FTA Seeks Comment on Proposed Updates to the Joint Development Circular

Published on: February 4, 2023

Following changes to FTA’s Joint Development program made by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, FTA is requesting public comment on a potential change to the updated Joint Development guidance. The proposed guidance (Circular 7050.1C) will supersede Circular 7050.1B, once finalized.

FTA published a notice summarizing proposed changes to Circular 7050.1B in the Federal Register, with comments due by March 31, 2023.

The proposed update incorporates changes that added “technology to fuel a zero-emission vehicle” as an eligible joint development improvement under the definition of a “capital project.” These changes would impact eligibility criteria for FTA-assisted capital projects by changing fee collection requirements for joint development projects that include zero-emission vehicle charging.

FTA recommends that interested stakeholders review the proposed changes to the Circular and provide comment on any impacts they may have on future joint development projects.

You can review this notice and comment on the proposed changes by March 31, 2023, at the Federal Register.
