Federal Investment in Passenger and Freight Rail

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021 (IIJA) was a major victory for RSI, providing funding for a broad range of physical infrastructure on top of a five-year reauthorization of expiring traditional surface-transportation infrastructure programs for highways, rail, and transit. RSI has been working to educate our members on how they can identify certain programs or departments to assist specific infrastructure projects.

We have provided the links below to the Department of Transportation’s BIF funding dashboard to assist members with these efforts. A list of other helpful resources can be found below:

o Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Funding Dashboard
o Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Information from FRA
o Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Information from FTA
o Download the WH Guidebook and a CSV File with Program Data
o USDOT of NOFO announcements across agencies in 2023 here.
o FRA calendar of upcoming FRA publications with targets for NOFOs, CRISI selections, and more.

RSI continues to follow infrastructure spending, appropriations, tax, and trade issues, and our team is tracking developments closely.
