SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
: In a letter
submitted to the docket dated November
18, 2021, the American Public
Transportation Association (APTA), on
behalf of more than 1,300 member
organizations, requested a 30-day
extension of the comment period
seeking input on Title VI
implementation published in the
Federal Register on November 3, 2021
(86 FR 60735). As justification for this
extension, APTA cited the upcoming
holidays, increased grant activity with
the recent signing of the recent
infrastructure law, and ongoing
responses to the COVID–19 pandemic as
pulling transit systems in many
directions. APTA believes an extension
of time would facilitate its members’
ability to formulate thoughtful and
proactive comments responsive to
FTA’s request for information.
Given the importance of Title VI
implementation and the desire for a
robust dialogue on a possible update of
FTA’s Title VI Circular, FTA believes an
extension of time is justified, and an
additional 30 days in which to submit
comments is adequate. FTA is not
republishing the Questions to the Public
in this document. Instead, please refer
to the November 3, 2021 RFI (86 FR
60735) to view the original questions
regarding Title VI implementation.
Scott Giering,
Deputy Associate Administrator for Civil
Rights.
