The Bureau streamlines credit opportunities and grants and provides access to the credit and grant programs with more speed and transparency, while also providing technical assistance and encouraging innovative best practices in project planning, financing, delivery, and monitoring. To achieve this vision, the Bureau draws upon the full resources of U.S. DOT to best utilize the expertise of all the modes within the Department while promoting a culture of innovation and customer service.
Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST)
The Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act was enacted on December 4, 2015. The FAST Act included substantive and procedural changes to the TIFIA and RRIF programs. The Department is working diligently to implement these changes. It is revising many program websites, guidance documents, and regulations. During the transition, TIFIA and RRIF remain open for applications. Potential applicants interested in the programs should proceed under existing program guidance.
