FRA Accepting CRISI Grant Applications

The Federal Railroad Administration has issued a notice of funding opportunity for more than $244 million in grant funding under the Consolidated Rail Infrastructure and Safety Improvements program.

The grants can be used to help fund projects that increase rail transportation safety, efficiency and reliability, FRA officials said in a news release.

Eligible applications will include projects that address congestion challenges,highway-rail grade crossings, upgrade short-line railroad infrastructure, relocate rail lines, improve intercity passenger rail capital assets, and deploy railroad safety technology.

Freight- and passenger-rail infrastructure projects are eligible to apply.

At least 25 percent of the available funds will be reserved for projects in rural areas.

Preference will be given to projects where the proposed federal share of total costs does not exceed 50 percent.
