23 CFR 1335.9 - Availability of funds.
(a) The release of grant funds under this part in a fiscal year shall be subject to the availability of funds for that fiscal year. If there are expected to be insufficient funds to award the grant amounts specified in § 1335.8 to all eligible States in any fiscal year, NHTSA may release less than these grant amounts upon approval of the State's application and plan, up to the State's proportionate share of available funds. Project approval and the contractual obligation of the Federal government to provide grant funds shall be limited to the amount of funds released.
(b) If any amounts authorized for grants under this part for a fiscal year are expected to remain unobligated in that fiscal year, the Administrator may transfer such amounts to the programs authorized under 23 U.S.C. 405 and 23 U.S.C. 410, to ensure to the extent possible that each State receives the maximum incentive funding for which it is eligible.
(c) If any amounts authorized for grants under 23 U.S.C. 405 and 23 U.S.C. 410 are transferred to the grant program under this part in a fiscal year, the Administrator shall distribute the transferred amounts so that each eligible State receives a proportionate share of these amounts, subject to the conditions specified in § 1335.8 and paragraph (a) of this section.
