Grants Totaling $2.7 Million
The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT), in concert with the Massachusetts Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development, awarded grants ranging from $30,000 to $500,000 to nine different freight-rail-related projects late in the fall of 2019. Recipients committed to matching those grants with significant sums of their own money, and the total “match” will come to $3.3 million. For a closer look at this latest round of Industrial Rail Access Program grants, we are publishing here a copy of the presentation made by Astrid Glynn, MassDOT’s Rail & Transit Administrator, during the agency’s Nov. 18th board of directors meeting.
