The Consolidated Rail Infrastructure and Safety Improvements (CRISI) program will enhance rail safety, help to undo inequities caused by transportation and land use policies and create new opportunities for underserved communities, provide energy-efficient transportation options to confront the effects of climate change, invest in projects that spur economic growth, and ensure the nation's world-class freight network can meet the mobility demands of a growing population.

Rail safety projects include, but are not limited to, grade crossing enhancements, rail line Relocations and Improvements, and deployment of railroad safety technology. Eligible activities also include regional rail and corridor Planning, environmental analyses, research, workforce development, and training.
