Follow the Funding: Navigating the Competitive Grant Process
On July 13, 2023, Shant Boyajian moderated an important discussion for the Coalition For America’s Gateways & Trade Corridors (CAGTC) on the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law that is creating unprecedented competitive grant opportunities for freight infrastructure projects. This spring, CAGTC polled its membership to understand their experiences applying for and receiving grants under the BIL. This session explored in detail the members’ insights for their success in the process.
The Coalition for America’s Gateways and Trade Corridors (CAGTC) was established to bring national attention to the need to significantly expand U.S. freight transportation capabilities and to work toward solutions for this growing national challenge. Their sole purpose is to raise public recognition and Congressional awareness of this need and to promote sufficient funding in federal legislation for trade corridors, gateways, intermodal connectors and freight facilities.
