Congress enacted an extension of the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) current authorization, the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient, Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA–LU), through September 30, 2011 in the Surface Transportation Extension Act, 2011 (Pub. L. 112–5). Since that time, Congress has also enacted the Department of Defense and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2011 (Pub. L. 112–10), hereinafter “Appropriations Act, 2011,” which sets an obligation limitation for Formula and Bus programs and funds other Federal transit programs of DOT through September 30, 2011. This Notice provides the remaining formula funds and full year appropriations for FTA discretionary programs.

The Appropriations Act, 2011 included a total of almost $10.3 billion for FTA programs in obligation limitation of contract authority under the Mass Transit account (MTA) and new appropriations of general funds. In addition, in FY 2010, Congress appropriated an obligation limitation for the Formula and Bus programs that was slightly lower than the FY 2010 authorized contract authority for those programs creating a $17.39 million difference in FY 2010. This additional contract authority is now available and this Notice apportions these FY 2010 funds to the Formula and Bus programs in addition to the FY 2011 full year apportionment. See Section II of FTA’s Supplemental Fiscal Year 2010 Apportionments and Allocations Federal Register Notice (FR May 13, 2010 Vol. 75, No. 92) for detailed information, see above.

The Appropriations Act, 2011 did not include any project specific Congressional designations. Accordingly, FTA has $2.73 billion in discretionary funds available for allocation. It is FTA’s intent to publish Notices of Funding Availability (NOFA) for most discretionary programs no later than early Fall 2011. The Major Capital Investment program, commonly referred to as the New Starts and Small Starts programs, will be excluded because the program has an ongoing project development and review process, and funding will be allocated consistent with information already available to FTA. Additionally, FTA plans to consolidate multiple programs into single discretionary solicitations of proposals that further specific Department of Transportation Strategic Goals, consistent with the approach used for FY 2010 funds.

The full supplemental Federal Register may be found at the beginning of this bulletin notice.
