[FR Doc. 2018–13408 Filed 6–22–18; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–RY–P DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Transit Administration Fiscal Year 2017 Grants for Buses and Bus Facilities Infrastructure Investment Program Federal Transit Administration (FTA), DOT. ACTION: Notice; announcement of project selections. Fiscal year 2017 Grants for Buses and Bus Facilities Infrastructure Investment Program. AGENCY: The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) announces the selection of projects with $226,473,000 of Fiscal Year (FY) 2017 and $37,973,775 of FY 2018 appropriations for the Grants for Buses and Bus Facilities Infrastructure Investment Program (Bus and Bus Infrastructure Program). SUMMARY: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Successful applicants should contact the appropriate FTA Regional Office for information regarding applying for the funds or program-specific information. A list of Regional Offices can be found at www.fta.dot.gov. Unsuccessful applicants may contact Mark G. Bathrick, Office of Program Management at (202) 366–9955, email: Mark.Bathrick@dot.gov, to arrange a proposal debriefing within 30 days of E:\FR\FM\25JNN1.SGM 25JNN1 29604 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 122 / Monday, June 25, 2018 / Notices this announcement. A TDD is available at 1–800–877–8339 (TDD/FIRS). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On July 18, 2017, FTA published a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) announcing the availability of Federal funding for the Grants for Buses and Bus Facilities Infrastructure Investment Program as authorized by Federal transit law (49 U.S.C. 5339(b)). These program funds will provide financial assistance to states and eligible public agencies to replace, rehabilitate, purchase, or lease buses, vans, and related equipment, and capital projects to rehabilitate, purchase, construct, or lease bus-related facilities. In response to the NOFO, FTA received 453 project proposals from 53 States and territories totaling approximately $2 billion in Federal funds, or nearly nine dollars requested for each dollar available, indicating significant demand for funding for buses and bus facility projects. Project proposals were evaluated based on each applicant’s responsiveness to the program evaluation criteria outlined in the NOFO. FTA is funding 139 projects, as shown in Table 1, for a total of $264,446,775. Recipients selected for competitive funding should work with their FTA Regional Office to submit a grant application in FTA’s Transit Award Management System (TrAMs) for the projects identified in the attached table. Funds must be used consistent with the competitive proposal and for the eligible capital purposes established in the NOFO and described in the FTA Circular 9030.1E. Applicants with more than one selected project will receive a single allocation that may be used for any one or more of the selected projects. In cases where the allocation amount is less than the proposer’s total requested amount, recipients are required to fund the scalable project option as described in the application. If the award amount does not correspond to the scalable option, for example due to a cap on the award amount, the recipient should work with the Regional Office to reduce scope or scale the project such that a complete phase or project is accomplished. Recipients are reminded that program requirements such as cost sharing or local match can be found in the NOFO. A discretionary project identification number has been assigned to each project for tracking purposes and must be used in the TrAMs application. Selected projects are eligible to incur costs under pre-award authority no earlier than the date projects were publicly announced, April 5, 2018. Preaward authority does not guarantee that project expenses incurred prior to the award of a grant will be eligible for reimbursement, as eligibility for reimbursement is contingent upon other requirements, such as planning and environmental requirements, having been met. For more about FTA’s policy on pre-award authority, please see the FTA Fiscal Year Apportionments, Allocations, and Program Information and Interim Guidance found in 82 FR 6692 (January 19, 2017). Post-award reporting requirements include submission of the Federal Financial Report and Milestone progress reports in TrAMs as appropriate (see FTA.C.5010.1E and C9030.1E). Recipients must comply with all applicable Federal statutes, regulations, executive orders, FTA circulars, and other Federal requirements in carrying out the project supported by the FTA grant. FTA emphasizes that recipients must follow all third-party procurement guidance, as described in FTA.C.4220.1F. Funds allocated in this announcement must be obligated in a grant by September 30, 2021. K. Jane Williams, Acting Administrator.

this announcement. A TDD is available at 1-800-877-8339 (TDD/FIRS).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On July 18, 2017, FTA published a Notice of 
Funding Opportunity (NOFO) announcing the availability of Federal 
funding for the Grants for Buses and Bus Facilities Infrastructure 
Investment Program as authorized by Federal transit law (49 U.S.C. 
5339(b)). These program funds will provide financial assistance to 
states and eligible public agencies to replace, rehabilitate, purchase, 
or lease buses, vans, and related equipment, and capital projects to 
rehabilitate, purchase, construct, or lease bus-related facilities. In 
response to the NOFO, FTA received 453 project proposals from 53 States 
and territories totaling approximately $2 billion in Federal funds, or 
nearly nine dollars requested for each dollar available, indicating 
significant demand for funding for buses and bus facility projects. 
Project proposals were evaluated based on each applicant's 
responsiveness to the program evaluation criteria outlined in the NOFO.
    FTA is funding 139 projects, as shown in Table 1, for a total of 
$264,446,775. Recipients selected for competitive funding should work 
with their FTA Regional Office to submit a grant application in FTA's 
Transit Award Management System (TrAMs) for the projects identified in 
the attached table. Funds must be used consistent with the competitive 
proposal and for the eligible capital purposes established in the NOFO 
and described in the FTA Circular 9030.1E. Applicants with more than 
one selected project will receive a single allocation that may be used 
for any one or more of the selected projects.
    In cases where the allocation amount is less than the proposer's 
total requested amount, recipients are required to fund the scalable 
project option as described in the application. If the award amount 
does not correspond to the scalable option, for example due to a cap on 
the award amount, the recipient should work with the Regional Office to 
reduce scope or scale the project such that a complete phase or project 
is accomplished. Recipients are reminded that program requirements such 
as cost sharing or local match can be found in the NOFO. A 
discretionary project identification number has been assigned to each 
project for tracking purposes and must be used in the TrAMs 
application.
    Selected projects are eligible to incur costs under pre-award 
authority no earlier than the date projects were publicly announced, 
April 5, 2018. Pre-award authority does not guarantee that project 
expenses incurred prior to the award of a grant will be eligible for 
reimbursement, as eligibility for reimbursement is contingent upon 
other requirements, such as planning and environmental requirements, 
having been met. For more about FTA's policy on pre-award authority, 
please see the FTA Fiscal Year Apportionments, Allocations, and Program 
Information and Interim Guidance found in 82 FR 6692 (January 19, 
2017). Post-award reporting requirements include submission of the 
Federal Financial Report and Milestone progress reports in TrAMs as 
appropriate (see FTA.C.5010.1E and C9030.1E). Recipients must comply 
with all applicable Federal statutes, regulations, executive orders, 
FTA circulars, and other Federal requirements in carrying out the 
project supported by the FTA grant. FTA emphasizes that recipients must 
follow all third-party procurement guidance, as described in 
FTA.C.4220.1F. Funds allocated in this announcement must be obligated 
in a grant by September 30, 2021.

Acting Administrator.
