Yes. States may use SSO Formula Grant Program funds to pay reasonable compensation to employees who are working on the SSO program. All labor must be identified in a staffing plan shared with FTA. You may pay the following types of employees, as identified in the staffing plan:
- Full or partial wages for all SSO personnel.
- Overtime wages for SSO employees who perform activities such as accident investigation or corrective plan verification.
- Partial wages for State employees who support the SSO program.
Again, refer to section 8 of Appendix B to 2 C.F.R. Part 225 (PDF) for specific information, and speak to your Regional Office for additional assistance.
