Corridor Identification and Development Program

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, signed into law in November 2021, authorized the Secretary of Transportation to establish the Corridor ID Program to facilitate the development of intercity passenger rail corridors. The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) conducted outreach in connection with the new Corridor ID Program. FRA published a Request for Information in the Federal Register on February 7, 2022, seeking comments on the Program and how it can best serve stakeholders and the public. In December 2022, the FRA published a Notice of Funding Opportunity to select Corridors for development. For each selected Corridor, FRA will initially award the grantee $500,000 for eligible activities related to the initiation of a grantee’s Corridor development efforts including the development of a scope, schedule, and cost estimate for preparing a service development plan (SDP) for a Corridor.
