SEPTA leverages Replica data in successful FRA grant application

The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) received a federal grant award of $30.5 million for the Cornwells Heights Station project. The funding comes from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) Federal-State Partnership for Intercity Passenger Rail Program, administered by the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), and the project includes construction of a new high-level pedestrian platform at the Cornwells Heights regional rail station on SEPTA's Trenton Line.

SEPTA used Replica’s seasonal demographic data from the Places product to supplement their in-house ridership data to bolster the grant application. Moreover, Replica data enabled SEPTA to understand not only who is boarding/alighting at Cornwells Heights but also who is riding along the Trenton Line in its entirety (i.e., demonstrating the network effects of the proposed investment), thereby strengthening the case for equity as it pertained to the grant application.

New York State DOT: benefit-cost analysis for RAISE Grant Application

New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) was awarded $18.2 million through the RAISE grant program for the North Genesee Street Gateway Bridge and Multi-Modal Connector Project. The project will replace two aging bridges and make bike and pedestrian improvements to provide residents with reliable access and connectivity for all modes of transportation. NYSDOT used Replica's mode-specific network link volumes and O/D data to inform the cost/benefit analysis in their RAISE application.

Rancho Cordova, CA
California ATP Grant

Working with Dewberry, Rancho Cordova, California, won $19 million for the California Active Transportation Program (ATP) grant. Replica data was used to win this work through providing origin-destination pairs and bike and pedestrian data to support the proposal.

HDR Wins RAISE Grant for Salina, KS

HDR recently used Replica data to support its successful RAISE grant application for the City of Salina, Kansas, (Project Name: 7 Bridges in Salina, Kansas). This fall, the city accepted $22 million in federal funding to restore a river channel through its urban core, which will require significant infrastructure improvements and improve accessibility to areas of interest like schools and recreational areas such as parks, event centers, and athletic complexes. The infrastructure improvements include reconstructed bridges, autonomous floodgates, pedestrian accommodations, and a multi-modal transportation hub. Read More.

From numbers to narratives: Unleashing the power of data to win competitive grants

In today’s competitive grant landscape, we need to use every tool at our disposal to tell a compelling story about how infrastructure dollars will positively impact our communities. Data is one crucial component of the grant application process and can help show, in a quantitative way, how funding will make a real impact on the ground.

The right kind of data – when comprehensive, trustworthy, and easily accessible – can give your grant applications the edge it needs to win competitive state and federal dollars for your projects. This is especially true when agencies must show how their projects will benefit historically disadvantaged communities – needing numbers, rather than anecdotes – to win much needed funding for those who need it most.
