                     PROGRAM, PROJECT, AND ACTIVITY

    During fiscal year 2022, for the purposes of the Balanced 
Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 (Public Law 
99-177), as amended, with respect to appropriations contained 
in the accompanying bill, the terms ``program, project, and 
activity'' (PPA) shall mean any item for which a dollar amount 
is contained in appropriations acts (including joint 
resolutions providing continuing appropriations) and 
accompanying reports of the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations, or accompanying conference reports and joint 
explanatory statements of the committee of conference. This 
definition shall apply to all programs for which new budget 
(obligational) authority is provided, as well as to 
discretionary grants and discretionary grant allocations made 
through either bill or report language.
    The Committee directs the departments and agencies funded 
by this bill to address each number listed in the reports in 
their respective operating plans and warns that efforts to 
operate programs at levels contrary to the levels recommended 
and directed in these reports would not be advised.

              OPERATING PLANS AND REPROGRAMMING GUIDELINES

    The Committee includes a provision (section 405) 
establishing the authority by which funding made available to 
the agencies funded by this Act may be reprogrammed for other 
purposes. The provision specifically requires the advance 
approval of the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations 
of any proposal to reprogram funds that:
           creates a new program;
           eliminates a PPA;
           increases funds or personnel for any PPA for 
        which funds have been denied or restricted by the 
        Congress;
           redirects funds that were directed in such 
        reports for a specific activity to a different purpose;
           augments an existing PPA in excess of 
        $5,000,000 or 10 percent, whichever is less;
           reduces an existing PPA by $5,000,000 or 10 
        percent, whichever is less; or
           creates, reorganizes, or restructures 
        offices different from the congressional budget 
        justifications or the table at the end of the Committee 
        report, whichever is more detailed.
    The Committee retains the requirement that each agency 
submit an operating plan to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations not later than 60 days after enactment of this 
Act to establish the baseline for application of reprogramming 
and transfer authorities provided in this Act. Specifically, 
each agency must provide a table for each appropriation with 
columns displaying the budget request; adjustments made by 
Congress; adjustments for rescissions, if appropriate; and the 
fiscal year enacted level. The table shall delineate the 
appropriation both by object class and by PPA. The report also 
must identify items of special Congressional interest. Should 
the agency create, alter, discontinue, or otherwise change any 
program as described in the agency's budget justification, 
those changes must be a part of the agency's operating plan. 
Finally, the agency shall submit with the operating plan a 
summary of the reporting requirements contained in this Act, 
the House and Senate reports, and the statement of the 
managers. The summary should include Inspector General and 
Government Accountability Office reports as well. In certain 
instances, the Committee may direct the agency to submit a 
revised operating plan for approval or may direct changes to 
the operating plan if the plan is not consistent with the 
directives of the conference report and statement of the 
managers.
    The Committee expects the agencies and bureaus to submit 
reprogramming requests in a timely manner and to provide a 
thorough explanation of the proposed reallocations, including a 
detailed justification of increases and reductions and the 
specific impact of proposed changes on the budget request for 
the following fiscal year. Any reprogramming request shall 
include any out-year budgetary impacts and a separate 
accounting of program or mission impacts on estimated carryover 
funds. Reprogramming procedures shall apply to funds provided 
in this Act, unobligated balances from previous appropriations 
Acts that are available for obligation or expenditure in fiscal 
year 2022, and non-appropriated resources such as fee 
collections that are used to meet program requirements in 
fiscal year 2022.
    The Committee expects each agency to manage its programs 
and activities within the amounts appropriated by the Congress. 
The Committee reminds agencies that reprogramming requests 
should be submitted only in the case of an unforeseeable 
emergency or a situation that could not have been anticipated 
when formulating the budget request for the current fiscal 
year. Except in emergency situations, reprogramming requests 
should be submitted no later than June 30, 2022. Further, the 
Committee notes that when an agency submits a reprogramming or 
transfer request to the Committees on Appropriations and does 
not receive identical responses from the House and Senate, it 
is the responsibility of the agency to reconcile the House and 
Senate differences before proceeding and, if reconciliation is 
not possible, to consider the request to reprogram funds 
unapproved.
    The Committee would also like to clarify that this section 
applies to working capital funds of both the Department of 
Transportation (DOT) and Department of Housing and Urban 
Development (HUD) and that no funds may be obligated from 
working capital fund accounts to augment programs, projects, or 
activities for which appropriations have been specifically 
rejected by the Congress, or to increase funds or personnel for 
any PPA above the amounts appropriated by this Act.

                  CONGRESSIONAL BUDGET JUSTIFICATIONS

    Budget justifications are the primary tool used by the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations to evaluate the 
resource requirements and fiscal needs of agencies. The 
Committee is aware that the format and presentation of budget 
materials is largely left to the agency within presentation 
objectives set forth by the Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB). In fact, OMB Circular A-11, part 1 specifically 
instructs agencies to consult with congressional committees 
beforehand. The Committee expects that all agencies funded 
under this Act will heed this directive.
    The Committee expects all of the budget justifications to 
provide the data needed to make appropriate and meaningful 
funding decisions. The Committee continues the direction that 
justifications submitted with the fiscal year 2023 budget 
request by agencies funded under this Act contain the customary 
level of detailed data and explanatory statements to support 
the appropriations requests at the level of detail contained in 
the funding table included at the end of this report. Among 
other items, agencies shall provide a detailed discussion of 
proposed new initiatives, proposed changes in the agency's 
financial plan from prior year enactment, detailed data on all 
programs, and comprehensive information on any office or agency 
restructurings. At a minimum, each agency must also provide 
adequate justification for funding and staffing changes for 
each individual office and materials that compare programs, 
projects, and activities that are proposed for fiscal year 2023 
to the fiscal year 2022 enacted levels.
    The Committee is aware that the analytical materials 
required for review by the Committee are unique to each agency 
in this Act. Therefore, the Committee expects that each agency 
will coordinate with the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations in advance on its planned presentation for its 
budget justification materials in support of the fiscal year 
2023 budget request.

                             OTHER MATTERS

    The Committee directs each of the departments and agencies 
funded by this Act to identify opportunities to prioritize 
resilience, equity, environmental justice, regional efforts, 
and robust stakeholder engagement.
    Resiliency.--The Committee believes that every new 
construction or major rehabilitation project funded by this Act 
should be constructed to the most current relevant standards 
and that these projects should address the risk of structure 
failure or loss of use from natural hazards throughout the 
lifetime of the project. As a measure of responsible fiscal 
prudence, resilient construction and land management practices 
should be integrated into every program funded by this Act.
    Performance measures.--The Committee directs each of the 
departments and agencies funded by this Act to comply with 
title 31 of the United States Code, including the development 
of their organizational priority goals and outcomes such as 
performance outcome measures, output measures, efficiency 
measures, and customer service measures.
    Customer service.--The Committee continues to support 
efforts to improve customer service in accordance with 
executive order 13571. The Committee directs all departments 
and agencies funded by this Act to develop standards to improve 
customer service and incorporate the standards into the 
performance plans required under title 31 of the United States 
Code. Further, the Committee recognizes that not all 
departments and agencies are subject to executive order 13571. 
For such departments and agencies funded by this Act, the 
Committee directs the departments and agencies to make 
continuous improvements and adopt best practices for improving 
customer service.
    Native plant preference.--In undertaking a land management 
activity on lands under the jurisdiction of any of the 
departments or agencies funded by this Act, including 
maintenance and restoration in response to degradation caused 
by human activity or natural events (such as fire, flood, or 
infestation), the Committee continues to direct that it be the 
policy of the aforementioned agencies that preference shall be 
made, to the extent practicable, for the use of locally adapted 
native plant materials.
    Federal advertising.--The Committee understands that, as 
the largest advertiser in the United States, the Federal 
government should work to ensure fair access to its advertising 
contracts for small disadvantaged businesses, businesses owned 
by minorities and women, and local media. As such, the 
Committee directs each department and agency funded by this Act 
to include the following information in its fiscal year 2023 
budget justification: expenditures for fiscal year 2021 and 
2022, respectively, for all contracts for advertising services 
of Small Business Administration-recognized socioeconomic 
subcategory-certified small businesses, as defined in the Small 
Business Act, and all minority-owned businesses, as well as for 
local media.
    Targeted investments in impoverished areas.--The Committee 
supports targeted investments in impoverished areas, including 
areas of persistent poverty. To understand how programs funded 
through the departments and agencies funded by this Act are 
serving these particular areas, House Report 116-106 directed 
such departments and agencies to submit a report on the 
percentage of funds allocated by each program in fiscal years 
2017, 2018, and 2019 and estimates for fiscal year 2020 that 
serve populations living in persistent poverty counties or 
census tracts. House Report 116-452 further directed such 
departments and agencies to update the information with the 
data for the next fiscal year upon completion of the initial 
report required by House Report 116-106.
    The Committee is disappointed that DOT and HUD have not 
completed the report required by House Report 116-106. The 
Committee understands that DOT is working with its operating 
administrations to gather, compile, and analyze this 
information from multiple systems and that there are some 
limitations on the available data based on the programs 
administered by some operating administrations. The Committee 
directs DOT to continue this work, and directs DOT to brief the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on its findings 
no later than 30 days after the completion of the report 
required by House Report 116-106. The Committee notes with 
further disappointment that HUD did not provide a briefing to 
the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on its 
efforts to comply with House Report 116-106 as requested by the 
Committee in April 2021. The Committee directs HUD to complete 
the report required by House Report 116-106, and directs HUD to 
brief the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on its 
findings no later than 30 days after the completion of the 
report required by House Report 116-106. Further, if DOT and 
HUD have not submitted the reports required by House Report 
116-106 within 60 days of enactment of this Act, then the 
Committee directs DOT and HUD to brief the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations no later than 90 days after 
enactment of this Act on the status of their respective 
reports.
    Promoting land use policies and affordable housing 
development.--The Committee is concerned with urban sprawl, 
overwhelming traffic, and lack of housing supply in job-rich 
areas. Therefore, the Committee encourages HUD to consult with 
DOT and issue joint non-binding guidance outlining voluntary 
best practices for land use policies to increase the supply of 
affordable and market-rate housing. This guidance should 
provide recommendations for local, regional, and state land use 
agencies to improve their land use and zoning, such as 
increasing density, reducing minimum lot sizes, creating by-
right development for multi-family homes, streamlining or 
shortening the permitting processes, eliminating impact fees, 
or allowing accessory dwelling units, in order to achieve 
affordable, economically vital, and sustainable communities and 
encourage efficient land use patterns. This guidance should 
also focus on providing best practices to local land use 
agencies and transit agencies who work together to promote 
transit-oriented development, and should consider best 
practices among urban, suburban, and rural communities. The 
Committee urges the Departments to use all tools available to 
encourage a ``complete streets''' approach to transportation 
policy and design.
    Building design.--Since World War II, the United States has 
favored investment in virtual space over physical places, 
individual autonomy over community, and globalization over 
local prosperity. As a result, some cities are sprawling, 
fragmented, carbon-producing, inequitable, unsustainable, and 
disconnected, and prefer individual mobility over human 
flourishing. Few buildings are carefully considered and those 
that are tend to be for the wealthiest. The Committee 
encourages design professionals, social scientists, health 
experts, industry, academia, and the Federal government to 
collaborate on mechanisms that promote cost-effective design 
best practices. This partnership could yield walkable, mixed-
use, culturally rich, diverse, resilient, sustainable, healthy, 
and vibrant communities that empower all people to have lives 
of meaning and purpose. The Committee encourages HUD and DOT to 
coordinate with programs focused on community and livability at 
the Department of Agriculture and the Department of Health and 
Human Services to establish a new framework for design and 
building. HUD and DOT should convene a summit with other 
agencies and outside leaders in planning, architecture, and 
health to create a new framework for community livability, with 
a focus on new concepts for design, funding, and partnerships 
at the local and state levels.
    Website modernization.--By law, all agency websites and 
applications must be mobile device-friendly, consistent in 
appearance, searchable, accessible to individuals with 
disabilities, secure, and designed around user goals, needs, 
and behaviors. The Committee reminds the agencies funded by 
this Act of their obligation to comply with the 21st Century 
Integrated Digital Experience Act (P.L. 115-336), especially 
after the COVID-19 pandemic revealed the value and necessity of 
reliable on-line information and transactions.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Cross-modal coordination for safety.--The Committee is 
aware of a need for improved coordination among modes and the 
important role it plays in safety oversight, especially where 
there is an adoption of cross-modal technology that can 
transform the transportation network. In addition to the work 
of the Highly Automated Safety Systems Center of Excellence 
(HASS-COE), the Committee directs the Secretary to establish a 
Department-wide holistic approach to road safety in order to 
ensure that agencies with responsibilities for road safety 
coordinate their expertise, resources, and approach.
    GAO reports on equity.--Inequitable access to 
transportation in communities nationwide, particularly 
historically marginalized communities, results in inequitable 
access to jobs, health care, and educational opportunities. 
Nationwide, different states and localities approach such 
inequitable access in a variety of ways. Understanding the 
differences in approach and outcomes is an important first step 
to addressing inequality in transportation systems. As a 
result, the Committee directs GAO to examine (1) policies and 
procedures DOT has established to define and promote 
transportation equity, including processes and outcomes from 
surface transportation projects that have resulted in equitable 
outcomes for disadvantaged groups or communities; (2) how DOT 
incorporates equity into its considerations of distribution of 
resources to states and other grantees; and (3) goals, targets 
and metrics that DOT has established to measure transportation 
equity and assess whether Federal surface transportation 
funding has reduced disparities and improved transportation 
equity.
    In addition, the benefits and costs of many transportation 
projects, including their proximity to affordable housing, are 
usually determined by decisions made during state and local 
planning processes. As result, by the time construction on a 
transportation project begins, it is often too late to mitigate 
any inequities that may result for affected communities. The 
Committee directs GAO to examine how equity issues are 
considered during the surface transportation planning process, 
including (1) actions taken by states, local governments, 
regional transportation planning agencies, and MPOs to identify 
existing surface transportation disparities and steps taken to 
address these disparities, (2) processes states, local 
governments, regional transportation planning agencies, and 
MPOs use to identify, collect, and integrate input about 
proposed transportation projects from potentially affected 
communities; (3) policies states, local governments, regional 
transportation planning agencies, and MPOs have in place to 
require amendments to proposed plans to address disparities and 
issues related to inequities in communities potentially 
affected by a plan; and (4) the extent to which DOT and HUD 
coordinate on the planning of Federally-funded transportation 
projects and affordable housing initiatives.
    The Committee directs the GAO to design and initiate such 
audits to fully address these issues, and to establish a 
schedule for such reporting with Committee staff within 6 
months of beginning the audits.
    Open skies.--The Committee continues to urge the Department 
to take steps to ensure that U.S. airline carriers and their 
workers have a fair and equal opportunity to compete in 
accordance with open skies agreements with foreign governments. 
The Committee notes that DOT worked with the State Department 
to reach recent memorandums of agreement with foreign 
governments to ensure transparency, accountability, and 
enforcement remain important tenets of open skies agreements. 
The Committee directs the Department to continue to proactively 
work with the State Department to take appropriate action with 
any foreign governments where government subsidies have 
resulted in market distortion. The Committee directs the 
Department to provide regular updates to the Committee on their 
activities related to the fair enforcement of open skies 
agreements.
    Transportation accessibility.--The Committee continues to 
direct the Secretary of Transportation, in coordination with 
the Administrators of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) 
and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), to establish 
mode-specific accessibility performance measures to be used by 
states, metropolitan planning organizations, and transit 
agencies to assess the degree to which the surface 
transportation system, including public transportation, 
provides transportation connections to economic opportunities, 
including job concentration areas, health care services, child 
care services, and education and workforce training services, 
particularly for disadvantaged populations, and to publish its 
final rule on such performance measures no later than one year 
after enactment of this Act. The Committee recognizes the 
ongoing work by DOT to improve accessibility and mobility 
services and supports the goals of the Coordinating Council on 
Access and Mobility (CCAM) within FTA.
    Highway-rail grade crossing safety.--Highway-rail grade 
crossing collisions are the second leading cause of all rail-
related fatalities in the United States. As noted throughout 
this report, several operating administrations play a role in 
addressing this important safety issue. The Committee 
recommendation provides funding to assist states and 
communities with improving highway-rail grade crossing safety 
through the FHWA under section 130(e) of title 23, United 
States Code, and the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) 
through the consolidated rail infrastructure and safety 
improvements and passenger rail improvement, modernization, and 
expansion competitive grant programs. In addition, the 
Committee recommendation supports the continuation of a public 
education campaign by the National Highway Traffic Safety 
Administration on highway-rail grade crossing safety and FRA's 
efforts to gather and analyze data, improve outreach and 
partnerships, assist communities in identifying Federal funding 
opportunities, and conducting research and development.
    Workforce development.--The Committee notes that in 2019, 
GAO concluded that DOT lacked a strategic framework in its 
workforce development plan. The lack of a strategic framework 
has a damaging impact on the long-term adoption of electric 
vehicle and alternative energy technologies. The committee also 
notes GAO's conclusion that the Bureau of Labor Statistics does 
not track occupational projections relating to public 
transportation, which makes it difficult to understand changes 
and emerging needs in this area. Emerging technologies have the 
potential to revolutionize the market, but the workforce 
transition, and the corresponding safety issues must be 
identified and addressed across DOT's system architecture. 
Within 120 days of enactment of this Act the agency shall 
provide a report to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations on the steps it is taking to address the 
findings in GAO Report 19-290.
    Infrastructure coordinator.--Mexico is the third largest 
trading partner for the United States. The Committee continues 
to support strengthening the coordination between DOT and other 
relevant Federal agencies to improve freight infrastructure 
development at the southwest border, which is critical to 
maintaining this bilateral trade relationship. The Committee 
commends DOT for designating the Office of International 
Transportation and Trade (OITT) in OST to lead departmental 
efforts to coordinate border transportation infrastructure 
initiatives and projects with Mexico. The Committee directs 
OITT to work with the General Services Administration (GSA), 
the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and other relevant 
agencies to facilitate more efficient development of 
infrastructure projects.
    Ports of entry (POE).--The Committee directs DOT to 
coordinate with the Office of Management and Budget, GSA, and 
DHS, including U.S. Customs and Border Protection, regarding 
its efforts in support of those entities in opening and closing 
POEs that affect commercial motor vehicle traffic, including 
providing sufficient time to plan for operational and staffing 
changes. The Committee strongly encourages DOT to share 
relevant information with these entities, when appropriate, and 
to consider economic impacts, safety, and input from 
stakeholders transporting commercial goods when making 
operational changes to POEs. The Committee directs DOT to brief 
the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations no later than 
60 days after enactment of this Act on its efforts in this 
regard.
    Value capture.--The Committee is aware that both FTA and 
FHWA have issued extensive guidance on value capture 
techniques, the use of a portion of increased property values 
created as a result of public infrastructure investment. 
Because value capture strategies are usually part of a mixed 
funding and financing package, the Committee believes that 
value capture can be a tool for economic development and as a 
non-Federal source of funding for transportation 
infrastructure, such as transit and passenger rail projects. 
The Committee encourages DOT to continue to support state and 
local governments exploring the use of value capture 
strategies.
    Climate change and transportation.-- According to the 
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) the transportation sector 
accounts for almost 30 percent of United States greenhouse gas 
(GHG) emissions. The Committee recognizes the urgent necessity 
of reducing such emissions in order to mitigate the impacts of 
global climate change. The Committee encourages DOT to 
integrate considerations of climate impacts centrally into all 
aspects of transportation planning and funding, including but 
not limited to, innovative electric powered, zero-emissions 
transit systems such as aerial gondolas and tramways, 
monorails, and people movers, and, no later than 18 months 
after enactment of this Act, directs the Secretary to submit to 
the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations a report 
outlining DOT's plans to reduce GHG emissions in line with the 
United States Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) under 
the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
    Distressed coal communities.--To diversify and enhance 
economic opportunities, the Committee directs the Secretary to 
prioritize discretionary funding to distressed counties within 
the Central Appalachian region to help communities and regions 
that have been affected by job losses in coal mining, coal 
power plant operations, and coal-related supply chain 
industries due to the economic downturn of the coal industry.
    Nationally significant freight and highway (INFRA) 
projects.--The Committee is concerned that the competitive 
grant process for INFRA includes limited transparency into the 
evaluation process. The Committee directs DOT, within 60 days 
of announcing fiscal year 2022 INFRA awards, to offer briefings 
to all applicants that did not receive an award in order to 
explain the factors that negatively impacted the application 
and to make recommendations for improving the application for 
future grant rounds. Further, within 60 days of announcing 
grant awards, DOT is directed to publish on its website a list 
of all fiscal year 2022 applications received along with the 
names of the applicant organizations and the funding amounts 
requested. More transparency will allow sponsors to improve 
applications in future competitions. Further, the Committee 
encourages DOT to give priority consideration to projects which 
address freight capacity on interstates where truck traffic is 
growing at a faster pace than passenger vehicle traffic.
    Coordination with the National Transportation Safety Board 
(NTSB).--The Committee is pleased by the periodic and 
productive meetings between the technical and managerial staff 
of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Pipeline and 
Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) and their 
respective investigative NTSB offices regarding open NTSB 
safety recommendations. These meetings are beneficial for 
maintaining focus on developing and implementing effective 
responses to these recommendations, especially the aviation, 
highway, rail, and pipeline recommendations on the NTSB's Most 
Wanted list. The Committee recognizes that most operating 
administrations meet with the NTSB and encourages these same 
operating administrations to form strong partnerships with the 
NTSB in order to further DOT's primary mission of safety.
    Green infrastructure for rail or multi-modal transportation 
hubs.--The Committee encourages the Secretary to allow slow 
green infrastructure on or near rail or multi-modal 
transportation hubs to be eligible for Federal funding 
administered by DOT. This includes, but is not limited to, 
activities that would increase green space surrounding the 
structure such as urban trees, vegetation, and enhanced 
streetscapes, including energy-efficient lighting. These 
elements not only provide opportunities to mitigate 
transportation pollution, improve air quality, and control 
storm water runoff but in some cases could also provide or 
enhance the structure's security elements and help conserve and 
reduce the structure's energy use. They also serve as a 
welcoming component for passengers entering or exiting a rail 
or multi-modal transportation hub.
    Major metropolitan cities.--In certain cases, state and 
regional transportation authorities are controlled by officials 
with little or no connection to the major urban areas served by 
their agencies or to the residents of the communities who are 
directly affected by decisions made by such officials. This can 
lead to inefficient and undesirable allocations of public 
resources to the detriment of already marginalized communities. 
The Committee looks forward to DOT's implementation of 
Executive Order 13983: Advancing Racial Equity and Support for 
Underserved Community Through the Federal Government. 
Subsequently, within 180 days of such implementation, the 
Committee directs the Secretary to report to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations on the benefits and 
obstacles to making direct allocations of funds to major 
metropolitan cities and local governments.
    North-south four-lane highways.--The Committee encourages 
DOT to work with states on projects to complete north-south 
four-lane highways, especially in states with no existing 
north-south four-lane highways and where there are significant 
freight traffic and safety concerns.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation provides $57,000,000 for 
research and technology activities.
    PNT technologies.--The Committee welcomes the findings in 
DOT's January 2021 ``Complementary PNT and GPS Backup 
Technologies Demonstration Report'' and notes that the National 
Timing Resilience and Security Act of 2018 (Section 514 of 
Public Law 115-282) provides for multiple technologies and 
solutions for GPS backup. To prepare for the implementation of 
the technologies identified by DOT's report or others the 
Department, in coordination with the Departments of Defense and 
Homeland Security and the National Executive Committee for 
Space-Based PNT, may subsequently determine are necessary, the 
Committee directs DOT to develop system requirements for PNT 
functions that support safety-critical services and to develop 
standards, test procedures, and monitoring capabilities to 
ensure that PNT services meet these safety and resilience 
requirements. The Committee directs DOT to provide its plan to 
the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on how it 
will develop these requirements and standards and implement the 
technologies within six months after enactment of this Act. The 
Committee understands the need to develop complementary PNT 
user adoption approaches, and therefore directs the Secretary 
to report its findings and recommendations enabling GPS backup 
and complementary PNT to the Committee within 180 days of 
providing the requested implementation plan. Further, the 
Committee provides up to $10,000,000 to assist DOT in carrying 
out its recommendations.
    The Committee also provides $7,000,000, for DOT to engage 
in Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) performance 
monitoring and interference detection capability and to 
implement Executive Order 13905 and GPS Signal Authentication.
    Transportation Research Board (TRB) reports on equity.--The 
Committee recommendation includes $3,000,000 for a series of 
studies by the TRB of the National Academy of Sciences to 
identify, assess, and develop metrics for measuring equity in 
surface transportation with a particular focus on outcomes. The 
Committee directs TRB to analyze current data and metrics on 
equity to establish a baseline of currently available means for 
measuring equity outcomes, which should be the subject of a 
first report. Subsequently, the Committee directs TRB to study 
opportunities to improve data and the use of such data for the 
development of new metrics on equity and to make 
recommendations on how those metrics can be integrated into the 
transportation planning process. The study shall examine data 
and metrics for measuring equity to address concerns such as 
infrastructure barriers that cut off individuals and 
communities from essential jobs and services (including those 
services that are often rendered inadequate during natural and 
man-made disasters) and that are needed for the development of 
strategies to advance outcomes in economic and community 
development in public transportation-dependent populations. The 
study shall also consider new and innovative sources of data 
and analytic methods for measuring equity for such 
transportation planning and decision-making purposes.
    University Transportation Centers (UTCs).--UTCs play a key 
role in conducting research and development activities. The 
Committee continues to support UTCs, which are authorized under 
section 5505 of title 49, United States Code, and funded 
through FHWA. In addition to the amounts provided under the 
Investing in a New Vision for the Environment and Surface 
Transportation (INVEST) in America Act (H.R. 3684), the 
Committee provides $5,000,000 under this heading for the 
National Institute for Congestion Reduction and the National 
Center for Transportation Infrastructure and Durability and 
Life-Extension for which the Committee provided funds in fiscal 
year 2018. The Committee directs that of the amounts made 
available under this heading, no more than $250,000 shall be 
available for coordination, evaluation, and oversight in 
addition to the amounts provided under 49 U.S.C. 5505(d)(3).
    Consistent with the INVEST in America Act, the Committee 
encourages the Department to solicit applications from UTCs 
that promote safety and improve the environment with the goal 
of improving outcomes on equity and resiliency. The goals of 
equity and resiliency dovetail with research that could be 
conducted at a UTC designed to serve as a clearinghouse for 
pandemic related transportation research. In addition, the 
Committee supports the establishment of a National Center of 
Excellence for Rural Transportation under the auspices of the 
UTC program at a university-based transportation research 
institute with a history of conducting research on rural 
transportation challenges and with relevant laboratories and 
facilities necessary to conduct the research.
    Bridge clearinghouse.--The Committee directs DOT to work 
with relevant UTCs to implement an Accelerated Bridge 
Technologies Clearinghouse to advance new and advanced 
transportation infrastructure techniques and materials for new 
innovations in bridge technology. The clearinghouse shall 
provide a platform for bridge and structure stakeholders to 
find technically robust and unbiased information and reports 
that evaluate innovations while facilitating the acceptance and 
implementation of new bridge and structure materials and 
technologies. The Committee provides up to $10,000,000 under 
this heading for such a clearinghouse.
    Fair access to science and technology research.--The 
Committee encourages DOT to continue its efforts towards 
increasing public access to the results of Federally-funded 
scientific research. In the fiscal year 2023 budget request, 
the Committee directs the Department to include progress on the 
plan published on December 16, 2015.
    Modeling and simulation.--The Committee encourages the 
Assistant Secretary for Research and Technology to support the 
development of gaming, experimentation, modeling, and 
simulation (GEMS) approaches to accelerate the design of 
transportation systems, including but not limited to, 
computational simulation, data analytics, and digital twins 
technology, with the objective of improving safety, alleviating 
congestion and shortening commute times, and enabling a more 
efficient flow of commercial goods.
    Highly Automated Safety Systems Center of Excellence (HASS 
COE).--As automated systems and technologies become 
increasingly widespread, the Committee continues to believe 
that the safety of the traveling public jointly depends on 
innovation by technology developers and owners and operators 
coupled with appropriate Federal regulation and effective 
oversight. The Committee appreciates the progress that the HASS 
COE has made over the past year, including hiring a Director, 
and advertising for a Deputy Director of Program Development 
and Strategy and a Chief Scientist. However, the Committee is 
unhappy that it has not received an overdue staffing plan for 
which DOT was directed to provide not later than February 22, 
2021, and directs DOT to provide the staffing plan to the House 
and Senate Committees on Appropriation with all due speed.
    The Committee looks forward to the HASS COE being fully 
staffed and working to develop internal capacity within the 
Department both by hiring outside staff and training staff 
already at DOT. The Committee supports using all available 
flexibilities to achieve the full-time, technical expertise 
needed by the Department. Of the amounts provided under this 
heading, the Committee provides $5,000,000 for the HASS COE.
    Autonomous vehicles. (AV)--The Committee recognizes that 
any amount of AV development and deployment will require DOT to 
collaborate with private-industry and other academic 
researchers to ensure the safety of the technology. Amounts 
made available under this heading are available for the testing 
of autonomous vehicles. In particular, the Committee is 
concerned about testing that replicates the GNSS in dense urban 
environments where the GNSS signal is often hampered by issues 
of lines of sight, signal multipath, and signal interference, 
severely disrupting AV operations. The Committee applauds the 
collaboration between DOT and the military cyber center in 
Augusta, Georgia, and encourages the continuation of this work 
in order to design and develop a testing lab which allows the 
government and industry developers to test hardware and 
software in a way that mirrors the urban environment.
    In addition, rural communities must not be left behind from 
advancements in AVs. The Committee encourages DOT to 
contemplate a hybrid approach to allowing business and 
communities, including rural communities, to engage, prepare 
for, and benefit from AV deployments. As part of the hybrid 
approach, the Committee encourages DOT to focus on first and 
last mile solutions by developing a regional demonstration 
project designed to demonstrate automated driving system 
feasibility that incorporates low speed AVs.

