FTA updates policy guidance for CIG program


The Federal Transit Administration yesterday issued updates to its Capital Investment Grants Program (CIG) policy guidance to reflect eligibility changes made to the program under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act enacted in November 2021.

In March 2022, FTA sought public comment on three initial proposed changes to the CIG policy guidance, which was last published in 2016.

Those changes involve core capacity eligibility; how the FTA will determine that a CIG project sponsor has demonstrated progress on meeting transit asset management state-of-good-repair targets; and how applicants can request entry into the initial phase of the CIG process of project development for the newly created eligibility called "Bundles of CIG" projects.

In the future, the agency intends to propose for public comment more comprehensive updates to the CIG policy guidance, FTA officials said in a press release.
