Clean Fuels Formula Grant Program
On June 9, 1998, the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21) was enacted requiring the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) to establish a new grant program entitled the Clean Fuels Formula Grant Program. This rule establishes the procedures eligible recipients must use to apply for this new program. Although the FY 1999, FY 2000, FY 2001 and FY 2002 appropriations bills did not make funding available for this program, legislation was enacted each of these fiscal years, which provided that the guaranteed funds for this new program be made available to the bus and bus facilities categories of the Capital Investment Grants and Loans program of 49 U.S.C. 5309. FTA is publishing this final rule to ensure application procedures are available should funding be made available for this program.
