FTA Circulars


FTA issues guidance, often in the form of circulars, to provide grantees with direction on program specific issues and statutory requirements. We are in the process of preparing new interim program guidance and new and updated circulars under MAP-21. Please continue to consult our existing circulars, which will remain a resource for program guidance in most areas.

To submit comments, questions or complaints regarding existing Circulars, please contact Bonnie Graves, Attorney Advisor, Office of the Chief Counsel. Please reference the specific circular you want to discuss in your e-mail. Comments on proposed circulars can be submitted at
