EBP is here to help as our team has a proven track record for providing benefit-cost and economic impact analysis, along with technical advisory services on winning applications for the US Department of Transportation's (USDOT's) various infrastructure grant programs.
This year’s grants prioritize transportation projects that provide benefits to mobility, accessibility, economic growth, safety, environmental justice, and racial equity.
Project specifications and funding constraints include:
- Large projects must be at least $25 million and small projects must be at least $5 million,
- Large projects need to be “shovel ready” within 18 months of the award,
- There is only $146 million left to be allocated for non-highway (rail, water, intermodal) freight projects,
- 25% of awards must be dedicated to rural areas,
- INFRA can only cover up to 60% of the total project cost, with a cap of 80% on federal funding, and
- INFRA Extra Initiative provides qualifying INFRA applicants the opportunity to apply for TIFIA Credit Assistance for up to 49% of eligible project costs.
Our team of consultants at EBP have years of experience in providing successful consultation on transportation grant applications, from performing the required benefit-cost analysis to preparing the application. Some of our recent, prior application experience includes:
