Rail Freight Assistance Program
The Rail Freight Assistance Program (RFAP) provides financial assistance for investment in rail freight infrastructure. The intent of the Program is to (1) preserve essential rail freight service where economically feasible, and (2) preserve or stimulate economic development through the generation of new or expanded rail freight service.
The Rail Transportation Assistance Program (Rail TAP), otherwise known as Capital Budget, is available to those having a line item in the current Capital Budget Bill. For those who do not have a line item, please contact your local representative or senator to secure a line item.
For more details, and instructions for how to apply, go to PennDOT's Rail Freight Funding Programs page.
