"The FY 2009 transportation infrastructure security programs contain significant improvements based upon extensive outreach to stakeholders. In addition, the risk assessments that form the basis for eligibility under these programs were slightly refined to conform to the final provisions of the 9/11 Act. The DHS transportation infrastructure security programs are designed to strengthen the nation's ability to protect critical infrastructure facilities and transit systems. There are six different grant programs: Transit Security Grant Program (TSGP); Freight Rail Security Grant Program (FRSGP); Intercity Passenger Rail (Amtrak); Port Security Grant Program (PSGP); Intercity Bus Security Grant Program (IBSGP); and the Trucking Security Program (TSP). Together, these grants fund a range of preparedness activities, including strengthening infrastructure against explosive attacks, preparedness, planning, equipment purchase, training, exercises, security management and administration costs. Transportation infrastructure security grants support objectives outlined in post-9/11 laws, strategy documents, plans, Executive Orders, Homeland Security Presidential Directives, the National Preparedness Guidelines and associated work products, including the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP) and its transportation sector-specific plans and Executive Order 13416 (Strengthening Surface Transportation Security)."
