Applications to the U.S. Department of Transportation for TIGER (Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery) 2013 grants totaled more than $9 billion, far exceeding the $474 million set aside for the program, a press release from the USDOT says. The Department received 568 applications from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam and American Samoa.

None of those applications came from the jurisdictions within Spokane County, as far as I know. We have gotten two TIGER grants for the North Spokane Corridor in the past though.
TIGER 2013 grants are for capital investments in surface transportation infrastructure and will be awarded on a competitive basis. This is the fifth round of TIGER funding. The previous four rounds of the TIGER program provided $3.1 billion to 218 projects in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. During the previous four rounds, the Department of Transportation received more than 4,050 applications requesting more than $105.2 billion for transportation projects across the country.
