Shea-Porter Statement on Unsuccessful Bid for TIGER Discretionary Grant Funding

WASHINGTON, DC  Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter released the following statement regarding the announcement that New Hampshire was unsuccessful in obtaining $70 million in federal Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) discretionary grant funding:

“I was extremely disappointed with the news from the U.S. Department of Transportation today.  This TIGER grant funding would have provided much-needed funds to improve the transportation infrastructure for the Seacoast.   I will continue to work with New Hampshire DOT to press for any possible federal assistance for this critical project.”
