AGENCY:

Federal Transit Administration (FTA), DOT.

ACTION:

Notice of Availability of FTA Bus and Bus Facilities Program Funds: Solicitation of Project Proposals for Veterans Transportation and Community Living Initiative grants.

SUMMARY:

The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) announces the availability of discretionary Section 5309 Bus and Bus Facilities grant funds in support of the Federal Interagency Coordinating Council on Access and Mobility's (CCAM or Coordinating Council) Veterans Transportation and Community Living Initiative (VTCLI or Initiative). This grant opportunity will be funded using $30 million in unallocated Discretionary Bus and Bus Facilities Program funds, authorized by 49 U.S.C. 5309(b) of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient, Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy For Users (SAFETEA-LU), Public Law 109-59, August 10, 2005.

This VTCLI grant opportunity makes funds available to local governmental agencies to finance capital costs of implementing, expanding, or increasing access to local One-Call/One-Click Transportation Resource Centers. These Centers simplify access to transportation for the public by connecting customers in one place to rides and transportation options provided in their locality by a variety of transportation providers and programs. This notice includes priorities established by the Coordinating Council's partnership for these discretionary funds, the criteria the interagency review panel will use to identify meritorious projects for funding, and describes how to apply. Additionally, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) will make mobility management training assistance and support available to Veteran's Affairs networks in communities selected for award. The Department of Labor (DOL) will make social communication technologies and training available to selected grantees in order to actively engage veterans, military service personnel and families as well as others in the community in the development of plans to better respond to the transportation needs of veterans and military service families.

This announcement is available on the FTA's Web site, on the Veterans Transportation and Community Living initiative Web page at: http://www.fta.dot.gov/​veterans. FTA will announce final selections on its Web site and in the Federal Register.

I. Funding Opportunity Description

A. Authority

The program is authorized under 49 USC Section 5309(b) as amended by Section 3011 of SAFETEA-LU:

“The Secretary may make grants under this section to assist State and local governmental authorities in financing 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.”

Eligible capital projects, as defined in 49 U.S.C. 5302(a)(1) include:

“* * * acquiring and constructing equipment or facilities for use in public transportation” (including design and engineering), “transit-related intelligent transportation systems”, and “the introduction of new technology through innovations and improved products, into public transportation.”

B. Background

President Obama has made the care and support of military families a top national security policy priority. In a January, 2011 report, “Strengthening Our Military Families: Meeting America's Commitment,” the White House noted the importance of “harnessing resources and expertise across the Federal Government [to improve] the quality of military family life [and help] communities more effectively support military families.”

Reliable mobility has direct and substantial impacts on many of the priorities presented in the report—such as promoting housing security among veterans, developing career and educational opportunities, and reducing barriers to employment. To fulfill the President's objectives on behalf of veterans, active duty service persons and their families, members of the Federal Interagency Coordinating Council on Access and Mobility came together with Veteran and Military Service Organizations (VSO/MSO) around the country to discuss transportation challenges. They agreed that:

1. When it comes to transportation, more effective and consistent coordination is needed among Federal, state, and community-based programs that already deliver or sponsor services to veterans and people with disabilities where they live; and,

2. Enhancing veterans' awareness of, and access to, transportation choices in their communities is integral to successfully reintegrating these men and women and their families.

In order to achieve these outcomes, several CCAM members—the Departments of Transportation, Veterans Affairs, Labor, and Health and Human Services—have joined with the Department of Defense to launch the Veterans Transportation and Community Living Initiative (VTCLI). As part of this initiative, the FTA will make available $30 million in unallocated Section 5309 Bus and Bus Facilities funds under this notice. With these funds, FTA will help communities address transportation needs of veterans, military families, people with disabilities and other transportation disadvantaged populations acquire technologies to implement One-Call/One Click Transportation Resource Centers (One-Call/One-Click Centers). These local One-Call/One-Click Centers, supported with FTA funding, will be complemented by training, technical assistance, outreach and social media technology investments provided by FTA and other participating agencies in the VTCLI.

C. Program Purpose

Building on the success of the FTA Office of United We Ride (UWR) “One Call Center” model, the Veterans Transportation and Community Living initiative will help communities build or expand local One-Call/One-Click Centers to bring together transportation services available to the general public with those available to customers of human services programs, and especially services for veterans and military families. Coordinating transportation services will promote improved access to community services and employment, and will advance the integration of those with disabilities into their communities.

Based on its mission to care for America's veterans, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) provides transportation only to and from VA medical facilities. As our existing veterans age and as veterans and injured service members returning from Iraq and Afghanistan transition from active duty into the VA system need reliable transportation options and services beyond those the VA is able to provide in order to maintain or regain an active community life.

