Schatz: FTA Approves Updated Grant Agreement, Set For Final HART Review
WASHINGTON – Following a lengthy process facilitated by U.S Senator Brian Schatz (D-Hawai‘i), Chair of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Transportation, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) approved the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transit’s (HART) updated full funding grant agreement (FFGA), which is now set for a final review from the HART Board of Directors and the Honolulu City Council.
“After a long and difficult process, we are close to finalizing an updated full funding grant agreement that will help us complete Honolulu’s Skyline. While we still have more work to do, this key milestone recognizes the hard work HART and the City have done to provide more accountability and get this project back on track. I will continue to work with our federal and state partners to make sure we close the deal and finish this project for the people of Honolulu.”
