Description: This is an explanatory webinar on how to prepare a benefit cost analysis as part of a TIGER application or an INFRA application and is intended for all applicants.

The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017 appropriated $500 million for National Infrastructure Investments, otherwise known as Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grants. As with previous rounds of TIGER, funds for the FY 2017 TIGER grants program are to be awarded on a competitive basis for projects that will have a significant impact on the Nation, a metropolitan area, or a region. The deadline to submit an application for the FY 2017 TIGER grant program is 8:00PM EDT on Monday, October 16.

The Infrastructure For Rebuilding America (INFRA) Grants program provides dedicated, discretionary funding for projects that address critical issues facing our nation’s highways and bridges. The INFRA program will make approximately $1.5 billion available to projects that are in line with the Administration’s principles to help rebuild America’s crumbling infrastructure. Applications for FY 2017 and FY 2018 INFRA grants are due no later than 8:00PM EST, November 2, 2017.

They are provided for demonstrative purposes only, so that Applicants may see a range of the possibilities with BCA submissions by successful Applicants across different project types and geographies.
