US Secretary Elaine L Chao announced that the Trump Administration will invest USD 900 million in American infrastructure through the Better Utilizing Investments to Leverage Development Transportation Discretionary Grants program. The funding has been awarded to 55 projects in 35 states. Fiscal Year 2019 BUILD Transportation grants are for investments in surface transportation infrastructure and have been awarded on a competitive basis to projects with a significant impact in their local or regional communities. BUILD funding supports roads, bridges, transit, rail, ports or intermodal transportation.

To reflect the Administration’s ongoing effort to rebalance historic underinvestment in rural America, DOT has awarded 50% of BUILD Transportation grant funding to projects located in rural areas. For this round of BUILD grants, the maximum grant award is USD 25 million, and no more than USD 90 million can be awarded to a single State.
