Thank you to everyone who participated in the Sustainable Communities Network’s recent webinar, “TIGER Grants and Rural America, Part 2.” The webinar was the result of a collaborative effort between Smart Growth America, Reconnecting America, the National Association of Development Organizations, Policy Link, the American Public Transportation Association, the National League of Cities, Rural Assembly, and Transportation for America to provide rural communities with the necessary tools and technical assistance to help advance superior TIGER projects.
Materials from last week’s webinar are now available online. The webinar includes strategies and lessons on how to submit competitive TIGER applications, with tips from both the funding agency as well grant writers and political leaders who have brought millions of dollars to their own communities. Learn what distinguishes an outstanding grant application from all other eligible applications and understand how to write a successful TIGER grant. Gain in-depth knowledge on what is needed to conduct a Benefit-Cost Analysis, an integral part of the TIGER application. Become familiar with the selection criteria and learn how to successfully position your project with regional partnerships. And for prospective applicants, learn about next steps and where to get additional resources and help.
