Pilot Program for Rural and Tribal Infrastructure Launches

Transportation Department makes funding available for five years of technical assistance and advising.

The Department of Transportation has launched a new pilot program that offers funding for project advisors and personnel for rural and Tribal infrastructure projects. The Rural and Tribal Assistance Pilot Program will make $10 million available to provide rural infrastructure projects with funding for the next five years, allowing them to hire experts that can provide necessary construction designs, environmental reviews, financial analysis, and more.

“In order to make the most of our historic infrastructure investments, we must ensure they reach every community, including the rural and tribal communities that are too often left behind by federal investments,” said Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. “This program will help provide rural and tribal communities the resources they need to seek—and win—federal grants, so they can realize their visions for better infrastructure.”  

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Buttigieg as he oversees programs to fund infrastructure projects.
  • For U.S. transportation officials as they determine which projects will receive funding.
  • For rural and tribal leaders as they participate in the infrastructure program.
