FRA Issues Funding Notice for PTC Systems Grants
Applications are Due This Summer!

 

The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) issued a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) on May 15 for positive train control (PTC) systems grants through the FY 2018 Consolidated Rail Infrastructure and Safety Improvements (CRISI) Program.

The due date for funding applications is 45 days from the NOFO’s publication in the Federal Register. Eligible projects include back office systems; wayside, communications, and onboard hardware equipment; software; equipment installation; spectrum; any component, testing and training for the implementation of PTC systems; and interoperability.

ASLRRA has scheduled a webinar to discuss the NOFO and guide members on the application process.  

Also on May 15, FRA released the first quarter status update on railroads’ self-reported progress toward implementing PTC systems. Click here to view more implementation data for 2018 Quarter 1 or to view individual railroads’ PTC annual and quarterly reports.
