U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and its agencies address resiliency, economic growth, and climate/sustainability efforts that are aligned with and add value to community and military compatibility planning. DOT agencies focus on a unique aspect of transportation and ensure that the nation's transportation networks operate safely and efficiently. Agencies such as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and the United States Maritime Administration (MARAD) work with the military and communities to address topics such as airspace compatibility, coordinated surface and rail transportation in support of installation operations, and moving equipment, ammunition, and materials around the country. Below are federal transportation and other infrastructure agency grant and funding programs that communities can use in support of military-community compatibility.
