Register Now! May 22 USDOT Webinar on Discretionary Grant Opportunities

On May 22 The US Department of Transportation will be hosting a webinar on “Identifying Discretionary Grant Opportunities”. 

Join speakers from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Rural Opportunities to Use Transportation for Economic Success (ROUTES) Initiative and the Secretary’s Office for a webinar on May 22 from 4:00-5:00 p.m. EDT to learn more about how to identify and respond to Federal transportation grant opportunities. The webinar will showcase the USDOT Discretionary Grants Dashboard, a new tool that makes it easier to search for and find grant opportunities depending on the type of project you have, your organization type, and other considerations like match requirements. Rural, tribal, and local governments will find this an especially helpful tool. The webinar will also highlight the FHWA’s Wildlife Crossings Program and the PROTECT Program – both of which are currently accepting applications; and other new resources available on the USDOT Navigator. This webinar is free to attend but registration is required – register here.

Scheduled speakers include:

  • Christopher Coes, Assistant Secretary for Transportation Policy
  • Michael Close, ROUTES Initiative
  • Coral Torres Cruz, FHWA
  • Mariia Zimmerman, Office of the Secretary
