Special Federal-aid Funding

 
MEMORANDUM

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (Public Law 117-58, also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law or BIL) authorizes funds for the formula based FBP program for the construction of ferry boats and ferry terminal facilities, in accordance with 23 United States Code (U.S.C.) 129(c) and 23 U.S.C. 147, both as amended by BIL. FBP funds are made available for eligible projects, through State or territorial transportation agencies, using the data contained in the most recent Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) National Census of Ferry Operators (NCFO). The State, through its Department of Transportation (DOT) in accordance with 23 U.S.C. 302, is the funds recipient and is responsible for administration of these funds. If the State DOT acts as a pass-through entity of Federal assistance, the State DOT maintains the pass-through responsibilities specified in 2 CFR 200.332. The State DOT may; 1) develop and administer a FBP project, 2) may assist Local Public Agencies (LPAs) in the development and administration of FBP projects (if provided for by the State DOT), or 3) they may transfer the FBP funds to an appropriate Federal agency.

To be eligible for FBP funds, ferry operators need to complete the BTS biennial NCFO. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) FBP is available only for existing ferry service that is publicly owned or operated and cannot be used to establish new ferry service. To establish new ferry service, other Federal-aid programs such as the National Highway Performance Program and the Surface Transportation Block Grant Program could be used. A new ferry service, meeting the FBP statutory requirements, would need to be in operation during the next BTS data collection cycle to qualify for future FBP funding.

The FHWA and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) administer funding for separate ferry boat programs. The formula based FHWA FBP is administered under Title 23 U.S.C. Sections 129(c) and 147. Funding for FBP is generally available to construct ferry boats, ferry terminals, and ferry maintenance facilities, where both passenger and vehicle ferries are eligible, if service is on a fixed route in a situation where it is not feasible to build a bridge or tunnel. Eligibilities for operators and projects are prescribed in statute. The FTA administers three competitive ferry programs, the Passenger Ferry Grant Program, the Electric or Low-Emitting Ferry Pilot Program, and the Ferry Service for Rural Communities Program. These discretionary programs are available for ferries in urban and rural areas that provide regular and continuing shared-ride service for pedestrians, although these ferries may accommodate vehicles. This memorandum covers only the FHWA FBP and information on FTA's ferry programs may be provided through FTA. Under 23 U.S.C. 104(f)(2), a State DOT may elect to transfer funds, to be administered under the highway or transit program, pulling together both FHWA and FTA funds to deliver projects.

The FHWA distributes FBP funds annually based on a formula contained in law. With this distribution, FHWA announces how much funding is available to each State for each ferry system. However, FHWA does not release the funds and obligation limitation until projects are ready to be authorized to proceed to construction.

The nondiscretionary FBP funds are Highway Trust Fund (HTF) contract authority authorized under the BIL and made available for obligation under the obligation limitation provided in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2022 (Public Law 117-103). Under the provisions of Section 11102(f) of the BIL, Redistribution of Certain Authorized Funds, only the amount of funds for which obligation limitation is provided will be made available and the remaining funds will be distributed to the States. As a result, $100,430,000.00 of new Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 FBP HTF contract authority and obligation limitation are available for distribution.

BIL also provides an appropriation of $67,374,000.00 in general funds appropriated budget authority (GF ABA) for the construction of Ferry Boats and Ferry Terminal Facilities also administered under 23 U.S.C. 147.

In addition to the new authorization of FY 2022 funds, 23 U.S.C. 147(e) requires FHWA to withdraw and redistribute FBP funds that have not been obligated by the end of the third fiscal year following the year in which the funds were first distributed. Because of this redistribution process, an additional $4,447,541.72 of HTF contract authority and obligation limitation, is available for distribution in FY 2022.

In total, $172,251,541.72 of FBP funds are made available for FY 2022. The attached table (Attachment 1) shows the distribution of funds by State and ferry service. The FBP distribution formula is based on three elements: the number of ferry passengers (35%), number of vehicles carried (35%), and the total route nautical miles (30%). The FY 2022 distribution amounts were calculated with the data contained in the 2020 NCFO. States with at least one eligible entity that meets FBP requirements will receive at least $100,000 for each fiscal year, per 23 U.S.C. 147(f). The funds may only be used for eligible projects in the amount identified and may only be used on publicly owned terminals or boats, or as otherwise provided in BIL. The available funding will be posted at the FHWA Ferry Boat Program Website.

