The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 includes significant new funding for transportation. The detailing, timing, and funding levels of the legislation are explained on the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) Web site http://www.fta.dot.gov/index_9118.html and in a shared presentation available at http://www.fta.dot.gov/documents/ARRA_02_13_09.ppt.

FTA has posted the preliminary apportionments for the formula funds appropriated by the ARRA. FTA is not publishing decisions or requirements related to the three discretionary programs identified in the ARRA at this time. These formula apportionment tables will be published in final form in March 2009 when the Federal Register publishes FTA’s Notice containing the tables as well as application instructions for our grantees.

While the following dollar amounts are preliminary, they reflect the agency’s best efforts at calculating the formula allocations of our statute and the ARRA. Once we complete a final quality control review, the numbers will be incorporated into our Federal Register Notice and sent to the Federal Register for publication. The preliminary apportionment tables maybe found at http://www.fta.dot.gov/index_9118.html.

Don’t forget to also register for automatic updates on ARRA information and guidance on this Web site. For further information, contact Region 10’s Rebecca Reyes-Alicea at (206) 220-7965 or email rebecca.reyesalicea@dot.gov.
