Purpose: Freight Rail Security Grant Program (FRSGP) provides funding to freight railroad carriers, owners and offerors of railroad cars, and owners of rail bridges to protect critical surface transportation infrastructure from acts of terrorism, major disasters, and other emergencies. 

Eligible Applicants:  Eligible applicants for the FY 2011 FRSGP are determined by the Department of Homeland Security as Class I, II, and III freight railroad carriers that transport Rail Security-Sensitive Materials, owners and offerors of railroad cars that transport toxic inhalation hazardous materials, and owners of rail bridges that have a volume exceeding 4.9 MGTM. For purposes of this grant program, “offerors” are entities that lease rail cars in order to ship TIH materials by railroad.  

Program Awards:  FY 2011 FRSGP funds will be allocated competitively based on their ability to deliver protection to underground rail and other high-risk assets, provide counter-terrorism training, or develop security plans and vulnerability assessments.

FY 2011 FRSGP has a 75 percent (75%) federal and 25 percent (25%) grantee cost match (cash- or in-kind) requirement. Vulnerability assessments and security plans are exempt from this cost match requirement.
