FTA Supplemental Oversight Dear Colleague Letter

FTA has published a Dear Colleague letter outlining its oversight approach for the nearly $70 billion in Federal funding FTA is providing to support the transit industry’s COVID-19 response and recovery efforts. Oversight is one of the most critical functions FTA performs. Protecting the integrity of Federal COVID-19 relief funding is both necessary and beneficial for FTA, the transit industry, and the public.  FTA is supplementing its normal oversight reviews, conducting new financial spot reviews, and providing additional technical assistance focusing on the use of COVID-19 relief funds.
