REVISED APPORTIONMENT OF THE FISCAL YEAR (FY) 2002 MINIMUM GUARANTEE PROGRAM FUNDS black line

Classification Code Date OPI
N 4510.494 March 21, 2003 HABF-10

  1. What is the purpose of this Notice? This Notice transmits the revised certificate of apportionment of Minimum Guarantee Program funds authorized for FY 2002 pursuant to section 105(a) of title 23, United States Code (U.S.C.). The apportionment is effective immediately.


  2. Does this Notice cancel FHWA Notice 4510.475? Yes, this Notice cancels FHWA Notice 4510.475, Apportionment of Minimum Guarantee Program Funds, dated December 19, 2001. The revisions to the apportionment are required to reflect corrections to the FY 2002 Recreational Trails factor data. The corrected factor data adjusted the amount of funds distributed to the States for the FY 2002 Recreational Trails apportionment, which affects the Minimum Guarantee Program funds. The U.S. Comptroller General decisions require that incorrect apportionments need to be appropriately adjusted to assure compliance with the statutory formula for apportioning Federal highway funds enacted by Congress. See 41 Comptroller General 16 (1961).


  3. What is the availability of these funds?
    1. The Minimum Guarantee Program funds resulting from this apportionment are available for obligation until September 30, 2005. Any amounts not obligated by the State on or before September 30, 2005, shall lapse.


    2. The funds resulting from this apportionment are subject to obligation controls in force at the time of obligation. Special obligation limitation is provided with these funds. In addition, an amount of Minimum Guarantee Program funds is provided that is exempt from obligation controls.


    3. The revised apportionment of Minimum Guarantee Program funds (Table 1) has a de minimus impact on the FY 2002 Revenue Aligned Budget Authority (RABA), the requirements of title 23, U.S.C., section 154, the Open Container Requirements law, title 23, U.S.C., and section 164, the Minimum Penalties for Repeat Offenders law. No adjustments will be made to the FY 2002 RABA and the FY 2002 assessment of penalties. Tables 2 and 3 illustrates the amounts transferred under sections 154(c)(5) and 164(b)(5) respectively. Table 4 illustrates the total amounts transferred based on the States' designations.


    4. Supplementary tables providing sub-allocation, appropriation codes, Federal share, etc., will be issued in a separate Notice.

  4. What action is required? Division Administrators should ensure that copies of this Notice are provided to State departments of transportation.
