SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On March 15, 2006, the Federal Transit Administration issued a notice containing guidance for FY06 implementing, notice Aden request for comment for FY07 implementation, and announcement of public meeting for its Elderly Individuals and Individuals with Disabilities, Job Access and Reverse Commute, New Freedom Programs and Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plans (71 FR 13456). By this notice, FTA is seeking additional public comment to assist them in developing circulars for these programs. The comment closing date is scheduled for April 21, 2006, however, the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities, has requested an extension of the comment period. The FTA agrees that an extension of the comment period would be useful to permit the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities sufficient time to coordinate a comprehensive task force member response. Additionally, such an extension will give other parties additional time to provide thoughtful comments to FTA. Accordingly, FTA finds that good cause exists to extend the comment period on the notice from April 21, 2006, to May 22, 2006.