In many communities, transportation resources already exist for those who are not able to drive themselves. Yet all too often, members of the veterans and military communities are unable to participate fully in their communities because they aren't aware of the existing transportation resources, don't know how to access them, or don't participate in the transportation planning and the resource allocation processes.

The one-call model requires coordination efforts that ensure local and regional transportation planners, providers, and Federal agencies work together more effectively to help veterans, their families and other community members tap into any and all mobility options that meet their needs—whether it's picking up a ride from a fellow college student to get to campus or arranging for a wheelchair-accessible van to get to a physical therapy appointment. Veterans and military families represent a population with needs that have not traditionally been fully considered or addressed by transportation coordinators and providers around the nation. Therefore, improving transportation options for America's veterans, service members and their families will help to integrate these valued members of our society. The VTCLI will award a funding, technical assistance and training package to communities whose proposals:

1. Identify transportation and mobility needs of their veterans and military community;

2. Propose to create or increase access to a community One-Call/One-Click Transportation Resource Center or expand existing community One-Call/One-Click Center to include transportation resources and address identified needs of veterans and military families;

3. Commit to increase the use of mobility management techniques within the VA system; and,

4. Commit to use innovative or technology-based approaches to increase involvement in locally coordinated transportation planning to address additional mobility needs of veterans and members of the military community.

II. FTA and Other Partnership Award Information

A. FTA Award Information

Federal transit funds are available to State or local governmental authorities as recipients and other public, private and non-profit organizations as subrecipients at up to 80% of the project cost, requiring a 20% local match. FTA will award a maximum of $2 million for any single grant, but will award as many grants as possible with the available $30 million based on the number and size of funding requests. The evaluation team will consider geographical diversity as well as distribution amongst large urban, small urban and rural areas in Start Printed Page 44981making funding recommendations. The FTA Administrator will determine the final selection and amount of funding for each project. Selected projects will be announced in November 2011. FTA will publish the list of all selected projects and funding levels in the Federal Register.

B. Other Partnership Award Information

Upon selection to receive FTA Section 5309 funds, communities will also receive a combination of technical assistance and training, as listed below:

1. The Department of Veterans Affairs will support VA hospitals and medical facilities in or nearest the selected communities by providing mobility management training assistance and/or staff positions.

2. DOL's Office of Disability Employment Policy will fund online, collaborative workspaces for communities to use in planning and implementing their one-call center and further transportation coordination efforts.

3. The FTA Office of United We Ride, through its transportation technical assistance centers, will provide technical assistance to each awardee to assist in building or expanding a One-Call/One-Click Center to address customer transportation connections and issues.

III. Eligibility Information

A. Eligible Applicants

Eligible applicants for Section 5309 funds under this program are Direct Recipients under FTA's Section 5307 Urbanized Area Formula program, local governments, States, and Indian Tribes. States may submit consolidated proposals for projects in a given State.

Proposals may contain projects to be implemented by the recipient or its subrecipients. Eligible subrecipients of FTA funding include: Public agencies, private non-profit organizations, including VSOs and MSOs, and private providers engaged in public transportation.

B. Eligible Expenses

SAFETEA-LU grants authority to the Secretary of Transportation to make grants to assist State and local governmental authorities in financing capital projects to improve public transportation. Eligible capital projects, defined in 49 U.S.C. 5302(a)(1) includes “acquiring and constructing equipment or facilities for use in public transportation” (including design and engineering), “transit-related intelligent transportation systems,” and “the introduction of new technology through innovations and improved products, into public transportation.”

Projects eligible for funding under the Veterans Transportation and Community Living Initiative must focus on the implementation of One-Call/One-Click Centers and related transportation coordination. Eligible expenses under the Initiative include capital expenses related to the establishment of a One-Call/One-Click Center. These costs can include: hardware purchases (computers, servers); in-vehicle technology (automatic vehicle location systems, communication devices, mobile data terminals); software (scheduling & dispatching, communications, billing, consumer mobile applications); facility-related capital (purchase, lease, alteration); design and engineering, including consultant costs; and project administration (not to exceed 10% of costs).

Note:

Unlike other Section 5309 competitive programs, vehicle acquisition and preventive maintenance costs are not eligible under this grant opportunity. Additionally, mobility management transportation coordination expenses to support the operating expenses of Centers are not an eligible capital cost under the Section 5309 program, but are eligible under other FTA programs.

