Safety is Union Pacific's No. 1 priority. We are committed to working collaboratively with communities to promote safety, and have created UP CARES Safety Grants to provide financial support for community-owned railroad safety initiatives. Examples of programs eligible for UP CARES grant funds include youth education activities, school or community safety days, community safety blitzes and grade crossing educational enforcement activities.

Communities or organizations in towns where Union Pacific operates are invited to apply for a UP CARES Safety Grant, to be awarded in denominations from $500 to $5,000. An official representative of the organization (i.e. city employee, educator or principal, police officer or first responder) must complete the application. Applicants receiving grant money are responsible for providing follow-up information about how the grant money was used.
