The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) appropriated $8 billion for high and conventional speed passenger rail. The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) was responsible for soliciting applications, evaluating them to determine program eligibility and technical merits, and selecting awards, which were announced in January 2010. This report examines the extent to which FRA: (1) applied its established criteria to select projects; (2) followed recommended practices for awarding discretionary grants; and (3) communicated outcomes to the public, compared with selected other Recovery Act competitive grant programs. Includes recommendations. Charts and tables. This is a print on demand report.
