I. Overview

    Congress enacted an extension of FTA's current authorization, the 
Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient, Transportation Equity Act: A 
Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU), through September 30, 2011 in the 
Surface Transportation Extension Act, 2011 (Pub. L. 112-5). Since that 
time, Congress has also enacted the Department of Defense and Full-Year 
Continuing Appropriations Act, 2011 (Pub. L. 112-10), hereinafter 
``Appropriations Act, 2011,'' which sets an obligation limitation for 
Formula and Bus programs and funds other Federal transit programs of 
DOT through September 30, 2011. This Notice provides the remaining 
formula funds and full year appropriations for FTA discretionary 
programs.

II. FY 2011 Available Funding for FTA Programs

A. Funding Based on the Department of Defense and Full-Year Continuing 
Appropriations Act, 2011 (Pub. L. 112-10)

    The Appropriations Act, 2011 included a total of almost $10.3 
billion for FTA programs in obligation limitation of contract authority 
under the Mass Transit account (MTA) and new appropriations of general 
funds.
    In addition, in FY 2010, Congress appropriated an obligation 
limitation for the Formula and Bus programs that was slightly lower 
than the FY 2010 authorized contract authority for those programs 
creating a $17.39 million difference in FY 2010. This additional 
contract authority is now available and this Notice apportions these FY 
2010 funds to the Formula and Bus programs in addition to the FY 2011 
full year apportionment. See Section II of FTA's Supplemental Fiscal 
Year 2010 Apportionments and Allocations Federal Register Notice (FR 
May 13, 2010 Vol. 75, No. 92) for detailed information.
    New FY 2011 funding levels also reflect a $17.39 million difference 
between the authorized contract authority level and appropriated 
obligation limitation for Formula and Bus programs.
    For other programs, a .2 percent across-the-board rescission for 
appropriated funds applies as well. The rescission was applied to the 
budget authority provided for fiscal year 2011 for any discretionary 
account and the budget authority provided in any advance appropriation 
for fiscal year 2011 for discretionary accounts in any prior fiscal 
year appropriation Act. The rescission, however, does not affect 
contract authority or obligation limitation for Formula and Bus 
programs.

B. Morgantown, West Virginia Technical Correction

    In the course of preparing FTA's Fiscal Year 2010 supplemental 
apportionment tables, the fixed guideway direct route miles and vehicle 
revenue miles associated with the Morgantown, West Virginia urbanized 
area were inadvertently included in its Section 5307 Urbanized Area 
Formula program calculations. The resulting Section 5307 apportionment 
table published in FTA's Supplemental Fiscal Year 2010 Apportionments 
and Allocations Federal Register Notice (FR May 13, 2010 Vol. 75, No. 
92) displayed an allotment for the Morgantown, WV urbanized area that 
was $751,158 in excess of what the urbanized area should have received 
under the Section 5307 formula. FTA corrected the Morgantown 
apportionment record in its grants systems to limit Morgantown's 
allocation to what should have been received in FY 2010. With the 
publication of this notice, FTA apportions the $751,158 to those 
urbanized areas eligible to receive funds under the Fixed Guideway Tier 
of the Section 5307 program, in proportion to the formula factors of 
the Fixed Guideway Tier.

C. FY 2011 Discretionary Program Funds

    The Appropriations Act, 2011 did not include any project specific 
Congressional designations. Accordingly, FTA has $2.73 billion in 
discretionary funds available for allocation. It is FTA's intent to 
publish Notices of Funding Availability (NOFA) for most discretionary 
programs no later than early Fall 2011. The Major Capital Investment 
program, commonly referred to as the New Starts and Small Starts 
programs, will be excluded because the program has an ongoing project 
development and review process, and funding will be allocated 
consistent with information already available to FTA. Additionally, FTA 
plans to consolidate multiple programs into single discretionary 
solicitations of proposals that further specific Department of 
Transportation Strategic Goals, consistent with the approach used for 
FY 2010 funds.

    Issued in Washington, DC, this 13th day of May, 2011.

Administrator.
