Federal Grant Awards

The Northern New England Passenger Rail Authority (NNEPRA) has been successful in securing both the Federal-State Grant and the Corridor ID Grant.

The Fed-State Grant, in partnership with CSX Transportation, will fund track-related upgrades to maintain reliability for the Amtrak Downeaster. The Corridor ID Grant will assist with planning and set the stage for future improvements to the service. Read more from the Portland Press Herald and from our partners at Amtrak.
