AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.
ACTION: Notice; request for comments on program implementation in FY 2000 and beyond; request for letters of intent for FY 1999 planning and implementation grants.
SUMMARY: This document provides implementation guidance on section 1221 of the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21), Pub. L. 105-178, 112 Stat. 107 (1998), which establishes the Transportation and Community and System Preservation Pilot Program (TCSP). The TCSP provides funding for planning grants, implementation grants, and research to investigate and address the relationship between transportation and community and system preservation. The States, local governments, and metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) are eligible for discretionary grants to plan and implement strategies which improve the efficiency of the transportation system, reduce environmental impacts of transportation, reduce the need for costly future public infrastructure investments, ensure efficient access to jobs, services and centers of trade, and examine development patterns and identify strategies to encourage private sector development patterns which achieve these goals.
Through the TCSP, the States, local governments, and MPOs will implement and evaluate current preservation practices and activities that support these practices, as well as develop new, innovative approaches. Funding for the TCSP is $20 million in FY 1999 and $25 million per year for FYs 2000 through 2003. The FHWA seeks public comments from all interested parties regarding implementation of the TCSP in FY 2000 and beyond, and letters of intent from potential grantees for FY 1999 funding.

Section 1221 of the TEA-21 establishes the TCSP. The Department of Transportations Strategic Plan (1997-2003) includes a series of goals related to safety, mobility and access, economic growth and trade, enhancement of communities and the natural environment, and national security. The TCSP pilot program relates to each of these goals and provides funding for planning grants, implementation grants, and research to investigate and address the relationship between transportation and community and system preservation. By funding innovative activities at the neighborhood, local, metropolitan, State and regional level, the program is intended to increase the knowledge of the costs and benefits of different approaches to integrating transportation investments, community preservation, land development patterns and environmental protection. It will enable communities to investigate and address the relationship among these many factors.
This notice includes three sections: Section I Notice of Program Implementation; Section II Requests for Letters of Intent for FY 1999; and Section III Request for comments.
The TCSP provides funding for planning grants, implementation grants and research to investigate and address the relationship between transportation and community and system preservation. States, local governments and metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) are eligible for discretionary grants to plan and implement strategies which improve the efficiency of the transportation system, reduce environmental impacts of transportation, reduce the need for costly future public infrastructure investments, ensure efficient access to jobs, services and centers of trade, and examine development patterns and identify strategies to encourage private sector development patterns which achieve these goals. Through the TCSP, States, local governments, and MPOs will implement and evaluate current preservation practices and activities that support these practices, as well as develop new, innovative approaches.
The activities and research funded under this program will develop, implement and evaluate transportation strategies that support transportation and community and system preservation practices. The program will demonstrate transportation strategies that incorporate the short- and long-term environmental, economic, and social equity needs of communities. Examples of current preservation practices include policies to direct spending to high growth regions; establishment of urban growth boundaries to guide metropolitan expansion; and designation of green corridors that provide access to major highway corridors for efficient and compact development. In addition, it may include preservation practices that are necessary to implement transit oriented development plans, traffic calming measures and other coordinated transportation and community and system preservation activities. The size, scope and number of grants funded under TCSP will be dependent on the proposals received. The FHWA anticipates that in the first year of the program there may be 20 to 30 grants.
Outreach and cooperation
The DOT is establishing this program in cooperation with other Federal agencies, State, regional, and local governments. To prepare the initial design and implementation of this program, and to review and evaluate grant applications for the Secretary of Transportation, the FHWA is administering this program and has established a working group with representatives from the Federal Transit Administration, Federal Railroad Administration, Research and Special Programs Administration/Volpe Center, Office of the Secretary of Transportation, and the Environmental Protection Agency. The working group is gathering input through this notice and through meetings with stakeholders conducted as part of DOT's outreach activities following the passage of the TEA-21. For ongoing input into the development and priorities for the program, the working group is considering workshops with grantees and stakeholders and further Federal Register notices to announce subsequent rounds of grant funding. In addition, section 5107 of TEA-21 requires the establishment of an advisory board under the Surface Transportation- Environment Cooperative Research Program. This board of scientists, engineers, and State and local agencies may, when it is established in the future, provide another opportunity to gather ongoing input for the development of the program.
