Application Deadline Extended for Rail Infrastructure & Safety Improvement Grants

"These CRISI grants will help make rail systems safer and more efficient for local communities throughout the country," said FRA Administrator Ronald L. Batory.

The Federal Railroad Administration recently extended the application deadline for the Consolidated Rail Infrastructure and Safety Improvements (CRISI) Program, which includes more than $318 million in grant funding from the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2018. The extension was granted because of Hurricane Florence; the new deadline is 5 p.m. Eastern time on Oct. 12.

"The Notice of Funding Opportunity for the Consolidated Rail Infrastructure & Safety Improvements grant program seeks to collaborate with private, state, and local investments to boost much-needed rail projects across the country, and we hope interested parties will apply by the stated deadline," said U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao.

The CRISI grant program directs much-needed investment to rural America. By directing at least 25 percent of available funds toward rural communities, DOT is able to safely connect and upgrade rural America's rail infrastructure. In addition, selection preference will be given to projects with a 50 percent non-federal funding match from any combination of private, state, or local funds, and DOT will consider how well the project aligns with key departmental objectives, including supporting economic vitality; leveraging federal funding; preparing for life-cycle costs; using innovative approaches to improve safety and expedite project delivery; and holding grant recipients accountable for achieving specific, measurable outcomes.

"These CRISI grants will help make rail systems safer and more efficient for local communities throughout the country," said FRA Administrator Ronald L. Batory.
