Clean Fuels Grant Program
A total of $28,753,000 million was available for discretionary allocation under the Clean Fuels Grant program in FY 2008. FTA published a notice of funding availability (NOFA) on May 22, 2008, inviting proposals for funding under the program. The proposals that were submitted addressed a number of FTA priorities under the program, such as: Replacement of vehicles that had met their useful life, fleet expansion to improve service, and construction of clean fuels related facilities to support alternative fuel vehicles. FTA received proposals totaling over $350 million in response to the NOFA.
In its evaluation of proposals, FTA considered the criteria specified in the NOFA as well as the productivity and efficiency of transit systems which applied for funding. FTA recognizes that there is an on-going need for critical investment in clean fuel vehicles and the facilities to support new technologies. FTA is awarding facility projects a considerable portion of the amount requested because grantees often do not receive enough funds to complete a facility project in one award. Projects selected for funding are shown in Table 1, which accompanies this announcement. The funding announced in this notice will be available for obligation until September 30, 2010.Start Signature