                  NATIONAL INFRASTRUCTURE INVESTMENTS

    The national infrastructure investments program (also known 
as RAISE and formerly known as both BUILD and TIGER) was 
created in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (P.L. 
111-5) to provide grants and credit assistance to state and 
local governments, tribal governments, United States 
territories, transit agencies, port authorities, metropolitan 
planning organizations, or a combination of such entities to 
improve the nation's transportation infrastructure. Eligible 
projects include highways and bridges, public transportation, 
freight and passenger rail, port infrastructure, and bicycle 
and pedestrian improvements. The national infrastructure 
investments program awards funds on a competitive basis to 
projects that will have a significant local or regional impact.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation provides $1,200,000,000 for 
the national infrastructure investments program to support 
multimodal, multijurisdictional transportation projects that 
are more difficult to accomplish through traditional 
transportation programs. Key tenets of this program include its 
flexibility and the ability for any public entity to apply 
directly and not through a state department of transportation. 
RAISE also fosters collaboration and leverages non-Federal 
investments from private, state, and local sources. The 
Committee has consistently heard from communities large and 
small on the difference RAISE grants have made in improving 
safety, state of good repair, economic competitiveness, 
environmental sustainability, and quality of life.
    The Committee remains concerned that in the past several 
years, DOT has moved away from the original intent of the 
program to fund multi-modal projects and overemphasized funding 
for road projects. The Committee directs DOT to restore the 
emphasis on multi-modal, transformative projects that 
facilitate competitiveness. To address the needs of these 
projects and to restore the original intent of the program, the 
Committee raises the maximum grant size to $100,000,000. The 
Committee reiterates to DOT and to potential applicants that 
RAISE grants support a broad variety of transportation projects 
including, but not limited to, highway, bridge, and road 
projects; public transportation projects; passenger and freight 
rail projects including high speed rail projects; port 
infrastructure improvements; intermodal projects, including 
commercial, transit, and intermodal parking garages; bicycle 
and pedestrian projects; multimodal infrastructure; and 
infrastructure reuse projects.
    Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO).--The Committee 
applauds DOT for revising the fiscal year 2021 NOFO to include 
climate change, environmental justice, and racial equity within 
the existing selection criteria. For fiscal year 2022, the 
Committee directs the Secretary to consider the impact of a 
project on improving racial and economic equity and reducing 
GHG emissions, and directs the Secretary to prioritize such 
projects in the distribution of funds.
    Funding distribution.--The Committee directs DOT to strive 
for an equitable distribution of funding amongst modes and to 
give priority to multi-modal projects for which Federal funding 
provides the marginal funding required to complete the project. 
The Committee notes that investments in urban areas can provide 
significant benefits to surrounding areas, including rural 
areas. In distributing funds provided under this heading, the 
Committee directs the Secretary to ensure an equitable 
distribution of funds between urban and rural areas and amongst 
transportation modes including public transit and passenger 
rail.
    Planning grants.--The Committee recognizes that planning 
support can be critical for local communities seeking to make 
investments in infrastructure, including transit and transit-
oriented development. As a result, the Committee provides 
$40,000,000 for the planning, preparation or design of 
projects. Of this amount, $20,000,000 is provided for any 
eligible project located in or directly benefiting counties and 
census tracts experiencing persistent poverty or any territory 
or possession of the United States, $10,000,000 is provided for 
small and mid-sized communities, and $10,000,000 is provided 
for any area. The Committee directs that planning grants should 
emphasize transit, transit-oriented development, and multimodal 
projects.
    Shared mobility operators.--The Committee notes that shared 
mobility operators can be an important component of the 
transportation network, especially for first and last mile 
connections. The Committee encourages DOT to include their 
operations as eligible for funding under a NOFO when the 
operators partner with a grantee.
    Critical infrastructure investments.--The Committee 
encourages the Secretary to work with local governments to 
identify needed investment in surface transportation projects 
that will provide additional road capacity at congested or 
dangerous intersections, especially involving rail lines.

                    THRIVING COMMUNITIES INITIATIVE

    The Thriving Communities Initiative identifies and provides 
support for communities with persistent barriers that prevent 
access to opportunities such as jobs, schools, and businesses. 
The program provides technical assistance and planning grants 
to improve access to opportunity through transportation 
infrastructure improvements.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation provides $100,000,000 for the 
thriving communities initiative.
    Thriving communities initiative.--The Committee recognizes 
that historical and entrenched inequities have created a cycle 
of disinvestment in communities across the country. Many of 
these communities were once thriving and populated rural and 
urban areas before the introduction of the Federal interstate 
highway system, which undermined the economic stability, social 
connections, and physical and geographic fabric of these areas, 
disproportionately impacting communities of color. In effect, 
people within these communities across generations have been 
disproportionately impacted by highway traffic emissions, 
pedestrian fatalities, lack of access to fresh food or health 
care, struggling business corridors, and inadequate supply of 
quality affordable housing. The Committee recognizes the need 
for greater planning and capacity building to advance these 
communities and the important role coordination at the Federal, 
state, and local levels can play in nurturing thriving 
communities. As a result, the Committee provides funding under 
this heading for DOT, in collaboration with other agencies, to 
facilitate community and regional planning efforts that 
integrate housing and transportation with a focus on promoting 
equity, environmental justice, and resilient infrastructure. In 
addition, the Committee provides funding under Policy, 
Development, and Research within the Department of Housing and 
Urban Development (HUD) to support the thriving communities 
program. The Committee directs DOT, to the extent possible, to 
fund grants or cooperative agreements in a variety of 
geographic areas, including urban and rural communities.
    Federal agencies such as HUD, the U.S. Army Corps of 
Engineers (USACE), the EPA, the Department of Health and Human 
Services (HHS), the Department of Education (ED), the 
Department of Labor (DOL), and others all play key roles in 
developing and sustaining thriving communities. However, it is 
often difficult for local communities, especially lower-income 
and disadvantaged communities, to leverage resources across 
multiple Federal agencies and receive targeted, coordinated 
technical assistance. As such, the Committee directs DOT to 
work with HUD, USACE, EPA, HHS, ED, DOL, and any other Federal 
agencies DOT deems appropriate to identify Federal resources 
which could be leveraged by the thriving communities 
initiative, improve cross-agency coordination with respect to 
NOFOs, where appropriate, and to consider incentives for 
potential applicants to plan for or execute Federal funding 
comprehensively toward the goal of addressing persistent 
barriers that prevent a community from thriving. The Committee 
directs DOT to brief the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations on its initial cross-agency engagement and 
findings no later than 120 days after the enactment of this 
Act.

    Budget request, fiscal year 2022..................       +10,000,000
 

    The National Surface Transportation and Innovative Finance 
Bureau (Bureau) is authorized under section 9001 of the Fixing 
America's Surface Transportation (FAST) Act (P.L. 114-94). The 
Bureau administers and coordinates the Department's existing 
transportation finance programs and INFRA competitive grant 
program and provides technical assistance and outreach to 
communities on financing and funding opportunities for 
transportation infrastructure.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation provides $13,800,000 for the 
Bureau.
    Planning grants to assist areas of persistent poverty.--The 
Committee recognizes that planning support can be critical for 
communities seeking to invest in transportation infrastructure. 
Unfortunately, communities that lack the resources or expertise 
to adequately plan for such investments experience greater 
challenges in securing competitive grants to assist with 
project construction. Therefore, the Committee provides 
$10,000,000 for a new competitive grant program for planning 
grants to assist areas of persistent poverty. These planning 
grants would support pre-construction activities including 
planning, engineering, design, environmental analysis, 
feasibility studies, and finance plans for highway, bridge, or 
road projects, bicycle and pedestrian projects, transit 
projects, passenger and freight rail projects, port 
infrastructure improvement projects, airport improvement 
projects, and intermodal projects that are located in or 
directly benefit counties and census tracts experiencing 
persistent poverty or any territory or possession of the United 
States.

       RAILROAD REHABILITATION AND IMPROVEMENT FINANCING PROGRAM

    The railroad rehabilitation and improvement financing 
(RRIF) program was established in the Transportation Equity Act 
for the 21st Century (P.L. 105-78) to provide direct loans and 
loan guarantees to state and local governments, government-
sponsored entities, and railroads. Credit assistance under the 
program may be used for rehabilitating or developing rail 
equipment and facilities, developing or establishing intermodal 
facilities, and transit-oriented development.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation allows the credit risk premium 
for RRIF loans to be eligible for grants under the national 
infrastructure investments program.
    RRIF credit risk premium (CRP).--The Committee directs the 
Department to expedite repayments for cohorts that have 
satisfied the terms of their loan agreements, and to diligently 
oversee the remaining cohort that has outstanding loans to 
ensure borrowers who have repaid their loans are able to 
receive their CRP once all loans have been satisfied.

    The cyber security initiatives account is an effort to 
close performance gaps in the DOT's cyber security. The account 
includes support for essential program enhancements, 
infrastructure improvements, and contractual resources to 
enhance the security of the Department's computer network and 
to reduce the risk of security breaches.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation provides $39,400,000 to 
provide the necessary resources for DOT to significantly 
enhance its cybersecurity program and capabilities, as well as 
to maintain existing cybersecurity capabilities and services.
    The Committee is alarmed by the increases in cyberattacks 
and recognizes the importance of DOT upgrading its systems. A 
security breach at DOT could have devastating consequences for 
commerce, aviation, or national security. As a result, the 
Committee provides funds to support the implementation of key 
cybersecurity initiatives and to improve DOT's overall 
cybersecurity risk management, oversight and compliance, 
identity, credentialing and access management, and enterprise 
cybersecurity functions.

    This appropriation finances research activities and studies 
related to the planning, analysis, and information development 
used in the formulation of national transportation policies and 
plans. It also finances the staff necessary to conduct these 
efforts. The overall program is carried out primarily through 
contracts with other Federal agencies, educational 
institutions, non-profit research organizations, and private 
firms.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation provides $11,297,000 for 
transportation planning, research, and development activities, 
of which $1,000,000 is for the Interagency Infrastructure 
Permitting Improvement Center.
    Non-traditional and emerging transportation technology 
(NETT) council.--The Committee recognizes the growth and 
innovation in new transportation technologies. The NETT 
council, or a similar body, can develop DOT-wide process, 
solutions, and best practices for identifying and managing 
multi-modal innovation including non-traditional and emerging 
transportation technologies and projects. The Committee directs 
DOT to conduct research to better understand the safety, 
interoperability, cybersecurity, privacy, and regulatory needs 
of these innovation and technologies. Of the amounts provided 
under this heading, the Committee provides up to $1,000,000 for 
such activities.

    The Working Capital Fund (WCF) was created to provide 
common administrative services to DOT's operating 
administrations and outside entities that contract for the 
fund's services. The WCF operates on a fee-for-service basis 
and receives no direct appropriations. It is fully self-
sustaining and must achieve full cost recovery.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends a limitation of $419,173,000 on 
the WCF, which fully supports the WCF's administration and 
information technology (IT) activities for the Department and 
the WCF's commodity IT shared services initiative. The 
limitation does not support non-commodity, programmatic IT 
consolidation in the WCF. The Committee continues to stipulate 
that the limitation is only for services provided to DOT, not 
other entities. Further, the Committee directs that, as much as 
possible, services shall be provided on a competitive basis.

businesses owned by minorities and women in competing for 
contracting opportunities with the department and department-
funded contracts or grants for transportation-related projects. 
The office also provides technical and financial assistance, 
bonding education, training, counseling, and procurement 
assistance, and administers the Department's Small Business 
Transportation Resource Center program.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation provides $6,500,000 for the 
small and disadvantaged business utilization and outreach 
account.
    Women in transportation initiative (WITI).--The DOT Office 
of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization administers the 
WITI, which helps place qualified female college students in 
transportation-related internships in the public and private 
sectors. This program serves to increase the participation of 
women in the transportation industry, creates ladders of 
opportunity for young women in STEM, and strengthens 
transportation-related small businesses and stakeholders. The 
Committee includes funds under this heading to ensure continued 
support for the WITI program.
    Disadvantaged business enterprise (DBE) definition.--The 
Committee notes the difference between the revenue caps applied 
to DBE under the definitions used by the Small Business 
Administration (SBA) and DOT. The Committee directs DOT to 
consider revising its definition to make consistent a cap that 
is equal to that of SBA, which is $15.7 million higher.

    The essential air service (EAS) program provides subsidies 
to air carriers to maintain a minimal level of scheduled air 
service to small communities that had received air service 
prior to Airline Deregulation Act of 1978. Since 1998, the 
source of funding for the EAS program has been ``overflight 
fees,'' which are charged to carriers for Federal Aviation 
Administration navigational and surveillance services for 
flights that traverse, but neither take off from nor land in, 
the United States.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    In addition, the Coronavirus Response and Relief 
Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (P.L. 116-260) included 
$23,332,000 for the EAS program to prevent, prepare for, and 
respond to COVID-19.
    The Committee directs the Department to utilize all 
collected overflight fees, including accumulated unobligated 
balances, and provides an additional $247,700,000 for this 
vital link between small communities and the nation.

    The Committee recommendation provides $11,000,000 for 
transition to a zero-emission vehicle fleet within DOT. Funds 
are available for the acquisition and deployment of zero-
emission vehicles and the infrastructure to support such 
vehicles such as charging and refueling infrastructure.

  ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISIONS--OFFICE OF THE SECRETARY OF TRANSPORTATION

    Section 101 prohibits the Office of the Secretary of 
Transportation from approving assessments or reimbursable 
agreements pertaining to funds appropriated to the operating 
administrations in this Act, unless such assessments or 
agreements have completed the normal reprogramming process for 
Congressional notification.
    Section 102 requires the Secretary to post on the internet 
a schedule of all Council on Credit and Finance meetings, 
agendas, and meeting minutes.
    Section 103 allows the Department's WCF to provide payments 
in advance to vendors for the Federal transit pass fringe 
benefit program and to provide full or partial payments to, and 
to accept reimbursements from, Federal agencies for transit 
benefit distribution services.

circumstances.
    Section 108 requires Congressional notification before the 
Department provides credit assistance under the TIFIA program.