The listed ferry services operate either publicly owned vessels or utilize publicly owned terminal facilities, and otherwise meet the requirements of 23 U.S.C. 129, as amended by BIL. These publicly owned vessels or terminals are determined to be eligible for the FBP program funds based on the 2020 NCFO database and on follow-up reviews performed by FHWA divisions and State DOTs. Divisions should contact this office if they determine that a ferry service is not eligible for the program. The funds identified for such services will be redistributed to the remaining eligible services based on the statutory formula.

In addition to pre-BIL eligible use of FBP funding, as discussed in Ferry Boat Program Implementation Guidance as Revised by The FAST Act, the BIL amended 23 U.S.C. 147 to provide for the construction of ferry boats and ferry terminal facilities, including ferry maintenance facilities, whether toll or free, and the procurement of transit vehicles used exclusively as an integral part of an intermodal ferry trip. Additionally, BIL amended 23 U.S.C. 147(k) to provide an eligible entity may use FBP funds to pay the operating costs of the eligible entity. Privately owned or privately operated ferries are not eligible entities and do not meet the requirements of 23 U.S.C. 129(c). Additional guidance will be provided in the FBP Implementation Guidance as updated for BIL and will be posted on the BIL website (Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Website). In the interim, FHWA will work with recipients to assure funding is advanced for eligible purposes.

If a ferry operates between more than one State, the ferry service may elect to transfer funds to the appropriate State to implement an eligible project on the ferry system. States and ferry services should coordinate when selecting the projects. In these cases, the allocation request should include the State to which the funds are to be allocated or transferred. Funds may not be transferred among operators.

In accordance with 23 U.S.C. 147(b), the maximum Federal share for a project in any State or Puerto Rico under this program is 80%. In the case of a project to replace or retrofit a diesel fuel ferry vessel that provides substantial emissions reductions, the Federal share of the cost of the project may be up to 85 percent, as determined by the State (BIL Section 11117(b)(1)). The provision for increased Federal share to replace or retrofit a diesel fuel ferry vessel terminates on September 30, 2025 (BIL Section 11117(b)(2)). The maximum share in U.S. Territories is 100%. The sliding scale Federal share does not apply to this program. Other matching flexibilities such as donations and "soft match" may be considered. Guidance can be found at Federal-aid Essentials Matching or Cost Sharing Requirements.

FBP funds are available to eligible entities for three fiscal years following the fiscal year in which the funds were initially made available for allocation. FBP funds initially distributed in FY 2019 must be obligated by the end of FY 2022, and any unobligated funds remaining at the end of FY 2022 will be withdrawn and redistributed in FY 2023. FBP funds (HTF and general funds) distributed for FY 2022 that remain unobligated on September 30, 2025, will be withdrawn and redistributed in FY 2026 to eligible entities from which no funds were withdrawn. To minimize redistribution amounts the funds for each FY will be distributed in the following order: 1) FY 2018 and older redistributed funds, 2) HTF contract authority funds, and 3) GF ABA funds.

Requesting FBP Funding:

Please notify your State DOT that they may request allocation of these funds for projects ready to be authorized. When a project is ready to be obligated, and the division has confirmed that the ferry service and project are eligible, please submit an allocation request to this office to make the funds available in FMIS. The request for allocation (or transfer) of funds should include the following six items:

1) Identify the operator,
2) identify the FY and amount of the requested FBP funding,
3) identify the purpose for which the funds will be used,
4) provide confirmation that the ferry operation is eligible,
5) provide confirmation the project is eligible, and
6) provide confirmation the project is ready for obligation.

If the State DOT wants to transfer of FBP funds to another Federal agency for project implementation, in addition to the above six items, a form FHWA 1576 must be completed and submitted to this office.

The contract authority FBP funds remain available until expended (23 U.S.C. 147(i)) but are subject to August redistribution. Therefore, allocation should not be requested until the project is ready for obligation. If a State DOT plans to obligate funds in a FY, those FBP funds must be allocated to the State DOT prior to August redistribution or our office must be notified to withhold obligation limitation from August redistribution for subsequent allocation. If our office does not have advance notice, the obligation limitation will be released, and we cannot allocate FBP funds after August redistribution. August redistribution spreadsheets are typically due from the division offices to the FHWA Office of Budget in mid-July. General funds are also available until expended but are not subject to August redistribution.

If there are any questions and for allocation of funds, please contact Omar Elkassed at 213-894-6718 or by email at Omar.Elkassed@dot.gov.
