About the TIGER Project
In July 2016, Cleveland Metroparks was announced as a winner of $7.950 million for its Re-Connecting Cleveland: Pathways to Opportunity grant application in the highly competitive Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grant program through the US Department of Transportation. Submitted in partnership with The Trust for Public Land and LAND studio, TIGER funds are being used to construct five trail projects totaling over four miles, including a new bridge, to fill critical gaps in the active transportation network in the city of Cleveland.
