"The FY 2006 Intercity Passenger Rail Security Grant Program (IPRSGP) is an important component of the Administration's larger, coordinated effort to strengthen the security of America's critical infrastructure. This program implements the objectives addressed in a series of laws, strategy documents, plans and Homeland Security Presidential Directives (HSPDs) outlined in Figure 1. Of particular significance are the National Preparedness Goal (the Goal) and its associated work products, the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP) and the National Strategy for Transportation Security (NSTS). Through its focus on regional planning, infrastructure protection, improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and other non-conventional methods of attack, as well as training and exercises, the FY 2006 IPRSGP directly addresses six of the seven National Priorities: 1) expanded regional collaboration; 2) implementing the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and National Response Plan (NRP); 3) implementing the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP); 4) strengthening information sharing and collaboration capabilities; 5) enhancing interoperable communications capabilities; and, 6) strengthening chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive (CBRNE) detection and response capabilities. In addition, the FY 2006 IPRSGP also supports strengthening emergency operations planning and citizen protection capabilities and assists in addressing security priorities specific to intercity passenger rail service."
