PHMSA 2010 Natural Gas Base Grant: This grant opportunity is only open for states that have a certification or agreement with PHMSA to do pipeline safety inspections. The U.S. Department of Transportation's Pipeline and Hazardous Material Safety Administration (PHMSA), administers the national regulatory program to assure safe transportation of natural gas, petroleum, and other hazardous materials by pipeline. The Natural Gas Pipeline Safety Act of 1968 as amended (NGPSA) authorizes the Department to regulate pipeline transportation of natural (flammable, toxic, or corrosive) gas and other gases as well as the transportation and storage of liquefied natural gas (LNG). This Act has been recodified as 49 U.S.C. Chapter 601. PHMSA is authorized to reimburse a state agency up to 50 percent of the actual costs for carrying out its pipeline safety program, including the cost of personnel and equipment. The actual amount of Federal reimbursement depends upon the availability of appropriated funds and state program performance. The estimated total program funding is $20,640,000 for State Program Natural Gas and Hazardous Liquid Base Grants and will be distributed according to individual state applications.
