The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) Transit Security Grant Program (TSGP) is authorized the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (P.L.
111-5) and the Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007 (P.L.
110-53) (the 9/11 Act).
ARRA TSGP will
focus on the use of visible, unpredictable deterrence through the funding of Operational Packages for canine teams, mobile explosives detection screening teams, and Anti-Terrorism teams both due to their effectiveness in reducing risk to transit systems and their potential for job creation.
In addition, funding will be provided for capital projects including Multi-User High-Density Key Infrastructure Protection, Single-User High-Density Key Infrastructure Protection, Key Operating Asset Protection, and Other Mitigation Activities.
