ARRA Waiver Notice Page
Attention ARRA Grant Recipients with Unliquidated Balance
OMB published Memorandum M-11-34 on September 15, 2011. It directed federal agencies to have grantees outlay all ARRA funds by September 30, 2013. The Memorandum stated that federal agencies have until September 30, 2012 to submit waiver applications on behalf of their grantees.
We anticipate that some grantees may have difficulties in completing their projects or fully disbursing funds by the established deadline. FTA may allow grantees to apply for a waiver of this OMB requirement. Although application for a waiver does not imply that OMB will grant such waivers, we intend to use this page to disseminate information to ARRA grantees on the potential “Application for ARRA Waiver.”
