ACTION:

State of Good Repair Bus and Bus Facilities program announcement of project selections.

SUMMARY:

The U.S. Department of Transportation's (DOT) Federal Transit Administration (FTA) announces the selection of projects funded with Section 5309 Bus and Bus Facilities program funds in support of the State of Good Repair (SGR) Initiative, which was announced in the State of Good Repair Initiative Notice of Funding Availability on May 4, 2010. The SGR Initiative makes funds available to public transit providers to finance capital projects to replace, rehabilitate, and purchase buses and related equipment and to construct bus-related facilities, including programs of bus and bus-related projects for assistance to subrecipients that are public agencies, private companies engaged in public transportation, or private non-profit organizations. Additionally, the SGR Initiative makes funds available for Transit Asset Management systems, which is a systematic process of operating, maintaining, improving, and expanding physical assets effectively throughout their life cycles.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A total of $776,474,305 was available for FTA's SGR Initiative. A total of 422 applicants requested $4.06 billion, indicating significant demand for funds. Project proposals were evaluated based on the criteria detailed in the May 4, 2010 Notice of Funding Availability. The projects selected and shown in Table 1 will provide funds to help maintain the nation's public transportation bus fleet, infrastructure, and equipment in a state of good repair.

Grantees selected for competitive discretionary funding under the SGR Initiative should work with their FTA regional office (Appendix) to finalize the application in FTA's Transportation Electronic Award Management system, (TEAM) so that funds can be obligated expeditiously. Funds must be used for projects detailed in the proposal and for the purposes specified in the project descriptions in the table. A discretionary project identification number has been assigned to each project for tracking purposes and must be used in the TEAM application. Selected projects have pre-award authority as of October 4, 2010. Post-award reporting requirements include submission of the Federal Financial Report (FFR) and Milestone Report in TEAM as appropriate (see FTA.C.5010.1D).

The grantee must comply with all applicable Federal statutes, regulations, executive orders, FTA circulars, and other Federal administrative requirements in carrying out the project supported by the FTA grant. Funds allocated in this announcement must be obligated in a grant by September 30, 2013.
