REGION 10 Bulletins: 04-09 

PROGRAM AREA: Year End Grants Processing and Appropriations 

Year End Grants Processing:  The electronic grant system, TEAM, will shut down at 9 p.m. EDT on September 20.  September 20 is the last date that FTA can award a grant in this federal fiscal year ending September 30.  August 20 is the last day the FTA Region 10 office can submit any earmarked grant - New Starts, Bus, Jarc, ITS, 330 - to our headquarters office to go through the release process - and have any assurance the grant can be approved by September 20. 

Due to the large numbers of grantees that have not submitted grants for 2004 fiscal year funds, FTA is expecting a large number of grant submittals during this last quarter.  Many of these grants have not gone through Department of Labor (DOL) clearance and as a result, DOL will have an exceptional workload during this last quarter. Consequently, to accommodate all parties, the last day for grant submittals is as follows:

1.  Formula Grants (5307, 5309 Fixed Guideway, 5310, 5311, State Planning Grants)

 a.  Grants that have cleared DOL or are not required to go through DOL (Grants that have funds in Contingency and are amending grants to activate the remaining allotments, 5310, 5311, State Planning Grants)

  Last submittal day August 31

 b.  Grants that have NOT cleared DOL.

 Last submittal day July 15

2. Discretionary Grants (5309 Bus and New Starts, ITS, JARC, Section 330)

 a.  Grants that have cleared DOL or are not required to go through DOL (Grants that have funds in Contingency or the  whole project was approved by DOL - most New Start grants - and are amending grants to activate the remaining  allotments)

 Last submittal day August 31

 b.  Grants that have NOT cleared DOL.

 Last submittal day July 15.


Appropriations:  The FTA Administrator approved the supplemental Federal Register (FR) Notice making 9/12 of the FY 2004 appropriation available.  The Notice was published in the June 3 Federal Register with the tables.  The Notice may be accessed on our website under Government and Legal, Federal Register, 2004.  These funds are currently available in the TEAM system.  The revised tables are also attached. 

Please note that there will be minor downward changes to the 5307 Bus allocations which will be corrected when we receive our final allocations for the fiscal year. 

Due to the incremental funding under the Continuing Resolution and the processing timelines for TEAM, the June 3 register allotments are all the funding that will be available to you for this federal fiscal year.  As soon as we have any further information on the remaining 2004 fund availability for the final 3/12s we will let you know. 
 

Sincerely,

 

R. F. Krochalis
Regional Administrator
