    Title: 49 U.S.C. 5308, Clean Fuels Grant Program.
    Abstract: The Section 5308 Clean Fuels Grant program was initiated 
as a formula program under the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st 
Century (TEA-21) in June 1998. The program was reauthorized in August 
2005 under the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation 
Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU) as a grant program. The 
program supports the development and deployment of clean fuel and 
advanced propulsion technologies for transit buses by providing funds 
for clean fuel vehicles and facilities. To meet program oversight 
responsibilities, FTA needs information on the operations and 
performance of clean fuel technology buses to help assess the 
reliability, benefits and costs of these technologies compared to 
conventional vehicle technologies.
    Respondents: State and local government and public transportation 
authorities located in areas designated as non-attainment or 
maintenance for ozone or carbon monoxide.
