FY 2006 Infrastructure Protection Program: Intercity Passenger Rail Security: As a component of the Infrastructure Protection Program (IPP), the FY 2006 IPRSGP seeks to assist Amtrak in obtaining the resources required to support the Goal and the associated National Priorities. Through its focus on regional planning, infrastructure protection, improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and other non-conventional methods of attack, as well as training and exercises, the FY 2006 IPRSGP directly addresses six of the seven National Priorities: 1) expanded regional collaboration; 2) implementing the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and National Response Plan (NRP); 3) implementing the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP); 4) strengthening information sharing and collaboration capabilities; 5) enhancing interoperable communications capabilities; and, 6) strengthening chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive (CBRNE) detection and response capabilities. In addition, the FY 2006 IPRSGP also supports strengthening emergency operations planning and citizen protection capabilities and assists in addressing security priorities specific to intercity passenger rail service.The FY 2006 IPRSGP provides financial assistance to Amtrak for the protection of critical infrastructure and emergency preparedness activities in the Northeast Corridor (service between Washington, DC and Boston, Massachusetts), at its hub in Chicago, Illinois, and for certain locations within its West Coast Service Area. Allowable costs comport with the FY 2006 Homeland Security Grant Program, and the expenditure of FY 2006 funding must directly support a risk-based Security and Emergency Preparedness Plan (SEPP) and must be coordinated with the Regional Transit Security Strategies (RTSS) in the National Capitol Region, Philadelphia, New York, Boston, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, Sacramento, Oakland, San Jose, Los Angeles and San Diego.
