On behalf of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Deputy Assistant Secretary for Research and Technology Dr. Robert Hampshire and the Departmental Civil Rights Director Irene Marion, we would like to thank you for participating in the “Equity in Transportation Research and Funding Opportunities” webinar held Thursday, June 23rd. This webinar was part of a larger strategic initiative and series of events from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Interagency Working Group Event with the White House Initiative for Historically Black Colleges & Universities to delve into varying parts of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. Under the Biden-Harris Administration, we are committed to building a better, more equitable transportation system.
