FTA will host a webinar at 2 p.m. EDT Thursday, December 15, 2022, to provide those interested in the Transit Standards Development funding opportunity with more information about the program. FTA published the notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) in November. The webinar will offer potential applicants an overview of the program and allow an opportunity to ask questions.

FTA’s Transit Standards Development Program provides $3 million under FTA’s Technical Assistance and Workforce Development Program to one organization or partnership to develop transit standards, including performing an industry assessment and developing standards and tools in safety and other areas to address transit industry needs. The organization will develop voluntary standards and best practices to help transit agency implementation.

Proposals must be submitted electronically through GRANTS.GOV by January 23, 2023.
