Additional Information on Eligibility:
Under TIGGER, only public transportation agencies, Federally recognized Tribes or State DOTs may apply. A public transportation agency may apply for one or multiple projects in one proposal. Likewise, public transportation agencies working in a consortium to meet the
minimum funding threshold may also submit a proposal detailing individual projects. Additionally, a State DOT may submit a consolidated proposal for multiple projects from one or more transit agencies in order to meet the $1,000,000 threshold. Consolidated proposals from either State DOTs or agency consortia must contain individual project level information, as described in Section 5 Application Content, for each project included in the consolidated proposal. Grant awards will be made for a particular project directly to public transportation agencies, Tribes, or State Departments of Transportation on behalf of a public transportation agency.
Please see details in FR Notice Pages 37175 - 37184 [FR DOC # 2011-15913] http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2011-06-24/pdf/2011-15913.pdf
DOT/Federal Transit Administration
There are two eligible purposes for TIGGER grants: (1) For capital investments that will assist in reducing the energy consumption of a
transit system; or (2) for capital investments that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions of a public transportation system. Project
proposals may be submitted under either or both categories. FTA has established a range of funding that will be considered for approval.
Each submitted proposal must request a minimum of $1,000,000 and must not exceed a maximum of $15,000,000. Proposals that include projects
less than $1,000,000 may be applied for if they are part of a consolidated proposal submitted by the State Department of Transportation (State DOT) or a consortium of smaller agencies working
in tangent that, in total, meets or exceeds the $1,000,000 threshold. FTA may decide to provide only partial funding for certain proposals to
maximize the impact of this program. Detailed budget proposals and a minimum value needed to achieve project results are expected in all
proposals. FTA encourages applicants with projects that are not technologically innovative, or which do not meet these funding
thresholds to apply under the Clean Fuels program which has simpler application criteria.
