OLI Awards Grants to Indiana, Michigan Chapters

Operation Lifesaver chapters in Indiana and Michigan are among those sharing in an award of $217,000 in grants for rail safety education projects in 15 states.

The funds are being provided by the Federal Railroad Administration to OLI chapters to pay for public education and awareness programs that promote rail-crossing safety and trespass prevention.

OLI said the education projects will be promoted as part of OLI’s Rail Safety Week in September.

Other state chapters receiving grants include Arkansas, California, Idaho, Illinois, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin. The grants range in size from $4,700 to $20,000.
