Federal Funding Handbook for Marine Transportation System Infrastructure   [open pdf - 905KB]

"The CMTS [Committee on the Marine Transportation System] developed this 'Federal Funding Handbook for Marine Transportation System Infrastructure' as a resource for public and private stakeholders. It can be challenging to navigate the myriad of Federal programs available to State and local governments; federally-recognized Indian tribal governments; Territories of the U.S; domestic public, quasi-public and private profit and nonprofit organizations and institutions; specialized groups; and individuals. The purpose of this Handbook is to serve as a value-added tool for local and non-Federal level practitioners as well as Federal stakeholders. To that end, this Handbook contains more than 85 currently authorized Federal multimodal transportation infrastructure funding, financing, and technical assistance programs for infrastructure in the Marine Transportation System (MTS) through fiscal year (FY) 2018. The programs included in this Handbook reflect the diversity of the MTS. As described in the previous section, the MTS consists of waterways, ports, and inter-modal land-side connections that allow the various modes of transportation to move people and goods to, from, and on the water. The MTS also includes the infrastructure, both physical and technological (including cyber infrastructure), that aid in the movement of people and goods."
