Illinois commission to help fund rail safety education, enforcement programs


The Illinois Commerce Commission’s (ICC) Railroad Safety Section recently issued a request for grant proposals for local railroad safety education and enforcement programs. The ICC recently received a Federal Railroad Administration grant to continue working with local communities and railroads in Illinois to implement railroad safety education or enforcement programs.

The commission is encouraging interested communities to submit a proposal describing rail safety concerns in their area, proposed education and/or enforcement activities, and a requested grant amount. The ICC will accept proposals until Nov. 1.

Proposals selected for funding will be announced on or after Dec. 1; grants will be awarded for projects to be implemented between Jan. 1, 2011, and Dec. 31, 2011, the ICC said.
