Grants Programs 2010
The TSGP is one of five grant programs that constitute the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Fiscal Year (FY) 2010 transportation infrastructure security activities. These grant programs are part of a comprehensive set of measures authorized by Congress and implemented by the Administration to help strengthen the nation’s critical infrastructure against risks associated with potential terrorist attacks. The TSGP is an important component of the Department’s effort to enhance the security of the Nation’s critical infrastructure. The program provides funds to owners and operators of transit systems (which include intracity bus, commuter bus, ferries and all forms of passenger rail) to protect critical surface transportation infrastructure and the traveling public from acts of terrorism, major disasters, and other emergencies. The FY 2010 TSGP is authorized by section 1406 of the Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007 (Public Law 110-53) (the 9/11 Act)and the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act, 2010 (Public Law 111-83)
