Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 162 / Wednesday, August 23, 2017 / Notices Planning activities are not eligible under this competition. 10. Are public car-ferries eligible? Answer: Ferry systems that accommodate cars must also accommodate walk-on passengers in order to be eligible. 11. Is the construction of a ferry maintenance facility an eligible capital project? Answer: Yes. 12. Is a new vessel construction funded by FTA grants considered a public work or rolling stock and therefore subject to Davis Bacon? Answer: Yes, a new vessel construction is rolling stock. Davis Bacon applies to construction, alteration, or repairs of public buildings or public works, but it does not apply to rolling stock. 13. Does the term ‘‘terminals & related infrastructure’’ projects include the floating docks and access ramps where the passengers board? Answer: Yes. 14. Is there a difference between the FTA’s Passenger Ferry Grant Program and FHWA’s Ferry Boat Formula Grant Funding Program? Answer: There may be subtle differences between FTA’s and FHWA’s programs. However, FHWA no longer has a competitive program. It is now a formula program. Please refer to FHWA’s page for more information: http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/. 15. What is the grant process after an entity is selected? Answer: An agency would work with the FTA regional office to apply for the funds in FTA’s electronic management system. The Federal Register announcing selection will also provide grant-making instructions.
