This includes comments and data pertaining to current unmet needs in rural transportation, barriers rural communities face in addressing these transportation needs, stakeholders’ experiences with applying to and using DOT discretionary grant and credit programs, and opportunities for the DOT to improve its services and technical assistance to rural communities in relation to these grant and credit programs, within the limits of statutory requirements. The comment period for the RFI was set at 30 days, ending on December 27, 2019. In consideration of holiday schedules that may have impacted commenter’s ability to prepare comments during this period and in the interest of receiving a greater number of comments, DOT extends the public comment period until January 27, 2020.
