Rep. Hansen Clarke Secures $10 million Federal Grant for the LINK Detroit! Project


Location: Unknown

"I am delighted to announce that the Link Detroit! project has been awarded $10 million from the TIGER Discretionary Grants Program of the U.S. Department of Transportation. The Link Detroit! Project will create jobs and provide better transportation options for metro Detroit residents.

I firmly believe that affordable and reliable transportation is essential to a vibrant metro Detroit. That is why I am a champion of the Link Detroit! project and the TIGER grant program. Last year, I urged Secretary LaHood to support the Link Detroit! project and I sincerely thank him for his work on behalf of metro Detroit. I also requested funding for the TIGER grant program in fiscal year 2013, and I am an original cosponsor of the TIGER Grants for Job Creation Act. The Link Detroit! project is a crucial step toward a more sustainable and livable community."

The TIGER Grants for Job Creation Act was introduced yesterday as HR 5976. Rep. Hansen Clarke is an original cosponsor.
