DOT Rural Transportation Resources

It can be difficult for rural communities to provide needed matches for DOT grants or to marshal resources to develop complex grant applications.  That is why DOT is working to address these needs through its TIFIA credit programs with the Rural Project Initiative, and increasing funding allocation to rural projects in the BUILD and INFRA discretionary grant programs.  Dozens of other vital DOT’s discretionary grant programs are available for rural project sponsors to apply for, to help our Nation meet transportation goals of safety and economic competitiveness.

DOT has a variety of programs and resources relating to rural transportation.
