This summer is a moment of opportunity for the Greenway to take a significant leap forward.
The federal TIGER program (Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery), now re-branded as BUILD (Better Utilizing Investments to Leverage Development), tripled to $1.5 billion this year. These funds can spur construction of many miles of greenway in our 450 communities from Maine to Florida. We have 10 weeks to submit innovative proposals for the July 19th deadline from throughout our rural corridors and urban centers.
See below for helpful tools such as webinars and contacts for this campaign.
