The reallocation request must include information sufficient for FTA to make the following determinations: • The proposed project is a capital recovery project that addresses damage caused directly by Hurricane Sandy. • The proposed recovery project is documented in previously validated damage estimates (original or revised) or in new documentation demonstrating that the damage was caused by Hurricane Sandy. • For proposed recovery projects that include costs associated with repairing transportation assets owned by other entities, the applicant must provide documentation showing that the asset is used for public transportation purposes, and that the proposed share of the project cost is consistent with written agreement(s) between the public transit agency and the owner of the asset. • The proposed recovery project complies with the Appropriations Act, the FTA’s Emergency Relief Program Final Rule and applicable FTA guidance. • If funds will be reallocated from a resilience project for which FTA has disbursed funding, the applicant must demonstrate that that the funds disbursed to date will support a resilience project of independent utility, consistent with the scope of the competitive funding application if applicable. • The request must also include documentation explaining why the applicant has prioritized the recovery project over the resilience project. The eligibility of recovery projects for reallocated funding is consistent with previous eligibilities for recovery funding under this program. Funds reallocated under this procedure may only be used for the recovery project or projects listed in the reallocation request. B. Requirements Agencies that wish to request a reallocation of resilience funds must provide: • The name, location, and description of the recovery project(s) for which funds are requested to be reallocated to. • Documentation identifying the project in the most recent validated Hurricane Sandy damage assessment, or VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:27 Jul 01, 2016 Jkt 238001 if new, documentation showing that the project is an eligible disaster recovery expense resulting directly from damages caused by Hurricane Sandy.

All requests for reallocation of funds for recovery projects must be submitted to FTA no later than September 30, 2016. All requests must be submitted through the FTA Emergency Relief docket under FTA–2016–0001. FTA will post the agency response to reallocation requests to the docket. III.
