FTA Announces Funding Availability; Agency Also Issues Supplemental Guidance

On July 5, FTA posted to its website the Supplemental Fiscal Year 2017 Apportionment Notice and tables making available more than $12 billion in formula and discretionary funds for public transportation.

The supplemental notice provides additional guidance to FTA’s interim guidance (published in the Jan. 19 Federal Register) in three key areas:

* It reminds all states with operating rail transit systems that FTA is legally prohibited from obligating any funds to public transportation agencies in states that have failed to establish an FTA-certified State Safety Oversight Program by April 15, 2019.

* It implements and provides guidance on an amendment to the “100-bus rule” permitting an alternative approach to determining a public transportation agency’s operating assistance cap. The amendment is to Section 165 of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017, under the Urbanized Area Formula Program.

* It extends the period of availability of FY 2017 Fixed Guideway Capital Investment Grant program funds through Sept. 30, 2021.
