Federal Railroad Administration to offer $362 million in grants

Capitol Corridor

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Railroad Administration announced it will make nearly $362 million available through its Consolidated Rail Infrastructure and Safety Improvements grant program.

The funds will go to projects that reduce congestion, improve short-line and regional railroad infrastructure, relocate rail lines, enhance multi-modal connections and facilitate service integration between rail and other modes such as at ports or intermodal facilities.

The grants will help build resilience across America’s supply chains, in support of the Biden-Harris Administration’s ongoing Supply Chain Disruptions Task Force.
