As we continue our work in partnership to advance all parts of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) – I am pleased to announce that the US DOT has just launched a new informational portal that should provide good help to understand the various programs contained in BIL - and provide information on upcoming grant opportunities. The DOT Navigator https://www.transportation.gov/dot-navigator is a new “one-stop shop” that provides essential information to help our stakeholders and communities apply for grants, identify existing resources, and answer questions on how to connect with funding opportunities provided through BIL. It provides an array of resources across the Department designed to provide technical assistance and help stakeholders navigate the grant application, transportation planning, project delivery, funding and financing, and implementation processes. There are specific focus areas included in this portal to provide informational assistance based upon the type of stakeholder – such as State DOTs, Local Governments, Tribal Nations, MPOs, Transit Agencies, and Other Transportation Stakeholders such as Non-Profits, etc.
I encourage you all to check it out as we work to implement the BIL’s once-in-a-generation investment in our National Infrastructure that will help grow the economy, enhance U.S. competitiveness, create good jobs, and build a Safe, Resilient, and Equitable transportation future!
