Additional Resources for Applicants
This program is being jointly administered by FRA and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). Applicants are encouraged to review the following resource documents (hyperlinked below), which are intended to provide (1) additional instructions to assist in the preparation of applications, and (2) an overview of certain grant administration requirements (should an application be selected for award).
- FTA’s Capital Investment Grant Program (all applicants) – FTA’s website provides additional information about its Grant Program requirements.
- National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Compliance (all applicants) – This document provides a description of FTA’s standard grant provisions related to compliance with NEPA. Applicants and grantees under FTA’s financial assistance programs are encouraged to contact FTA and obtain preliminary direction regarding the appropriate NEPA class of action and required environmental documentation. Generally, projects will be ineligible to receive funding if they have begun construction activities prior to the applicant/grantee receiving written approval from FTA that all environmental and historical analyses have been completed.
- TIGER Benefit-Cost Analysis Resource Guide (all applicants) – This resource guide provides
recommended values for applicants to use in monetizing benefits and costs of proposed projects. Funds will be awarded to projects that achieve the maximum public benefits possible. Analysis provided by applicants that quantifies the monetary value (whenever possible) of the anticipated public benefits of the proposed project will be particularly relevant in evaluating applications. This resource guide was initially developed by the U.S. Department of Transportation for use in the Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) Program.
