Title: Notice of Funding Availability and Solicitation of Applications for Grants under the Railroad Safety Technology Grant Program. OMB Control Number: 2130–0587. Type of Request: Regular Approval of an Emergency Clearance. Affected Public: 40 Railroads. Abstract: The Rail Safety Technology Program is a newly authorized program under the Rail Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (RSIA) (Pub. L. 110–432; October 16, 2008). The program was directed by Congress and passed into law in the aftermath of a series of major rail accidents that culminated in an accident at Chatsworth, California, in 2008. Twenty-five people were killed and 135 people were injured in the Chatsworth accident. This event turned the Nation’s attention to rail safety and the possibility that new technologies, such as PTC, could prevent such accidents in the future. The RSIA ordered installation of PTC by all Class I railroads on any of their mainlines carrying poisonous inhalation hazard (PIH) materials and by all passenger and commuter railroads on their main lines not later than December 31, 2015. As part of the RSIA, Congress provided $50 million to FRA to award, in one or more grants, to eligible projects by passenger and freight rail carriers, railroad suppliers, and State and local Governments. Funds will be awarded to projects that have a public benefit of improved railroad safety and efficiency, with priority given to VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:27 Jun 04, 2010 Jkt 220001 projects that make PTC technologies interoperable between railroad systems; projects that accelerate the deployment of PTC technology on high-risk corridors, such as those that have high volumes of hazardous material shipments; and for projects over which commuter or passenger trains operate, or that benefit both passenger and freight safety and efficiency. Funds provided under this grant program may constitute a maximum of 80 percent of the total cost of a selected project, with a minimum of 20 percent of costs funded from other sources. The funding provided under these grants will be made available to grantees on a reimbursement basis. FRA anticipates awarding grants to multiple eligible participants. FRA may choose to award a grant or grants within the available funds in any amount. Funding made available through grants provided under this program, together with funding from other sources that is committed by a grantee as part of a grant agreement, must be sufficient to complete the funded project and achieve the anticipated technology development. FRA began accepting grant applications 10 days after publication of the Notice of Funds Availability, which was published on March 29, 2010, in the Federal Register detailing the terms of the Railroad Safety Technology Grant Program. Applications may be submitted until July 1, 2010. Selection announcements will be made on or around September 3, 2010. Form Number(s): FRA F 6180.146; SF–269; SF–270.

    Abstract: The Rail Safety Technology Program is a newly authorized 
program under the Rail Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (RSIA) (Pub. L. 
110-432; October 16, 2008). The program was directed by Congress and 
passed into law in the aftermath of a series of major rail accidents 
that culminated in an accident at Chatsworth, California, in 2008. 
Twenty-five people were killed and 135 people were injured in the 
Chatsworth accident. This event turned the Nation's attention to rail 
safety and the possibility that new technologies, such as PTC, could 
prevent such accidents in the future. The RSIA ordered installation of 
PTC by all Class I railroads on any of their mainlines carrying 
poisonous inhalation hazard (PIH) materials and by all passenger and 
commuter railroads on their main lines not later than December 31, 
2015.
    As part of the RSIA, Congress provided $50 million to FRA to award, 
in one or more grants, to eligible projects by passenger and freight 
rail carriers, railroad suppliers, and State and local Governments. 
Funds will be awarded to projects that have a public benefit of 
improved railroad safety and efficiency, with priority given to 
projects that make PTC technologies interoperable between railroad 
systems; projects that accelerate the deployment of PTC technology on 
high-risk corridors, such as those that have high volumes of hazardous

    Funds provided under this grant program may constitute a maximum of 
80 percent of the total cost of a selected project, with a minimum of

under these grants will be made available to grantees on a

grants provided under this program, together with funding from other
