Title: 49 U.S.C. Section 5337 State of Good Repair Program
(OMB Number: 2132-0550)
    Background: 49 U.S.C. Section 5337, the State of Good Repair Grants
Program was authorized by Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century
(MAP-21). It was reauthorized under the Fixing America's Surface
Transportation (FAST) Act Section 3015. This program authorizes the
Secretary of Transportation to make grants to designated recipients to
maintain, replace, and rehabilitate high intensity fixed guideway
systems and high intensity motorbus systems in a state of good repair.
Projects that are eligible for the State of Good Repair Program funds
must be in the priority list of a recipient's Transit Asset Management
plan. Eligible recipients include state and local government
authorities in urbanized areas with high intensity fixed guideway
systems and/or high intensity motorbus systems operating for at least
seven years. Projects are funded at 80 percent federal with a 20
percent local match requirement by statute. FTA will apportion funds to
designated recipients. The designated recipients will then allocate
funds as appropriate to recipients that are public entities in the
urbanized areas. FTA can make grants to direct recipients after sub-
allocation of funds. Recipients apply for grants electronically, and
FTA collects milestone and financial status reports from designated
recipients on a quarterly basis. The information submitted ensures
FTA's compliance with applicable federal laws.
    Respondents: State and local governments.
    Estimated Annual Number of Respondents: 1,044.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 13,224 hours.
    Frequency: Annual.

Director Office of Management Planning.