The TCSP includes a comprehensive research program to investigate the relationships between transportation, community preservation, and the environment, and to investigate the role of the private sector in shaping such relationships. The research program also includes monitoring and analysis of projects carried out under the grant program.
The goal of the research program is to build a knowledge base of work in this field that will enable State, regional and local government agencies, the private sector and neighborhood groups, through transportation activities, to help shape communities that meet current and long term environmental, social equity, and economic goals. With coordination and input from its partners and stakeholders, the FHWA will identify and initiate needed research to support the purposes of the TCSP. The research program is integral to TCSP, and it will support and complement the activities conducted through planning and implementation grants. Likewise, applied research activities that may be a part of a grant activity would be beneficial to the research program.
This notice requests comments and suggestions on the research program but does not solicit specific research proposals. The DOT anticipates that most of the TCSP will be allocated for planning and implementation grants and that limited funding will be available for research. The research may be conducted through cooperative agreements with organizations, contract support, or through State, local and MPO grants.
The DOT proposes to concentrate research activities in five areas:
Planning and Implementation Grants Program
The TCSP will provide grants for planning activities and for implementation activities. Planning grants are intended to help States, local governments, and MPOs begin to initiate transportation, community and system preservation activities in partnership with non-governmental organizations. Implementation grantsare intended to support States, local governments, and MPOs (and their non-governmental partners) that have already initiated community preservation programs and policies. These grants will fund innovative transportation and planning activities, which are carried out as part of a cooperative, continuing and comprehensive transportation planning process, to meet these goals.
Activities eligible for TCSP funding include activities eligible for Federal highway and transit funding (title 23, U.S.C., or Chapter 53 of title 49, U.S.C.) or other activities determined by the Secretary to be appropriate. However, where possible, grants will be awarded for new and innovative activities that are eligible but remain unfunded under the current Federal-aid program.
State agencies, metropolitan planning organizations and units of local governments that are recognized by a State are eligible recipients of TCSP grant funds. This would include towns, cities, public transit agencies, air resources boards, school boards, and park districts but not neighborhood groups or developers. Non- governmental organizations that have projects they wish to see funded under this program are encouraged to partner with an eligible recipient as the project sponsor.
An MPO may be both a project sponsor and endorse other activities proposed and submitted by a local government within its metropolitan boundary. An MPO or State may consider packaging related activities for submittal as one larger grant request.
Purposes and Criteria of the TCSP Grant Program
Activities funded under TCSP must address and integrate each of the purposes of the program listed below. If a proposal does not address one or more purposes, the applicant must clearly state why each purpose was not addressed. Priority will be given to those proposals which clearly and comprehensively meet and integrate the greatest number of purposes and are likely to produce successful results. How well proposed projects achieve each of these purposes will be a principal criterion in selecting proposals for funding.
Grant proposals must address how proposed activities will meet all of the following:
Proposals for TCSP activities should identify, develop and evaluate new strategies and measures of transportation efficiency that are based on maximizing the use of existing community infrastructure, such as highways, railroads, transit systems and the built environment. Performance measures should include a focus on people and access rather than cars or goods carried, and services provided rather than miles traveled.
Proposals for TCSP activities should explore the long term direct and indirect social, economic and environmental impacts of transportation investments on the natural and built environment. Performance measures should relate the results of individual activities to the larger community and regional environment and the transportation system.
Proposals for TCSP activities should describe how they will reduce the need for costly future public infrastructure investment and/or create tools and techniques to measure these savings over the life cycle of the activities. Performance measures should include projected life cycle savings obtained through avoided future investments or maintenance.
