Let's BUILD the Greenway

Congratulations to all of the agencies and municipalities that submitted BUILD grants in July 2018. 

Funding from 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 could spur the planning, design, and/or construction of more than 200 miles of East Coast Greenway in seven states, Massachusetts to Florida.
