Highway Use Tax Evasion - Intergovernmental Efforts: As directed in The Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act), funds are available for projects enhancing compliance of motor fuel and highway use taxes. Of those funds, $2,000,000 are set aside each year for Intergovernmental Enforcement Efforts in identifying and reducing fuel tax evasion. The Federal share payable is 100 percent. For this award, available funds will be combined from FY 2017 and FY 2018 program funds, for a total available award of $ 4,000,000. Applicants are encouraged to submit innovative proposals to reduce fuel tax evasion and increase collaboration and coordination among several public agencies, including federal agencies. Research and training proposals are also eligible. However, one state must be designated as the lead for each project that receives Federal funding. Priority will be given to proposals that involve more than one public agency. The minimum funding per project will be $10,000 and the maximum funding per year per project will be $250,000. Any funds administered under this program shall be used in accordance with the specifications in 2 CFR 200 Subpart E-Cost Principles http://www.ecfr.gov/cgi-bin/text-idx?SID=616a6a6c9a0b52b7bbf48e027a88a1b7&mc=true&node=sp2.1.200.e&rgn=div6.

States selected to receive funding will enter into negotiations with FHWA and the designated lead state will be required to enter into a project agreement with FHWA.
