To provide a forum to discuss the proposed revisions to the 9040 circular based on changes made to the rural program under the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21). The comment period is open until November 25, 2013.
On Thursday, September 26, 2013, FTA published the proposed Formula Grants for Rural Areas Circular: Guidance and Application Instruction for Notice and Comment. The purpose of this proposed circular is to provide recipients of FTA financial assistance with updated instructions and guidance on program administration and the grant application process. The proposed revisions to the existing circular are a result of changes made to the Formula Grants for Rural Areas Program by the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21). As a result of this notice FTA will host a webinar on the proposed circular.
FTA published a Preamble, which is a summary of the proposed changes to the circular in the Federal Register and information on how to submit comments to the docket. Available at https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2013/09/26/2013-23435/formula-grants-for-rural-areas-guidance-and-application-instructions.
