The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) annually publishes one or more notices apportioning funds appropriated by law. In some cases, if less than a full year of funds is available; FTA publishes multiple partial apportionment notices. This notice is the first notice announcing partial apportionment for programs funded with Fiscal Year (FY) 2012 contract authority because the current authorization of FTA’s programs provides contract authority for the period October 1, 2011 through March 31, 2012.

Additionally, the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2012, provides full-year funding for FTA’s programs funded from the General Fund of the United States Treasury, which are Administrative Expenses, the New Starts and Research programs and grants to the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority.

The Appropriations Act, 2012 also provides an obligation limitation for the available contract authority and any additional contract authority that Congress may make available this fiscal year. This notice also provides program guidance and requirements; and provides information on several program issues important under the current program authorization. Also included are tables that show certain discretionary program unobligated (carryover) and reapportioned funding from previous years available for obligation during FY 2012.

The notice with tables can be found at http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2012-01-11/pdf/2012-249.pdf.
