How to Make the Most of the Federal TIFIA Loan Program For Transit and TOD Projects

The greatly expanded federal Transportation Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (TIFIA) program under the recently enacted MAP-21 (Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act) can provide more than $17 billion in loans to eligible projects. Equally important, MAP-21 includes several key technical changes that will make it easier for transit projects to access this program and secure funding. However, time is of the essence.

On Oct. 24 from 1 to 2:30pm ET, Transportation for America will hold a free webinar to explain how transit agencies can get the most out of the program for transit and TOD projects. 

The TIFIA program provides direct loans, loan guarantees, and standby lines of credit to eligible surface transportation projects, including transit, highway, bridge, ITS, port access, freight intermodal facilities, intercity bus and passenger rail rolling stock and facilities (including AMTRAK), and transit-oriented development infrastructure. Demand for TIFIA financing is high and the new rolling application process means agencies should act quickly before USDOT fully obligates all TIFIA financing.

Webinar Speakers include:

  • James Corless: Director, Transportation for America
  • Kevin DeGood: Deputy Policy Director, Transportation for America
  • Tina Votaw: Transit Oriented Development Specialist, Charlotte CATS
  • Pres Kabacoff: Co-Chairman of the Board of Directors & Chief Executive Officer, HRI Properties
  • Richard Allen: Financial Project Manager, HRI Properties
