Dear Transit Colleague:

 

FTA issued a Federal Register publication on February 26, 2008 concerning the National Rural Transportation Assistance Program Request for Proposals.  This solicitation is for proposals from not-for-profit entities with rural transit and technical assistance expertise for a cooperative agreement to develop and implement a National Rural Transportation Assistance Program (RTAP).  The entity or entities selected will manage a National technical assistance program that improves and enhances the coordination of Federal resources for rural transportation.  The major goal of the National RTAP is to assist States and local communities in the expansion and provision of rural public transportation.  Proposals must be submitted electronically by April 11, 2008.
 
The publication is included as an attachment to this email or it can be retrieved at http://edocket.access.gpo.gov/2008/pdf/E8-3604.pdf .  You may also access this notice by going to the FTA Website at http://www.fta.dot.gov/ and click on the link to Legislation, Regulations & Guidance.
