INFRA Transportation Discretionary Grants  


MDOT, Federal DOT, and INFRA Grant Logos


The INFRA Grants program provides dedicated, discretionary funding for projects that address critical issues facing our nation’s highways and bridges. INFRA grants will support the Administration’s commitment to fixing our nation’s crumbling infrastructure by creating opportunities for all levels of government and the private sector to fund infrastructure, using innovative approaches to improve the necessary processes for building significant projects, and increasing accountability for the projects that are built.

For additional information on the INFRA program, please visit the INFRA Grants website from US DOT.

On March 19, 2021, the Maryland Department of Transportation in partnership with Washington County submitted an application for I-81/Halfway Boulevard Freight Connections Making Way for Economic Growth and Safety Project.

MDOT has submitted applications previously through the US DOT's Better Utilizing Infrastructure for Leveraging Development (BUILD) Discretionary Grants, previously known as the Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery, or TIGER Discretionary Grants.
