Discretionary Grant Application KPI

DOT has traditionally played a critical role in maintaining and improving the transportation network across the Nation through Federal funding. Each year, the Department awards discretionary grants through a competitive process based on legislative and regulatory requirements, as well as published selection criteria. DOT is committed to ensuring that historically overburdened and underserved communities in urban and rural areas benefit from access to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law’s (BIL) generational investment in the Nation’s infrastructure and created a performance measure to help advance that goal.