                    Federal Aviation Administration

    The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is responsible 
for the safety of civil aviation, navigation and surveillance, 
and airports. The Federal government's regulatory role in civil 
aviation dates back to 1926. When the Department of 
Transportation began its operations in 1967, the FAA became one 
of several modal administrations within the Department. The 
FAA's mission expanded in 1995 with the transfer of the Office 
of Commercial Space Transportation from the Office of the 
Secretary and contracted in December 2001 with the transfer of 
civil aviation security activities to the Transportation 
Security Administration.
    Next Generation of Air Traffic Control (NextGen).--The 
Committee places a high priority on NextGen programs and 
provides resources in the operations, facilities and equipment, 
and research, engineering, and development accounts to 
modernize air traffic control along with private sector 
stakeholders.
    NextGen Advisory Committee (NAC).--The NAC includes an 
appropriate mix of the aviation community, including 
representatives from general aviation, commercial aviation, 
labor organizations, airports, local community representatives, 
and the Federal government. The Committee supports the current 
diverse NAC membership and believes that the NAC performs an 
important role in setting priorities for the FAA's air traffic 
control modernization efforts. The Committee encourages the FAA 
to implement NAC recommendations and directs the FAA to provide 
an annual update on the status of NAC recommendations to the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Aviation safety.--Safety is required of every product, 
process, and person, including passengers, in the national 
airspace system. Every achievement in aircraft design, 
manufacturing, and maintenance; airport operations; and air 
traffic control should be managed and measured in terms of 
safety without commercial advantage to any manufacturer, 
operator, technology, or airport. The Committee continues to 
support a systems and interdisciplinary approach to aviation 
safety to identify the root causes, circumstances, and 
conditions that increase the likelihood of human error and to 
minimize the frequency and impact of human error.
    Consistent with the request, the Committee provides an 
increase of $57,239,000 within the Operations account. This is 
the third increase in a series of investments to review and 
respond to the numerous recommendations made by multiple safety 
oversight entities that completed or have yet to complete their 
review or investigation of the 737 MAX accidents or the 
aircraft certification process in general.
    A significant amount of this funding increase is dedicated 
to numerous initiatives to enhance aviation safety and 
oversight, including the hiring of inspectors, engineers, human 
factors specialists, and software and cybersecurity experts, 
among others, in Aircraft Certification (AIR) and Flight 
Standards (AFS). In making these new hires, the Committee 
reminds the FAA to seek highly specialized candidates who are 
motivated by the FAA's mission, appreciate the non-pecuniary 
benefits of public service, and have great intellectual 
curiosity about the fast-changing nature of aviation 
technology. With a more expansive Aviation Safety (AVS) 
workforce, the FAA can make full use of the Aircraft Evaluation 
Group to provide an operational perspective to engineering in 
the aircraft certification process, operationalize the 
Organization Designation Authorization (ODA) Office to 
standardize the oversight of ODA unit members, and promulgate 
statutorily required regulations on safety management systems.
    In addition to hiring, the FAA can augment its workforce 
with cost-effective on-line and classroom training, as 
appropriate. Within the funds for AVS and in accordance with 
the Aircraft Certification, Safety, and Accountability Act 
(P.L. 116-260), amounts are available for engineers, 
inspectors, and other subject matter experts to continue 
developing their knowledge of new and emerging technologies in 
systems design, flight controls, principles of aviation safety, 
system oversight, and certification project management.
    In the aviation safety workplan required by the bill, the 
Committee directs the FAA to include the actual and estimated 
number of attrition of AVS employees by job series from 2011 to 
2026 and its plans for implementing the two recommendations 
made in GAO-21-94 in the context of carrying out the mandates 
in the Aircraft Certification, Safety, and Accountability Act 
(P.L. 116-260).
    The Committee directs the FAA to provide quarterly progress 
reports to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on 
its action plan in response to the recommendations of the NTSB, 
the DOT Special Committee to Review FAA's Aircraft 
Certification Process, the Joint Authorities Technical Review, 
and the Indonesian National Transportation Safety Committee.
    In order to be a global leader in aviation safety, the FAA 
actively participates in and supports the International Civil 
Aviation Organization at its headquarters in Montreal, Canada 
and regional offices around the world. The FAA also has small 
number of employees stationed overseas to engage and advise 
foreign civil aviation authorities on aviation standards, 
safety, and policies. The Committee recognizes the importance 
of these bilateral and multilateral relationships and 
especially encourages the FAA to work with countries that do 
not meet the criteria of the International Aviation Safety 
Assessment program.
    Authorization acts.--The Committee directs the FAA to 
submit a report to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations on March 2, 2022, and September 8, 2022, on the 
status of implementation of the provisions in the FAA 
Reauthorization Act of 2018 (P.L. 115-254) and the Aircraft 
Certification, Safety, and Accountability Act (P.L. 116-260), 
including a list of all mandates and associated deadlines, the 
primary office responsible for executing each mandate, and 
actions taken to date on implementing each mandate.
    Central Appalachia.--The Committee again requests the FAA 
to review air navigation needs in Central Appalachia and the 
potential benefits of transponder landing system, or similar 
technologies to enhance safety and efficiency in the region.
    Cockpit voice and flight data recorder regulations.--The 
Committee is concerned that the FAA has not updated Federal 
Aviation Regulations (FARs) for cockpit voice and flight data 
recorders (CV/FDRs) as directed in the Transportation, Housing 
and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 
2018 (P.L. 115-141). This is a problem that has remained 
unresolved for far too long, and the complete and timely 
recovery of CV/FDRs is essential in determining the cause of 
commercial aviation accidents in a timely manner. The Committee 
continues to be interested in advanced technologies that enable 
the complete and rapid recovery of CV/FDR data without an 
underwater search and recovery effort, including automatic 
deployable flight recorders. The Committee understands that 
acceptable technologies exist that meet International Civil 
Aviation Organization (ICAO) requirements, but that the 
corresponding CV/FDRs have not been harmonized to allow their 
use, resulting in uncertain certification and installation 
requirements for aircraft manufacturers and airlines wishing to 
voluntarily install such technologies. The Committee directs 
the FAA to formally update all FARs and any other necessary 
U.S. regulations to enable the voluntary installation and 
certification of FAA approved technologies in compliance with 
U.S. and international standards for commercial aircraft by not 
later than June 1, 2023.
    Commercial tour flights.--The Committee looks forward to 
the FAA's report as required by the Consolidated Appropriations 
Act of 2021 (P.L. 116-260) on its responses to the NTSB on 
safety recommendations regarding commercial air tour flights 
flying under 14 C.F.R. Pt. 91 and Pt. 135, including what 
action the FAA has taken on each recommendation and why or why 
none was taken.
    Community engagement and noise.--The Committee recognizes 
the need for a higher caliber of transparency and participation 
in discussions about airport and aircraft noise, as evidenced 
by the multiple lawsuits brought on by metroplex projects. 
Conversations between the FAA and community residents alone are 
wholly inadequate. Airports, airlines, pilots, state and local 
officials, residential developers, and real estate agents also 
bear some responsibility for preventing and resolving community 
noise concerns, such as compatible land use, construction 
methods and materials for noise reduction, disclosure of 
existing and future noise issues, voluntary noise abatement 
operating procedures, and equitable enforcement of noise 
ordinances. The FAA may not have jurisdiction over all these 
matters, but it does have the ability to convene and the 
technical capability to collect, analyze, and distribute 
information about civil aviation activity. The Committee 
encourages the FAA, when appropriate, to invite Federal 
agencies that operate military, law enforcement, or rescue 
aircraft, such as the Departments of Defense and Homeland 
Security, to participate in community noise events.
    In furtherance of this goal, the Committee provides an 
increase of not less than $8,000,000 in the Operations account 
to support regular engagement with communities affected by 
noise. These funds are primarily to be used to provide on-line, 
real-time, authoritative information to the public about 
airport operations and aircraft position and altitude, respond 
to questions and complaints from public, make aggregated 
information from the FAA noise portal available to the public, 
and ensure FAA participation and technical analysis at 
roundtables, workshops, and other public forums about noise.
    After publishing the results of a nationwide survey on 
aircraft noise annoyance, the FAA is undertaking a 
comprehensive noise policy review which includes, but is not 
limited, to a reexamination of noise metrics. The Committee is 
pleased that the FAA is challenging its own long-held beliefs 
about noise, including whether the day-night average sound 
level (DNL) is the appropriate metric and whether 65 decibels 
(dB) is the appropriate threshold for noise tolerance. Since 
the regulation of noise is rooted in the National Environmental 
Protection Act, the Committee directs the FAA to consult with 
the Federal Interagency Committee on Aviation Noise and the 
Council on Environmental Quality on the implications that this 
noise policy review may have on fields and industries outside 
of aviation. The Committee further directs the FAA to provide 
an update on the noise policy review process, participants, and 
timetable not less than 90 days after the date of enactment of 
this Act.
    The Committee looks forward to the report on activities 
undertaken by the Regional Ombudsmen, who serve as the regional 
liaison on issues regarding aircraft noise, pollution, and 
safety, as required by the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 
2021 (P.L. 116-260).
    The Committee appreciates the GAO's report on helicopter 
noise (GAO-21-200) in Washington, D.C. and is pleased that the 
FAA agrees with the GAO's recommendation that it needs to 
consistently and fully share noise complaints with helicopter 
operators and pilots and that they, in turn, need to share the 
same with the FAA in order to develop an effective strategy to 
address these complaints. The Committee directs the FAA to 
provide progress reports to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations on the implementation of this recommendation and 
to consider its application nationwide.
    Contract tower program.--The Committee recommendation 
includes $178,000,000 for the contract tower program, including 
the contract tower cost share program. The Committee continues 
to strongly support the FAA contract tower program as a cost-
effective and efficient way to provide air traffic control 
services to smaller airports across the country. The Committee 
expects the FAA to continue to operate the 258 contract towers 
currently in the program, annualize funding for towers that 
will be added in 2021, and provide full-year funding for new 
airports expected to be added to the program in fiscal year 
2022.
    FAA organization chart.--To understand how the FAA's 
organizational structure reflects its strategic and performance 
goals, the Committee directs the FAA to submit to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations accurate and comprehensive 
organizational charts of each service, division, and office not 
later than December 1, 2021. In addition, the FAA shall submit 
a business case for each organizational chart that outlines its 
function, statutory authority, chain of command, span of 
control, and interdependencies.
    Fuel dumping.--The Committee reiterates its concern over 
the fuel dump that occurred over Los Angeles on January 14, 
2020, and reminds the FAA that it is overdue in submitting a 
report on the annual occurrences of fuel dumps in the U.S. over 
the fiscal year 2015-2020 period, including the location of the 
fuel dumps, the amount of fuel dumped, the population density 
of the community over which the fuel dump location occurred, if 
the fuel dump occurred over land, and the FAA's process for 
reviewing fuel dumps.
    Human Intervention Motivation Study (HIMS) and the Flight 
Attendant Drug and Alcohol Program (FADAP).--The Committee 
recognizes the effectiveness of the HIMS and the FADAP in 
mitigating drug and alcohol misuse through a peer 
identification and intervention program. The Committee 
recommends that the FAA continue to prioritize this program and 
urges the FAA to continue this program from within available 
resources.
    Lunar exploration.--The Committee notes the possible value 
of using the payload and lifting capabilities of the Space 
Launch System and encourages the FAA to continue to facilitate 
lunar exploration and development.
    Pilot records database (PRD).--The Committee welcomes the 
final PRD rule as mandated by the Airline Safety and Federal 
Aviation Administration Extension Act of 2010 (P.L. 111-216, 
section 203). The final rule (86 FR 31006) requires air 
carriers and certain other operators to report current and 
historical employment records of pilots and then to evaluate 
these employment records, combined with FAA and other records, 
before an individual may serve as a pilot.
    Workforce diversity and training.--To further the goal of 
workforce diversity, $7,500,000 of the amounts provided for 
staff offices is for the Minority Serving Institutions (MSI) 
internship program, which provides students from Historically 
Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic Serving Institutions, 
students attending a college or university with a high 
percentage of Asian American and Pacific Islanders, Tribal 
Colleges and Universities, and Students with Disabilities the 
opportunity to participate in internship opportunities. Not 
later than 120 days after the date of enactment of this Act, 
the FAA shall submit a report to the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations on the fiscal year 2019 through 
2021 activities of the MSI program, including the number of 
student participants by type of institution, by FAA line of 
business and location, the stipend and non-stipend expenses 
directly and indirectly supporting the program, and a 
description of recruitment and post-program completion 
activities.
    The Committee appreciates the FAA's many efforts to 
increase its own workforce diversity and that of the aviation 
industry at large and looks forward to the briefing required by 
the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 (P.L. 116-260) on 
how these efforts are coordinated and evaluated, which offices 
and executives are involved, and the contributions made by the 
eight officially recognized employee associations. The 
Committee directs the Administrator to ensure the availability 
of funds to support the FAA's diversity and inclusion programs, 
Aviation Workforce Steering Committee, and Women in Aviation 
Advisory Board and to continue engagement with the eight 
officially recognized employee associations. The Committee 
directs the FAA to provide the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations with quarterly staffing data, including hiring 
and separations, by program office for all positions funded by 
this Act.
    Unfinished rulemakings.--The Committee notes that the FAA 
has not met the statutory deadlines to comply with section 336 
of the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018 (P.L. 115-254), which 
requires the FAA to issue an order for ``secondary cockpit 
barrier on each new aircraft''; section 308 of the FAA 
Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 (P.L. 112-95), which 
requires the FAA to issue a rule related to alcohol and 
controlled substances testing of persons that perform safety-
sensitive maintenance functions on commercial air carrier 
aircraft; and section 335(a) of the FAA Reauthorization Act of 
2018 (P.L. 115-254), which requires the FAA to update a rule 
related to flight attendant duty period limitations and rest 
requirements. The Committee directs the FAA to report every 30 
days after the date of enactment of this Act to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations, the House Committee on 
Transportation and Infrastructure, and the Senate Committee on 
Commerce, Science, and Transportation on actions taken and 
planned to promulgate final rules on these matters.
    Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS).--The diversity of the UAS 
industry, the variety of its operational needs, and the wide 
array of safety risks and public concerns, such as noise and 
privacy, with each type of operation necessitates significant 
research and coordination within and outside of the FAA. To 
support the safe and secure integration of UAS into the NAS, 
the recommendation includes not less than $173 million, in 
total, among the FAA's appropriations accounts.
    On June 8, 2021, the FAA approved the creation of an 
aviation rulemaking committee (ARC) to help develop a 
regulatory path for routine beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) 
operations. The ARC currently plans to submit its final report 
to the FAA by November 30, 2021. The Committee directs the FAA 
to brief the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on 
the actions that it will take in response to the ARC's 
recommendations not less than 120 days after the day that the 
FAA receives the ARC's report. The Committee strongly 
encourages the FAA to complete BVLOS rulemakings by December 
2023. In normalizing BVLOS operations, the FAA's rulemakings 
should meet the public's safety expectations, align 
responsibility with industry capabilities, apply existing 
regulatory concepts where appropriate, incorporate lessons 
learned from Partnership for Safety Plan and BEYOND programs, 
and standardize where possible.
    In the meantime, the Committee looks forward to the report 
required by the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 (P.L. 
116-260) on how the FAA will address a number of complex safety 
concerns prior to allowing for BVLOS and directs the FAA to 
ensure the Part 107 waiver process addresses the needs of first 
responders.

Appropriation, fiscal year 2021.......................    $3,015,000,000
Budget request, fiscal year 2022......................     3,410,000,000
Recommended in the bill...............................     3,416,000,000
Bill compared with:
    Appropriation, fiscal year 2021...................      +401,000,000
    Budget request, fiscal year 2022..................        +6,000,000
 

    The Facilities and Equipment (F&E) account is the principal 
means for modernizing and improving air traffic control and 
airway facilities. The appropriation also finances major 
capital investments required by other agency programs, 
experimental research and development facilities, and other 
improvements to enhance the safety and capacity of the airspace 
system.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    Condition of FAA facilities and equipment.--The essential 
tools of air traffic control are FAA-owned facilities and 
equipment. The Committee appreciates the Air Traffic Facilities 
and Engineering Services for keeping these tools in working 
order, but is concerned about the $5.1 billion maintenance 
backlog reported in the budget request. The Committee directs 
the FAA to submit a report to the House and Senate Committees 
on Appropriations not later than 60 days after the date of 
enactment of this Act on the annual maintenance cost, the 
accumulated maintenance backlog and processes used to report, 
prioritize, and budget for maintenance.
    To ensure the safety of airport employees, passengers, and 
the aviation community, the FAA conducts an annual assessment 
of air traffic control towers across the country, weighing not 
only the tower's physical condition, but also the tower's 
effect on airport operations and incidents. The Committee 
supports the FAA's reporting and ranking systems and strongly 
recommends that the FAA also collect and consider the input of 
local airport directors and air traffic controllers since they 
have a first-hand and intimate understanding of airport 
operations and incidents.
    Lighting and landing portfolio.--The Committee supports the 
FAA's effort to replace visual aids systems that utilize 
incandescent bulbs with light emitting diode that reduce energy 
usage and includes not less than $15,000,000 for the 
procurement, installation, and commissioning of precision 
approach path indicators.
    Navigational aids monitoring equipment.--The Committee 
directs the FAA to make funding available to maintain and 
operate integrated control and monitoring systems until such 
time as these systems are replaced.
    Remote telecommunications infrastructure replacement.--To 
address time division multiplexing discontinuance, the 
recommendation includes $17,200,000 under this heading and an 
additional $21,441,000 under the Operations account.
    Remote towers.--Consistent with section 161 of the FAA 
Reauthorization Act of 2018, the Committee encourages the FAA 
to use remote tower technology as a means to enhance safety, 
reduce costs, and expand air traffic control services at rural 
and small community airports. The FAA anticipates completing 
the specifications for the certification of a remote tower by 
the end of calendar year 2021; the FAA is directed to report to 
the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations about any 
delays in meeting this deadline as soon as they become known. 
Issuance of the certification will depend on the strength of 
the application, quality of data presented, and the safety 
benefit provided.

    This appropriation provides funding for long-term research, 
engineering, and development programs to improve the air 
traffic control system and to raise the level of aviation 
safety, as authorized by the Airport and Airway Improvement Act 
and the Federal Aviation Act. The appropriation also finances 
the research, engineering, and development needed to establish 
or modify federal air regulations.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    Aviation climate and noise research.--The Committee 
supports the FAA's research to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 
from aviation and strongly encourages the FAA to coordinate its 
activities with other Federal agencies. The recommendation 
provides $50,000,000 for this endeavor across multiple existing 
research programs that strive to advance, among other things, 
the screening and testing of alternative and sustainable 
aviation fuels, the development of electric and hybrid-electric 
propulsion technology, and the design of engine and airframe 
efficiency to reduce the environmental impact of aviation noise 
and emissions.
    The recommendation provides $35,336,000 for Environment and 
Energy, of which not less than $30,00,000 is for the Center of 
Excellence for Alternative Jet Fuels and Environment (ASCENT) 
to analyze, model, and measure technologies capable of reducing 
noise, improving air quality, increasing energy efficiency, and 
producing sustainable aviation fuels at commercial scale. Of 
these funds, not less than $2,000,000 is for the study of the 
impacts of aviation noise on community annoyance, sleep, 
health, and children's learning. The Committee appreciates that 
the FAA completed its evaluation of alternative airplane noise 
metrics and has awarded a grant to the FAA's Air Transportation 
Center of Excellence for Alternative Jet Fuels and Environment 
in April 2019 in order to study the health impacts of noise 
from overflights in accordance with sections 173 and 189 of the 
FAA Reauthorization Act (P.L. 115-254). Research on the health 
effects of aircraft noise in the United States is lagging. 
Studies on sleep disturbances due to a range of noise exposure 
would be informative for airport and flight operations.
    The recommendation provides $58,476,000 for NextGen-
Environmental Research-Aircraft Technologies and Fuels, of 
which $46,000,000 is to support the Continuous Lower Energy, 
Emissions, and Noise (CLEEN) program to reduce noise and 
emissions at its source--the aircraft engine. The Committee is 
pleased that the CLEEN program is adding reducing community 
noise exposure and particulate matter emissions to its goals.
    Aviation professionals.--The Committee supports increasing 
the strength and number of aviation professionals who are well-
trained and can be relied upon to make air travel safe and 
efficient. To that end, the Committee provides $5,000,000 for 
the aviation maintenance technician development program and 
$5,000,000 for aviation workforce development program in 
accordance with section 625 of the FAA Reauthorization Act 
(P.L. 115-254).
    Crew complements.--The presence of two well-trained, 
qualified pilots in commercial aircraft is another example of 
safety through redundancy. Funding made available in this Act 
to study alternative crew complements for flight decks in 
commercial operations should prioritize the safety effects 
relative to two-person flights. This direction is not intended 
to limit the FAA's research and development activities related 
to unmanned aerial vehicles.
    Emissions reduction plan.--The FAA anticipates revising its 
United States Aviation Greenhouse Gas Emission Reduction Plan 
in support of achieving net-zero emissions, economy-wide by 
2050. The Committee believes such a plan must be comprehensive 
(addressing airframe design, engine technology, operational 
improvements through the NextGen program, and alternative 
fuels), actionable (resulting in specific policies, standards, 
measures, and timetables), and defensible (based on peer-
reviewed quantitative analysis and modeling). The Committee 
directs the FAA to brief the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations on its framework for revising the plan not later 
than 60 days after the date of enactment of this Act.
    Fire research and safety.--The Committee values the FAA's 
work on aircraft fire safety research to prevent accidents 
caused by in-flight fires and to improve survivability in post-
crash fires. Among this research is testing to support the 
development of standards for new fire detection technology and 
suppression agents and fire-safety materials.
    Ice.--Aircraft icing continues to be one of the major 
safety threats to aircraft operations, both in flight and on 
the ground. The Committee provides $6,426,000 for aircraft 
icing research for the FAA to deepen its understanding of the 
effectiveness of ice protection and detection systems on 
aircraft operations under different atmospheric and climate 
conditions and to address the emerging issue of ice and UAS 
operations.
    UAS research.--The Committee supports the safe integration 
of UAS into the national airspace system, including the 
continued development of a low-altitude UAS traffic management 
(UTM) system and low altitude authorization and notification 
capability (LAANC) program. The Committee provides $14,035,000 
for the Center of Excellence for UAS Research.
    Supersonic aircraft.--The Committee encourages the FAA to 
continues its research, rulemaking, and international 
engagement activities related to supersonic aircraft, including 
developing noise and emissions standards. Certification will 
ultimately depend on safety, but should also be informed by 
acoustical modeling, health effects on persons and animals, 
pollutants in the stratosphere, and the interdependency among 
noise, emissions, and fuel.
    Structural safety.--With the current and forecasted use of 
advanced material growing, the Committee supports the FAA's 
research, primarily through the Joint Centers of Excellence for 
Advance Materials and Structures (JAMS), to ensure the safety 
of aircraft made of advanced materials. This research 
contributes to the FAA's ability to provide consistent guidance 
to industry for compliance with certification requirements and 
to evaluate test and analysis procedures used by industry to 
comply with crashworthiness regulations.
    Test environments.--The Committee reminds the FAA that 
interested state aviation departments, universities, UAS 
centers, test complexes and relevant industry stakeholders can 
be valuable partners to demonstrate the operational 
requirements for remote towers, unmanned and manned aerial 
vehicles, urban air mobility flight and electric vertical 
takeoff and landing (eVTOL) vehicles between multiple airports 
in order to measure community acceptance and to identify 
training requirements for the controller, technician and pilot 
workforces to safely operate and integrate these vehicles and 
systems into the NAS. Research should be conducted at a variety 
of places that offer different air traffic operating 
environments, weather conditions, runway configurations, and 
terrains to assess their impact on operations.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    Airport technology research.--The Committee recommendation 
includes not less than $40,961,000 for the FAA's airport 
technology research program to conduct research on topics such 
as concrete and asphalt airport pavement in accordance with 
section 744 of the FAA Reauthorization Act (P.L. 115-254); 
airport marking and lighting; airport rescue and firefighting; 
airport planning and design; wildlife hazard mitigation; and 
visual guidance.
    Airport vehicles.--The Committee directs the FAA to promote 
both the Airport Zero Emissions Vehicle and Infrastructure 
Pilot Program and the Voluntary Airport Low Emissions Program 
as opportunities for airports to meet their obligations under 
the Clean Air Act.
    Foreign object debris (FOD).--FOD is any object located at 
the airport that has the potential to injure airport or air 
carrier personnel and damage aircraft. The FAA requires 
airports with air carrier service to conduct safety 
inspections, which includes FOD detection and removal. FOD 
hazards can be reduced through the implementation of a FOD 
management program (FAA Advisory Circular 150/5210-24). In 
2017, the TRB conducted a survey on airport FOD practices and 
found that FOD management programs are commensurate with the 
complexity of the airport, most airports rely on visual 
searches for FOD detection and mechanical equipment for FOD 
removal, and few airports use some sort of technology or 
equipment for detecting FOD, but that most airports would like 
a better structured FOD management program and to acquire more 
technology for FOD detection (Airport Cooperative Research 
Program Synthesis 26). To that end, the Committee directs the 
FAA Office of Airport Safety and Standards to engage with 
airports about the cost-benefit of FOD detection technology, 
the eligible use of the airport improvement and passenger 
facility charge programs of such technology, and best practices 
for FOD management programs. The FAA should prioritize its 
engagement with airports based on the number, frequency, and 
severity of FOD incidents; operational complexity; and analysis 
of documented FOD sources, amounts, materials, locations, and 
time of day. The Committee further directs the FAA to report to 
the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on the 
implementation of this directive not later than 180 days after 
the date of enactment of this Act.
    Sound insulation.--The Committee is pleased that the FAA 
considers residences that were mitigated prior to 1993 with 
sound insulation as ``unmitigated'' if an airport can verify 
that the residences continue to fall within the latest DNL 65 
dB contour, and have an interior noise level of DNL 45 dB or 
higher. The Committee directs the FAA to continue its outreach 
efforts to airports of this eligible use of AIP funding. For 
residences that do not meet the criteria for the AIP sound 
insulation program, the FAA and airports should seek assistance 
from other Federal agencies and programs, such as HUD's Healthy 
Homes program which makes grants to non-profits and state and 
local governments for identifying and correcting residential 
health and safety hazards. Among these hazards are mold, noise, 
and pests.

