High Speed Intercity Passenger Rail Funding by Region

The Federal Railroad Administration, along with its 32 state partners and the District of Columbia, is laying the foundation for a 21st century passenger rail network. With $10.1 billion in federal funding available through the High-Speed Intercity Passenger Rail Program, we have invested in more than 150 planning and construction projects.

Fifty-two construction projects amounting to $2.7 billion in funding are underway or complete in 21 states and the District of Columbia, and an additional 12 projects amounting to $1.4 billion in funding are expected to be underway in the next six months. Thirty-nine projects of all types are substantially complete, while six more are expected to be complete in the next six months.
