The New Starts discretionary funds will advance Full Funding Grant Agreements payments and advance the Federal Government's commitments to the selected projects. The funding will give a well-timed boost to communities that have made important investments in their transportation infrastructure. Start Printed Page 17737Furthermore, the advance payments will save financial costs for the local transit project sponsors and free up local funds for other transit projects that will further enhance mobility and livability in their communities. A total of $207,403,999 is available for FTA's discretionary allocation under the New Starts program. Of the total made available, $182,404,000 will fund seven transit projects already under construction; $24,999,999 restores funding for the Oakland Airport Connector. Projects selected for funding are shown in Table 1, which accompanies this announcement. Project identification numbers are assigned to each project and must be used in the Transportation Electronic Award Management grant application.
