|Subject:||ACTION: Solicitation of TCSP Program Grant Applications for FY 2010
|From:||Robert Bini, Program Coordinator for Planning, Environment, and Realty|
|Date:||January 16, 2010|
|Reply to Attn. of:||HEP-2|
TO THE ATTENTION OF: FHWA Division Office Transportation, Community, and System Preservation Program Contacts
The purpose of this message is to request applications for FY 2010 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), as extended, authorizes the TCSP Program through February 28, 2010.
The first attachment lists the projects identified by Congress under the TCSP Program in FY 2010. These projects were referenced in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2010 and specifically listed in the Joint Explanatory Statement accompanying the Act. Please note that the amounts listed are those in the appropriation language, but because we only have a partial year authorization, these full amounts may not be available. In addition, the TCSP Program funding is expected to be reduced by a FY 2010 obligation limitation. The final award amounts are to be determined. Per Section 1117 of SAFETEA-LU, FY 2010 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 pending further authorization and obligation limitation.
Please work with the local recipient to submit a TCSP Program grant application by March 31, 2010 to Wesley Blount at email@example.com or to Gary Jensen at firstname.lastname@example.org. 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:
- Information sufficient for us to identify the project and expected results;
- Information about the work to be performed sufficient for us to compare it to the appropriations language;
- Information about the eligibility of the project; and
- Primary contact information for each project.
If you have any questions regarding the Transportation, Community, and System Preservation Program, please contact Wesley Blount at email@example.com or 202-366-0799 or Gary Jensen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-366-2048.
