U.S. Department of Transportation Infrastructure For Rebuilding America (INFRA) Program
The Infrastructure for Rebuilding America (INFRA) grant funding program exists to provide federal funding support to nationally or regionally significant highway and freight projects. In reviewing grant applications, the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) prioritizes projects that support economic vitality, promote or deploy innovation, allow federal funding to be leveraged in attracting private investment, and support accountability. For the first time, however, in 2021 USDOT also began prioritizing projects that promote racial equity, and those that address climate change and environmental justice.
