Of such amount, $250,000,000 shall be set aside for construction of the Appalachian Development Highway System (ADHS) as authorized under Section 1069(y) of Pub. L. 102-240. This Notice transmits the certificate of apportionment for HIP funds for construction of the ADHS as authorized under Section 1069(y) of Pub. L. 102-240. The apportionment is effective immediately.
The remainder of the funding shall be set aside for other activities that are not the subject of this Notice. This includes $5,500,000,000 set aside for a bridge replacement, rehabilitation, preservation, protection, and construction program; $1,000,000,000 set aside for the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Formula Program; $640,000,000 set aside for the Nationally Significant Freight and Highway Projects Program under Section 117 of Title 23, United States Code (U.S.C.); $1,847,000,000 set aside for the Bridge Investment Program under Section 124 of Title 23, U.S.C.; $30,000,000 set aside for the Reduction of Truck Emissions at Port Facilities Program under Section 11402 of Division A of the BIL; $19,000,000 set aside for the University Transportation Centers Program under Section 5505 of Title 49, U.S.C.; $100,000,000 set aside for the Reconnecting Communities Pilot Program under Section 11509 of Division A of the BIL; and $68,400,000 set aside for the Construction of Ferry Boats and Ferry Terminal Facilities Program under Section 147 of Title 23, U.S.C.
What amount is available for distribution under this Notice?
Of the FY 2024 funding appropriated for HIP under the BIL, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) may retain, for operations and administration of FHWA, up to 1.5 percent of the amounts appropriated for construction of the ADHS as authorized under Section 1069(y) of Pub. L. 102-240.
The applied administrative takedown from such funds appropriated for construction of the ADHS as authorized under Section 1069(y) of Pub. L. 102-240 is $3,750,000.
Therefore, the amount of funds available for distribution to the Appalachian States under this Notice is $246,250,000 after the application of an administrativetakedown of $3,750,000.
What is the availability of these funds?
The funds resulting from this apportionment for the construction of the ADHS as authorized under Section 1069(y) of Pub. L. 102-240 are available for obligation until expended.
The funds resulting from this apportionment are available for obligation immediately and are not subject to any limitation on obligations.
The program code to be used when obligating these funds is as follows:
|Program Code||Program Description||CFDA Number|
|Y144||Appalachian Development Highway System||23.003|
What is the background information for the Appalachian Development Highway System Program?
The funds resulting from this apportionment are available to States that contain one or more counties (including any political subdivision located within the area) in the Appalachian region, as defined in Section 14102(a) of Title 40, U.S.C.
After reserving the applicable administrative takedown described in paragraph (2), and in consultation with the Appalachian Regional Commission, the funds are apportioned to Appalachian States according to the percentages derived from the 2021 Appalachian Development Highway System Cost-to-Complete Estimate, dated March 2021, and confirmed as each Appalachian State's relative share of the estimated remaining need to complete the ADHS, adjusted to exclude those corridors that such States have no current plans to complete, as reported in the 2013 Appalachian Development Highway System Completion Report, unless those States have modified and assigned a higher priority for completion of an ADHS corridor, as reported in the 2020 Appalachian Development Highway System Future Outlook.
The apportionments shall be adjusted so that (1) no Appalachian State is apportioned an amount in excess of 30 percent of the amount made available; (2) each Appalachian State receives at least $10,000,000; and (3) notwithstanding item (2), an Appalachian State does not receive an apportionment that exceeds the remaining funds needed to complete the ADHS corridor(s) in the State, as identified in the latest available cost to complete estimate for the ADHS prepared by the Appalachian Regional Commission.
For a project carried out with funds made available for construction of the ADHS, such funds shall be made available for obligation in the same manner as if apportioned under Chapter 1 of Title 23, U.S.C., except that: (1) the Federal share of the cost of any project carried out with those amounts shall be determined in accordance with Section 14501 of Title 40, U.S.C.; and (2) the amounts shall be available to construct highways and access roads under Section 14501 of Title 40, U.S.C. The Federal share of the cost of a project carried out with funds made available for construction of the ADHS under the BIL shall be up to 100 percent, as determined by the State.
The funds are not transferable under Section 126 of Title 23, U.S.C.
What is the distribution of funds for the Appalachian Development Highway System Program?
The BIL appropriates a total of $250,000,000 in HIP funds for the ADHS.
The amount of funds available for distribution to the Appalachian States is $246,250,000 after the application of an administrative takedown of $3,750,000. The attached Table 1 shows the State-by-State distribution of funds.
