In addition, the workshops will be used to research promising and effective practices that recipients have adopted to comply with civil rights requirements. The total available funding for this agreement is $250,000.

All potential applicants are advised to begin the Grants.gov registration process immediately, if they have not previously submitted Federal assistance applications through Grants.gov, in order to be able to meet the deadline. FTA expects to award funds through a cooperative agreement in February 2011 which will allow for a 1 ½ year execution of all phases of the project, including the final project report.
