Applying through ODOT: Due to ODOT March 11, 2020 Direct Recipients: Due to FTA March 17, 2020
The main purpose of the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) Low or No Emission Program (Low-No Program) is to support the transition of the nation’s transit fleet to the lowest polluting and most energy efficient transit vehicles. The Low-No Program provides funding to state and local governmental authorities for the purchase or lease of zero-emission and low-emission transit buses. This also includes acquisition, construction, and leasing of required supporting facilities.
Funding comes from the FTA's 5339 Program with available funds of $130 million for this solicitation
Project Budget: Applicants are encouraged to identify scaled funding options in case insufficient funding is available to fund a project at the full requested amount. If an applicant indicates that a project is scalable, the applicant must provide an appropriate minimum funding amount that will fund an eligible project that achieves the objectives of the program and meets all relevant program requirements. The applicant must provide a clear explanation of how the project budget would be affected by a reduced award. FTA may award a lesser amount whether or not a scalable option is provided.
For vehicles, the match is 15 percent local funds. For Bus-related Equipment and Facilities (such as recharging or refueling facilities), the match is 10 percent local funds.
Acceptable match sources are: cash from non-government sources other than revenues from providing public transportation services; revenues derived from the sale of advertising and concessions; amounts received under a service agreement with a state or local social service agency or private social service organization; revenues generated from value capture financing mechanisms; funds from an undistributed cash surplus; replacement or depreciation cash fund or reserve; new capital; or in-kind contributions. In addition, transportation development credits or documentation of in-kind match may substitute for local match if identified in the application.
An eligible applicant is a designated recipient of FTA 5307 grants as well as states, local governmental authorities, and Indian tribes. ODOT will be applying on behalf of subrecipients who are not 5307 direct recipients.
Purchase or lease of zero-emission and low-emission transit buses, and acquisition, construction, and leasing of required supporting facilities.
FTA will consider the quality and extent to which applications demonstrate how the proposed project will: reduce energy consumption, reduce harmful emissions and reduce direct carbon emissions. Applicants must demonstrate how the proposed project is consistent with local and regional long range planning documents and local government priorities. Applicants must identify the source of the local cost share and describe whether such funds are currently available for the project or will need to be secured if the project is selected for funding.
Applications will be evaluated based on the quality and extent to which they demonstrate how the proposed project will address an unmet need for capital investment in vehicles and/or supporting facilities. For example: an applicant may demonstrate that it requires additional charging facilities for low- or no-emission vehicles, that it intends to replace existing vehicles that have exceeded their minimum useful life, or that it requires additional vehicles to meet current ridership demands.

2018 5339(b) Awards
Nov. 2018 applications awarded March 2019. May 2019 applications awarded Oct. 2019
This solicitation is for the STIF Formula Fund, which is intended to expand and improve public transportation services in Oregon. Review the Formula Fund Guidance and Application Instructions document for more information.
The STIF Formula Fund Guidance and Application Instructions and the STIF Plan Template (application form) are available now. There are two application opportunities in the first STIF funding cycle with two corresponding submittal deadlines and review and approval cycles. Formula Fund submittals must be received by ODOT no later than November 1, 2018 for the first opportunity or May 1, 2019 for the second opportunity.
Only complete STIF Plan Applications will be accepted. If an applicant does not have a complete STIF Plan Application by the first deadline, the applicant may submit at the second deadline.
See the detailed Formula Fund Schedule for more information.
Oregon Transportation Commission approved STIF Plans from the Nov. 1, 2018 and May 1, 2019 deadlines are available here.
Section 122 of House Bill 2017 provides statewide funding for public transportation service. Proceeds from the payroll tax will be deposited into the Statewide Transportation Improvement Fund. The Oregon Department of Revenue began assessing the tax July 1, 2018. The Oregon Department of Transportation will implement the Formula Fund program with 90 percent of these revenues distributed by formula to Qualified Entities, upon Oregon Transportation Commission approval of a STIF service improvement plan.
