U.S. DOT Webinar on Preparing for Upcoming Discretionary Grant Opportunities
On February 8, 2023, from 3:00-4:00 p.m. EST, you are invited to join leaders from across DOT – including FRA Administrator Amit Bose and senior officials from FTA and the Office of the Secretary – in a webinar designed to highlight several resources created to help potential grant applicants navigate different U.S. DOT funding opportunities. This session will explore the tools available on the DOT Navigator, the Department's one-stop-shop for technical assistance, including: the upcoming funding opportunity calendar; tools for identifying federal disadvantaged community areas; and discerning which programs offer non-Federal-match flexibility. The session will also spotlight several funding opportunities at U.S. DOT that are currently accepting applications to expand transportation opportunities to urban, rural, and Tribal communities.
The session is free of charge but registration is required.
