State of Good Repair Bus and Bus Facilities Discretionary Program 
Funds

AGENCY: Federal Transit Administration (FTA), DOT.

ACTION: State of Good Repair Bus and Bus Facilities program 
announcement of project selections.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The U.S. Department of Transportation's (DOT) Federal Transit 
Administration (FTA) announces the selection of projects funded with 
Section 5309 Bus and Bus Facilities program funds in support of the 
State of Good Repair (SGR) Initiative, which was announced in the State 
of Good Repair Initiative Notice of Funding Availability on May 4, 
2010. The SGR Initiative makes funds available to public transit 
providers to finance capital projects to replace, rehabilitate, and 
purchase buses and related equipment and to construct bus-related 
facilities, including programs of bus and bus-related projects for 
assistance to subrecipients that are public agencies, private companies 
engaged in public transportation, or private non-profit organizations. 
Additionally, the SGR Initiative makes funds available for Transit 
Asset Management systems, which is a systematic process of operating, 
maintaining, improving, and expanding physical assets effectively 
throughout their life cycles.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Successful and unsuccessful applicants 
should contact the appropriate FTA Regional office (Appendix) for 
specific information regarding applying for the funds or proposal 
specific questions. For general program information on the Bus and Bus 
Facilities program, contact Kimberly Sledge, Office of Program 
Management, at (202) 366-2053, e-mail: kimberly.sledge@dot.gov, or

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A total of $776,474,305 was available for 
FTA's SGR Initiative. A total of 422 applicants requested $4.06 
billion, indicating significant demand for funds. Project proposals 
were evaluated based on the criteria detailed in the May 4, 2010 Notice 
of Funding Availability. The projects selected and shown in Table 1 
will provide funds to help maintain the nation's public transportation 
bus fleet, infrastructure, and equipment in a state of good repair.
    Grantees selected for competitive discretionary funding under the 
SGR Initiative should work with their FTA regional office (Appendix) to 
finalize the application in FTA's Transportation Electronic Award 
Management system, (TEAM) so that funds can be obligated expeditiously. 
Funds must be used for projects detailed in the proposal and for the 
purposes specified in the project descriptions in the table. A 
discretionary project identification number has been assigned to each 
project for tracking purposes and must be used in the TEAM application. 
Selected projects have pre-award authority as of October 4, 2010. Post-
award reporting requirements include submission of the Federal 
Financial Report (FFR) and Milestone Report in TEAM as appropriate (see 
FTA.C.5010.1D).
    The grantee must comply with all applicable Federal statutes, 
regulations, executive orders, FTA circulars, and other Federal 
administrative requirements in carrying out the project supported by 
the FTA grant. Funds allocated in this announcement must be obligated 
in a grant by September 30, 2013.
