  1. What is the purpose of this Notice? This Notice is to notify States, as required by section 104(e) of title 23, United States Code (U.S.C.), of the anticipated amounts of funds to be apportioned under 23 U.S.C. 104, as amended by the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), Public Law 112-141, for FY 2014. It should be noted that the anticipated apportionment amounts are subject to change before issuing the certificate of apportionment, which is effective on October 1, 2013.

  2. What are the procedures for opting out of the recreational trails program set-aside?

    1. Section 213(f) of title 23, U.S.C., as amended by MAP-21, provides for a set-aside from each State's transportation alternatives funding for the recreational trails program. The amount of the set-aside is equal to each State's FY 2009 apportionment for the recreational trails program. Each State subject to the set-aside must return 1 percent of the set-aside funds to the Secretary for administration, and these States must also comply with the provisions for the administration of the recreational trails program under section 206 of title 23, U.S.C.

    2. Section 213(g) of title 23, U.S.C., as amended by MAP-21, allows a State to opt out of the recreational trails program set-aside. In order to opt out of the set-aside a State must inform the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) of its decision to opt out no later than 30 days prior to apportionments being made for a fiscal year. Since apportionments for FY 2014 will be effective on October 1, 2013, a State must make notification of its decision to opt out by September 1, 2013. Any State that desires to opt out of the recreational trails program set-aside shall notify FHWA via e-mail, with a letter signed by the Governor or the Governor's designee accompanying the opt-out notification, to the FHWA Office of Budget's official mailbox (BudDiv@dot.gov) no later than September 1, 2013. Note that failure to affirmatively opt out by the deadline will result in the recreational trails set-aside being applied to a State's transportation alternatives funding.

  3. Are certain States subject to potential withholdings or transfers? Yes. Currently, the States that are listed under the following requirements are subject to potential withholdings or transfers on October 1, 2013.

    1. Use of Safety Belts and Motorcycle Helmets – 23 U.S.C. 153

      Funds subject to 2 percent transfer to the State's Safety Program under 23 U.S.C. 402: National Highway Performance Program (NHPP), Surface Transportation Program (STP), and Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP).

      New Hampshire

    2. Open Container Requirements – 23 U.S.C. 154

      Funds subject to 2.5 percent transfer to the State's Safety Program under 23 U.S.C. 402 or use for HSIP under 23 U.S.C. 148: NHPP and STP.

      Alaska, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Puerto Rico*, North Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wyoming

      Note: To avoid a transfer on October 1, 2013, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) must receive from the State by September 30, 2013, a certificate and laws that conform to 23 U.S.C. 154 programs implementing regulations.

    3. National Minimum Drinking Age – 23 U.S.C. 158

      Funds subject to 8 percent withholding: NHPP and STP

      Puerto Rico*

    4. Repeat Offenders – 23 U.S.C. 164

      Funds subject to 2.5 percent transfer to the State's Safety Program under 23 U.S.C. 402 or use for HSIP under 23 U.S.C. 148: NHPP and STP.

      Alaska, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Puerto Rico*, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, Washington, and Wyoming

      Note: To avoid a transfer on October 1, 2013, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) must receive from the State by September 30, 2013, a certificate and laws that conform to 23 U.S.C. 164 programs implementing regulations.

  4. Are there obligation controls? Yes. The obligation limitation associated with the funds transferred pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 153, 23 U.S.C. 154, and 23 U.S.C. 164 is subject to obligation controls in force at the time of the transfer.

  5. What are the anticipated FY 2014 apportionments? The following table shows the FY 2014 anticipated apportionment amounts effective on October 1, 2013. The table shows the anticipated apportionments of NHPP, STP, HSIP, Railway-Highway Crossings Program, Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program, and Metropolitan Planning Program.

  6. What action is required?

    1. Division Administrators must ensure that this Notice is provided to State departments of transportation.

    2. A State shall notify FHWA no later than September 1, 2013, of any decision to opt out of the recreational trails set-aside.


* Puerto Rico highway program funds are no longer apportioned. Section 165 of title 23, U.S.C., states that, for the purpose of imposing penalties, such funds will be treated as being apportioned under 23 U.S.C. 104(b) and 144 (as in effect for FY 1997) in the same proportions as Puerto Rico’s FY 1997 apportionments. Funds treated as being apportioned for the national highway system, STP, and Interstate maintenance program shall be deemed to have been apportioned 50 percent for NHPP and 50 percent for STP.
