As I stated in my June RMAP Blog, the TIGER Grant is a discretionary pool of $1.5 billion dollars nationwide, with each state’s funding capped at $300 million. The funding guidelines are broad, but the Secretary of Transportation has considerable latitude to select projects that will generate economic recovery in the Unites States. I spent the majority of this month drafting the TIGER Grant with Dr. Lee Hutchins, Director of Freight Logistics & Planning for AECOM in Chicago.

To view documents related to RMAP’s TIGER Grant Application, please visit the Planning Areas page, click on TIGER and then any of the links under that category. There you will see documents including the actual submitted TIGER Grant, the Appendices, the TIGER Fact Sheet, and graphics.

The Grant totaled $71.4 million, and was split into two main components:

1) Passenger rail upgrades, totaling approximately $20 million.

-These dollars would concentrate on passenger rail station upgrades, the downtown rail consolidation, and some rail crossing upgrades.

2) Freight rail upgrades, totaling approximately $50 million.

-These upgrades would concentrate on the tracks located at the Chicago Rockford International Airport south toward Davis Junction and Flagg Center (Illinois Railway).  Connections in Davis Junction provide interchange with the Canadian Pacific Railroad and interchange with the Burlington Northern-Santa Fe Railroad in Flagg Center. These connections are crucial as they allow for increased ability to handle freight throughout this corridor, which should generate economic development projects and opportunities in our region.

Throughout the United States 1,400 TIGER Grant Applications were received totaling over $100 billion dollars. This is almost100 times the available funding of $1.5 billion, so it is a highly competitive grant and it is inevitable that many projects will not be funded. Interestingly, approximately half of the applications received related to funding for highway and bridge projects, with the other half split among passenger rail, freight rail and port facility projects.
