The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) has placed in the docket and on its website, proposed guidance, in the form of a circular, to assist recipients in their implementation of the section 5307 Urbanized Area Formula Program. The purpose of this proposed circular is to provide recipients of FTA financial assistance with instructions and guidance on program administration and the grant application process.

By this notice, FTA invites public comment on the proposed circular.
