These authorities are codified in sections 104 and 126 of title 23, United States Code, as amended by the FAST Act. Transferability under the FAST Act is generally similar to that allowed under previous authorization acts such as the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP–21) and the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA–LU). This notice establishes requirements for initiating the transfer of apportioned funds (funds distributed among States and programs by statutory formula) to carry out these provisions of law. The types of transfers affected by this notice are: a. Transfer of funds from a State to the FHWA pursuant to U.S.C. Title 23, § 104(f)(3); b. Transfer of funds from a State to a Federal Agency other than FHWA; c. Transfer of funds from a State to another State; d. Transfer of funds from FHWA to Federal Transit Administration pursuant to U.S.C. Title 23, § 104(f)(1); e. Transfer of funds between programs pursuant to U.S.C. Title 23, § 126; and, f. Transfer of funds between projects. The State initiating the fund transfer must fill out a FHWA Funds Transfer Request form. This transfer form (FHWA–1575C) submitted for approval is similar to the currently approved transfer forms (FHWA–1575 and FHWA–1576) that have been utilized for the past five years. The main improvement is that this transfer form combines what were previously two forms (one for transfers within State or to another State and one for transfers to other agencies) into a single form. The new FHWA–1575C transfer form includes drop-down boxes that will allow States to select the type of transfer and other information. This new form will streamline that transfer request process for States by allowing them to use the single form for all types of transfers of apportioned funds rather than having to select the appropriate form. Information required to fill out a transfer form will include the requester’s contact information; a description of the program/project the transfer will come from and go to, the fiscal year, the program code, a demo ID or an urban area when applicable, and the amount to be transferred. The form must be approved by the applicable State Department of Transportation and concurred on by the correlating FHWA Division Office.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Title: Request Form for Fund Transfers to Other Agencies and Among 
Title 23 Programs.
    OMB Control Number: 2125-0620.
    Background: The Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, 
Public Law 114-94, continues the ability of States to transfer highway 
funds to other States and agencies and among programs/projects. These 
authorities are codified in sections 104 and 126 of title 23, United 
States Code, as amended by the FAST Act. Transferability under the FAST 
Act is generally similar to that allowed under previous authorization 
acts such as the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act 
(MAP-21) and the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation 
Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU). This notice establishes 
requirements for initiating the transfer of apportioned funds (funds 
distributed among States and programs by statutory formula) to carry 
out these provisions of law. The types of transfers affected by this 
notice are:
    a. Transfer of funds from a State to the FHWA pursuant to U.S.C. 
Title 23, Sec.  104(f)(3);
    b. Transfer of funds from a State to a Federal Agency other than 
FHWA;
    c. Transfer of funds from a State to another State;
    d. Transfer of funds from FHWA to Federal Transit Administration 
pursuant to U.S.C. Title 23, Sec.  104(f)(1);
    e. Transfer of funds between programs pursuant to U.S.C. Title 23, 
Sec.  126; and,
    f. Transfer of funds between projects.
    The State initiating the fund transfer must fill out a FHWA Funds 
Transfer Request form. This transfer form (FHWA-1575C) submitted for 
approval is similar to the currently approved transfer forms (FHWA-1575
