ACTION: Notice. SUMMARY: The FHWA is announcing a livability initiative to harmonize and coordinate the Federal-aid highway program with grant-in-aid programs administered by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Under this initiative, the FHWA will utilize Special Experimental Project No. 14 (SEP–14) to permit, on a case-by-case basis, the application of HUD requirements on Federal-aid highway projects that may otherwise conflict with Federal-aid highway program requirements. One such requirement is contained in HUD’s Section 3 Program, the goal of which is to provide training, employment and contracting opportunities to low and very low income persons residing within the metropolitan area (or nonmetropolitan county) in which the project is located and businesses that substantially employ such persons. The purposes of this SEP–14 initiative is to evaluate the contracting efficiencies and impacts on competition in harmonizing conflicting FHWA and HUD contracting requirements, and to further the goals of the DOT, HUD, and EPA partnership on sustainable communities. This initiative will not result in the diversion of highway funds to housing projects. The statutory funding eligibility requirements must continue to be met in order to use Federal-aid highway funds. DATES: This new experimental project is being initiated on June 25, 2010.

Background On March 30, 2010, the FHWA published a notice (75 FR 15767) regarding the FHWA’s proposal to permit, on a case-by-case basis, the application of HUD requirements on Federal-aid highway projects that may otherwise conflict with Federal-aid highway program requirements, such as HUD’s Section 3 Program that requires employment opportunities be provided to low and very low income persons residing within the area in which the project is located. This SEP–14 initiative is being advanced by the FHWA in order to evaluate the potential efficiencies that may be realized by harmonizing FHWA and HUD contracting requirements for jointly funded projects. Additionally, this initiative furthers the June 16, 2009, DOT, HUD, and EPA Interagency Partnership for Sustainable Communities. One of the goals of this partnership is to better align DOT, HUD, and EPA programs to encourage better coordination and location efficiency in housing and transportation choices. More information on the partnership can be found at https:// www.fhwa.dot.gov/livability/and https:// www.epa.gov/smartgrowth/partnership/ index.html. SEP–14 In 1988, a Transportation Research Board (TRB) task force, comprised of representatives from all segments of the highway industry, was formed to evaluate Innovative Contracting Practices. This TRB task force requested that the FHWA establish a project to evaluate and validate certain findings of the task force regarding innovative contracting practices, which are documented in Transportation Research Circular Number 386, titled, ‘‘Innovative Contracting Practices,’’ dated December 1991. In response, the FHWA initiated Special Experimental Project No. 14 (SEP–14) pursuant to the authority granted to the Secretary under 23 U.S.C. 502(a).
