FTA, Maine transit officials discuss grant app snafu

Posted on November 18, 2010

BANGOR, Maine — The Maine Public Broadcasting Network reports that on Tuesday, FTA administrator Peter Rogoff visited Portland's Metro headquarters where he answered questions about a snafu in a recent federal grant application that potentially cost the state approximately $21 million in lost funding, 43 buses and bus terminal improvements. The grant application was filed with the federal State of Good Repair Program, but for some unknown reason all that was received by the FTA was a four-page cover letter.

 

Rogoff says Maine was the only state whose grant application was lost in transmission and that the FTA is adopting new procedures to double check applications to make sure that they're complete. For the full story, click here.
