How to apply...
Potential applicants should follow instructions found in FTA Circular 6100.1C, "Transit Research and Technology Programs: Application and Program Management Guidelines." The Circular may be found at the web site www.fta.dot.gov. This program is subject to the provisions of 49 CFR Part 19.
Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.
The Federal Transit Administration makes the final decision to approve a grant. An FTA grant award obligating Federal funds is reflected in a grant agreement. To access funds, the recipient must execute the grant agreement.
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
