How to apply...
Application for a grant should be addressed to the appropriate Regional Office of the Federal Transit Administration. FTA Circular 8100.1B dated October 25, 1996, Program Guidance and Application Instructions for Metropolitan Planning Grants, provides detailed application information. Available on Internet at: http://www.fta.dot.gov./legal/guidance/circulars /8000/429_5943_ENG_HTML.htm. States may apply through a paperless electronic grant application, review, approval, acceptance, and management process. This program is excluded from coverage under 49 CFR Part 19.
Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.
FTA will approve and release the grant by the end of the quarterly cycle or earlier provided the application is complete.
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
