Solicitation of DRTDP Program Grant Applications for FY 2008

To view PDF files, you need the Acrobat® Reader®.

The purpose of this message is to request applications for FY 2008 grant funding from the Delta Region Transportation Development (DRTDP) Program for projects identified by Congress. Section 1308 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU) authorized the DRTDP Program through FY 2009.

The first (Attachment | Attachment PDF format (12 KB)) lists the projects identified by Congress under the DRTDP Program in FY 2008. These projects were referenced in the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2008 and specifically listed in the Joint Explanatory Statement accompanying the Act. The DRTDP Program funding will also be reduced by the FY 2008 obligation limitation and/or any additional rescissions identified by Congress. Per Section 1308 of SAFETEA-LU, FY 2008 DRTDP Program projects are subject to eligibility requirements, and a matching requirement with a federal share of 80 percent or subject to the sliding scale [23 USC 120(b)]. The amounts identified in the first attachment represent the applicable Federal share.

Please work with the State to submit a DRTDP Program grant application by March 31, 2008. To help us in preparing Congressional notification reports for the Office of the Secretary, please use the DRTDP Program grant application [see the second (Attachment | Attachment PDF format (18 KB))] to provide:

  1. Information sufficient for us to identify the project and expected results,
  2. Information about the work to be performed sufficient for us to compare it to the appropriations language