    The Committee recommendation includes $400,000,000 in 
discretionary funding, which is available for community 
projects in accordance with the table at the end of this report 
and for additional grants for airport infrastructure.
    Prioritization for additional grants for airport 
infrastructure.-- Section 47115(j)(3)(B) of title 49, United 
States Code, requires that not less than 50 percent of the 
funds made available under this heading shall be for grants at 
nonhub, small hub, reliever, and nonprimary airports. The 
Committee directs the FAA to restrict this set-aside to 50 
percent and to use the remaining funds for grants at medium hub 
and large hub airports.
    In addition, the Committee directs the FAA to provide 
priority consideration for grant applications that complete 
previously awarded discretionary grant projects, and to provide 
priority consideration based on project justification and 
completeness of pre-grant actions.

U.S.C. 44721 until the FAA provides a report to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations that justifies all fees 
related to aeronautical navigation products and explains how 
such fees are consistent with Executive Order No. 13642.
    Section 119 requires the FAA to notify the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations at least 90 days before closing a 
regional operations center or reducing the services provided.
    Section 119A prohibits funds from being used to change 
weight restrictions or prior permission rules at Teterboro 
Airport in New Jersey.
    Section 119B prohibits funds from being used to withhold 
from consideration and approval certain application for

  program level for fiscal year 2022 is $61,882,102,951.

    The Federal-aid highways program is funded by contract 
authority, and liquidating cash appropriations are subsequently 
provided to fund resulting outlays. The Committee sets, through 
the annual appropriations process, an overall limitation on the 
total contract authority that can be obligated under the 
program in a given year. Programs included within the Federal-
aid highways program are financed from the Highway Trust Fund.
    Federal-aid highways and bridges are managed through a 
Federal-state partnership. States and localities maintain 
ownership of and responsibility for the maintenance, repair, 
and new construction of roads. State highway departments have 
the authority to initiate Federal-aid projects, subject to FHWA 
approval of the plans, specifications, and cost estimates. The 
Federal government provides financial support, on a 
reimbursable basis, for construction and repair through 
matching grants.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    Consistent with the amounts authorized in the INVEST in 
America Act, the Committee recommends a total program level of 
$61,882,102,951 for the regular Federal-aid highway program in 
fiscal year 2022. Included within the recommended amount is an 
obligation limitation of $61,143,102,951 and $739,000,000 in 
contract authority that is exempt from the obligation 
limitation.
    Bridges with impacts to protected species under the 
Endangered Species Act.--The Committee directs FHWA to give 
priority consideration to projects that make improvements to 
bridges with significant impacts to species listed under the 
Endangered Species Act to mitigate those impacts. The Committee 
directs the Department to provide a report to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations not later than 270 days 
after enactment of this Act on how FHWA is making its selection 
of bridge improvements to address endangered species.
    Truck size and weight.--In fiscal year 2020, the Committee 
directed the Department to expeditiously develop an 
implementation plan, including projected timelines, for 
conducting the research outlined in the Transportation Research 
Board's Truck Size and Weight Research Plan, which outlines 
numerous projects that are essential to understanding the 
impacts of different truck configurations on driver safety, the 
service life and deterioration rates of bridges, and the 
condition of pavement, as well as potential impacts of such 
changes on the long-term solvency of the Highway Trust Fund. 
The Committee notes that it has not yet received the 
implementation plan required by Congress in fiscal year 2020 
and directs FHWA to brief the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations on its progress to finalize the implementation 
plan within 30 days of enactment of this Act. The results of 
this research should be considered by the Department and 
Congress before any national changes in truck length or weight 
policy are considered.
    Structurally deficient bridges.--The Committee is concerned 
with the large number of structurally deficient bridges in the 
United States. DOT's June 2015 Comprehensive Truck Size and 
Weight Technical Reports Summary found that 4,845 bridges would 
need to be strengthened or replaced to handle additional stress 
if Federal truck weights were increased to 91,000 pounds. The 
Committee is concerned that Federal policies, including the 
consideration of increased Federal truck weights, may result in 
greater funding needs that the Highway Trust Fund will be 
unable to sustain. The Committee directs DOT, as part of this 
implementation plan, to provide consideration of the repair of 
structurally deficient bridges.
    Permeable pavements.--The Committee continues to encourage 
the Secretary to accelerate research, demonstration, and 
deployment of permeable pavements to achieve flood mitigation, 
pollutant reduction, stormwater runoff reduction, environmental 
conservation, and resilience for new road construction and 
retrofit of existing roads. The Committee encourages the 
Secretary to conduct structural evaluations of flood-damaged 
pavements, with emphasis on local roads and highways subject to 
flooding and extended periods of inundation, to understand the 
mechanisms of flood damage and how permeable pavements might be 
used to prevent or reduce damage from future flooding. 
Furthermore, the Secretary is encouraged to work with the 
Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the 
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as both agencies are 
also doing work in the area of permeable pavements and a cross-
agency collaboration may yield more innovation. As such, the 
Committee directs the Department to submit a report within 240 
days of enactment of this Act to the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations detailing current efforts, 
utilization, and research within FHWA and efforts made with 
FEMA and EPA.
    Material neutrality.--The Committee supports the 
Department's work to promote research, development, and 
deployment of building solutions that advance the performance, 
sustainability, reliability, and resiliency of building 
materials. The Committee encourages the Department to support 
material neutral decisions that do not promote or provide 
preference for specific building materials. The Committee 
believes that Federal resources are best utilized when all 
materials are able to compete on their own merits, allowing for 
the best solutions to address our infrastructure challenges.
    Aggregates sustainability.--Aggregates are essential to the 
construction of highways, bridges, tunnels, and all types of 
public works projects and sustainable access to these materials 
is crucial in reducing costs, congestion, and emissions. The 
Department is directed to continue working with U.S. Geological 
Survey and stakeholders to ensure information on the 
availability of aggregates meets the nation's infrastructure 
needs. The Department is directed to provide a report to the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations within 120 days 
of enactment of this Act on how it can best address the 
challenge of the lack of sustainable aggregates resources in 
communities across the nation. The Department is encouraged to 
work with relevant Federal agencies, state, tribal, and local 
transportation and planning agencies to further these efforts.
    Safe systems.--More than 36,000 Americans are killed each 
year in traffic crashes, and road traffic crashes are the 
world's leading cause of death for children and young adults 5-
29 years of age. The Committee remains concerned by the 
staggering number of pedestrian fatalities each year involving 
vehicles and is aware that an increasing number of 
municipalities are developing plans to significantly reduce 
incidences. The Committee supports the critical work that FHWA 
is doing to define, support, and encourage adoption of a safe 
systems approach to reduce and eventually eliminate fatalities 
and serious injuries on our nation's roadways. The Committee 
directs FHWA to continue to work with the Road to Zero 
Coalition and other safety stakeholders to accelerate adoption 
of a safe systems approach by state and local transportation 
agencies. As part of establishing safe systems, cities 
nationwide are developing interagency Vision Zero plans to 
connect engineering, education, and enforcement with the goal 
of ending transportation deaths and serious injuries. The 
Committee directs FHWA to work with state and local 
stakeholders to facilitate the implementation their Vision Zero 
plans and strategies.
    Complete streets.--The Committee is concerned about recent 
increases in cyclist and pedestrian fatalities and encourages 
the adoption of a complete streets design model in which roads 
and streets are designed and operated to enable safe access for 
all users, including but not limited to pedestrians, 
bicyclists, motorists, and transit riders across a broad 
spectrum of ages and abilities. To lay the groundwork for the 
adoption of a complete streets design model, House Report 116-
452 required FHWA to review its current policies, rules, and 
procedures to determine their impact on safety for road users, 
particularly those outside automobiles. The Committee looks 
forward to receiving this report, and appreciates the 
Secretary's commitment to a complete streets approach. The 
Committee continues to direct the Department to disseminate 
best practices for complete streets to state and local highway 
partners.
    Safe routes to schools.--The Committee recognizes the 
important role infrastructure investments, education, and 
enforcement efforts can have in ensuring safe access to 
schools. Investments in sidewalks, bike paths, and alternative 
transportation have proven to increase safety and decrease the 
number of deaths and injuries associated with commutes to 
school. The Committee encourages FHWA to work with the National 
Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Safe Routes 
to School Partnership, and state and local stakeholders to 
facilitate safe student access to schools.
    Advanced Transportation and Congestion Management 
Technologies Deployment (ATCMTD).--Under the FAST Act, ATCMTD 
was able to fund 5 to 10 projects, annually, to make 
competitive grants for the development of model deployment 
sites for large scale installation and operation of advanced 
transportation technologies with the goal of improving safety, 
efficiency, system performance, and return on investment. The 
levels of funding provided under this heading will allow the 
Department to increase research funding for additional 
advancements in such transportation technologies.
    Ohio River crossings.--The Committee encourages the 
Department to work with relevant state departments of 
transportation to complete unfinished sections of certain 
interstate corridors and address capacity constraints at Ohio 
River crossings along these routes to create a continuous 
transportation network from Canada to Mexico that will 
facilitate international trade and spur economic development.
    Alabama highway improvements.--The Committee is aware of 
the importance of challenges faced by the southeast region of 
Alabama, along routes that are critical for regional tourism, 
emergency evacuations, and provide access to the U.S. Army 
Aviation Center of Excellence and Fort Rucker. Due to steep 
grades along the route and an increasing number of passenger 
vehicles and heavily loaded freight carriers, roads such as 
Highway 167 regularly experience delayed traffic flows and an 
increased number of traffic-safety hazards. The Committee 
encourages FHWA to work with state and local stakeholders to 
address safety improvements to alleviate delays and chokepoints 
to ensure a clear route for the transportation of goods and 
services and for major emergency evacuations.
    Virginia highway capacity.--The Committee recognizes the 
challenges faced on certain highways in the Commonwealth of 
Virginia, which are critical to the freight network along the 
east coast. Interstate 81, for example, is a corridor in 
Virginia that is two lanes in each direction, and when one lane 
is blocked there is a significant reduction in capacity. 
Contributing factors to the long crash clearance times include: 
lack of capacity, the rolling terrain, lack of reliable detour 
routes, and the constrained configuration. Travel is 
anticipated to continue to increase on some of these routes, 
with truck traffic growing at a faster pace than passenger 
vehicle traffic. The Committee encourages FHWA to work with 
state and local stakeholders to address surface conditions and 
other improvements to alleviate incident-related delays and 
backups.
    Surface Transportation Block Grant (STBG) program.--The 
STBG program provides flexible funding that may be used to 
improve Federal-aid highways. Interstates are crucial to our 
nation's freight network and incident-related delays lead to 
significant safety concerns and a reduction in capacity on our 
roadways. The Committee encourages the Secretary to assist 
states where truck traffic is growing on interstates at a 
faster pace than passenger vehicle traffic to alleviate 
incident-related delays and backups.
    Critical commerce corridors.--The Committee believes 
critical commerce corridors, an authorized use of funds in the 
nationally significant freight and highway projects program, 
can improve economic efficiency, reduce travel times, and 
promote safe travel on our nation's roads and highways. These 
corridors include existing highways where a barrier physically 
separates lanes dedicated to heavy commercial trucks from lanes 
dedicated to passenger vehicles. The Committee encourages DOT 
to strongly consider applications for the creation of critical 
commerce corridors when awarding grants to individual states.
    Safe routes to school and emergency medical care.--The 
Committee is aware of a commuter-preferred option for residents 
in multiple communities just west of the Delaware Water Gap 
National Recreation Area (DEWA), a U.S. Department of Interior 
park. Such options include Route 2001, which is also a primary 
route for school buses and ambulances. During adverse winter 
weather conditions, Route 2001 specifically becomes the only 
north-south route option in southeastern Pike County, 
Pennsylvania as DEWA closes an arterial route, which runs 
inside its boundaries for just under 30 miles. The Committee 
continues to be concerned regarding Route 2001's ability to 
handle the increased winter traffic and encourages the 
Department to work with state and local stakeholders to address 
surface conditions and other improvements needed to alleviate 
the recurring delays on routes, such as Route 2001, to school 
buses, ambulances, and commuters when traffic is redirected to 
it from arterial routes by DEWA.
    Cap park development.--The Committee notes the growing 
interest in communities across the country in developing cap 
parks (also called a City Deck Park) in which a park is placed 
over a highway. These parks connect neighborhoods that have 
long been divided by highways, reduce traffic congestion, 
improve air quality, and bring green space to communities. 
House Report 116-452 directed the Department to analyze the 
benefits of cap parks and to report back to the Committee 
within one year of enactment on its findings. The Committee 
looks forward to receiving the report.
    Capping highways.--The Committee acknowledges President 
Biden's call to redress historic inequities and build the 
future of transportation infrastructure within the American 
Jobs Plan. This plan seeks to right the wrongs previous 
infrastructure projects have imposed on urban communities. One 
solution to this issue is to cap major highways to reduce the 
air pollutants in the surrounding neighborhoods. As such, the 
Committee directs GAO, in consultation with the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations, within one year of 
enactment of this Act, to assess the extent to which states and 
local governments have undertaken similar projects in recent 
years; the efforts of FHWA to provide technical assistance or 
other support for such projects; and stakeholder perspectives 
on the potential costs and benefits of capping major highways. 
This study should consider highways that intersect 
neighborhoods with racially concentrated poverty and 
neighborhoods with high asthmas hospitalization rates, as well 
as examine the health benefits to the surrounding neighborhoods 
of capping a highway with greenspace and installing filtrations 
systems within the new tunnels.
    Resiliency for coastal roads and highways.--Coastal roads 
and highways, which are the lifelines of many communities, are 
facing major challenges from the effects of climate change, 
particularly sea level rise and coastal erosion. As DOT makes 
investments in coastal areas, the Committee continues to urge 
the Department to emphasize resiliency and support for roads 
that are currently in crisis situations, ensuring that the most 
vulnerable roads are being modernized utilizing best practices, 
and that planning for future resilient roads take these 
realities into account.
    Resilient building materials.--The Committee encourages the 
Department to promote the use of resilient building materials 
that will reduce carbon emissions and nonpoint source 
pollution, as appropriate, in all Federally funded highway 
projects.
    New interstate designations.--The Committee recognizes the 
benefits that communities achieve when existing roads are 
designated as interstates or future interstates, including 
those that will facilitate the safe evacuation of coastal 
areas. The Committee encourages FHWA to work with the 
appropriate state departments of transportation to facilitate 
the development of these highways. The Department is directed 
to report to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations 
on these efforts within 60 days of enactment of this Act.
    Innovative technologies.--The Committee urges FHWA to 
consider the feasibility of utilizing or deploying innovative 
technologies, including moveable barriers, that provide 
congestion relief, improve air quality, and decrease fuel 
consumption. Innovative technologies can also offer quick 
alternatives to costly road construction, result in safer 
roadways, and help eliminate crossover fatalities. The 
Committee encourages FHWA to consider such technologies as part 
of any project for which the Federal government provides 
grants.
    Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD).--The 
Committee recognizes the importance that the MUTCD plays in 
creating a uniform and safe experience for drivers nationwide. 
It defines the standards used by road managers nationwide to 
install and maintain traffic control devices on all public 
streets, highways, bikeways, and private roads open to public 
travel. It is updated periodically to accommodate the nation's 
changing transportation needs and to address new safety 
technologies, traffic control tools, and traffic management 
techniques. The Committee understands FHWA is currently 
undergoing rulemaking on MUTCD and encourages FHWA to implement 
the final rule expeditiously.
    Local empowerment for accelerating projects.--The Committee 
is aware that counties play an important role in our nation's 
transportation network, owning a large share of the nation's 
road miles. Section 1420 of the FAST Act authorized the Local 
Empowerment for Accelerating Projects Pilot Program, which 
allowed, on an experimental basis, for the direct delivery of 
Federal-aid funding to up to five Local Public Agencies. The 
Committee is interested in the outcomes of the pilot program 
and directs the Department to provide a report to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations no later than 180 days 
after enactment of this Act.
    Redressing historic inequities in the nation's interstate 
highway system.--The construction of the nation's interstate 
highway system was shaped by systemic racism. There are 
countless examples of interstate highways that were directly 
and purposefully routed through established minority 
communities, causing community upheaval, loss of homes and 
businesses, and economic hardship. The Committee encourages the 
Department to address the systemic destruction of communities 
by prioritizing projects that reconnect neighborhoods cut off 
by historic investments in the interstate highway system and to 
ensure new projects increase opportunity, advance racial equity 
and environmental justice, and promote affordable access.
    Bike lanes for equitable, sustainable transportation.--The 
addition of high quality bike infrastructure, including trails 
and protected bike lanes, is proven to reduce traffic 
fatalities and open up opportunities for healthy and zero-
carbon transportation. High quality bike infrastructure opens 
up access for low-income communities and encourages cycling 
among novice cyclists and families who may have a lower 
tolerance for risk. The Committee encourages FHWA to work with 
state and local agencies to support greater implementation of 
bike lanes throughout the nation.
    Pedestrian safety.--The Committee is aware of cities that 
might have the capacity to directly assist with implementation 
of safety projects and directs FHWA to provide a report to the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations within 270 days 
of enactment of this Act on how the highway safety improvement 
program can better assist cities in directing Federal funding 
or providing Federal assistance to pedestrian safety projects.
    Infrastructure monitoring demonstration project.--The 
Committee is interested in new technology advancements to 
monitor and assess the lifespan, safety, and durability of 
infrastructure investments, and directs FHWA to brief the House 
and Senate Committees on Appropriations within 180 days of 
enactment of this Act on its research in this area.
    Communities impacted by persistent flooding.--The Committee 
directs DOT, through its Federal Lands Access Program, to 
provide consideration for communities that are impacted by 
persistent flooding.
    Highway-rail grade crossing safety.--The Committee notes 
that highway-rail grade crossing collisions are the second 
leading cause of all rail-related fatalities in the United 
States. Consistent with the authorized level, the Committee 
provides $245,000,000 for railway-highway crossing improvements 
under section 130(e) of title 23, United States Code for the 
elimination of hazards at railway-highway crossings.

    Nationally significant federal lands and tribal projects 
program.--The Committee directs that when making grant awards 
under this heading, FHWA should prioritize roadways that in the 
previous two fiscal years have been closed or had speed 
reductions due to unsafe travel conditions as a result of the 
roadway's infrastructure condition and maintenance.
    Tribal transportation program (TTP).--The Committee 
recognizes that providing safe and adequate transportation over 
the more than 160,000 miles of roads and trails within Indian 
reservations, Indian lands, and Alaska Native Village 
communities is crucial for the safety and welfare of tribal and 
surrounding non-tribal communities. A prime objective of the 
TTP is to contribute to the economic development, self-
determination, and employment of Indians and Native Americans. 
As a result, the Committee provides an additional $20,000,000 
for tribal transportation programs. This funding should be 
available for transportation needs to address the existence of 
safety hazards with documented fatality and injury accidents, 
to address challenges caused by geographic isolation, or to 
plan for all weather access for emergencies, employment, 
commerce, health, safety, educational resources, or housing 
with an emphasis on key roads vital to gain access to tribal 
reservations and may serve adjacent communities.
    Advanced digital construction management systems.--Advanced 
Digital Construction Management Systems are defined as 
commercially proven digital technologies and processes for 
management of construction and engineering activities, 
including systems for infrastructure planning and coordination, 
construction, maintenance, modernization and management, asset 
management systems for machines, site equipment, and personnel. 
Project delivery systems for project management are also 
included. The Committee intends for software, hardware, 
services, and employee training on the use and management of 
Advanced Digital Construction Management System to be eligible 
expenses under this heading. Further, the Committee directs the 
Secretary to release a Notice of Funding Opportunity for 
current and previous years funding within 90 days of the 
enactment of this Act.
    Tribal fatalities study.--The Committee provides $2,000,000 
for research that leads to decreases in highway and pedestrian 
fatalities among tribal populations. This research should build 
on reports mandated in the FAST Act and should be competitively 
awarded to state governments, academic institutions, or non-
profits with both existing partnerships among tribal 
governments and which have traffic safety and transportation 
research expertise. Research should focus on priority areas 
identified in FHWA's 2018 report ``Options for Improving 
Transportation Safety in Tribal Areas''. Other activities 
should include, but are not limited to, the creation of a 
national survey that engages Tribal nations in evaluating the 
awareness and effectiveness of available transportation safety 
resources; research that enhances the transportation decision-
making process; research that explores and develops crash 
mitigation strategies and countermeasures in priority topic 
areas; and the identification of best practices.
    Insterstate-35 innovative corridor project.--The Committee 
notes the importance of Interstate 35, a critical north-south 
corridor for commerce that is crucial for an efficient, 
resilient, and secure supply chain. As such, the Committee 
provides $7,500,000 and directs FHWA to conduct comprehensive 
evaluations and analysis of highway corridors from ports of 
entry to inland ports.
    Salmon recovery.--The Committee provides $5,000,000 to 
establish a cooperative series of agreements with universities, 
Federal agencies, the National Academy of Sciences, 
transportation agencies and/or nonprofit organizations with 
demonstrated capacity and expertise to conduct aligned 
investigations and studies to advance the biologic, hydraulic, 
geomorphologic, cultural, and other scientific engineering to 
help mitigate and improve the impacts of culverts, roads, and 
bridges on threatened or endangered salmon populations. The 
aligned outcomes will assist with identifying, prioritizing for 
future funding, and providing scientific and engineering 
approaches applicable to highway infrastructure improvement 
projects that will reduce these impacts and enhance recovery 
efforts.

       ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISIONS--FEDERAL HIGHWAY ADMINISTRATION

    Section 120 distributes obligation authority among Federal-
aid highway programs.
    Section 121 credits funds received by the Bureau of 
Transportation Statistics to the Federal-aid highways account.
    Section 122 provides requirements for any waiver of the Buy 
America Act.
    Section 123 requires 60-day notification to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations of any grants as authorized

regulations in effect before April 17, 2018.

              Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration

    The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) was 
established within the Department of Transportation (DOT) by 
Congress through the Motor Carrier Safety Improvement Act of 
1999. FMCSA's mission is to promote safe commercial motor 
vehicle operations and to reduce truck and bus crashes. FMCSA 
works with Federal, state, and local entities, the motor 
carrier industry, highway safety organizations, and the public 
to further its mission.
    FMCSA resources are used to prevent and mitigate commercial 
vehicle accidents through regulation, enforcement, stakeholder 
training, technological innovation, and improved information 
systems. FMCSA also is responsible for enforcing Federal motor 
carrier safety and hazardous materials regulations for all 
commercial vehicles entering the United States along its 
southern and northern borders.

    The limitation on obligations establishes FMCSA's spending 
level for salaries, operating expenses, and research to support 
motor carrier safety program activities and to maintain the 
agency's administrative infrastructure. This funding supports 
nationwide motor carrier safety and consumer enforcement 
efforts, including the compliance, safety, and accountability 
program, regulation and enforcement of freight transport, and 
Federal safety enforcement at the U.S. borders. These resources 
also fund regulatory development and implementation, 
information management, research and technology, safety 
education and outreach, and the safety and consumer telephone 
hotline.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    Consistent with the amounts authorized in the INVEST in 
America Act, the Committee recommends $379,500,000 for the 
Operations and Programs account. The obligation limitation is 
for one fiscal year, except $78,073,000 which is available 
until September 30, 2024. Of the amounts available until 
September 30, 2024, not less than $65,000,000 is for 
information management and $13,073,000 is for the research and 
technology program.
    Transparency and responsiveness to Congress.--The Committee 
is concerned that it has not been notified of key developments 
within FMCSA, including the issuance of reports, one of which 
was directed by the Committee. The Committee expects FMCSA to 
be responsive and transparent and directs the agency to notify 
staff no later than one business day in advance of publishing 
notices in the Federal Register or when studies requested by 
the Committee are published.
    Hours of service (HOS).--The Committee remains concerned 
about the safety and labor ramifications of the HOS rule that 
FMCSA finalized on September 29, 2020. The final rule will 
extend driving time and distance while also reducing the amount 
of time a driver takes for rest. The Consolidated 
Appropriations Act, 2021 (Public Law 116-260) directed that 
FMCSA annually analyze such regulations by comparing specified 
safety data to data collected prior to the implementation of 
the final HOS rule and to report the results in the fiscal year 
budget request. The fiscal year 2022 request did not include 
such analysis. The Committee repeats such direction for fiscal 
year 2022 and directs FMCSA to make the information publicly 
available and to post the analysis on the agency's website 
concurrently with the posting of the fiscal year budget request 
for fiscal year 2023.
    Large truck crash causation study.--The Committee remains 
alarmed by truck safety trends. In 2019, injuries to people 
involved in large truck crashes increased more than 5 percent 
and the number of deaths has increased by 36 percent since 
2010. The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (Public Law 
116-260) included $30,000,000 for a study on the causes of 
large truck crashes because injuries to occupants of large 
trucks, occupants of other vehicles, and nonoccupants like 
pedestrians and cyclists continue to increase. Within 90 days 
of enactment of this Act, the Committee directs FMCSA to brief 
the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on the 
progress of the study.
    Information technology.--Information technology problems at 
FMCSA continue to have negative effects on the safety and 
efficiency of the trucking industry nationwide. The legacy of 
layered, antiquated systems remains a stumbling block for the 
agency. As a result, the Committee provides $65,000,000 for 
information management and directs FMCSA to provide quarterly 
briefings to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations 
on the agency's progress towards a streamlined and efficient 
information management system.
    National registry of certified medical examiners.--The DOT 
Office of the Inspector General (OIG) found that FMCSA is not 
meeting its oversight requirements for the National Registry of 
Certified Medical Examiners (report number ST2021013). Outdated 
and missing data stymie the agency's ability to monitor the 
industry. In addition, FMCSA has not implemented requirements 
for monitoring, and the roll out of the electronic registry has 
been plagued by delays. The OIG reports ``Without these 
oversight reviews, FMCSA may be missing fraud indicators or 
other risks that may require mitigation and has less assurance 
that drivers are physically qualified to safely operate a 
commercial vehicle.'' In December 2020, the agency proposed a 
timeline for addressing the OIG's concerns. Within 90 days of 
enactment of this Act, FMCSA is directed to brief the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriation on the agency's plan to 
comply with the OIG's recommendations.
    Motor carrier safety fitness determination (SFD) 
rulemaking.--Within 90 days of enactment of this Act, the 
Committee directs the Secretary to initiate a rulemaking to 
update and revise regulations issued pursuant to subsection (b) 
of section 31144 of title 49, United States Code. The Committee 
directs that such a rulemaking shall include procedures for the 
Secretary to determine if a motor carrier is not fit to operate 
a commercial motor vehicle in or affecting interstate commerce 
in accordance with such section.
    Commercial zone boundaries.--FMCSA currently designates the 
South Texas counties of Cameron, Hidalgo, Starr, and Willacy as 
part of a commercial zone at the border between the United 
States and Mexico. As a result, these counties are exempt from 
certain regulations under 49 U.S.C. 13506(b)(1). The Committee 
notes that Zapata county is adjacent to Starr County and the 
Mexican border. The Committee encourages FMCSA to analyze 
expanding the commercial zone boundaries defined under 49 CFR 
Sec.  372.237.

    The limitation on obligations controls FMCSA's spending 
level for motor carrier safety grants. These grants are used to 
support compliance reviews in the states, identify and 
apprehend traffic violators, conduct roadside inspections, and 
conduct safety audits of new entrant carriers. Additionally, 
grants are provided to states for improvement of state 
commercial driver's license oversight activities.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    Consistent with the amounts authorized in the INVEST in 
America Act, the Committee recommends $506,200,000 in

 ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISIONS--FEDERAL MOTOR CARRIER SAFETY ADMINISTRATION

    Section 130 requires FMCSA to send notice of 49 CFR section 
385.308 violations by certified mail, registered mail, or 
another manner of delivery, which records the receipt of the 
notice by the persons responsible for the violations.
    Section 131 requires FMCSA to update annual inspection 
regulations to require that rear underride guards be inspected 
annually.
    Section 132 prohibits funds from being used to enforce the 
requirements of section 31137 of title 49, or any regulation 
pursuant to such section, with respect to carriers transporting 
livestock or insects.

             National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

    The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) 
was established in March 1970 to administer motor vehicle and 
highway safety programs. It was the successor agency to the 
National Highway Safety Bureau, which was housed in the Federal 
Highway Administration.
    NHTSA's mission is to save lives, prevent injuries, and 
reduce economic costs due to road traffic crashes through 
education, research, safety standards, and enforcement 
activity. To accomplish these goals, NHTSA establishes and 
enforces safety performance standards for motor vehicles and 
motor vehicle equipment, investigates safety defects in motor 
vehicles, and conducts research on driver behavior and traffic 
safety.
    NHTSA provides grants and technical assistance to state and 
local governments to enable them to conduct effective local 
highway safety programs. Together with state and local 
partners, NHTSA works to reduce the threat of drunk, impaired, 
and distracted drivers, and to promote policies and devices 
with demonstrated safety benefits including helmets, child 
safety seats, airbags, and graduated driver's licenses.
    NHTSA establishes and ensures compliance with fuel economy 
standards, investigates odometer fraud, establishes and 
enforces vehicle anti-theft regulations, and provides consumer 
information on a variety of motor vehicle safety topics.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Truck underrides.--The Committee highlights that DOT has 
been researching truck underrides for more than 50 years and 
that NHTSA's proposed rulemaking to update truck rear impact 
guard requirements in December 2015 cited 362 annual fatalities 
associated with light vehicle crashes into the rear of trucks. 
The Committee directs NHTSA to prioritize working with relevant 
experts and stakeholders, including researchers, engineers, 
safety advocates, and the trucking industry, to facilitate the 
deployment and adoption of rear and side underride protection 
devices. The Committee encourages DOT to form an advisory 
committee on truck underrides to further this work. The 
Committee reiterates direction from the past several years that 
NHTSA implement GAO recommendations on truck underrides and to 
complete rulemaking to improve rear guards in order to 
ultimately meet the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety 
standards for Toughguard awards. The Committee repeats such 
direction and directs NHTSA to brief the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations quarterly on its progress to meet 
such requirements. In addition, the Committee directs NHTSA to 
substantively respond to the grant of petition for rulemaking 
on Rear Impact Guards, Rear Impact Protection published in the 
Federal Registrar on July 10, 2014.
    Automatic emergency braking (AEB).--The Committee notes 
that the safety benefits of AEBs on large trucks are well 
documented and mandating such technology would significantly 
reduce the more than 5,000 annual fatalities from large truck 
crashes. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has found 
that AEBs can reduce front-to-rear crashes with injuries by 56 
percent. The costs to generating these benefits are not large. 
A September 2018 study by NHTSA found that the incremental cost 
to a truck driver of automatic emergency brakes would be less 
than $350. The Committee appreciates that the Spring 2021 
regulatory agenda included the AEB rulemaking, and the 
Committee directs that NHTSA move with all deliberate speed in 
finalizing this rule.
    Test dummies.--The Committee understands that developing, 
testing, and fully vetting an advanced anthropomorphic test 
dummy is complicated and time consuming. However, NHTSA has 
been working on such research and development for almost 15 
years. The Committee is anxiously awaiting the adoption of the 
Test Device for Human Occupant Restraint (THOR) 50th percentile 
test dummy, as well as the eventual adoption of the THOR 5th 
percentile female and the Worldwide Harmonized Side Impact 
Dummy (WorldSID) side impact test dummies. In order to 
adequately address the gender inequities in crash testing data, 
the updates must ensure equitable frontal crash tests for both 
male and female drivers. Within eighteen months of enactment of 
this Act, the Committee directs NHTSA to issue the long overdue 
New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) proposed rule that adopts the 
most technologically advanced safety equipment, including the 
most advanced anthropomorphic test dummies. Subsequently, the 
Committee directs NHTSA to report on, and make public, an 
analysis addressing the findings on and progress to adopt the 
THOR 50th and THOR 5th percentile test dummies, including an 
accounting of all relative studies, as well as any efforts 
NHTSA has made to address gender disparities in crash testing 
and accident effects.
    Crashworthiness research.--The Committee recognizes the 
importance that lightweight plastics and polymer composites 
play to improve automotive safety, meet consumer demand for 
innovative and autonomous vehicles, increase fuel efficiency, 
and support new highly skilled manufacturing jobs. Effective 
lightweight materials can also have the benefit of increasing 
fuel-economy. The Committee is pleased that NHTSA continues to 
work closely with the Department of Energy on lessons learned 
from lightweight materials research. The Committee directs 
NHTSA to continue to include the consideration of lightweight 
materials as standards, test procedures, and associated 
countermeasures are developed as part of the occupant 
protections program. Safety standards established by NHTSA 
should not present a barrier to the integration or adoption of 
new materials, many of which have lightweight components.
    Fuel-economy standards.--According to the EPA, GHG 
emissions from transportation account for about 30 percent of 
total greenhouse gas emissions in the United States, making it 
the largest contributor of GHG emissions in the country. The 
Committee applauds the finding by NHTSA that California's 
authority to regulate GHG emissions is not preempted by the 
Federal government's authority to set fuel economy standards. 
The Committee encourages NHTSA, in conjunction with EPA, to set 
a higher federal fuel economy standard as a part of a shift 
towards electrification of the motor vehicle fleet. As part of 
this effort, the Committee encourages NHTSA to consider the 
availability of alternative fuel vehicles when establishing new 
fuel economy standards.
    Autonomous vehicle (AV) testing.--The Committee remains 
concerned that changes in driving technology will bring 
significant changes to the roadways from both cars and large 
trucks, and that the nation remains unprepared for such 
changes. Testing how AVs react to various environmental and 
weather conditions is a critical part of validating AV safety. 
The Committee is concerned that the United States does not have 
research and test facilities which replicate a wide variety of 
challenging weather conditions like rain, fog, and low sun 
angles. The Committee encourages NHTSA to use previously 
designated AV proving grounds or to partner with an existing 
non-profit automotive vehicle test and research facility to 
facilitate the development and deployment of AV technology that 
can operate in all weather conditions. Such partnerships should 
include sensor environmental testing where the vehicle moves 
through the driven environment. In addition, the Committee 
reiterates its direction from fiscal year 2021 that NHTSA 
develop a research program to better understand the kinetics 
and injury outcomes associated with alternatively positioned 
vehicle occupants. This research program may involve partnering 
with one or more academic institutions for an experimental 
validation study.
    Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).--The Committee 
recognizes the safety benefits of ADAS but is concerned that 
there are not minimum performance standards for the technology, 
resulting in consumer confusion about the benefits and 
constraints of the technology. While the Committee supports 
NHTSA's recent efforts to educate consumers about ADAS 
technologies and directs NHTSA to continue such outreach, the 
Committee further directs NHTSA to develop minimum performance 
standards for ADAS and AV technologies including, but not 
limited to, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, 
lane departure warnings, and traffic signal recognition. The 
Committee fully supports the recommendation by the NTSB that 
NHTSA collect standardized crash data from AV and certain ADAS 
systems and applauds NHTSA's announcement on June 29, 2021 that 
they will begin requiring manufacturers and operators to report 
such data. A better understanding of these systems by NHTSA is 
crucial for the evaluation of their safety.
    Emergency responders and electric batteries.--The Committee 
is worried about the danger to emergency responders who respond 
to incidents involving electric vehicles. Crash damage can 
result in fires because of the high energy stored in propulsion 
battery packs. As a result, the battery can reignite. The 
Committee supports the NTSB's recommendations that NHTSA 
convene a coalition of stakeholders to continue research on 
ways to mitigate or deenergize the stranded energy in high-
voltage lithium-ion batteries and to reduce the hazards 
associated with thermal runaway resulting from high-speed, 
high-severity crashes.
    Trailer safety.--The Committee is supportive of ongoing 
national efforts aimed at increasing awareness of light and 
medium duty safety for trailer towing and encourages NHTSA, in 
conjunction with national stakeholder groups, to conduct 
outreach to the driving public through advertising so consumers 
understand how to safely use trailers and properly utilize 
safety features implemented by vehicle manufacturers.
    Overdue rulemakings.--The Committee remains concerned about 
the slow progress by NHTSA on completing rulemakings mandated 
by Congress in the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st 
Century Act (MAP-21) (P.L. 112-141) (MAP-21) and the FAST Act. 
The Committee anticipates receiving the GAO report listing all 
congressionally mandated rulemakings related to 49 USC Chapter 
301 which DOT and NHTSA have failed to address consistent with 
the required deadlines. That report will also include the 
reasons for such delays and potential actions to reduce delay 
in mandated rulemaking activities, including the prioritization 
of congressionally mandated rules in relation to general 
rulemaking activities.

    This limitation on obligations controls NHTSA's spending 
for highway safety research and development programs. Many of 
these programs are conducted in partnership with state and 
local governments, the private sector, universities, research 
units, and various safety associations and organizations. 
Programs funded by this account include research, 
demonstrations, and technical assistance to state and local 
governments around behavioral aspects of driver, occupant, and 
pedestrian behavior. This account also funds NHTSA's National 
Center for Statistics and Analysis which collects and analyzes 
crash data and provides technical assistance to support state 
highway safety activities.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    For behavioral safety research funded by the operations and 
research account, the Committee recommends $180,612,000 in 
liquidating cash and obligation limitation. Obligation 
limitation is available for one year, except for $20,000,000 
which is available until September 30, 2023 and up to 
$7,000,000 which is available until expended. The total 
includes $170,612,000 consistent with the INVEST in America Act 
and $10,000,000 in funds from prior years.
    Highway fatalities.--Despite dramatic decreases in the 
number of cars on the road, automobile fatalities and injuries 
spiked in 2020. Fatalities per vehicle mile traveled increased 
by 24 percent over the previous 12-month period, the largest 
year-over-year increase since 1924, imposing a cost of more 
than $800 billion on society. The Committee recognizes the need 
for more robust data collection and analysis related to 
vehicle, highway, and behavioral safety to develop effective 
countermeasures to reduce the number of and severity of vehicle 
crashes involving intersections, pedestrians, and a vehicle 
leaving the lane or roadway. Immediate steps must be taken to 
focus resources on a national campaign to save lives on the 
roadways. The Committee directs NHTSA to assert its leadership 
by developing and implementing a national campaign, working 
with other Federal agencies, the states, law enforcement, the 
public health community, industry, and others who can 
contribute to the goal of saving lives. Funding provided under 
this heading is provided for robust research on causal factors 
of auto crashes such as distracted driving, road conditions, 
and congestion. In fiscal year 2021, the Committee required a 
report on the agency's plans and progress on this campaign, due 
December 23, 2021. The Committee expects that the report will 
be on time, will include specific goals, and any impediments to 
achieving those goals.
    Pedestrian fatalities.--The Committee remains alarmed at 
the increased number of pedestrian fatalities, that have soared 
almost 50 percent to more than 7,000 fatalities over the last 
10 years, roughly one-sixth of all traffic deaths in the United 
States. Reducing these fatalities and injuries will take a 
concerted effort that includes enforcement of existing laws, 
changes in street design and engineering, and education of 
drivers and pedestrians. The Committee directs NHTSA to 
continue to work with FHWA and state and local stakeholders to 
conduct education and enforcement efforts in cities nationwide 
and to convene stakeholders to develop and publicize innovative 
solutions to reduce pedestrian fatalities. In addition, the 
Committee directs NHTSA to update data collection methodologies 
to evaluate pedestrian injuries and fatalities.
    Road to zero coalition.--The Committee believes that 
conquering persistent problems with speed, seat belt use, 
distraction, and substance-impaired driving requires a 
collaborative effort. The Road to Zero coalition has mobilized 
more than 1,700 organizations supporting a goal to reduce 
fatalities on the roads and reach a goal of zero fatalities by 
2050. Conquering the traffic safety question requires a 
collective effort around the Road to Zero's three pillars: 
doubling down on proven countermeasures, accelerating the 
adoption of life-saving technology, and prioritizing a safe 
system approach. In order to reduce motor vehicle fatalities, 
the Road to Zero coalition has awarded 25 safe system 
innovation grants totaling $3,500,000 over three years to 
qualifying organizations that could clearly explain how their 
program would reduce motor vehicle fatalities. The Committee 
encourages DOT to remain engaged and involved with the Road to 
Zero coalition as it develops data-driven actions to meet the 
goal of reducing motor vehicle fatalities to zero. Within 120 
days of enactment of this Act, the Committee directs NHTSA to 
develop and implement an agreement to provide safe system 
innovation grant funding for such activities at a level 
commensurate with previous levels of support.
    Drunk and impaired driving detection.--Drunk driving is the 
number one cause of traffic fatalities, costing the United 
States $194 billion annually and accounting for roughly one-
quarter to one-third of motor vehicle fatalities each year. To 
address the scourge of drunk driving, the Committee has 
continually supported the Driver Alcohol Detection System for 
Safety (DADSS) research under this heading. The DADSS system 
specifically aims to detect the presence of a certain level of 
alcohol in a driver. NHSTA and staff of the DADSS program 
estimate they will complete their work by the end of fiscal 
year 2025. The Committee expects NHTSA will continue to support 
the program with funds made available under this heading.
    The Committee is also encouraged by the development of 
camera-based driver monitoring systems. These developing, 
probability-based systems aim to detect a variety of behaviors 
that are not conducive to safe driving such as distraction, 
drowsiness, or impairment. The Committee believes that these 
technologies, in combination with other technological 
innovations, have the ability to save lives and reduce impaired 
driving.
    In fiscal year 2021, the Committee directed NHTSA to 
contract with the Volpe National Transportation Systems Center 
to update the 2007 Review of Technology to Prevent Alcohol-
Impaired Crashes and looks forward to receiving that report. 
The Committee directs NHTSA to emphasize research on driver 
monitoring and to identify promising technologies that will 
reduce or eliminate impaired and distracted driving.
    Drug-impaired driving.--The Committee remains concerned 
with the growing problem of people driving under the influence 
of one or multiple substances, including marijuana and opioids. 
The Committee encourages NHTSA to continue funding training 
efforts to ensure stakeholders can identify drug-impaired 
driving and enforce the law. Funding under this heading is 
provided to continue research with the goal of developing a 
standardized field sobriety test (SFST) to detect marijuana 
impairment.
    The Committee directs NHTSA to work with the Department of 
Justice, the Department of Health and Human Service, and the 
Department of Commerce to ensure that state highway safety 
offices and state law enforcement have the most up-to-date 
information from the Federal government on detecting impaired 
driving. In order to increase the safety of the transportation 
network by reducing drug-impaired driving, the Committee 
directs NHTSA to work with states to determine their toxicology 
testing and funding needs and to make states aware that 
assistance for state toxicology labs are eligible expenses 
under section 402 and 405 formula grant funds.
    Child-car seat testing.--In 2014, NHTSA issued a proposed 
rulemaking that would have required all car seats designed for 
children up to 40 pounds to be tested for side-impact 
collisions. The Committee reiterates its direction that, by 
December 31, 2021, NHTSA issue the long overdue rule to test 
car seats for effectiveness in side-impact car crashes and to 
update rules for frontal impacts.
    Child hyperthermia.--The Committee remains deeply concerned 
about the ongoing crisis involving children dying of 
hyperthermia after being left alone in motor vehicles. From 
2018 through 2020, more than 100 children died in this tragic 
manner. NHTSA must pursue a two-pronged strategy of public 
education and technology solutions. Continued public education 
activities should include aggressive media and community 
outreach. The auto industry must continue to develop effective 
technological solutions to swiftly install such systems that 
detect the presence of a child in a motor vehicle and alert 
individuals inside and outside the vehicle. Of the amounts 
provided under this heading, the Committee directs that no less 
than $3,000,000 shall be available primarily to advance the 
installation of effective detection and technological solutions 
and, secondarily, to raise the awareness of parents and 
caregivers by developing and placing assets for campaigns on 
social media, radio, and other media.
    Virtual car seat checks.--For the past 30 years, child 
passenger safety technicians have assisted parents one-on-one 
in ensuring that car seats were properly installed. As a result 
of COVID-19, one-on-one in-person instruction became extremely 
limited, so technicians began to conduct virtual car seat 
checks as an alternative. The Committee directs NHTSA to work 
with relevant stakeholders, including state highway safety 
offices, to promote virtual car seat safety checks.
    Children with disabilities.--The Committee is aware that 
almost 20 percent of children in the United States have a 
physical, emotional, or intellectual disability. Transportation 
for these children can be a challenge and the physical eco-
system of our transportation networks can be difficult for such 
children to navigate. The Committee directs NHTSA to update the 
training curriculum Safe Travel for All Children to address the 
training needs of the professionals responsible for the safe 
transport of children with disabilities.
    Stroke victim transportation protocol.--Stroke is a leading 
cause of death and long-term disability among adults in the 
United States, but faster diagnosis and treatment greatly 
increase chances of survival. The Committee encourages NHTSA 
and its Office of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) to continue 
working with stakeholders in the EMS community to develop and 
disseminate information on assessment, treatment, and 
transport-destination protocols to ensure that stroke patients 
are transported to the most appropriate hospital for treatment. 
In developing such protocols, stakeholders shall consider the 
capability of an emergency receiving facility to improve 
outcomes for patients suspected of having an emergent large 
vessel occlusion.
    EMS/911.--The Committee believes that providing high-
quality telephone CPR instructions can save lives from cardiac 
arrest and should be a standard of care for every 9-1-1 
telecommunicator that provides dispatch instructions for 
medical emergencies in the United States. Through the EMS, the 
Committee encourages NHTSA to develop training in 
cardiopulmonary resuscitation to disseminate to state and local 
emergency dispatchers. Such training should include evidence-
based protocols, continuing education, and performance 
measures.
    Cooperative research and evaluation program.--The Committee 
recognizes the important role that the Behavioral Traffic 
Safety Cooperative Research program plays in ensuring highway 
safety. The Committee supports the INVEST in America Act's 
inclusion of funding for this program out of amounts made 
available under section 402 of title 23, United States Code.
    Research on older drivers.--The Committee remains concerned 
about the safety of older drivers and sees promise in the 
development of tools that can prolong safe and independent 
mobility. The Committee supports widespread testing of tools 
such as app-based software that provides in-vehicle assistance 
to elderly drivers. Of the amounts made available under this 
heading, no more than $7,000,000, to remain available until 
expended, shall be available for research with a university or 
multi-university consortia to test software in order to develop 
a framework that facilitates mobility for elderly drivers.
    Highway-rail grade crossing safety.--Railroad crossings are 
the second largest source of rail-related fatalities annually 
in the United States. While incidences at railroad crossings 
have been decreasing over the last 30 years due to safety 
improvements, the FRA estimates that there were still almost 
2,000 collisions, over 600 injuries, and over 200 fatalities. 
To address these needless deaths and injuries, the Committee 
includes $10,000,000 for NHTSA, in collaboration with FRA, to 
continue a high-visibility enforcement campaign on the dangers 
of rail-grade crossings.

