This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

The guidance document and additional information about the HSR/IPR Grant Program are available on FRA's public Web site at: http://www.fra.dot.gov/us/content/2243. This Program builds upon the President's “Vision for High-Speed Rail in America,” which was issued on April 16, 2009, and which describes a collaborative effort among the Federal Government, States, railroads and other key stakeholders to help transform America's transportation system by investing in an efficient, high-speed passenger rail network of 100 to 600 mile intercity corridors. The guidance document details HSR/IPR Grant Program funding opportunities as well as specific application requirements and procedures. The funds are being made available under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) and the Department of Transportation Appropriations Acts of fiscal years 2008 and 2009. ARRA requires the Secretary of Transportation to issue interim guidance to applicants within 120 days of enactment. In addition to being available on the FRA's Web site, the guidance will be published in the Federal Register at a later date.Start Signature
