How to apply...
The ARC has established a corridor system. The Appalachian State office designated by the State Member submits an application for construction within this system to the Commission for consideration. ARC must concur in detailed highway locations and construction centerlines. Upon such approval, State highway departments may submit plans to implement projects to the State-level office of Federal Highway Administration. This program is excluded from coverage under OMB Circular No. A-110.
Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.
Upon determination that the State approved project is eligible within a Commission approved Appalachian Highway Plan, the Federal Co-chairman notifies FHWA of centerline approval based on determines that the project satisfies all Federal requirements. The Department of Transportation is then notified, administers the grants and disburses the funds.
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
