FRA Offers $73 Million in Rail Support Grants

FRA is accepting applications for $73 million in grant funding for projects that can strengthen intercity passenger rail, support capital projects and boost safety initiatives that may include PTC implementation, improved highway-rail grade crossings and congestion mitigation.

A portion of these funds may be made available to commuter railroads on a competitive basis for improvements to corridors they share with Amtrak or freight railroads. Commuter rail agencies should review the eligibility sections of these funding opportunities to ensure applications are relevant to the correct programs.

The funding, being made ­available through new grant programs, is authorized by the FAST Act and funded through the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017. Funds will be dispersed through the Consolidated Rail Infrastructure and Safety Improvements (CRISI) and Restoration and Enhancement Grants (R&E) programs.

The notices of funding opportunity were published Feb. 21 in the Federal ­Register. The application deadlines are June 21 for CRISI and May 22 for R&E.

To see the notices of funding opportunities, click here for CRISI or here for R&E. For questions, contact Adam Schildge.
