The full text of the original RFI follows: The Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST), enacted in December 2015, authorized the establishment of a Regional Infrastructure Accelerator Demonstration Program (the Program) to assist entities in developing improved infrastructure priorities and financing strategies for the accelerated development of a project that is eligible for funding under the Transportation Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (TIFIA) Program. The Further Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020 enacted on December 20, 2019 appropriated $5 million for this Program. DATES: Responses to this RFI are due no later than 11:59 p.m. 30 days after publication of this notice. The Bureau may hold an RFI information session(s) before the due date. ADDRESSES: All responses MUST be submitted electronically via email to the Bureau at ria@dot.gov. Questions regarding the RFI may be submitted to the Bureau at ria@dot.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For further information regarding this RFI please contact Sam Beydoun via email at sam.beydoun@dot.gov or via telephone at 202–366–2300. A TDD is available at 202–366–3993. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Build America Bureau (the Bureau) of the U.S. Department of Transportation (Department or DOT) is seeking input from interested parties with the intent to gather as much information as possible before implementing the Program. The Bureau is issuing this RFI on the most effective, transparent and expedient way to implement the Program. Information gleaned from this effort will help inform the development of the Program and approach to designating and funding Regional Infrastructure Accelerators that will: (1) Serve a defined geographic area; and (2) act as a resource to qualified entities in the geographic area in accordance with Section 1441 of the FAST Act. Background The Bureau is responsible for driving transportation infrastructure development projects in the United States through innovative financing programs. Its mission is to provide access to the Bureau’s credit programs in a streamlined, expedient and transparent manner. In accomplishing its mission, the Bureau also provides technical assistance and encourages innovative best practices in project planning, financing, delivery, and PO 00000 Frm 00095 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 monitoring. The Bureau draws upon the full resources of the Department of Transportation to best utilize the expertise of the Department’s Operating Administrations while promoting a culture of innovation and customer service. The Transportation Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act of 1998 1 established a Federal credit program (TIFIA Program) for eligible transportation projects under which the Department may provide three forms of credit assistance—secured (direct) loans, loan guarantees, and standby lines of credit. The TIFIA Program’s fundamental goal is to leverage federal funds by attracting substantial private and other non-Federal co-investment to support critical improvements to the Nation’s surface transportation system. Eligible recipients of TIFIA credit assistance include State departments of transportation, transit operators, special authorities, local governments and private entities. Demonstration Program Section 1441 of the FAST Act (https:// www.transportation.gov/buildamerica/ programs-and-services/regionalinfrastructure-accelerators) authorizes the Program to assist in developing improved infrastructure priorities and financing strategies for the accelerated development of eligible projects. It is envisioned that Regional Infrastructure Accelerator(s) will act as a resource and help facilitate delivery of projects within a designated geographic region while promoting investment in covered infrastructure projects. The Further Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020 appropriated $5 million to carry out the Program. The goal of this RFI is to engage interested parties to obtain input into the most effective, transparent and expedient ways to structure and deliver the Program. Respondents to this RFI are encouraged to provide related information and answers to one or more of the following: Structure (1) What would be an effective form of the accelerator that could influence the development of infrastructure projects, and what type of structure and authority would be required for the establishment of a regional accelerator? Are there examples of such entities from around the country and abroad, or in other sectors that could be used as a model for the Program? (2) What barriers such as regulatory, technical and institutional (public or 1 Codified E:\FR\FM\31MRN1.SGM as 23 U.S.C. 601–609. 31MRN1
