Transportation Department Grants $241 Million for Ports

Seeks to address supply chain issues.

The Department of Transportation has apportioned $241 million to help address the stresses on the national supply chain. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg recently announced that the funds would be available for 25 projects across 19 states for seaport improvements. This funding will double to $450 million for the next five years to allow ports to modernize and address bottlenecks.

Secretary Buttigieg stated, “U.S. maritime ports play a critical role in our supply chains. These investments in our nation’s ports will help support American jobs, efficient and resilient operations, and faster delivery of goods to the American people.” The president’s administration will continue to allot funds from the recently passed infrastructure bill to improve the supply chain. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For officials in the Transportation Department as they work to strengthen the supply chain.
  • That Secretary Buttigieg would have wisdom as he leads the Transportation Department.
  • For the president’s administration to be discerning as they address economic difficulties.
