All Stations Accessibility Program

What's New

  • On July 26, 2022, the 32nd anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, FTA announced approximately $343 million available for Fiscal Year 2022 grants for the All Stations Accessibility Program (ASAP). The Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) will make it easier for people with disabilities to access the nation’s oldest subway, commuter rail and light rail stations.
  • There is no award maximum or cap for ASAP grants. Grants.gov has been updated with this information.

Overview

The All Stations Accessibility Program makes competitive funding available to assist in the financing of capital projects to repair, improve, modify, retrofit, or relocate infrastructure of stations or facilities for passenger use.

Eligible Recipients

Eligible applicants for ASAP include designated recipients that allocate funds to legacy rail fixed guideway public transportation systems, states (including territories and Washington D.C.) or local governmental entities that operate legacy rail fixed guideway public transportation systems. 

Eligible Activities

Eligible activities are capital projects to upgrade the accessibility of legacy rail fixed guideway public transportation systems for people with disabilities, including those who use wheelchairs, by increasing the number of existing stations or facilities for passenger use that meet or exceed the new construction standards of title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (42 U.S.C. 12131). Activities include:

  • Repairing, improving, modifying, retrofitting, or relocating infrastructure of stations or facilities for passenger use, including load-bearing members that are an essential part of the structural frame;