Proposals for TCSP activities should clearly demonstrate how they improve efficient, affordable access to jobs, services and centers of trade, including for disadvantaged groups. This could also include the use of new technologies to reduce the need to travel. Performance measures should include improved access to jobs and services, and improved freight movements.
Proposals for TCSP activities should identify effective strategies to encourage private sector investments that result in land development patterns that help meet the goals of this pilot program. Performance measures should demonstrate and monitor changes in development patterns and private sector investment trends or opportunities resulting from TCSP-related activities.
Priorities for all grants
In addition to the items listed above, applications for planning and implementation grants will also be evaluated based on a number of factors:
Additional Planning Grant Information
Planning assistance under the TCSP is intended to provide financial resources to States and communities to explore integrating their transportation programs with community preservation and environmental activities. Grants will be awarded for planning activities that will achieve this integration, meet the purposes of the program described above and are innovative. This may include, for example, public and private involvement activities; improving conditions for bicycling and walking; better and safer operation of existing roads, signals and transit systems; development of new types of transportation financing and land-use alternatives; development of new programs and tools to measure success; and the creation of new planning tools and policies necessary to implement TCSP-related initiatives.
Additional Implementation Grant Criteria
Implementation grants under the TCSP are intended to provide financial resources to State, local governments, and MPOs to enable them to carry out activities that address transportation efficiency while meeting community preservation and environmental goals. Examples of such policies or programs include:
Implementation activities may include community preservation activities to implement transit-oriented development plans, traffic calming measures or other coordinated transportation and community and system preservation practices.
Priority will be given to applicants that have already instituted preservation or development programs and policies that:
Implementation grants will help carry out the results of planning activities that may have been funded by planning grants under this same program. In future years of the TCSP, applicants who have completed activities using planning grants will be encouraged to apply for implementation grants. We expect the results of an implementation grant to affect the way new projects are designed and constructed in the future.
Every proposal funded under the planning and implementation grant programs must include a description of the applicants plans for monitoring and analysis of the grant activity and for providing the results of such monitoring and analysis to the FHWA. This information is necessary to provide an opportunity for the Department of Transportation, States, MPOs and local governments to learn more about the practical implications of integrating land development, transportation and environmental decision making.
The measures used to evaluate project results should be based on the goals and objectives of the project. In addition to individual project evaluations, an overall program evaluation will be conducted under the research component of the program described above.
Developing measures to determine the results of the projects is difficult and there is no general consensus on operative measures. The FHWA, the FTA and other Federal partners will work with grantees to develop and test measures. Methods to measure and evaluate current and future performance may include, for example:
Relationship of the TCSP to the Transportation Planning Process
The TCSP will complement, improve and enhance the Statewide and MPO planning process created by Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 (ISTEA), Pub.L. 102-240, 105 Stat.1914, and refined by TEA-21. This process promotes the ongoing, cooperative and active involvement of the public, transportation providers, public interest groups, and State, metropolitan and local government agencies in the development of statewide and metropolitan transportation plans and improvement programs (23 CFR part 450).
The DOT fully supports this planning process, which has brought diverse constituencies and government agencies together, and views the TCSP activities as a logical step in the continuing improvement of transportation planning at the State and regional level. In particular, the TCSP can help broaden the scope and impact of the planning process to better integrate land development planning, environmental goals and objectives, economic development, social equity considerations, and other private sector activities. The integration of interest groups, investors and developers through partnering with government applicants is a goal of the program. The TCSP activities will also consider incorporation of much longer planning horizons and consider the impacts on future generations.
Activities funded by this program may be used to test or implement new, innovative planning methods and programs that significantly enhance the existing Statewide and MPO transportation planning processes. The TCSP funds are intended to leverage new transportation and community preservation initiatives rather than to fund the ongoing planning activities of States and MPOs. The TCSP-funded activities must demonstrate coordination with the State and/or MPO to ensure the planning process is not circumvented. In addition, activities should encourage and improve public involvement in the overall planning process as well as in the individual project.
