DOT Opens Applications for RAISE Program Grants

Transportation secretary announces equity-improving infrastructure projects eligible for funding.

The Department of Transportation (DOT) has opened applications for $1.5 billion in grant funding through the Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity (RAISE) program. Half of the funding will go toward rural projects, and the other half will go to projects in urban areas. The department has also designated “Areas of Persistent Poverty” and “Historically Disadvantaged Communities,” and these areas are eligible to receive up to 100% of federal cost share for infrastructure projects that apply for RAISE grants.

“After decades of underinvestment in America’s infrastructure, we are supporting projects that help people and goods get where they need to go more safely, efficiently, and affordably,” said Secretary Pete Buttigieg.“ The historic investments the Biden-Harris Administration is announcing today will help communities across the country modernize their transportation.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Buttigieg as he oversees the awarding of grants under the RAISE Program.
  • For U.S. transportation officials as they support infrastructure projects.
  • For the president and his administration as they support equity initiatives.
