About Port Infrastructure Development Grants

The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2020 (NDAA) (Pub. L. No. 116-92, December 20, 2019) and the Further Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020 (the Act) (Pub. L. No. 116-94, December 20, 2019) authorized and appropriated $225 million for the Port Infrastructure Development Program (PIDP) to make grants to improve facilities within, connecting to, out of, or around coastal seaports, inland river ports and Great Lakes ports. The Act directed that at least $200 million of the appropriated funds were reserved for grants to coastal seaports or Great Lakes ports. Funds for the PIDP were awarded as discretionary grants on a competitive basis for projects that improve the safety, efficiency or reliability of the movement of goods into, out of, around or within a port.
