly to USDOT for RAISE grants, formerly known as BUILD and TIGER under previous administrations, to support surface transportation infrastructure projects with significant local or regional impacts.

    The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL/P.L. 117-58) provides up to $15 billion over five years for RAISE grants that allow counties and other eligible applicants to carry out a wide variety of activities, including highway, bridge, culvert, transit, port and airport surface transportation projects. The program’s flexibility has landed it amongst USDOT’s most oversubscribed grant programs since its creation in 2009. The deadline to apply is February 28, 2023. View more information and instructions for applying here.

    As leaders in the nation’s transportation system, RAISE grants help counties construct and improve critical transportation infrastructure to foster safe and thriving communities. Owning and operating more roads and bridges than any other level of government and supporting over one-third of the nation’s airport and transit systems, counties are keeping Americans connected in every corner of the country and applaud opportunities like RAISE that help us meet our vast infrastructure responsibilities.
