TIGER Funding Announcement

Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood signs a $50 million check for TIGER funding

Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood visited Kansas City Wednesday to announce $1.5 billion in TIGER (Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery) grants across the nation — including $50 million for the Kansas City region, with a portion going to projects in the Green Impact Zone.

The grants are funded by federal stimulus dollars as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. MARC coordinated a regional grant application for the TIGER funds. Partners included the city of Kansas City, Mo.; Johnson and Wyandotte counties in Kansas; the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority; and others.
