DHS Issues Grants for Transit Security

August 30, 2018

More than $88 million in transit security grants have been awarded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in an effort to protecting transit agencies from acts of terrorism and boosting the resilience of transit infrastructure.

The agency also issued a separate $10 million grant to increase the resilience of Amtrak’s system.

The DHS had announced last May the availability of $1.6 billion in grant funding to help prevent acts of terrorism.