    This limitation controls NHTSA's spending on grants to 
states authorized under the FAST Act. The grant programs 
include: highway safety programs, the national priority safety 
program, and the high visibility enforcement program. These 
grants provide flexible funding to states that develop a 
highway safety plan to address state highway safety issues. 
This account also includes incentive grants to states that meet 
specific statutory criteria in areas such as impaired and 
distracted driving, occupant protection, motorcyclist safety, 
and nonmotorized safety.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    Consistent with the amounts authorized in the INVEST in 
America Act, the Committee recommends $855,488,000 in 
liquidating cash from the Highway Trust Fund to pay outstanding 
obligations of the Highway Traffic Safety Grant programs at the 
levels provided in this Act and prior Appropriations Acts. The 
Committee also recommends limiting obligations from the Highway 
Trust Fund in fiscal year 2022 for the Highway Traffic Safety 
Grant programs to $855,488,000. The following table provides 
funding levels for activities within this account:

    Safety promotional materials.--For the purpose of Federal 
grants administered by NHTSA, safety equipment purchased for 
traffic safety education trainings, such as child car seats, 
bicycle helmets and lights, and reflective vests, shall not be 
considered promotional materials or memorabilia.
    Distracted driving.--The Committee notes that in 2019, more 
than 3,000 people were killed in crashes involving a distracted 
driver, a 10 percent increase over the previous year. NTSB 
lists eliminating distractions as a key safety improvement that 
would save lives. The Committee continues to fund NHTSA 
programs that support state efforts to educate the public and 
to enforce laws promoting safe driving habits and to prevent 
unnecessary deaths.
    State traffic safety information system improvements.--The 
Committee recognizes the potential dangers to drivers and 
pedestrians caused by the delays associated with mailed paper 
notices of out-of-state driving infractions. In coordination 
with the National Driver Registry funded under ``Operations and 
Research,'' and to help meet the outlined purpose of grants 
under sections 402 and 405 of title 23, United States Code, the 
Committee directs NHTSA to continue to provide technical 
assistance to states on improving the interoperability of state 
and national traffic safety information systems, and, where 
possible, to build capacity for a transition to digital 
notifications. In addition, within one-year after enactment of 
this Act, the Committee directs NHTSA to produce a publicly 
available report on what challenges states are facing with 
improving their traffic safety coordination and to brief the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on the findings 
of the analysis.

      ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISIONS--NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY 
                             ADMINISTRATION

    Section 140 provides limited funding for travel and related 
expenses associated with state management reviews and highway 
safety core competency development training.
    Section 141 exempts from the current fiscal year's 
obligation limitation any obligation authority that was made 
available in previous public laws.
    Section 142 provides additional funding for highway safety 
programs.
    Section 143 prohibits funds from being used to enforce 
certain state maintenance of effort requirements under 23 
U.S.C. 405.

                    Federal Railroad Administration

    The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) was established 
by the Department of Transportation Act (P.L. 89-670) on 
October 15, 1966. FRA plans, develops, and administers programs 
and regulations to promote the safe operation of freight and 
passenger rail transportation in the United States. The U.S. 
freight railroad system consists of approximately 630 railroads 
and 140,000 miles of track, which deliver approximately 
5,000,000 tons of goods each day. In addition, FRA oversees 
grants to the National Railroad Passenger Corporation (Amtrak) 
with the goal of assisting Amtrak with improving its passenger 
rail service and physical infrastructure.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Competitive grants.--The Committee recognizes that 
competitive grant programs require dedicated staff and contract 
support to issue notice of funding opportunities (NOFOs), 
review applications, select projects for awards, execute grant 
agreements, and conduct project management oversight. In fiscal 
year 2022, the Committee again provides significant resources 
to help communities address transportation challenges through 
FRA competitive grant programs. This investment by Congress in 
the nation's rail infrastructure requires a robust program of 
grant management and oversight. Therefore, the Act allows the 
Secretary to withhold up to two percent of the funding provided 
for the passenger rail improvement, modernization, and 
expansion (PRIME) and consolidated rail infrastructure and 
safety improvements (CRISI) grant programs to support the costs 
of grant awards and project management oversight. In addition, 
section 152 of this Act provides FRA with additional 
flexibilities in the use of such administrative set-asides. The 
Committee directs FRA to administer and manage all FRA 
competitive grant programs funded by this Act in a timely and 
responsible manner. Further, the Committee continues to direct 
FRA to provide quarterly reports to the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations on the status of grant agreements 
and obligations for all awards for fiscal years 2017 through 
2022 for the Federal-state partnership for state of good 
repair, CRISI, and PRIME grant programs.
    Safe transportation of energy products.--The Committee 
recommendation supports FRA's safe transportation of energy 
products programs, which includes safety inspectors, safety 
route managers, tank car quality assurance specialists, tank 
car research, and increased mileage of the automated track 
inspection program (ATIP) on routes that carry energy products.
    ATIP.--The ATIP uses track geometry measurement vehicles to 
automatically measure track conditions which supplement the 
work of FRA inspectors to ensure railroads are compliant with 
FRA track safety standards. The Committee recommendation 
supports the inspection of passenger rail routes, commuter rail 
routes, routes that carry energy products and other hazardous 
materials, and further enhancements to the ATIP's inspection 
capabilities. The Committee notes that funds provided for the 
ATIP in fiscal year 2022 are available to inspect tracks and 
analyze data from the ATIP operations and inspections.
    Positive train control (PTC).--The Committee commends 
freight, passenger, and commuter railroads and FRA for fully 
implementing FRA-certified and interoperable PTC systems by 
December 31, 2020 as required by law and FRA's regulations. PTC 
is now in operation across the country on nearly 58,000 route 
miles which carry passengers or certain hazardous materials as 
required by the Rail Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (P.L. 110-
432). The Committee understands FRA will play an ongoing role 
in the oversight, approval, and enforcement of PTC regulations, 
including performance monitoring, compliance audits, and 
approval of safety-critical modifications and upgrades. In 
addition, should new passenger rail service be initiated or 
railroads seek to voluntarily implement PTC, FRA would provide 
technical support and conduct the necessary oversight and 
approvals of PTC safety plans. The Committee recommendation 
provides funding to support FRA's work on these activities in 
fiscal year 2022.
    Trespasser prevention.--Pedestrians trespassing on railroad 
property remains the leading cause of all rail-related 
fatalities, accounting for 70 percent of all U.S. rail-related 
deaths in 2020. The Committee commends FRA for its commitment 
to addressing this issue and its work to implement the National 
Strategy to Prevent Trespassing on Railroad Property (National 
Strategy). As reported by FRA in the 2020 progress update, FRA 
has completed 18 of the 20 tasks in the National Strategy, with 
work in process on the remaining two tasks. Of the 18 completed 
tasks, 11 are ongoing activities. The railroad trespassing 
enforcement grant and railroad trespassing suicide prevention 
grant programs which FRA initiated in part in response to the 
National Strategy, and were made possible by funding provided 
through the safety and operations account in fiscal years 2019 
and 2020, were oversubscribed. The Committee understands that 
FRA will continue to advance the goals of the National Strategy 
by conducting more outreach and local assessments, developing 
new partnerships, and gathering and analyzing data. The 
Committee recommendation provides funding for FRA to continue 
these activities in fiscal year 2022. In addition, as proposed 
in the budget request, the Committee recommendation provides 
funding for activities supported by the railroad trespassing 
enforcement grant and railroad trespassing suicide prevention 
grant programs through a set-aside within the CRISI grant 
program. Further, the Committee directs FRA to update the 
National Strategy annually with the most current data 
available, FRA's progress on the milestones outlined in the 
National Strategy, and any potential new initiatives to reduce 
trespasser fatalities. FRA is directed to submit the updated 
National Strategy to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations no later than June 30 each year.
    Highway-rail grade crossing safety.--Highway-rail grade 
crossing collisions are the second leading cause of all rail-
related fatalities in the United States, accounting for 26 
percent of all U.S. rail-related deaths in 2020. Despite more 
than half of all public crossings being equipped with active 
warning devices, 68 percent of collisions occur at crossings 
with active, functional warning devices. The Committee 
understands that FRA has established a technology and 
automation division to assist with the development, 
coordination, and implementation of new technology across the 
rail industry. FRA is also using a data driven process to 
identify the most dangerous highway-rail grade crossings, which 
allows FRA to engage with communities, state and local 
agencies, law enforcement, railroads, and advocacy 
organizations to identify potential local solutions. In 
addition, FRA is assisting communities in identifying Federal 
funding opportunities, improving outreach and partnerships, 
gathering and analyzing data, and conducting research and 
development. The Committee directs FRA to continue these 
activities and provides funding to support FRA's work in fiscal 
year 2022.
    Blocked railroad crossings.--The Committee remains 
concerned with the prevalence of railroad crossings blocked by 
trains, and the potential impacts to communities and safety. 
The website FRA launched for the public and law enforcement to 
report blocked railroad crossings has been operational for over 
a year. The Committee appreciates FRA's work to review, 
analyze, and when appropriate, investigate, these reports. The 
Committee directs FRA to continue to use the information 
gathered through the website to work with communities, state 
and local agencies, law enforcement, railroads, and others to 
develop local solutions to blocked railroad crossings.
    Amfleet replacement.--The Committee notes that the 
Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (P.L. 116-260) directed 
FRA to utilize the flexibilities provided in 2 CFR 
200.308(d)(1) to allow state acquisition costs and on-going 
capital charges related to Amtrak's new fleet to be an eligible 
activity in any future NOFOs for the CRISI and Federal-state 
partnership for state of good repair grant programs. The 
Committee continues this direction for the CRISI and PRIME 
grant programs for fiscal year 2022.
    Washington Union Station expansion project.--The Committee 
recognizes the importance of Washington Union Station as a 
multimodal transportation hub for the National Capital Region. 
The Committee understands plans are underway to expand capacity 
and improve multimodal facilities at the station and that FRA, 
as the lead Federal agency, is preparing an environmental 
impact statement (EIS) for the project. The Committee further 
understands that it could be beneficial to the project for FRA, 
as the representative of the Department of Transportation, 
which is the station complex Federal owner, to conduct near-
term project development activities to evaluate implementation 
options for the proposed project, such as real estate studies, 
financial analysis, and project structure. Conducting these 
activities concurrent with the EIS process could better 
position FRA, Amtrak, and stakeholders to plan for and carry 
out steps to advance the project following the conclusion of 
the EIS process. In addition to FRA working with Amtrak to 
advance the project, FRA may use funding provided under this 
heading to initiate these activities in fiscal year 2022. 
Further, the Committee directs FRA to continue working with the 
District of Columbia government on the project and to consider 
the feedback of all stakeholders, including residents of 
affected neighborhoods, in its planning process.
    Direct intercity and commuter rail service.--The Committee 
recognizes the economic benefits of direct intercity and 
commuter rail service in connecting urban and suburban areas 
and advancing projects that facilitate expanded opportunities 
for one-seat ride service to and from New York Penn Station, 
the busiest station in the United States. The Committee urges 
FRA and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) to work 
together with Amtrak and commuter rail agencies, as sufficient 
resources are available, to expedite regional investments on 
the northeast corridor that would unlock new capacity for 
currently underserved communities in New York and New Jersey 
and along the northeast corridor.
    Railroad safety inspectors and specialists.--The Committee 
notes the importance of a well-trained, stable workforce of 
railroad safety inspectors and specialists to the overall 
safety of the passenger and freight rail transportation system. 
This workforce is in high demand and FRA faces competition from 
the private sector for these skilled safety professionals. The 
Committee understands that the position classifications for 
railroad safety inspectors and railroad safety specialists are 
authorized in section 5109(b) of title 5, United States Code, 
sets a minimum position classification, and that these position 
classifications have not been updated since 1979. The Committee 
directs FRA to review the position descriptions and 
classifications for railroad safety inspectors and railroad 
safety specialists. This review should include advances in 
technology and automation, any additional scope of technical 
work and duties that may not be reflected in current position 
descriptions, and a comparison between FRA's railroad safety 
inspectors and railroad safety specialists with other 
government positions that perform similar duties for other 
Federal agencies, such as the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials 
Safety Administration, the FTA, and National Transportation 
Safety Board. In addition, this review should take into 
consideration information gathered in the recent review and 
update of the position descriptions for railroad safety 
inspectors and railroad safety specialists. The Committee 
directs FRA to brief the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations, the House Transportation and Infrastructure 
Committee, and the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and 
Transportation no later than 180 days after enactment of this 
Act on the results of its review of the position descriptions 
and classifications, including any recommendations on using 
FRA's existing authorities to update the position descriptions 
and classifications to reflect advances in technology and 
automation and any additional scope of technical work and 
duties, retaining FRA's workforce, and recruiting, hiring, and 
training railroad safety inspectors and railroad safety 
specialists.

                   RAILROAD RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

 
 
 
Appropriation, fiscal year 2021.......................       $41,000,000
Budget request, fiscal year 2022......................        58,826,000
Recommended in the bill...............................        53,826,000

    Budget request, fiscal year 2022..................        -5,000,000
 

    The railroad research and development program provides 
science and technology support for FRA's policy and regulatory 
efforts. The program's objectives are to reduce the frequency 
and severity of railroad accidents through scientific 
advancement, and to support technological innovations in 
conventional and high-speed railroads.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation provides $53,826,000 for the 
railroad research and development program.
    The Committee directs FRA to undertake research and 
development activities in all disciplines--track research, 
rolling stock, signals, train control and communications, human 
factors, and railroad systems--in order to maximize gains in 
rail safety and directs FRA to prioritize the introduction of 
new technology and data analysis methods to improve safety in 
all areas of railroad operations.
    Safe transportation of energy products.--The Committee 
provides $2,500,000 for FRA to research and mitigate risks 
associated with the transportation of crude oil, ethanol, 
liquefied natural gas (LNG), and other hazardous materials, 
including tank car research in partnership with other Federal 
agencies. The Committee is aware of several research and 
development projects FRA and the Pipeline and Hazardous 
Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) are actively pursuing 
relating to the transportation of LNG in rail tank cars and the 
use of LNG as a fuel for locomotives. The Committee directs 
FRA, in collaboration with PHMSA, to continue to support 
cooperative research on the safe use of LNG in these 
applications which should inform rulemaking.
    Emissions reduction.--Freight railroads account for about 
40 percent of U.S. freight transportation but only 1.9 percent 
of U.S. transportation-related greenhouse gas emissions. 
Similarly, on a per-passenger-per mile basis, Amtrak is 46 
percent more energy efficient than traveling by car and 34 
percent more energy efficient than domestic air travel. Despite 
this, the Committee recognizes that more can and should be done 
to reduce the emissions associated with freight and passenger 
rail operations. FRA, the Department of Energy (DOE), and the 
private sector are conducting research, development, and 
testing on alternative fuels for locomotives, including the use 
of electric batteries, hydrogen, fuel cell technologies, LNG, 
biofuels, and renewable biodiesel. The Committee directs FRA, 
in collaboration with DOE, to continue to support cooperative 
research on innovative technology solutions for low- or no-
emission alternative fuels, including zero emission 
technologies, engine improvements, and motive power 
technologies. In addition, the Committee directs FRA to conduct 
research, development, testing, and analysis to determine the 
safety of such technologies, any additional emergency response 
planning and training requirements relating to such 
technologies, related infrastructure requirements to support 
such technologies, and any other activities FRA deems necessary 
to ensure the safe operations of such technologies. The 
Committee provides $5,000,000 to support this research, which 
could improve energy efficiency, hasten the transition from 
traditional diesel fuel locomotives, and spur the development 
and deployment of low- or no-emission technologies.
    Workforce development.--The Committee notes that FRA's 
railroad systems issues program has conducted workforce 
development activities for several years, focusing on the 
recruitment, retention, and development of the railroad 
workforce. FRA recently conducted a survey to collect data from 
railroad stakeholders to better understand the challenges 
facing the railroad workforce. The 2017-2018 survey found 
common themes related to concerns with training and emerging 
technologies, an aging workforce and succession planning, 
diversity, and data collection and sharing. The Committee 
understands that FRA's research will focus on gathering and 
analyzing data on trends, skill gaps, skill demands, training 
opportunities, and industry best practices; identifying 
innovative approaches to recruiting talent, attracting and 
retaining a more diverse workforce, and knowledge sharing and 
succession planning; improving training and educational 
opportunities; and fostering an interest in railroad related 
employment through science, technology, engineering, and 
mathematics (STEM) programs for pre-K-12, as well as minority 
serving institutions, technical and vocational schools, and 
community colleges. The Committee provides up to $5,000,000 to 
support these research activities, including working with 
minority serving institutions. Further, the Committee supports 
FRA's efforts to address diversity, equity, and inclusion in 
the railroad workforce through its research activities.
    Workforce safety.--The Committee notes that FRA's railroad 
safety inspector workforce includes hazardous materials safety 
inspectors whose duties require them to enter potentially 
hazardous environments and have exposed them to dangerous 
chemicals. The Committee directs FRA to use funding provided 
under this heading to conduct a pilot program on multi-gas 
detectors. This pilot program shall include purchasing several 
different types of multi-gas detectors, evaluating the 
capabilities of such devices to detect a wide range of 
potential hazards under the real-world conditions experienced 
by hazardous materials safety inspectors, and determining the 
calibration, maintenance, and training program the use of such 
devices would require. The Committee directs FRA to report to 
the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on the 
findings of the pilot program upon its completion.
    PTC.--As previously noted, freight, passenger, and commuter 
railroads fully implemented PTC systems on nearly 58,000 route 
miles across the country by December 31, 2020. While this marks 
a significant achievement for rail safety, the Committee 
recognizes that work on PTC does not end with this milestone. 
The Committee understands that FRA's train control and 
communication research program will continue to develop and 
test next generation PTC technology to provide additional 
functionality, improve reliability, support integration with 
other technologies, and ensure safe operations. The Committee 
supports FRA's continued focus on PTC and directs FRA to foster 
the development and deployment of the next generation of PTC 
technologies.
    Trespasser prevention and highway-rail grade crossing 
safety.--As previously noted, the Committee is concerned that 
the two leading causes of all rail-related fatalities are 
trespassing on railroad rights-of-way and collisions at 
highway-rail grade crossings. Combined, these two causes 
accounted for 96 percent of all rail-related fatalities in 
2020. The Committee urges FRA to continue research and 
development activities which could improve trespass detection 
and prevention, including at or near highway-rail grade 
crossings, and to assist with the National Strategy to Prevent 
Trespassing on Railroad Property. In addition, the Committee 
urges FRA to continue research and development activities on 
grade crossing technology and engineering solutions, including 
human interactions with such technology.
    Short-line safety.--The Committee provides $3,000,000 to 
improve safety practices and training and develop safety 
management systems for class II and class III freight 
railroads. This funding supports FRA's initiative to partner 
with short-line and regional railroads to build a stronger, 
more sustainable safety culture through safety culture 
assessments, training and education, including on the safe 
transportation of energy products and other hazardous 
materials, outreach activities, and research.
    Electronic systems.--The Committee recognizes that 
continued investment in freight and passenger rail 
infrastructure programs will make rail infrastructure, 
equipment, and the operating environment safer. Therefore, the 
Committee urges FRA to continue prioritizing investments in the 
development of technologies designed to verify the functional 
performance of complex onboard and wayside electronic systems 
such as: PTC, automated train control, passenger door control, 
train communications, computer based train control and land 
mobile radio testing, and train environmental control. The 
Committee recognizes the importance of deploying these 
technologies in new and existing systems and acknowledges 
investments made in such technologies by cities, transportation 
agencies, and railroads across the country. The Committee urges 
FRA to continue working with industry to develop standardized 
performance specifications, test and verification processes, 
and maintenance and diagnostics tools for such systems.

