FTA Seeks Comment on Emergency Relief Program Guidance

FTA is seeking public comment through April 6 on proposed guidance for the Emergency Relief (ER) ­Program it published Feb. 4 as part of the agency’s new Emergency Relief Manual: A Reference Manual for States and Transit Agencies on Response and Recovery from Declared Disasters & FTA’s Emergency Relief Program.

Submit comments here using docket number FTA-2015-0002.

The manual is intended for states and public transit agencies that might be affected by a declared emergency or disaster and that seek funding under FTA’s ER Program. The document also provides information on other ­disaster relief resources available through FTA and from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, a discussion of recommended practices for disaster preparation and frequently asked questions relating to disaster recovery.

The new manual revises and replaces FTA’s Response and Recovery from Declared Emergencies and Disasters: A Reference for Transit Agencies, last updated in June 2013.

This guidance supplements the Emergency Relief Program Regulation-Final Rule, published in the Federal Register on Oct. 7, 2014.
