US Transportation Secretary, Pete Buttigieg, announces $12.6 million in grants to the Department’s Maritime Administration (MARAD) to support nine marine highway projects across the US to help alleviate supply chain congestion, enhance the movement of goods along navigable waterways, and expand existing waterborne freight services. The added support to America’s Marine Highway Program (AMHP) is part of the Biden-Harris Port Action Plan to deliver near-term actions to address supply chain disruptions by helping to increase Federal flexibilities for port grants; accelerate port infrastructure grant awards; initiate new construction projects for coastal navigation, inland waterways, and land ports of entry; and launch the first round of expanded port infrastructure grants funded through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.