    Budget request, fiscal year 2022..................      +125,000,000
 

    The consolidated rail infrastructure and safety 
improvements (CRISI) grant program is authorized by section 
22907 of title 49, United States Code, to improve the safety, 
efficiency, and reliability of passenger and freight rail 
transportation systems. Eligible activities include a wide 
range of capital, regional and corridor planning, environmental 
analyses, research, workforce development, and training 
projects.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation provides $500,000,000 for the 
CRISI grant program. Of the total funds provided, not less than 
$150,000,000 is for projects eligible under section 22907(c)(2) 
of title 49, United States Code, that support the development 
of new intercity passenger rail service routes including 
alignments for existing routes; not less than $25,000,000 is 
for projects to reduce trespassing on railroad property and 
along railroad rights-of-way; and not more than $5,000,000 is 
for planning and project development activities.
    Trespasser prevention.--The Committee is committed to 
reducing the number of deaths from pedestrians trespassing on 
railroad rights-of-way. FRA identified funding as one of four 
strategic areas in its National Strategy to Prevent Trespassing 
on Railroad Property. The National Strategy notes that programs 
like CRISI could help communities implement targeted trespasser 
mitigation strategies. Therefore, the Committee provides not 
less than $25,000,000 for projects to reduce trespassing on 
railroad property and along railroad rights-of-way and directs 
FRA to give preference to projects located in counties with the 
most pedestrian trespasser casualties. The Committee further 
directs FRA to provide technical assistance to applicants to 
ensure proposed trespasser mitigation projects meet CRISI grant 
program requirements.
    Planning grants.--The Committee recognizes that planning 
support can be critical for communities seeking to invest in 
and improve rail infrastructure. While CRISI project 
eligibility includes the preparation of regional rail and 
corridor service development plans and corresponding 
environmental analyses, project specific planning is not an 
eligible use under section 22907(c) of title 49, United States 
Code. Therefore, the Committee provides not more than 
$5,000,000 for planning and project development activities to 
assist communities in developing passenger and freight rail 
projects. This funding would support activities such as project 
planning, engineering, design, environmental analysis, 
feasibility studies, the development and analysis of project 
alternatives, the preparation of reginal intercity passenger 
rail plans, and state rail plans.

    The magnetic levitation technology deployment (MAGLEV) 
program is authorized under section 322 of title 23, United 
States Code. The MAGLEV program funds transportation systems 
that employ magnetic levitation and are capable of safe use by 
the public at speeds in excess of 240 miles per hour.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation provides $5,000,000 for the 
MAGLEV program. This funding is available for preconstruction 
planning activities and capital costs.

     GRANTS TO THE NATIONAL RAILROAD PASSENGER CORPORATION (AMTRAK)

    Amtrak was created by Congress in the Rail Passenger 
Service Act of 1970 (P.L. 91-518) to operate intercity 
passenger rail service, which was previously operated by 
private railroads. Amtrak assumed the common carrier 
obligations of the private railroads in exchange for the right 
to priority access to the private railroad tracks for an 
incremental cost.
    Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Amtrak operated more than 
300 trains each day to more than 500 destinations in 46 states, 
the District of Columbia, and Canada. About 75 percent of the 
miles traveled by Amtrak trains are on tracks owned by other 
railroads, and Amtrak owns 624 route-miles of its own track, 
most of which is on the northeast corridor (NEC) from 
Washington, D.C. to Boston, Massachusetts. In fiscal year 2019, 
Amtrak carried 32,500,000 people on the NEC, state-supported 
routes, and long-distance routes.
    The FAST Act authorizes funding for northeast corridor 
grants to Amtrak and national network grants to Amtrak, which 
encompasses Amtrak's state-supported and long-distance routes, 
as well as other non-NEC activities.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation provides a total of 
$2,700,000,000 for Amtrak through the northeast corridor grants 
and national network grants accounts, which is consistent with 
the FAST Act authorized structure.
    In addition, the Coronavirus Response and Relief 
Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (P.L. 116-260) and 
American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (P.L. 117-2) provided a total 
of $2,700,000,000 for Amtrak to prevent, prepare for, and 
respond to COVID-19 through the northeast corridor grants and 
national network grants. The Committee notes that Amtrak's 
General and Legislative Annual Report & Fiscal Year 2022 Grant 
Request identified $1,771,700,000 in additional COVID-19 relief 
needs in fiscal year 2022 in order to respond to the COVID-19 
pandemic. While the Committee has and continues to strongly 
support Amtrak's workforce, operations, and assistance to 
states and commuter rail agencies operating on state-supported 
routes and the NEC, such support in fiscal years 2020 and 2021 
was provided through supplemental emergency funding. The 
Committee remains committed to working with others in Congress 
in the coming months to address the additional COVID-19 relief 
needs through other legislative opportunities.
    Congressional budget justification.--The Committee 
appreciates the level of detail in the fiscal year 2022 budget 
justification and directs Amtrak to submit a budget 
justification with a similar level of detail for fiscal year 
2023.
    New or expanded passenger rail service.--The Committee 
understands that Amtrak has engaged in a multiyear process to 
review its existing route network and potential changes which 
could provide new or expanded passenger rail service throughout 
the nation. Amtrak studied demographic changes and travel 
trends and conducted outreach and site visits with 
stakeholders, including state and local governments, economic 
development organizations, and the public. This work resulted 
in the Amtrak Connects US plan, which could create up to 39 new 
routes, improve as many as 25 existing routes, serve up to 166 
more cities, and expand service in up to 16 states by 2035. 
Unlike in past discussions about new or expanded service, the 
Committee understands this plan would not supplant or reduce 
service on Amtrak's 15 long-distance and 28 state-supported 
routes. It is entirely additive to Amtrak's existing service.
    The Committee strongly supports passenger rail service. 
Passenger rail helps reduce single occupancy trips, traffic 
congestion, and harmful emissions that contribute to climate 
change. While the Committee sees promise in Amtrak's plan, it 
is vital that any such new or expanded service continues to be 
carried out in close collaboration with FRA, states, local 
governments, and other stakeholders. States and local 
governments have successfully improved or expanded passenger 
rail service, are actively working on additional projects, and 
must continue to have the opportunity to serve as leads on 
projects and should have the opportunity to partner with 
Amtrak. The Committee understands that Amtrak intends for the 
Amtrak Connects US plan to provide a vision for Amtrak's future 
passenger rail service, but that Amtrak does not intend it to 
be the final plan. The Committee further understands that 
Amtrak welcomes engagement with states, local communities, and 
other regional stakeholders on additional new or expanded 
service, which may include routes along existing long-distance 
service as well as corridor service that connects to long-
distance service. As Amtrak works to advance its plan, the 
Committee directs Amtrak to continue to conduct comprehensive 
outreach and consultation with state and local governments, the 
state-supported route committee (known as the State-Amtrak 
intercity passenger rail committee (SAIPRC)), Amtrak employees, 
communities, passenger rail organizations, host railroads, and 
the public. Amtrak must engage in an open and transparent 
process which encompasses anyone who could be impacted, 
positively or negatively, by such plans. Further, the Committee 
strongly reminds Amtrak that section 24701 of title 49, United 
States Code, requires Amtrak to operate a national passenger 
rail system, and urges Amtrak to ensure any potential changes 
also increase ridership in rural areas and improve service for 
long-distance customers.
    State-supported route cost sharing.--Section 24712(a)(6) of 
title 49, United States Code, authorizes SAIPRC to amend the 
cost allocation methodology approved under section 209 of the 
Passenger Rail Investment and Improvement Act of 2008 (P.L. 
110-432). The Committee understands that SAIPRC members, which 
includes Amtrak, FRA, and 20 state agencies responsible for 
supporting 28 state-supported routes, voted to update and 
revise the section 209 cost allocation methodology, and 
approved a set of principles to guide the development of such 
revisions. A process is now underway to review, develop, and 
approve a revised section 209 cost allocation methodology by 
March 31, 2022. The Committee is encouraged with the 
recognition by Amtrak and the state agencies that the section 
209 cost allocation methodology ``needs to be updated and 
revised to address the cost approach and the business 
relationship between the States and Amtrak.'' The Committee 
directs Amtrak and FRA to work with the state agencies, in the 
forum of SAIPRC, in an open and transparent manner on the 
effort to revise the section 209 cost allocation methodology.
    In addition, the Committee understands that the Amtrak OIG 
initiated an audit to assess the process and data Amtrak uses 
to allocate costs for state-supported routes, including 
processes for managing cost-sharing, billing states, and 
addressing concerns with the section 209 cost allocation 
methodology. Upon the completion of this audit, the Committee 
directs the Amtrak OIG to brief the House and Senate Committees 
on Appropriations on Amtrak's actions relating to any potential 
recommendations and no later than 120 days after enactment of 
this Act.
    Modernizing the NEC.--Amtrak's NEC is the busiest passenger 
rail segment in North America. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, 
2,160 Amtrak, commuter rail, and freight trains operated on 
some portion of the NEC each day and about 820,000 passengers 
were served daily by Amtrak and commuter rail trains. Most of 
the NEC infrastructure was built between the Civil War and 
1930s, and according to the northeast corridor commission the 
NEC has a state of good repair backlog of more than 
$42,000,000,000. The NEC is critical to the national economy, 
with the loss of NEC services for just one day estimated to 
cost the national economy $100,000,000 in transportation-
related impacts and productivity losses. The Committee 
recognizes that modernizing the NEC is crucial to sustaining 
and growing economic activity. Investments are needed 
throughout the system; from replacing basic infrastructure, 
like track, structures, communications and signals, and 
electronic traction, to replacing or rehabilitating major 
assets, like bridges, stations, and tunnels. The Committee has 
consistently supported such activities through the northeast 
corridor grants account. The Committee continues to support 
Amtrak's efforts to advance such infrastructure projects, 
consistent with the northeast corridor commission's northeast 
corridor commuter and intercity rail cost allocation policy, 
through the northeast corridor grants account and its non-
Federal revenue to ensure the vitality of the corridor and 
support continued growth in passenger service.
    New York Penn Station access.--The Committee understands 
efforts are underway to establish a direct commuter rail 
connection between New York Penn Station and an underserved 
area of the East Bronx, which includes adding new commuter rail 
service on a segment of Amtrak's NEC infrastructure, known as 
the hell gate line, that currently does not support commuter 
rail service. The Committee further understands that joint 
beneficiaries of infrastructure projects on the NEC need to 
reach cost-sharing agreements for such projects in a manner 
consistent with the northeast corridor commission's northeast 
corridor commuter and intercity rail cost allocation policy. 
Negotiations are ongoing between Amtrak and a commuter rail 
agency on a cost-sharing agreement for infrastructure 
investments to bring the hell gate line to a state of good 
repair and accommodate the new commuter rail service. The 
Committee urges Amtrak to continue working with the commuter 
rail agency to finalize the cost-sharing agreement as soon as 
practicable. Further, the Committee reminds Amtrak and commuter 
rail agencies of the dispute resolution processes available 
under sections 24905(c)(2) and 24905(c)(4) of title 49, United 
States Code.
    ADA accessibility at Amtrak stations.--The Committee notes 
that the Department of Justice (DOJ) filed a complaint against 
Amtrak for violating and continuing to violate the Americans 
with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 (P.L. 101-336) by failing 
to make existing stations used in intercity rail transportation 
accessible to and useable by individuals with disabilities. The 
ADA provided Amtrak 20 years, until July 26, 2010, to complete 
the necessary upgrades at existing stations. DOJ and Amtrak 
reached a settlement agreement in December 2020 in which Amtrak 
committed to fixing inaccessible stations, compensating 
individuals harmed by inaccessible stations while trying to 
travel by train to or from 78 stations with significant 
accessibility issues through a $2,250,000 settlement fund, 
training staff on ADA requirements, and implementing an agreed-
upon process for accepting and handling ADA complaints.
    According to the Americans with Disabilities Act Stations 
Program Report Amtrak submitted to the House and Senate 
Appropriations Committees in response to direction in House 
Report 116-452, 74 of the 386 stations (or 19 percent) at which 
Amtrak has either sole or shared ADA responsibilities were 
fully ADA compliant as of April 1, 2021. In addition, Amtrak 
has reached partial ADA compliance at another 71 stations but 
work on the platforms remains to be completed in order to 
become fully compliant. The Committee understands that Amtrak 
anticipates becoming fully ADA compliant for all station 
components for which Amtrak bears responsibility by September 
30, 2027. According to the most recent Americans with 
Disabilities Act Stations Program Strategy Five-Year Plan, 
Amtrak anticipates spending more than $900,000,000 on design 
and construction work between fiscal years 2021 and 2026. 
Therefore, the Committee recommendation provides $75,000,000 
through the northeast corridor grants and national network 
grants accounts to bring Amtrak-served facilities and stations 
into compliance with the ADA. Further, the Committee urges 
Amtrak to also use its non-Federal revenue to advance this 
work. In addition, the Committee directs Amtrak to submit an 
updated report to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations no later than 120 days after enactment of this 
Act detailing the Americans with Disabilities Act stations 
program plan and timeline to make the remaining 312 stations 
ADA compliant and accessible.
    Finally, the Committee understands that the Amtrak OIG is 
conducting an audit to assess Amtrak's compliance with the ADA, 
including the management of the Americans with Disabilities Act 
stations program and Amtrak's policies and procedures relating 
to individuals with disabilities. Upon the completion of this 
audit, the Committee directs the Amtrak OIG to brief the House 
and Senate Committees on Appropriations on Amtrak's actions 
relating to any potential recommendations and no later than 120 
days after enactment of this Act.
    Station agents.--Since fiscal year 2019, the Committee has 
directed Amtrak to provide a station agent in each Amtrak 
station that had a ticket agent position eliminated in fiscal 
year 2018. Station agents assist passengers with their 
passenger rail travel, conduct the sale of tickets, provide 
customer service during all hours that a station is open, and 
perform building maintenance duties. In fiscal year 2020, 
Amtrak began working to fill these positions, advertising 
positions internally and subsequently to the general public, 
conducting interviews, and making hires. Amtrak continues to 
work to recruit, hire, and retain employees at these stations. 
The Committee continues to direct Amtrak to provide a station 
agent in each Amtrak station that had a ticket agent position 
eliminated in fiscal year 2018. In addition, Amtrak is directed 
to continue to improve communication and collaboration with 
local partners and take into consideration the unique needs of 
each community, including impacts to local jobs, when making 
decisions related to the staffing of Amtrak stations.
    Safety.--The Committee appreciates Amtrak's commitment to 
ensuring the safety of Amtrak's passengers, employees, 
property, and infrastructure. The Committee understands that 
Amtrak is working to implement recommendations made by the 
Amtrak OIG in report OIG-A-2020-012. As Amtrak continues this 
work, the Committee directs Amtrak to ensure that its workforce 
has opportunities to engage in the process and to brief the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations no later than 60 
days after enactment of this Act. The Committee understands 
that Amtrak is complying with section 151 of the Consolidated 
Appropriations Act, 2021 (P.L. 116-260) and directs Amtrak to 
report quarterly to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations on Amtrak's efforts to implement section 151.
    Contact centers.--The contact center in Philadelphia, 
Pennsylvania assists Amtrak's customers with booking travel, 
managing their Amtrak guest rewards program, arranging group or 
special travel, navigating reimbursements, addressing 
complaints, and more. The Committee continues to believe the 
employees at the contact center provide an important service to 
Amtrak's customers and that Amtrak should continue to employ a 
dedicated Amtrak workforce to support the customer service 
functions at the Philadelphia contact center. The Committee 
directs Amtrak to continue operations at the Philadelphia 
contact center with a dedicated workforce consisting of Amtrak 
employees, maintain such operations with Amtrak employees, and 
minimize the use of outside vendors to perform telephonic or 
internet-based customer service support. In addition, Amtrak 
should provide its contact center employees with training on 
new forms of telephonic or internet-based customer service 
communication features. Further, the Committee directs Amtrak 
to report quarterly to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations on the total number of Amtrak employees at the 
Philadelphia contact center, including data on separations, 
hiring, and vacancies.
    Private cars and charter trains.--In fiscal year 2018, 
Amtrak issued new guidelines for private cars on Amtrak trains 
and charter trains operated by Amtrak. The Committee continues 
to direct Amtrak to review and evaluate the locations and 
trains that may be eligible for private car moves, update the 
guidelines for private cars on Amtrak if additional locations 
or trains meet Amtrak's criteria, and notify private car owners 
of these changes. In addition, the Committee directs Amtrak to 
continue to brief the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations on the effects of these guidelines on private 
cars and charter trains and how Amtrak could achieve its goals 
without negatively impacting private car and charter train 
operations. Amtrak is directed to include an updated report on 
private car and charter train policies in its fiscal year 2023 
budget justification. The report should include the amounts and 
percentages by which revenues and usage declined for private 
cars and charter trains. For charter trains, such information 
should be provided as separate figures for Amtrak-owned and 
privately-owned charter trains. The Committee acknowledges that 
certain information may be commercially sensitive and cannot be 
made public. Therefore, the Committee directs Amtrak to provide 
such information through briefings to the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations.
    Cybersecurity.--The Committee understands that Amtrak is 
working to implement the Amtrak cybersecurity strategic plan to 
create a more cyber resilient environment that reduces risks 
and quickly detects cyber threats in Amtrak's enterprise, 
critical infrastructure, and cloud environments, consistent 
with standards developed by the National Institute of 
Technology and Standards. The Committee supports Amtrak's plans 
to use fiscal year 2022 funding to implement its cybersecurity 
strategic plan through capital and operating activities, 
including the use of cyber deception capabilities.

and Retraining Notification Act.
    Section 152 establishes conditions for funding relating to 
the cost of award and project management oversight of grants 
with certain exceptions.
    Section 153 rescinds certain unobligated balances.

                     Federal Transit Administration

    The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) was established as 
a component of the Department of Transportation on July 1, 
1968, when most of the functions and programs under the Federal 
Transit Act (78 Stat. 302; 49 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.) were 
transferred from the Department of Housing and Urban 
Development. The Federal Transit Administration administers 
Federal financial assistance programs for planning, developing, 
and improving comprehensive mass transportation systems in both 
urban and non-urban areas.
    The most recent authorization for the programs under FTA is 
contained in the FAST Act (P.L. 114-94). Annual appropriations 
Acts include annual limitations on obligations for the transit 
formula grants programs, and direct appropriations of budget 
authority from the General Fund of the Treasury for FTA's 
administrative expenses, some research programs, and capital 
investment grants.

    The FTA administers Federal financial assistance programs 
for planning, developing, and improving comprehensive mass 
transportation systems in both urban and non-urban areas. This 
appropriation provides, from the General Fund of the Treasury, 
amounts for the administrative expenses of the agency.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends a total of $132,500,000 for FTA's 
administrative expenses to remain available until September 30, 
2023 including $1,000,000, to remain available until expended, 
to administer local transportation priorities provided under 
the header ``Highway Infrastructure Programs''. The Committee's 
recommendation provides these funds from the General Fund.
    Operating plans.--The Committee directs FTA to comply with 
all directives for operating plans and reprogramming guidelines 
within this Act. Consistent with these guidelines, the 
Committee directs FTA to provide an operating plan to the House 
and Senate Committees on Appropriations within 60 days of 
enactment of this Act and to follow the reprogramming 
requirements contained in section 405 of this Act and prior 
Acts.
    Budget justifications.--The Committee strongly encourages 
FTA to maintain the format and content of the fiscal year 2021 
budget justification in the fiscal year 2023 documents.
    Annual new starts report.--The Committee has again included 
language in the Act requiring FTA to submit the annual new 
starts report with the initial submission of the fiscal year 
2023 budget request.
    Full funding grant agreements (FFGA).--Title 49 of the 
United States Code requires that FTA notify the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations as well as the House 
Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and the Senate 
Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs 30 days prior 
to executing a FFGA. In its notification to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations, the Committee directs FTA 
to include the following: (1) a copy of the proposed FFGA; (2) 
the total and annual Federal appropriations amount required for 
the project; (3) yearly and total Federal appropriations amount 
that can be reasonably planned or anticipated for future FFGAs 
for each fiscal year through 2025; (4) a detailed analysis of 
annual commitments for current and anticipated FFGAs against 
the program authorization, by individual project; (5) a 
financial analysis of the project's cost and the sponsor's 
ability to finance the project, which shall be conducted by an 
independent examiner, and shall include an assessment of the 
capital cost estimate and finance plan; (6) the source and 
security of all public- and private-sector financial 
instruments; (7) the project's operating plan, which enumerates 
the project's future revenue and ridership forecasts; and (8) a 
listing of all planned contingencies and possible risks 
associated with the project.
    The Committee continues to direct FTA to inform the House 
and Senate Committees on Appropriations in writing 30 days 
prior to approving schedule, scope, or budget changes to any 
FFGA. Correspondence relating to such changes shall include any 
budget revisions or program changes that materially alter the 
project as originally stipulated in the FFGA, including any 
proposed change in rail car procurements.
    In addition, the Committee directs FTA to continue 
reporting monthly to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations on the status of each project with a FFGA or 
that is within two years of executing a FFGA. The Committee 
directs that monthly reporting include any requests for letters 
of no prejudice and the level of funds allocated and obligated, 
by fiscal year.
    Transit worker safety.--The Committee notes that FTA has 
not met the statutory deadline in accordance with section 3022 
of Public Law 114-94, which requires the FTA to establish 
protections from assault for transit workers. The Committee 
does not view the actions taken by FTA under 84 FR 24196 as 
sufficient to meet the requirements under that section and 
notes that Congress explicitly directed FTA to address the 
threat of transit worker assault separately in addition to its 
directives with regard to public transportation agency safety 
plans. Within 60 days of enactment of this Act, the Committee 
directs FTA to brief the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations with how it will comply with section 3022 of 
Public Law 114-94 in a manner that is consistent with 
Congressional intent.
    Priority bus corridors.--Transit agencies are responsible 
for providing bus service but the quality of such service can 
depend on actions by local governments, which control the 
right-of-way. Accommodations such as bus-boarding islands, bus-
only lanes, and transit signal priority improve the quality of 
service for bus passengers, who are more likely to be people of 
color or low-income. Relatively small investments in bus 
priority improvements can make a transformative improvement in 
access to jobs, education, and other opportunities. The 
Committee encourages FTA to work with transit agencies to 
facilitate local government cooperation and coordination on bus 
transit in order to improve the quality of service though 
priority bus corridors.

