32. Should an applicant submit their application to the State in addition to the FTA? Will the States review the applications after they are submitted to the FTA?
If an applicant is a direct recipient of FTA funds, then the application should be submitted to the FTA directly. States do not review the applications once they are submitted to FTA. If selected, the project will need to be added to the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program in cooperation with the MPO and/or state DOT.
