Our mission is to “improve public transportation for America’s communities” by administering Federal funding and providing technical assistance to support a variety of locally planned, constructed, and operated public transportation systems throughout the Southeastern Region.
We intend for the Region IV website to be a dynamic resource for our customers to keep current on real-time questions and answers regarding several exciting initiatives, some new and some we have been pursuing for several years. These initiatives include the DOT/HUD/EPA Sustainable Communities initiative which was initiated in June, 2010, and the Veterans Transportation and Community Living initiative, which was initiated in May, 2011. Both of these initiatives are essential to the operation of public transportation systems that meet the needs of our private citizens; our veterans; and the communities in which they both live.
For Fiscal Years (FY) 2012 and FY2013, the FTA will be preparing for the next appropriations legislation (MAP-21). For more details about MAP-21, please go to http://www.fta.dot.gov/map21/index.html, on this web site. We will also be working diligently to ensure that transit infrastructure projects are an essential component of the FY 2014 President’s Budget for public transportation, because these projects not only provide jobs for America’s unemployed, they also enhance the public transportation systems of transit agencies in the Southeast and across the Nation. Therefore, this is certainly a time of change and opportunity – let’s all commit ourselves to a successful Fiscal Year 2013 by doing all that we can to keep our economy moving and the American public mobile.
In FY 2012, Region IV awarded 423 grants and obligated $1,040,647,113. We could not have achieved this exceptional result without the incredible partnerships that we have with our key stakeholders. All of these grants were obligated in an average of only 23 calendar days after our receipt of a complete and accurate grant application. Once again, we could not have provided this extraordinary level of service without the incredible partnerships that we have with our key stakeholders.
As we prepare for a new fiscal year of change and opportunities, our commitment is to continue working closely with our customers, to foster open and transparent communications, and to provide clear guidance to ensure the success of critical projects so desperately needed across the Southeastern Region.
