    There was 8 billion granted under ARRA for discretionary grants to states for the costs of certain projects.  But I'll leave you to check out all the cross references as to types of project etc.  

    Looking at it, the money is available through September 2012 and then it goes away if not used.

      What's this "you're on your own stuff?"

      Everybody dies alone.

        It means my laptop is on the fritz and until I get it back I'm stuck using only my iPad at home.  So research and linky goodness is limited.  

        But I trusted you could find ARRA on your own and I see above that Adam found it for you AND that you've both realized what I pointed out - this is a discretionary grant program.

        My suggestion is to look at the grant application materials.  In the project I'm working on there are certain obligations that the grantee has and if the grantee doesn't comply with those obligations the govt. gets any unspent $$ back AND anything that was bought with the money so that it can all be transferred to someone who will complete the project.  But as I said, my project is not rail and involves only private entities.
