Register now for USDOT Webinar on Identifying Discretionary Grant Opportunities 5/22/23

Published on: May 14, 2023


Join speakers from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Rural Opportunities to Use Transportation for Economic Success (ROUTES) Initiative, and the Office of the Secretary for a webinar on Monday, May 22, from 3:00-4:00 p.m. CT to learn more about how to identify and respond to federal transportation grant opportunities, including those available to the transit industry.

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.

Webinar speakers include:

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