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

In compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the United States Department of Transportation (the Department) announces that the Information Collection Request (ICR) described below is being forwarded to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and comments. The public will have 30 days to provide comments to OMB.  A Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on the following information collection was published May 21, 2018 (83 FR 23525), and the comment period ended July 20, 2018. One comment unrelated to the ICR was submitted into the docket.

The ICR would modify two approved ICRs and integrate them into a single 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.

The sixty-day Federal Register notice can be viewed here.  (Comments to DOT are now closed for this notice.)

The thirty-day Federal Register notice can be viewed here.  (Comments to OMB, as noted above, are open through August 27, 2018.)
