Appendix C TIGER 2013 NOFA

      As applicants develop their applications, there are some guidelines on project readiness that they should consider. The TIGER Discretionary Grant funds are available for a limited period of time (DOT’s ability to obligate the funds expires on September 30, 2014), and DOT may be unable to obligate the TIGER Discretionary Grant funds to a project if certain milestones and approvals have not yet been completed. Because of this deadline for obligation, it is important that the application package include concrete evidence of project milestones achieved and remaining, financial capacity and commitment in order to support project readiness.

Appendix A TIGER 2013 NOFA

Each applicant should provide evidence that the expected benefits of the project justify the costs (recognizing that some costs and benefits are difficult to quantify). If it is clear that the benefits do not justify the costs, the Department will not award a TIGER Discretionary Grant to the project. Benefits include the extent to which residents of the United States as a whole are made better off as a result of the project.