C. Cost Sharing

Costs will be shared at the following ratio: 80% FTA/20% local contribution, unless the grantee requests a lower Federal share. FTA will not approve deferred local share under this program.

IV. Proposal Submission Information

A. Proposal Process

An applicant may submit a project whereby funding for capital elements would be expended during the design, development, procurement and implementation stages of the One Call Center. The project would, however, need to be ready to actively initiate these stages upon receiving a grant and would need to complete the project in a reasonable period, in order to provide the new or enhanced coordinated services as soon as practicable.

Project proposals must be submitted electronically through GRANTS.GOV. Complete proposals for the Veterans Transportation and Community Living Initiative must be submitted electronically through the GRANTS.GOV Web site no later than September 16, 2011.

Applicants are encouraged to begin the process of registration on the GRANTS.GOV site well in advance of the submission deadline. Registration is a multi-step process, which may take several weeks to complete before a proposal can be submitted. In addition to the mandatory SF424 Form that will be downloaded from GRANTS.GOV, FTA requires applicants to complete the Supplemental FTA Form (Applicant and Proposal Profile) for this Initiative. The supplemental form provides guidance and a consistent format for applicants to respond to the criteria outlined in this Notice and described in detail on the FTA Web site at the program Web site: http://www.fta.dot.gov/​veterans.

Applicants must use this Supplemental Form and attach it to their submission in GRANTS.GOV to successfully complete the application process. Within 24-48 hours after submitting an electronic proposal, the applicant should receive an e-mail validation message from GRANTS.GOV. The validation will state whether GRANTS.GOV found any issues with the submitted application. As an additional notification, FTA's system will notify the applicant if there are any problems with the submitted Supplemental FTA Form. If making a resubmission for any reason, include all original attachments regardless of which attachments were updated. Complete instructions on the proposal process can be found at http://www.fta.dot.gov/​veterans.

Important: FTA urges applicants to submit their proposal at least 72 hours prior to the due date to allow time to receive the validation message and to correct any problems that may have caused a rejection notification. Submissions received after September 16, 2011 will not be accepted.

V. Proposal Review, Selection and Notification

A. Project Evaluation Criteria

As an initiative of the CCAM, the VTCLI should not create narrowly focused programs or services. Applicants must identify how the proposal will enhance and/or increase transportation or mobility benefits to other community members, particularly, transportation disadvantaged populations.

Projects will be evaluated by an interagency review team based on the proposals submitted according to: (1) Planning and prioritization at the local/regional level; (2) readiness; (3) technical, legal and financial capacity; and (4) demonstration of need.

Each applicant is encouraged to demonstrate the responsiveness of a project to all of the selection criteria with the most relevant information that the applicant can provide, regardless of whether such information has been specifically requested, or identified, in this notice.

The review panel will assess the extent to which a project addresses the following criteria.

1. Planning and Prioritization at the Local/Regional Level

a. Demonstrate that the project can be included in the financially-constrained Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)/Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). If the project is selected, the project must be in TIP before grant can be awarded.

b. Local support is demonstrated by availability of local match and letters of support for project.

c. Applicants are required to form partnerships with the following types of organizations or service providers:

i. Transportation organizations, which include, but are not limited to: transit agencies, brokers, taxis, volunteer driver services; planning agencies, such as, MPO, and local coordinated plan's public transit/human services lead agency;

iv. Existing One-Call/One-Click Service or Transportation Centers in the community, if any. As the goal of United We Ride is to improve coordination and eliminate silos of operation, if the new One-Call/One-Click Transportation Resource Center will stand-alone as its own entity, the proposer must indicate that there are either no existing One-Call/One-Click Service or Transportation Centers in the community OR provide a strong justification why a separate One-Call/One-Click Transportation Resource Center will produce the best outcomes for the community and document the partnerships through letters of support.

v. Applicants must also indicate how the partners were involved in the proposal development and how they will participate in its implementation. Proposals without proof of partnerships with all four of the above-listed organizations will not be considered.

d. Applicants should also consider and develop partnerships with additional groups beyond those required above. Partnerships with employment, disability, or aging groups will increase a proposal's chance of selection.

Applicants should consider including other groups in the proposal process, including:

i. Employers, workforce development and training agencies, etc.

ii. Independent living/aging organizations (e.g., Centers for Independent Living, Senior Centers, Aging and Disability Resource Centers)

iii. Local political officials

e. Applicants may also provide documentation and/or descriptions of any additional partners who participated in the planning and development of their proposal, if applicable.

f. Communities must include a letter of endorsement from the nearest VA Medical Center Director in order for the VA Medical healthcare network to receive supplemental VA-sponsored technical assistance and support.
