FRA seeks apps. for $115M in high-speed grants

This week, the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) will begin accepting applications for $115 million in planning and construction project funds for high-speed intercity passenger rail.

These solicitations will make available $50 million in planning project funds, appropriated under the FY 2010 DOT Appropriations Act, and approximately $65 million in residual construction project funds, appropriated under the FY 2009 DOT Appropriations Act.

"We look forward to working with states to lay the groundwork for their high-speed rail programs and also help other states get specific projects off the ground so that jobs can be created in the near-term," said FRA Administrator Joseph C. Szabo. "These funds supplement the President's initial down payment on high-speed rail and represent a commitment to developing a world-class transportation network."

Applications and proposals for these funds are due by May 19, with selection announcements made during summer 2010.
