PennDOT Accepting Applications for Rail Grants

Applications are being accepted for Pennsylvania’s 2019 Rail Transportation Assistance and the Rail Freight Assistance programs.

Eligible organizations — including freight railroads, freight railroad-served shippers and economic development entities — may apply for funding through either program through the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.

Applications will be accepted Aug. 30.

In 2018, PennDOT awarded $23 million for 27 freight-rail projects.

The state ranks first in the country in the number of operating railroads, with 65, and ranks near the top in total track mileage, with more than 5,600 miles.
