The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2018 made available $1.5 billion for National Infrastructure Investments, otherwise known as BUILD Transportation Discretionary grants, through September 30, 2020. For this round of BUILD Transportation grants, the maximum grant award is $25 million, and no more than $150 million can be awarded to a single State, as specified in the FY 2018 Appropriations Act. At least 30 percent of funds must be awarded to projects located in rural areas.
To provide technical assistance to a broad array of stakeholders, DOT is hosting a series of webinars during the FY 2018 BUILD grant application process.
A webinar on how to compete for BUILD Transportation Grants for all applicants will be held on Thursday, May 24;
A webinar for rural and tribal applicants will be held on Tuesday, May 29; and
A webinar on how to prepare a benefit cost analysis for a BUILD application will be held on Thursday, May 31.
All webinars will take place from 2:00-4:00 PM EDT.
Details and registration information regarding these webinars will be made available at https://www.transportation.gov/BUILDgrants/outreach.
The Department will schedule additional webinars on these topics in June.
