Trump admin moving to end transit construction program and TIGER immediately

The current Administration at the White House has decided to ask Congress to reduce funding to cut funding for transit lines in any cities, including cities like Ft. Lauderdale, Tempe and many others. It is also planning on eliminating the TIGER grant program. What’s ironic is that Trump has been promising major spending and revamp on infrastructure. The government is calling for a more local funding for these projects. This will result in a $400 million dollar cut in the current fiscal year.

Key Takeaways:

  • New documents released this week by the Trump administration make it clear that 2018 won’t be soon enough to eliminate funding for future transit construction.
  • We’re looking for national, state and local organizations to demonstrate their support for fully funded TIGER and transit Capital Investment Programs.
  • And despite the administration’s belief that localities should fund these localized projects.

“New documents released this week by the Trump administration make it clear that 2018 won’t be soon enough to eliminate funding for future transit construction and TIGER competitive grants — they want them gone now, in 2017.”
