|Subject:||New Transportation TCSP Program- Letters of Intent Due - 11/16/98|
The Transportation and Community and System Preservation Pilot program (TCSP) was established as part of the Transportation and Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21), signed by President Clinton on June 9, 1998. TCSP provides funding for planning and implementing strategies that:1) reduce the environmental effects of transportation; 2) improve the efficiency of current transportation systems; 3) provide efficient access to jobs and centers of trade; 4) reduce the future number of costly public infrastructure investments; and 5) identify private sector development strategies that will achieve these goals. TCSP grants can be used to examine transportation strategies that relate to brownfields redevelopment, such as planning access to redeveloped brownfields sites, upgrading existing urban transportation systems, and connecting local community members to new brownfields-related jobs. State agencies, units of local governments, and metropolitan planning organizations are eligible to receive TCSP funds, as well as air resources boards, public transit agencies, park districts, and school boards. TCSP will be funded at $20 million for FY 1999 and for $25 million annually from FY 2000 through FY 2003. The number and size of TCSP grants will depend on the number of proposals received. The grant is administered through the U.S. Department of Transportation's (DOT) Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). DOT is requesting that interested parties submit Letters of Intent (LOI), of no more than four pages, to the FHWA Division Offices located in the state of the applicant. LOI are due by November 16, 1998. LOI will be evaluated, and selected applicants will be contacted in order to prepare the grant application. More information, including a sample Letter of Intent, may be found at http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/tea21/fedreg3.htm. Questions may be directed to the state FHWA Division Offices, or by calling Fred Abousleman in FHWA's Office of Environment and Planning at (202) 366-5015.