Construction projects funded by the TCSP will ultimately be included in an approved State or MPO Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The TCSP funds should not be requested for projects that have already been scheduled for funding and are in the current State or MPO TIP. Highway and transit projects which either use Federal funds or require Federal approvals, and are in air quality non attainment or maintenance areas, must be included in an air quality conformity analysis required as part of the transportation planning process. Because TCSP projects may target improved air quality as part of their broader goals, documentation of the beneficial air quality impacts of the project will be important.
Non-construction activities funded by the TCSP, such as the development of regional plans and policies, project evaluations and land development code changes, may not need to appear in a Statewide or MPO TIP, but should still have the support or endorsement of the State or MPO. Non-construction activities may result in changes to existing State and MPO plans and therefore need coordination with other jurisdictions within a metropolitan region or State.
To lessen the burden on potential grantees in the first round of funding, the DOT is requesting that interested State, metropolitan and local governments submit Letters of Intent (LOI) to apply for either a planning or an implementation grant for FY 1999. (Proposals for research are not being solicited.) From these LOIs, the DOT will select approximately 50 applicants who will be asked to prepare a more detailed grant request for further consideration. We anticipate making final decisions on awards early in the calendar year.
Although a single activity or proposal should not be submitted for both planning and implementation grants, applicants may apply for both planning and implementation grants for different activities. Funding is limited to a maximum of $20 million in FY 1999 and competition for those funds is expected to be high. There is no predetermined balance between planning and implementation grants to be awarded in FY 1999. Grants may be spent over a period of up to two years but no commitment can be made for second or subsequent years of grant awards. Thus, phased projects must stand alone and be capable of being implemented and producing results in each phase.
Contents of LOIs
An LOI should be approximately four pages long and should follow the sample format in the attachment to this notice. Letters from partners demonstrating their commitment to the project may be attached to the LOI. The LOI should briefly describe how the activity would addresses each of the purposes of the program and the specific criteria for planning or implementation grants. Applicants should also show public involvement, non-traditional partners and private sector participation in their project.
The DOT is particularly interested in supporting projects that are ready to begin and have plans to collect and document results that can be shared with others quickly. The LOI should highlight when the proposal would be initiated and when results are expected.
Schedule and Administrative Processes
There are several options for the administration of grants under TCSP. The FHWA has established financial management systems with the State Departments of Transportation and anticipates that most TCSP grants will be channeled through this established process. However, if another process such as a cooperative agreement or grant through another eligible agency (e.g., a public transit agency) is preferred, the applicant can work with the appropriate FHWA Division Office to develop a different funding mechanism.
An applicant should send five (5) copies of the LOI to the FHWA Division Office in the State in which the project is located within 60 days from the date of this notice. The FHWA, with the multi-agency working group described under the caption Outreach and Cooperation will recommend to the Secretary the applicants who will be asked to develop full proposals. The FHWA anticipates issuing a notice requesting FY 2000 applications in March 1999. The time line for FY 1999 applications for TCSP and a proposed time line for FY 2000 follows.
Questions about the grant program should be directed to either the FHWA Division Office or FTA Regional Office in the State in which the applicant is located.

The TCSP is a new initiative in the transportation field and may still be unfamiliar. Consequently, the DOT is seeking comments on a wide range of questions related to the administration of the program; the size, scope and nature of projects that should be supported by the program; the role of TCSP-related activities in the planning process; and the appropriate balance between research, planning and implementation activities funded as part of the initiative. The comments and suggestions received from interested parties to this notice and other outreach activities, as well as the experience gained from the first round of grant applications, will help define the program for FY 2000 and beyond. The Department is seeking comments on the following questions, as well as on other issues relating to the implementation of the TCSP.
