The Maritime Administration of the U.S. Department of Transportation offers many funding opportunities, including grants (PIDG, BUILD, CRISI, PSG and INFRA) and loans (TIFIA and RRIF). They are designed to:
Promote the modernization of and increase capacities at port cargo terminals
Facilitate the acquisition of modern cargo handling equipment that can improve efficiencies in port operations
Reduce the impact of port and terminal related operations on climate and the environment
However, the complexity and competition for infrastructure funding has made it extremely challenging for port authorities and marine terminal operators to gain access to them.
Let Strong Port Strategies be your guide to the latest information on Federal port, terminal and intermodal connector project grants. Our knowledge of Federal policies, programs and assistance opportunities is unmatched.
