Applicant Eligibility
The Passenger Ferry Grant program (Ferry program), as authorized, is available to urbanized areas for the same general authority provided under 49 U.S.C. 5307 (Section 5307). However, within the authority provided to the Secretary of Transportation to develop a competitive process, FTA is limiting this discretionary opportunity to capital projects. These funds constitute a core investment in the enhancement and revitalization of public ferry systems in the Nation's urbanized areas. This notice solicits proposals to compete for Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 funding under the Ferry program and may include additional funds made available under future appropriations.
