The purpose of this message is to request applications for FY 2008 grant funding from the Transportation, Community, and System Preservation (TCSP) Program for projects identified by Congress. Section 1117 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU) reauthorized the TCSP Program through FY 2009.
The first attachment lists the projects identified by Congress under the TCSP 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 TCSP Program funding will also be reduced by the FY 2008 obligation limitation and/or any additional rescissions identified by Congress. Per Section 1117 of SAFETEA-LU, FY 2008 TCSP 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 would represent the applicable Federal share.
Please work with the local recipient to submit a TCSP Program grant application by March 31, 2008. To help us in preparing Congressional notification reports for the Office of the Secretary, please use the TCSP Program grant application [see the second attachment] to provide:
