FTA Program and Funding Information & Interim Guidance Under MAP-21

Federal Policy Update

The Federal Transit Administration has published interim guidance and other important information regarding MAP-21's changes to FTA's programs. Primarily, the guidance focuses on the core transit formula programs, and states that future regulations or guidance will be issued for other programs, such as New Starts/Small Starts, planning, and safety. Separately, FTA issued a detailed list of apportionments, i.e. how much funding each urbanized area or state can expect to receive for the first half of FY2013 from FTA's formula programs. (Only half of FY2013's authorized funding has been made available so far by Congressional appropriators, which is why FTA can only apportion a half-year's worth of funding.)
