Additional Information on Eligibility
Eligible recipients are either 1) a public transportation provider or, 2) a university, non-profit, private, or public entity working in partnership with a public transportation provider. If the project involves a partnership, the application must clearly identify a lead organization to serve as the recipient and manage the funding arrangements with FTA. FTA will evaluate partnerships as a unit. A public transportation provider must be either the lead or one of the partners.
The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) is soliciting proposals for transit climate change adaptation assessment pilots. The pilots will fund transit agencies or partnerships with transit agencies to assess the vulnerability of transit agency assets and services to climate change hazards such as heat waves and flooding. The pilots will also assess initial adaptation strategies and link these strategies to transit agency organizational structures and activities. One of the pilots will focus on demonstrating the integration of adaptation assessment within an asset management system. Each pilot will submit to FTA a final report on the activities conducted, main findings, and applicability to other transit agencies. FTA contemplates making approximately four cooperative agreement awards, ranging from $50,000 to $175,000 each. Total funding available is $525,000. Eligible recipients are either 1) a public transportation provider or, 2) a university, non-profit, private, or public entity working in partnership with a public transportation provider.
