Priority for space will be given to those grantees scheduled for a State Management Review in 2014.
Each workshop will be conducted by transit professionals who are reviewers for the FTA's SMR program. The instructors will provide guidance in each of the areas to be reviewed, answer questions and share industry best practices. Staff from the FTA Regional Office will also attend the workshop to answer questions about the SMR, assist grantees in any area related to their FTA grant program, and refer to printed guidelines or other resources should you require additional information.†
