Department of Transportation Launches Port Infrastructure Development Program

Department of Transportation Launches Port Infrastructure Development Program

The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) is accepting applications for $292.7 million in discretionary grant funding through the new Port Infrastructure Development Program. The program aims to support public coastal ports by improving the safety, efficiency, or reliability of goods movement into, out of, or within a port.

“This major investment in the Port Infrastructure Development Program will help strengthen, modernize, and improve our country’s maritime systems and gateway ports,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao.

Investments in port transportation infrastructure will be awarded on a competitive basis for projects located either within the boundary of a coastal seaport, or outside the boundary but directly relating to port operations or to an intermodal connection to a port.

DOT will host a series of webinars during the Port Infrastructure Development Program grant application process. Details and registration information regarding these webinars will be made available here.

The deadline to submit an application for the Port Infrastructure Development Program is September 22, 2019. For more information, click here.
