FRA Has Mag-Lev Grant Funds Available

October 30, 2019

The Federal Railroad Administration has published a notice of grant funding opportunity for magnetic levitation deployment projects.

The notice, which was published in the Federal Register, provided information about how to seek $24 million in grant funding for eligible projects under the federal Magnetic Levitation Technology Deployment Program.

That includes $10 million appropriated by Congress in 2019 and an additional $14 million in funds authorized by Congress in 2008 under sections of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act, known by the acronym SAFETEA-LU.

Applicants for the $14 million in funding must be focused on projects in Pittsburgh, and  Baltimore-Washington and Atlanta-Chattanooga corridors.
The $10 million in grants funds are not limited to those three maglev projects.
