FY 2011 Intercity Bus Security Grant Program

Main Content

Total Funding Available in FY 2011: $4,990,000

Purpose:  Intercity Bus Security Grant Program (IBSGP) provides funding to create a sustainable program for the protection of intercity bus systems and the traveling public from terrorism. The program seeks to assist operators of fixed-route intercity and charter bus services in obtaining the resources required to support security measures such as enhanced planning, facility security upgrades and vehicle and driver protection.

Eligible Applicants:  Eligible applicants under the FY 2011 IBSGP are owners and operators of fixed route intercity and charter buses that serve UASI jurisdictions.  Charter companies must make a minimum of 50 trips annually to one or more UASI jurisdictions to be eligible. The Tier I/Tier II designation used in prior years is not being used for FY 2011 applicants; all owner/operators that meet the basic eligibility criteria may apply.

Program Awards:  Bus companies will compete for funds irrespective of their size and without the use of a tier system.  Recipients will be selected through a competitive process based on the ratings of the National Review Panel.

FY 2011 IBSGP has a 75 percent (75%) federal and 25 percent (25%) grantee cost match (cash- or in-kind) requirement.
