5309 Bus and Bus Facility Earmarks

Printer Friendly Number 2006-03

SUBJECT: 5309 Bus and Bus Facility Earmarks
PROGRAM AREAS: Grants; Legal
DATE: January 11, 2006

In the past, there has been some difficulty in processing Congressional earmarked grants due to uncertainty in who is the intended grantee. Consequently, we are asking you to take a minute and review the list of enclosed 5309 Bus and Bus Facility earmarks from the FY 2006 Appropriations to assist us with these identifications. If you believe that a particular earmark is intended for a party that is new to FTA (and we would not have them on our mailing list), we ask that you pass this Bulletin to them.

With your review of the attached list, please identify earmarks you believe are intended for your agency by checking in the "Requested this Earmark" in the column to the right of each earmark. Then, please sign (by your General Manager, Executive Director or other appropriate head of your agency), date and identify your organization at the bottom of the appropriate sheet. Please return the enclosure to the FTA Region 10 office at the above address. Please note ATTN:EARMARK on the envelope. Please also include a copy of any information submitted to Congress which states the purpose of the earmark.

Please note that these amounts shown in the attachment will be slightly reduced (approximately 1%) because of the recent rescission passed by Congress. A new Federal Register will be published soon with the correct amounts.

Finally, please understand that this correspondence is not a promise or obligation of the Government to award these grants. Full compliance with the Federal Transit Administration's grant process is still required. This Bulletin is intended merely as a tool to assist in that process.

If you have any questions, please contact your representative.
