Join us tomorrow as the United States Department of Transportation announces the details of the $10 million TIGER grant awarded to the City of Birmingham. On Friday, June 22, Congresswoman Terri Sewell will join Birmingham Mayor William Bell and the Department of Transportation to announce a $10 million that will fund the “Roads to Recovery Project” as part of the Red Rock Ridge & Valley Trail System.
We are proud to have spearheaded the collaborative public-private partnership that came together to show support and provide local match in submitting this proposal. This powerful partnership is an example of what can happen when our community comes together to move our city forward. We are looking forward to seeing the exciting developments with these projects and furthering the work of the Freshwater Land Trust and the Red Rock Ridge & Valley Trail System.
Because of the Freshwater Land Trust’s wonderful individual donors and members, we are able to initiate projects like this. We hope you will join us tomorrow to celebrate everything this community has accomplished in receiving this grant funding. Below is more information about the press conference:
