ACTION: Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO). AGENCY: The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) announces the opportunity to apply for approximately $19.19 million of funding under the Pilot Program for Transit-Oriented Development Planning (Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance #20.500).

DATES: Complete proposals must be submitted electronically through the GRANTS.GOV ‘‘APPLY’’ function by 11:59 p.m. EDT November 18, 2019.

Program Description Section 20005(b) of the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP–21; Pub. L. 112–141, July 6, 2012), with funding authorized by 49 U.S.C. 5338(a)(2)(B), authorizes FTA to PO 00000 Frm 00088 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 49175 award funds under the Pilot Program for Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Planning (TOD Pilot Program) through a competitive process, as described in this notice, to local communities to integrate land use and transportation planning with a new fixed guideway or core capacity improvement transit capital project as defined in Federal transit statute. (See section C of this NOFO for more information about eligibility.) As outlined in MAP–21, the TOD Pilot Program is intended to fund comprehensive planning that supports economic development, ridership, multimodal connectivity and accessibility, increased transit access for pedestrian and bicycle traffic, and mixed-use development near transit stations. The TOD Pilot Program also encourages identification of infrastructure needs and engagement with the private sector. Consistent with direction in MAP–21, FTA is seeking comprehensive planning projects covering an entire transit capital project corridor, rather than proposals that involve planning for individual station areas or only a small section of the corridor. To ensure any proposed planning work reflects the needs and aspirations of the local community and results in concrete, specific deliverables and outcomes, transit project sponsors must partner with entities with land use planning authority in the transit project corridor to conduct the planning work. B. Federal Award Information Federal transit law authorizes FTA to make grants for eligible comprehensive planning projects under Section 20005(b) of MAP–21, with funding authorized by 49 U.S.C. 5338(a)(2)(B). FTA intends to award all available funding to selected applicants responding to this NOFO. Only proposals from eligible recipients for eligible activities will be considered for funding. FTA anticipates minimum grant awards of $250,000 and maximum grant awards of $2,000,000. C. Eligibility Information 1. Eligible Applicants Applicants under the TOD Pilot Program must be FTA grantees (i.e., existing direct and designated recipients) as of the publication date of this NOFO. An applicant must either be the project sponsor of an eligible transit capital project as defined below in section C, subsection 3 or an entity with land use planning authority in an eligible transit capital project corridor. Except in cases where an applicant is both the sponsor of an eligible transit E:\FR\FM\18SEN1.SGM 18SEN1
