Transit Security Grant Program Tier I FY 2008

Grants Programs 2008

In Fiscal Year (FY) 2008, TSGP provided $333.2 million to owners and operators of transit systems (passenger rail, intracity bus, and ferry systems) in Tier I regions. As the highest risk transit regions in the country, Tier I regions receive the vast majority of TSGP funding. Tier I regions are: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, the National Capital Region, New York, Philadelphia, and the San Francisco Bay Area.

DHS works collaboratively with our security partners to implement grant programs that reduce risks to our nation’s transportation systems. Here’s how.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) meets with a Regional Transit Security Working Group (RTSWG) in each region to establish a Cooperative Agreement that identifies projects that will have the greatest security impact based on national priorities.

FY 2008 TSGP priorities include security training of frontline employees, operational deterrence initiatives, drills and exercises, and public awareness programs. The TSGP also funds anti-terrorism measures that help protect underwater/underground infrastructure, high density elevated operations, multi-user high density stations and terminals, and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems.
