Yesterday, the TIFIA Program Office released updated TIFIA program guidance and loan document templates that purport to reflect the July 6, 2012 enactment of MAP-21.  Among other revisions, the TIFIA Program Guide has been updated to reflect MAP-21’s endorsement of a rolling application process and the imposition of specific statutory deadlines on processing applications.

While the updated TIFIA guidance documents offer welcome support to current and prospective TIFIA applicants, there appears to be at least some additional work to be done to update the materials to properly reflect MAP-21 enhancements.  For example, the updated TIFIA Loan Term Sheet and TIFIA Loan Agreement sample templates continue to reflect a maximum 33% loan amount ceiling - a limit that Congress raised in MAP-21 in order to authorize TIFIA loan amounts of up to 49% of eligible project costs.

The updated Program Guide and templates can be found on the TIFIA website.

The TIFIA Letter of Interest and Application forms remain open for review and public comment until August 5, 2013.
