Transit Security Grant Program

Transit Security Grant Program FY 2014

The Transit Security Grant Program (TSGP) is one of the grant programs that directly support transportation infrastructure security activities. TSGP is one tool in the comprehensive set of measures authorized by Congress and implemented by the Administration to strengthen the Nation’s critical infrastructure against risks associated with potential terrorist attacks. TSGP provides funds to owners and operators of transit systems (which include intra-city bus, commuter bus, ferries, and all forms of passenger rail) to protect critical surface transportation infrastructure and the traveling public from acts of terrorism and to increase the resilience of transit infrastructure.

The FY 2014 TSGP was initially authorized in Section 1406 of the Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007, Public Law 110-53 (6 U.S.C. 1135) and is currently funded under Public Law No: 113-76, H.R.3547 – Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2014.
