U.S. Department of Transportation Seeks Public Comment on Integrated Application Documents for RRIF and TIFIA Credit Programs

Updated: Thursday, April 26, 2018

In accordance with the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the United States Department of Transportation (the Department) invites public comments on a request to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to approve modifications to two currently approved Information Collection Requests (ICRs). As part of the approval of the modifications to the ICRs, one ICR would be integrated into the other ICR. The modified and integrated ICR will be used to allow entities to apply for Railroad Rehabilitation and Improvement Financing (RRIF) and Transportation Infrastructure Financing and Innovation Act (TIFIA) credit assistance using a single set of forms, rather than having one set of forms for RRIF and one set of forms for TIFIA. The new, integrated forms have been updated to reflect changes in law, streamlining of the credit programs, and efficiencies in the application process adopted by the Department.  However, the general process of applying for credit assistance is not changing; applications are still accepted on a rolling basis. The ICR is necessary for the Department to evaluate projects and project sponsors for credit program eligibility and creditworthiness, as required by law.
