ACTION: Interstate Discretionary (ID) Funds - Fiscal Year (FY) 1999 Allocations November 3, 1998
Chief, Federal-Aid and Design Division


Regional Administrators


This is to advise you of the projects selected for ID funds available for FY 1999 from funds carried over from previous years. We received and reviewed a total of 11 candidate projects submitted by 6 States requesting $122.6 million in discretionary funds. Projects selected and allocations to each project are shown in the attached table. The appropriation code for these funds is 054.

The Federal share for ID funds is 90 percent and the funds are subject to obligation limitation. An equal amount of obligation limitation is also being distributed for each allocation.

Each allocation and the accompanying obligation limitation are available only for the specific project shown. Any request to adjust the amount of ID funds or to shift unobligated allocations and project underruns to other projects must be forwarded in writing to the Chief, Federal-Aid and Design Division for approval.

We expect the obligation of these funds will be accomplished in a timely manner. Any unobligated funds will be withdrawn for the August redistribution of obligation limitation towards the end of FY 1999.

By copy of this memorandum, we request the Budget Division of the Office of Budget and Finance to process these allocations. You may call Mr. Cecilio Leonin of the Federal-Aid and Design Division at 202-366-4651 if you have questions.
