General Government: Grants for Transit Resilience

To mitigate the negative effects of fragmentation across federal funding streams, the Department of Transportation should examine the $3.6 billion in funding the Federal Transit Administration awarded toward transit resilience projects for potential duplication with other resilience efforts.

Action:

The Department of Transportation should examine the projects the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) funded under its discretionary transit resilience grant program for potential duplication with other resilience efforts and determine whether it is appropriate to realign unobligated funds for FTA-supported projects for other authorized purposes or request that Congress rescind unobligated funds from FTA-supported projects.

Progress:

Pending

Implementing Entity:

Department of Transportation
