The FY 2015 TSGP is one of DHS’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2015 grant programs that directly support transportation infrastructure security activities.
TSGP is one tool in the comprehensive set of measures authorized by Congress and implemented by the Administration to strengthen the Nation’s critical
infrastructure against risks associated with potential terrorist attacks.
TSGP provides funds to eligible publicly owned operators of public transportation (which include intra-city bus, commuter bus, ferries, and all forms of passenger rail) to protect critical surface transportation infrastructure and the traveling public from acts of terrorism and to increase the resilience of transit infrastructure.
The FY 2015 TSGP plays an important role in the implementation of the National Preparedness System by supporting the building, sustainment, and delivery of core capabilities essential to achieving the National Preparedness Goal (the Goal) of a secure and resilient Nation.
Delivering core capabilities requires the combined effort of the whole community, rather than the exclusive effort of any single organization or level of government.
The FY 2015 TSGP’s allowable costs support efforts to build and sustain core capabilities across the Prevention, Protection, Mitigation, Response, and Recovery mission areas.
