Background on Annual Apportionments & Allocations

Each year Congress passes legislation which, when signed by the President, appropriates funds for the Department of Transportation and related agencies. After this legislation is enacted, FTA publishes a Notice in the Federal Register which provides an overview of the apportionments and allocations based on these funds for the various Federal Transit Administration programs as well as statements of policy and guidance on public transit administration. The pages on this web page contain the current and prior fiscal year apportionments for each grant program. Additional past years’ apportionments are available for viewing in the Archived Apportionments page.

On January 17, 2014, President Obama signed the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2014 (Pub. L. 113-76) into law, providing a full fiscal year of funding for FTA’s programs as authorized by MAP-21. Prior to January 17, 2014, Congress provided partial funding for FY 2014 through continuing resolutions (Pub. L. 113-46 and Pub. L. 113-73). This notice apportions formula funds based on the Appropriations Act, 2014. In addition, this notice provides funding information for FTA’s FY 2014 discretionary programs, including the FY 2014 Capital Investment Grant (CIG) Program allocations and prior year discretionary programs and their unobligated balances. Finally, this notice provides program information, including the status of MAP-21 implementation for many of the grant programs.