There are no match requirements for STIF Formula Funds.
Only a Qualified Entity may submit a STIF Plan. A Qualified Entity is a county in which no part of a Mass Transit District or Transportation District exists, a Mass Transit District, a Transportation District or an Indian Tribe, per OAR 732-040-0005. A Public Transportation Service Provider or any non-profit, private for-profit, or public entity is eligible to receive STIF Formula funds by performing work for a Qualified Entity or a Public Transportation Service Provider, which supports a project in the Qualified Entity’s STIF Plan.
A map of Qualified Entities is located in the STIF Rulemaking Document Library on the STIF webpage: https://www.oregon.gov/ODOT/RPTD/Pages/STIF.aspx.
STIF funding may be used to finance investments and improvements in public transportation services, except for light rail capital expenses. STIF may be used for public transportation purposes that support the effective planning, deployment, operation, and administration of public transportation programs including, but not limited to, the following:
STIF moneys are primarily intended to fund the expansion or improvement of public transportation in Oregon and priority will be given to plans that improve or expand services.
The majority of funding in this first funding cycle will be directed to improve or expand service. However, as services improve and expand, ongoing costs associated with operation and maintenance of the expansion will increase. OAR 732-040-0010(2)(b), which specifies that STIF funds may be used to maintain or continue systems and services, is directed to future scenarios where a Qualified Entity has expanded service by using STIF moneys and now needs to maintain that expansion. This section may also govern instances where one-time funds are no longer available (e.g., federal one-time discretionary funds, federal ARRA grant funds). STIF moneys are not intended to supplant local funding sources to maintain existing services. A STIF Plan that proposes to use STIF funding to replace local funding to maintain an existing service may result in denial of the funding request.
STIF Plans (applications) must be received by ODOT no later than November 1, 2018 for the first opportunity or May 1, 2019 for the second opportunity.

ODOT announced STIF Formula Fund awards in March 2019 for STIF Plans submitted on November 1, 2018 and October 2019 for STIF Plans submitted on May 1, 2019.
Application deadline is June 6, 2019.
The mission of TGM is to support community efforts to expand transportation choices. By linking land use and transportation planning, TGM works with local governments to create vibrant, livable places in which people can walk, bike, take transit or drive where they want to go.
Applications due June 6, 2019
Applications awarded August 2019
The TGM Program awards grants on an annual basis. TGM typically awards between $2 and $2.5 million per cycle. Projects are selected on a competitive basis within each of the five ODOT regions. The regional allocation – funds available for projects - is based on a formula that considers the number of cities and the population within a region. Grants generally have two-years for projects to be negotiated and completed. Award amounts generally range between $75,000 and $250,000.
Local share is 12% of the total project cost. Grantees typically provide match in the form of cash or direct project costs, such as time and materials directly related to the project. Time that may be counted as project match includes that from grantee staff, grantee contract planners and engineers, or certain volunteers, such as project committee members. Communities defined as “distressed” by the Oregon Business Development Department may request a partial match waiver. The list of distressed communities is available online at: http://www.oregon4biz.com/Publications/Distressed-List/.
Eligible applicants include cities, counties, councils of government on behalf of a city or county, and tribal governments. Certain special districts are eligible, such as transportation districts, metropolitan planning organizations, ports, mass transit districts, parks and recreation districts, and metropolitan service districts. School districts, and public colleges and universities, may be eligible as part of a joint application with a local government for an otherwise eligible project. Eligible applicants may join together to propose a project, such as a multi-county TSP or multi-city or city-county corridor plan.
TGM grants are for planning work leading to local policy decisions. Projects should result in the development of an adoption-ready plan or land use regulation or amendments to an existing plan or land use regulation. Projects that primarily do research or outreach, study an issue, compile data, or inventory information are generally not eligible for grant funding. TGM grants also cannot fund preliminary engineering, engineering, or construction work. If in doubt, discuss with your Region TGM planner about whether your proposed work is eligible.
