No later than 60 days after issuing such notice, the applicant will be notified whether the application is approved or disapproved. asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES D. Streamlined Application Process The FAST Act requires that the DOT develop a streamlined application process for certain projects within 180 days after enactment. The DOT is in the process of developing such a process. Once that process has been developed, it will be included in the Program Guide on the TIFIA Web site: https://www.transportation.gov/tifia/ program-guide. The statutory criteria for the streamlined application process are set forth in Section 603(f). A key component of the streamlined application process will likely be a requirement that TIFIA credit assistance is provided on the DOT’s standard terms as set forth in the loan agreement templates on the TIFIA Web site: https://www.transportation.gov/tifia/ tifia-loan-term-sheet-and-agreement. Project sponsors should indicate in their Letters of Interest whether they are requesting the streamlined process and, if so, demonstrate how they meet the criteria. As noted above, the project sponsor must submit $250,000 to the DOT before the DOT hires financial and/or legal advisors as part of the Letter of Interest review process (subject to availability of the set-aside for small projects, as discussed above). This amount is due upon request by the DOT. Project sponsors will be invoiced for any costs in excess of $250,000 incurred by the DOT from its outside financial and legal advisors (subject to availability of the $2 million set-aside for small projects, as discussed above). More detailed information about these costs can be found in the TIFIA Program Guide, which is in the process of being updated to reflect the changes made by the FAST Act: https://www.transportation.gov/ tifia/program-guide. TIFIA borrowers should expect to track and report certain information with respect to each project’s performance. The information may be used to assist the DOT in determining whether TIFIA is meeting the program’s goals of leveraging Federal funds and encouraging private co-investment. The DOT may also use the information for purposes of identifying and measuring performance with respect to goals, strategies, time frames, resources, and stakeholder involvement. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:56 Mar 10, 2016 Jkt 238001 VII. Additional Guidance and Request for Comments As noted in the Summary section, the DOT is publishing this notice to give project sponsors the opportunity to submit Letters of Interest for the newly authorized funding as soon as is practicable. However, in addition to authorizing funding for TIFIA credit assistance, the FAST Act made some significant changes to the TIFIA program’s structure, including the terms and conditions pursuant to which the DOT can provide TIFIA credit assistance. This notice provides guidance about the TIFIA application process and how the DOT will implement some of the changes made by the FAST Act, but it does not provide comprehensive guidance about how the DOT will implement all of the changes made by the FAST Act. This notice also does not include an exhaustive list of statutory and program requirements, such as the requirement that Federal funding recipients must comply with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and other nondiscrimination requirements. The Background section of this notice identifies the relevant laws that govern the TIFIA program. The FAST Act provides that the Secretary may promulgate such regulations as the Secretary determines to be appropriate to carry out the TIFIA program. The TIFIA regulations (49 CFR part 80), which provide specific guidance on the program requirements, were last updated in 2000. The DOT will continue to evaluate, based on stakeholder feedback and experience with implementation of new provisions contained in the FAST Act, whether future regulatory updates would be beneficial, and if so, what subject areas they would cover. The primary document that the TIFIA program uses to provide ongoing program guidance is a ‘‘Program Guide’’ published on the TIFIA Web site. The DOT is updating the TIFIA Program Guide to reflect changes to the program under the FAST Act and will endeavor to address comments received in response to this request for comments. For additional guidance, applicants are encouraged to check the TIFIA program Web site regularly to obtain updated programmatic and application information. DOT staff are also available to provide technical assistance on a realtime basis. Because of the significance of the changes made by the FAST Act to the TIFIA program, this notice invites interested parties to submit comments about that program’s implementation of PO 00000 Frm 00179 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the FAST Act and the DOT’s guidance for awarding TIFIA credit assistance. Interested parties can provide comments on any aspect of the DOT’s implementation of the TIFIA changes made by the FAST Act, including identifying specific topic areas where additional clarification or guidance would be beneficial to potential applicants. The DOT is particularly interested in comments from interested parties regarding the provisions in the FAST Act relating to rural projects fund capitalizations and SIBs. The DOT will consider these comments as it continues to implement the program and develop supplemental program guidance. The instructions for submitting comments are included below. Comments should be sent to the DOT by April 11, 2016. Late-filed comments will be considered to the extent practicable.
