Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 94 / Monday, May 18, 2009 / Notices C. Section 1609: Environmental Reporting Section 1609(c) of the Recovery Act requires that Federal agencies report via the President (specifically, to the White House Council on Environmental Quality) every 90 days following enactment of the Recovery Act on the status of projects funded under the Recovery Act with respect to compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act. To satisfy the purposes of the Recovery Act, grant recipients may be required to provide additional information in response to requests from OMB, the Congressional Budget Office, the Government Accountability Office, or the Department’s Inspector General. The Department will inform grant recipients if and when such additional reports are required. Further information about how grant recipients will be expected to comply with the reporting requirements of the Recovery Act will be provided in the individual grant agreements signed by recipients of TIGER Discretionary Grants. X. Certification Requirements As a condition of award, to the extent applicable, grantees must comply with the Certification requirements of the Recovery Act. These include Section 1201 (Maintenance of Effort); Section 1511 (Transparency and Oversight); and Section 1607 (Additional Funding Distribution and Assurance of Appropriate Use of Funds). On February 27, 2009, Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood sent a letter to the Governors of each State providing guidance and a template for the Certifications required by the Recovery Act, a copy of which is available on the Department’s Recovery Act Web site, at http://www.dot.gov/recovery/. All applicable Certifications must be submitted to the Department at TigerTeam.Leads@dot.gov. Certifications may be submitted via email as electronic, scanned copies, with original signed versions to follow via U.S. mail. cprice-sewell on PRODPC61 with NOTICES A. Section 1201(a): Maintenance of Effort By March 19, 2009, State Governors were required to certify to the Secretary of Transportation that the State would maintain its effort with regard to State funding for the types of projects funded by the appropriation, for each amount distributed to a State or a State agency under this program. As part of this Certification, the Governor was required to submit to the Secretary a statement VerDate Nov<24>2008 14:36 May 15, 2009 Jkt 217001 identifying the amount of funds the State planned to expend from State sources as of February 17, 2009, during the period between February 17, 2009 and September 30, 2010, for the types of projects funded by the appropriation. The maintenance of effort requirement in section 1201(a) applies to any TIGER Discretionary Grant recipient that is a State government (or agency thereof) that planned, as of February 17, 2009, to expend State funds on the project receiving a TIGER Discretionary Grant during the period between February 17, 2009, and September 30, 2010. B. Section 1511: Transparency and Oversight For Grant Funds made available to State or local governments for infrastructure investments, the Governor, mayor, or other chief executive, as appropriate, must certify that the infrastructure investment (1) received the full review and vetting required by law; and (2) that the chief executive accepts responsibility that it is an appropriate use of taxpayer dollars. This Certification must be executed and posted on a Web site and linked to Recovery.gov prior to the recipient of a TIGER Discretionary Grant receiving Grant Funds. If the potential project is a highway or transit project and it is included in the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) with the specific information required by Section 1511 (a description of the investment, the estimated total cost, and the amount of ARRA funds to be used), it may be included in the Governor’s Section 1511 Certification covering highway and transit projects in a State. One way for the Governor’s Certification to satisfy the Section 1511 requirement is for the Certification to state that the project is included in the STIP and therefore has completed the TIP/STIP planning process. In this case, the Governor’s Certification must also provide a link to the public web posting of the STIP that includes (or will include) any highway and transit project designated to receive Recovery Act funding. If the project is not included in the STIP, a separate Certification for the potential TIGER Discretionary Grant project must be executed, attaching the relevant information or linking to a public Web site where the information may be obtained. This Certification must include a description of the investment, the estimated total cost, and the amount of covered funds to be used, and must be posted online and linked to the Web site Recovery.gov. The Certification must also state that the projects have been properly reviewed PO 00000 Frm 00071 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 23237 and vetted and are an appropriate use of taxpayer dollars. C. Section 1607: Additional Funding Distribution and Assurance of Appropriate Use of Funds Section 1607 required that Governors of States receiving funding under the Recovery Act certify by April 3, 2009, that, for Grant Funds provided to any State or State agency, the State would request and use the funds provided in the Recovery Act and that such funds would be used to create jobs and promote economic growth. Alternatively, the State legislature could have acted to accept such funds by the adoption of a concurrent resolution. States or State agencies ultimately receiving TIGER Discretionary Grant funds must ensure that this Certification has been completed. D. Submission of Certifications Under Sections 1201, 1511, and 1607 All Certifications, once executed, shall be submitted to the Secretary of Transportation, c/o Joel Szabat, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Transportation Policy, at TigerTeam.Leads@dot.gov. Certifications may be submitted via email as electronic, scanned copies, with original signed versions to follow via U.S. mail. As required by the Recovery Act, Certifications under Section 1511 shall be immediately posted on a Web site and linked to the Web site Recovery.gov. XI. Questions and Clarifications Questions about this notice should be submitted to the TIGER Discretionary Grants program manager via e-mail at TIGERGrants@dot.gov. The Department will regularly post answers to these questions and other important clarifications on the Department’s Web site at http://www.dot.gov/recovery/ost/. Issued on: May 12, 2009.