    Authorization acts provide contract authority for the 
transit formula grant programs funded from the mass transit 
account of the Highway Trust Fund. These programs include: 
urbanized area formula grants, state of good repair grants, 
formula grants for rural areas, growing states and high-density 
states, mobility for seniors and persons with disabilities, bus 
and bus facilities grants, bus testing facilities, planning 
programs, transit-oriented development, a pilot program for 
enhanced mobility, public transportation innovation, technical 
assistance and workforce development, and the National Transit 
Database. This Act sets an annual obligation limitation for 
such authority and provides liquidating cash. This account is 
the only FTA account funded from the Highway Trust Fund.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    Consistent with the levels authorized in the INVEST in 
America Act, the Committee recommends an obligation limitation 
of $12,150,348,462 for formula programs and activities. The 
Committee's recommendation also includes $13,000,000,000 in 
liquidating cash.
    Transit-oriented development (TOD).--The utilization and 
expansion of TOD is critical to revitalizing cities, reducing 
pollution and congestion, and enhancing economic opportunity. 
However, such projects require significant planning work before 
sponsors may apply for a capital investment grant. The 
Committee directs that not less than $10,000,000 be made 
available for the FTA's pilot program for TOD as authorized 
under Section 20005(b) of MAP-21 (Public Law 112-141).
    Innovation in affordable transit demonstration program.--As 
part of the research program authorized under section 5312 of 
title 49, United States Code, the Committee encourages the 
Department to fund an innovative development program to 
determine the impacts of need-based transit subsidy programs in 
areas with the worst air quality and traffic congestion in the 
country.
    Cultural and natural areas in cities.--Cities such as 
Chicago, Illinois, have a number of cultural attractions, such 
as museums, adjacent to natural areas, such as Lake Michigan. 
The Committee believes that facilitating zero-emission ``last-
mile'' transportation options to such cultural and natural 
attractions would support access to these areas as well as 
increase accessibility for underserved residents. The Committee 
encourages FTA to study solutions for zero-emission transit 
connections in cities where there are adjacent cultural and 
natural areas.
    Tribal transit fare cards.--The Committee recognizes that 
tribal communities can face unique challenges to using transit 
including lack of access or technology, and long commutes due 
to rural living. The FTA's Tribal Transit Program provides 
funding to Federally recognized tribes for capital, operating, 
planning, and administrative expenses for public transit 
projects that meet the growing needs of rural tribal 
communities. The Committee encourages the FTA to provide 
technical assistance to tribes and transit agencies that seek 
to provide transit fare collection technology, including but 
not limited to fare cards, to support access to public transit 
and transportation options for members of tribal nations.
    Transit cooperative research program (TCRP).--The Committee 
supports the critical research completed by TCRP which helps 
transit agencies nationwide solve problems and inform decisions 
about how to improve efficiencies and serve customer demands. 
Research funded by TCRP is used to solve operating problems, to 
adapt appropriate new technologies from other industries, and 
to introduce innovations into the public transportation 
industry. The Committee directs FTA to continue to support the 
program at a level commensurate with previous years.
    Agricultural worker transportation.--The Committee is 
concerned about the provision of safe, reliable transportation 
to and from worksites for farmworkers, including farmworkers 
residing in housing financed by the Department of Agriculture 
(USDA). The Committee encourages FTA, through the national 
rural transit assistance program, in coordination with USDA's 
rural housing service, to develop materials and best practices 
that can be disseminated to local government authorities, 
nonprofit organizations, and operators of public transportation 
with the goal of identifying options to establish or expand 
transit services for farmworkers.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In addition, the Coronavirus Response and Relief 
Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (Public Law 116-260) 
included $14,000,000,000 and the American Rescue Plan (Public 
Law 117-2) included $30,461,365,534 through the Transit 
Infrastructure Grants account for transit agencies to prevent, 
prepare for, and respond to COVID-19.
    Zero emission bus grants.--The Committee is pleased by the 
interest in low and no emission buses nationwide and provides 
$240,000,000 under this heading, in addition to the amounts 
provided under ``Transit Formula Grants'' for FTA to continue 
this competitive grant program authorized in the FAST Act. As 
part of the criteria for the fiscal year 2022 Notice of Funding 
Opportunity, the Committee encourages FTA to include evaluation 
criteria that considers the number of zero-emission buses the 
applicant currently has in revenue service. In addition, the 
Committee strongly encourages FTA to promote greater use of the 
innovative procurement authorities for technologically advanced 
buses that were established by section 3019 of the FAST Act. 
The Committee encourages FTA to provide technical assistance to 
states in developing state schedules that are consistent with 
Federal law and making purchases from other state schedules 
that comply with Federal requirements. FTA may use webinars and 
stakeholder events to make transit agencies more aware that 
they may purchase from state schedules that comply with Federal 
law regardless of location.
    Transit vehicle innovation deployment centers (TVIDC).--The 
Committee remains keenly interested in the TVIDC program which 
provides critical research and technical assistance to advance 
innovation in transit. The bill provides $5,000,000 for two 
centers to provide technical assistance and to coordinate the 
bus industry transition to zero-emission buses. As a result, 
the Committee directs FTA to provide ongoing support to TVIDC. 
The Committee directs FTA to work with TVIDC to focus on 
transit's transition to zero emission bus fleets. In that role, 
TVIDC shall continue to work with the transit industry to 
establish workforce development plans that support the new 
technologies; develop plans to expand transit bus testing to 
include low and no emission component testing; establish 
procedures to efficiently divide testing responsibilities 
amongst the three FTA bus testing centers; establish testing 
protocols and priorities while also making recommendations 
about how to best disseminate results; support FTA's research 
priorities to support the transition to zero emission fleets, 
including automation and fueling technologies; and continue to 
work with transit and power utilities to establish standards 
for bus fleet fueling.
    Bus and bus facilities.--The Committee supports the FAST 
Act's inclusion of competitive grants in the buses and bus 
facilities grant program and encourages FTA to follow the 
guidance set forth in the FAST Act when developing selection 
criteria for the program. Consistent with 49 U.S.C. 5339(b), 
the age and condition of buses, bus fleets, related equipment, 
and bus-related facilities should be the primary components of 
selection criteria. The amounts provided under this heading are 
in addition to the amounts provided under ``Transit Formula 
Grants''.
    Transformative transit system research.--The Committee 
recognizes that transit systems must transform and adapt to 
better serve the needs of riders and communities. Past 
investments in innovation have resulted in progress in payment 
and trip planning technologies as well as mobility on demand, 
including the integration of micro-mobility. Funds provided 
under this heading are intended to build on and expand from 
such technologies. To that end, the Committee believes that 
grantees that have received mobility on demand or accelerating 
innovative mobility grants under section 5312 of title 49, 
United States Code, are well positioned to apply for these 
grants. The Committee directs FTA to consider including the 
reduction or elimination of fares, the improvement of air 
quality, and the integration of micro mobility options such as 
bike or scooter sharing as part of the Notice of Funding 
Opportunity.
    Air quality and traffic congestion.--The Committee supports 
the Administration's emphasis on sustainability, climate 
resilience, and equity, and encourages the Secretary and the 
FTA to prioritize funding for transit projects in areas that 
suffer from the worst air quality and traffic congestion in the 
country.

                   TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE AND TRAINING

 
 
 
Appropriation, fiscal year 2021.......................        $7,500,000

    The FAST Act authorizes FTA to provide technical assistance 
under section 5314 of title 49, United States Code, for human 
resource and training activities, and workforce development 
programs.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $7,500,000 for technical 
assistance and training authorized under section 5314(a)(2) of 
title 49, United States Code to remain available until 
expended. In addition to the amounts provided under this 
heading for activities under section 5314 of title 49, United 
States Code, $9,000,000 is provided through the obligation 
limitation under the heading ``Transit Formula Grants''.
    Workforce development and standards-based training.--The 
Committee directs that not less than $2,500,000, to remain 
available until expended, shall be for a cooperative agreement 
through which FTA assists transit recipients with frontline 
workforce development and standards-based training in 
maintenance and operations. The cooperative agreement should be 
with a national nonprofit organization with a demonstrated 
capacity to develop and provide such programs though labor 
management partnerships and apprenticeships.
    Mobility for people with disabilities and older adults.--Of 
the total amounts made available for activities under section 
5314 of title 49, United States Code, the Committee directs the 
Department to continue to fund agreements that support mobility 
for people with disabilities and older adults at a level 
commensurate with the amounts dedicated to such agreements in 
each year since 2018.
    Small-urban, rural and tribal transit providers.--The 
Committee directs that not less than $1,500,000 made available 
under this heading shall be for a cooperative agreement through 
which FTA assists small-urban, rural and tribal transit 
providers and planning agencies with providing technical 
assistance to deploy new forms of transit service, providing 
metropolitan mobility in urban areas that historically have not 
received FTA formula grants, promoting regionalized approaches 
to transit and mobility, and assisting rural and urban areas 
with changing mode-share strategies.
    Transportation Research Board (TRB).--The Committee 
believes that FTA's active participation in and support of TRB 
are crucial to the successful completion and dissemination of 
transit research. Of the amounts provided under this heading, 
the Committee provides $250,000 for FTA's contribution as a 
sponsor of the TRB, which includes support for the annual TRB 
Conference and access to all TRB publications and online 
resources for all FTA employees.

    The Committee directs FTA to continue to administer the 
program under current guidance and to proactively work with 
applicants and grantees to facilitate projects moving through 
the capital investment grant pipeline and towards a FFGA. FTA 
is directed to evaluate, rate, and recommend projects for 
funding, and subsequently award grants to projects that meet 
the statutory requirements of 49 U.S.C. 5309. The Committee 
directs FTA to enter into FFGAs in which the capital investment 
grant contribution is not less than 40 percent of the net 
project cost, except at the direct request of the project 
sponsor.
    The Committee encourages FTA to fully consider small starts 
projects that would include stations that serve one or more 
Opportunity Zones, as defined in Public Law 115-97. The 
Committee further directs that FTA may provide funding for 
projects without a FFGA.
    Funding is provided for projects that currently have 
executed grant agreements, and for projects that have met the 
statutory requirements of 49 U.S.C. 5309 and that are 
anticipating grant agreements in fiscal year 2022. Funding is 
provided consistent with the budget request for fiscal year 
2022.
    The Committee directs FTA to continue to update the House 
and Senate Committees on Appropriations, monthly, on the status 
of projects that are in the current capital investment grant 
funding pipeline. The Committee also directs the Secretary to 
provide notice to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations not less than 90 days prior to altering or 
rescinding any rule, circular or guidance relating to the 
evaluation, rating, and approval process pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 
5309.
    The Committee directs the Secretary to submit the fiscal 
year 2023 annual report on funding recommendations as required 
by 49 U.S.C. 5309, to maintain the Federal funding commitments 
for all existing grant agreements, and to identify all projects 
with a medium or higher rating that anticipate requesting a 
grant agreement in fiscal year 2023. As part of the fiscal year 
2023 budget request, the Committee directs the Secretary to 
submit a list of projects to which it expects to award an FFGA 
during the budget year.
    Stakeholder engagement.--The Committee remains concerned 
that industry stakeholders have not been consulted on past 
changes to FTA policies, especially within the capital 
investment grant program. Project sponsors require a level of 
certainty and understanding of program parameters when 
completing lengthy and complicated project plans. The Committee 
directs FTA to engage with industry stakeholders before making 
significant changes to the program's process or criteria. In 
addition, the Committee reemphasizes current law and directs 
FTA to issue policy guidance each time significant changes are 
made to such processes and criteria.
    Phoenix, Arizona.--The Committee is aware that Valley 
Metro's Northwest Extension project was not awarded a grant in 
the American Rescue Plan (Public Law 117-2) because it had not 
yet signed a FFGA. Additionally, the Committee recognizes that 
this project was significantly impacted by FTA's 2018 changes 
with respect to risk assessments and estimates of cost 
probability thresholds. As a result of these dual adverse 
impacts on the Northwest Extensions project, the Committee 
encourages FTA to work with Valley Metro to assist the project 
using all existing flexibilities, including, but not limited 
to, deferred local share.
    Sacramento, California.--The Committee encourages all 
parties to the downtown streetcar project in Sacramento, 
California, including, but not limited to, the cities of 
Sacramento and West Sacramento and FTA to work proactively and 
expeditiously towards a project agreement and directs FTA to 
extend the availability of allocated funds for one year in 
order to facilitate the completion of an agreement.
    Equity and the Federal share.--The Committee remains 
concerned that areas with historic transportation inequities 
may need a relatively larger federal share of project costs 
than areas with fewer historical inequities. The Committee 
encourages FTA to consider the maximum-federal cost share for 
such communities, especially when proposed projects will 
alleviate road congestion, facilitate sea-level resiliency, and 
mitigate impacts of climate change or reduce emissions.
    Locally Preferred Alternative.--The Committee recognizes 
the regional importance of the Riverview Modern Streetcar 
project, a 12-mile planned transportation connection between 
neighborhoods and anchor destinations and employers in downtown 
Saint Paul, Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and the 
Mall of America. This planned modern streetcar line is planned 
to run generally along State Highway 5 (West 7th Street) and 
will provide a higher capacity with frequent service in an area 
with growing population and employment, and a transit reliant 
population that is lacking accessible and dependable service. 
Modern streetcar can also be an incentive for reinvestment and 
economic development. Modern streetcar, running generally along 
State Highway 5 (West 7th Street), was chosen as the Locally 
Preferred alternative by the Riverview Policy Advisory 
Committee in December 2017 after analyzing various routes and 
transit modes for more than three years. The Committee 
encourages the Federal Transit Administration to continue 
working with the regional MPO to advance Riverview Modern 
Streetcar project through its next planning stage, the 
Engineering and Pre-Environmental Phase of work, which began in 
October 2020 and will continue through 2023.

    This program provides grants to the Washington Metropolitan 
Area Transit Authority (WMATA) for capital investment and asset 
rehabilitation activities as authorized by the Passenger Rail 
Investment and Improvement Act (PRIIA) of 2008 (P.L. 110-432). 
These funds, along with funds provided under FTA's core formula 
programs, will help return the existing system to a state of 
good repair and improve the safety and reliability of service. 
Federal funds provided under this account are matched dollar-
for-dollar by Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia 
in equal proportions.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee provides $150,000,000 for WMATA for critical 
capital and safety improvements. PRIIA created a successful 
Federal-state partnership under which the three WMATA 
jurisdictions collectively match this funding with another 
$150,000,000 each year. This funding will maintain the Federal 
government's commitment to a safe and reliable public 
transportation system for the National Capital Region.
    Cybersecurity.--The Committee remains concerned that as 
systems for controlling various modes of transportation become 
more complex, the security of transportation could be 
compromised. As a result, the Committee again includes 
direction that WMATA work with the Secretary of Transportation 
and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency within 
the Department of Homeland Security to ensure that the agency 
is complying with best practices for the procurement of 
Industrial Control Systems. The Committee directs WMATA to 
include analysis of Internet of Things (IoT) and unknown and 
unauthorized devices in its cybersecurity plan.

       ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISIONS--FEDERAL TRANSIT ADMINISTRATION

                        (INCLUDING RESCISSIONS)

    Section 160 exempts previously made transit obligations 
from limitations on obligations.

    The Great Lakes St. Lawrence Seaway navigation system is a 
binational, 15-lock system jointly operated by the Great Lakes 
St. Lawrence Seaway Development Corporation (GLS) and its 
Canadian counterpart, the Canadian St. Lawrence Seaway 
Management Corporation. The GLS was established by the St. 
Lawrence Seaway Act of 1954, is a wholly owned government 
corporation, and an operating administration of the Department 
of Transportation. The GLS is charged with operating and 
maintaining the U.S. portion of the Great Lakes St. Lawrence 
Seaway, which includes the two U.S. locks in Massena, New York, 
vessel traffic control in portions of the St. Lawrence River 
and Lake Ontario, and trade development functions to enhance 
the utilization of the Great Lakes St. Lawrence Seaway. The 
Water Resources Development Act of 1986 (P.L. 99-662) 
authorized the harbor maintenance trust fund as a source of 
appropriations for the GLS operations and maintenance. 
Additionally, the GLS generates non-Federal revenues which can 
be used for operations and maintenance.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation provides $40,000,000 to fund 
the operations, maintenance, and capital infrastructure 
activities of the GLS. Of the total funds provided, not more 
than $14,500,000 is for the seaway infrastructure program. In 
addition, the Act allows the GLS to use $1,500,000 in prior 
year unobligated balances for operations and maintenance of the 
seaway international bridge.
    Market development and promotion.--The Committee provides 
$4,000,000 for market development and promotion of the Great 
Lakes St. Lawrence Seaway navigation system, to be carried out 
in cooperation with system stakeholders. These resources may be 
used to enhance and expand existing marketing efforts, conduct 
market research, and support marketing initiatives and trade 
promotion with the goal of growing the volume of waterborne 
commerce and passenger cruise activity on the system. The 
Committee understands that the GLS is developing a strategic 
plan for the $4,000,000 provided for trade and economic 
development activities in the Further Consolidated 
Appropriations Act, 2020 (P.L. 116-94) and the Consolidated 
Appropriations Act, 2021 (P.L. 116-260) and has taken several 
steps to utilize this funding in support of the system, 
including establishing a dedicated Office of Trade and Economic 
Development. The Committee notes with disappointment that the 
GLS has not completed the strategic plan as required by House 
Report 116-452 and directs the GLS to deliver the strategic 
plan to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations no 
later than 30 days after enactment of this Act. Further, the 
Committee directs the GLS to provide regular updates to the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on its progress 
implementing the strategic plan and to continue to coordinate 
with system stakeholders.
    Harmonization of navigation season.--On March 22, 2021, the 
GLS and the Canadian St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation 
marked the opening of the Great Lakes St. Lawrence Seaway's 
63rd navigation season. The Committee notes that the annual 
opening and closure dates of the Great Lakes St. Lawrence 
Seaway are not synchronized with other assets on the Great 
Lakes navigation system such as the soo locks, which are 
operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). The 
Committee directs the GLS, in consultation with the USACE, to 
identify the opportunities and challenges with coordinating the 
opening and closing of the Great Lakes St. Lawrence Seaway and 
soo locks. The Committee directs the GLS to brief the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations no later than 180 days 
after enactment of this Act on its findings.

                        Maritime Administration

    The Maritime Administration (MARAD) is responsible for 
strengthening the U.S. maritime industry in support of the 
nation's security and economic needs, as authorized by the 
Merchant Marine Act of 1936 (P.L. 74-835). MARAD's mission is 
to promote the development and maintenance of a U.S. merchant 
marine sufficient to carry the nation's waterborne domestic 
commerce and a substantial portion of its waterborne foreign 
commerce, and to serve as a naval and military auxiliary in 
time of war or national emergency.
    MARAD, working with the Department of Defense (DOD), 
provides a seamless, time-phased transition from peacetime to 
wartime operations, while balancing the defense and commercial 
elements of the maritime transportation system. MARAD also 
manages the maritime security program, the cable security fleet 
program, the voluntary intermodal sealift agreement program, 
and the ready reserve force, which assures DOD access to 
commercial and strategic sealift and associated intermodal 
capability. Further, MARAD's education and training programs 
through the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy and six state maritime 
academies help develop skilled U.S. merchant marine officers.

    MARAD reorganization.--The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 
2021 (P.L. 116-260) approved a non-budgetary organizational 
realignment for two new offices within the MARAD headquarters 
operations program activity as proposed in the fiscal year 2021 
budget request. The Committee notes that MARAD has paused the 
implementation of these changes to MARAD's organizational 
structure to enable departmental and MARAD leadership to review 
and assess the realignment. The Committee directs MARAD to 
brief the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations upon 
the completion of this review. Should the review result in 
MARAD not completing the realignment as previously approved or 
other organizational changes within the MARAD headquarters 
operations program activity, the Committee directs MARAD to 
request approval from the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations through the process outlined in section 405 of 
this Act.
    MARAD staffing.--The Committee continues to require MARAD 
to submit to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations 
information on the number of vacancies at MARAD headquarters 
and regional offices, and the duties associated with each 
vacancy concurrent with the fiscal year 2023 budget 
justification.
    Emissions reduction.--The U.S. Environmental Protection 
Agency estimates that 39,000,000 people across the country live 
in close proximity to ports. These communities are particularly 
susceptible to air pollution from mobile emission sources in 
and around ports, including trucks, locomotives, harbor craft 
like tugboats, ocean going vessels, and non-road vehicles, 
engines, and equipment used in support of port operations. The 
Committee supports the Department's efforts to mitigate and 
reduce the environmental impacts of the maritime sector through 
the maritime environmental and technical assistance (META), 
America's marine highway, and port infrastructure development 
programs. To assist the META program in testing, evaluating, 
and demonstrating alternative energy technologies, alternative 
and renewable fuels, energy conservation technologies or 
methods, and more, the Committee provides not less than 
$4,000,000 for activities that reduce vessel and port air 
emissions. In addition, the Act requires the Secretary to give 
preference to projects that reduce air emissions and vehicle 
miles traveled when awarding grants through the America's 
marine highway program and expands project eligibility for the 
port infrastructure development program for activities that 
reduce port air emissions and environmental impacts.
    Sexual assault and sexual harassment at USMMA.--The USMMA 
is required to conduct a survey on sexual harassment and sexual 
assault every other year. The most recent survey was conducted 
with students in 2018 and the Final 2017-2018 Academic Year 
Biennial Survey and Report on Sexual Harassment and Sexual 
Assault at the United States Merchant Marine Academy was 
transmitted to Congress on December 23, 2020. The final report 
found that 10.6 percent of women and 1.4 percent of men 
experienced at least one incident of unwanted sexual contact, 
which represents a 7.8 percent decrease for women and a 0.6 
percent increase for men when compared to the 2015-2016 
academic year. The Committee understands that the next survey 
scheduled for March 2020 for the 2019-2020 academic year was 
not conducted due to the COVID-19 pandemic and that a mixed 
methods study will be conducted in 2021 through a virtual 
survey and virtual focus group sessions for the 2020-2021 
academic year. The Committee directs MARAD to work with the 
USMMA to ensure the preliminary and final report for the 2020-
2021 academic year are completed in a timely manner as these 
surveys and accompanying analysis are important tools in 
determining the effectiveness of the policies, training, and 
procedures the USMMA has put into place to address sexual 
harassment and sexual assault and to improve the culture at the 
USMMA. Further, the Committee directs the USMMA to continue to 
fully staff the Sexual Assault/Sexual Harassment Prevention and 
Response Office.
    According to the final report for the 2017-2018 academic 
year the majority of unwanted sexual contact experiences for 
women, at 66 percent, and men, at 42 percent, took place on the 
USMMA campus. These findings underscore the importance of the 
Department complying with the Further Consolidated 
Appropriations Act, 2020 (P.L. 116-94) and John S. McCain 
National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019 (P.L. 
115-232). P.L. 116-94 directs the Secretary to seek concurrent 
criminal jurisdiction over the USMMA campus, as authorized by 
section 3506 of P.L. 115-232, which would allow local law 
enforcement to prosecute sexual assault incidents that occur on 
the USMMA campus. The Committee understands that MARAD is 
working to implement this direction, including engaging with 
local authorities and coordinating with other Federal agencies, 
and plans to engage the USMMA community. The Committee directs 
MARAD to continue these efforts and to brief the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations on its progress on a 
quarterly basis until the Department files a notice of 
jurisdictional relinquishment in order to establish concurrent 
criminal jurisdiction with the State of New York.
    Finally, the Committee notes that while the final report 
for the 2017-2018 academic year found a reduction in the 
unwanted sexual contact rate experienced by women on sea duty, 
the sea year experience continues to be a source of unwanted 
sexual contact. Of the women who experienced unwanted sexual 
contact, 24 percent indicated that it occurred during maritime 
duty and 23 percent indicated that it occurred during the 
summer experience, training, or sea duty. Further, two of the 
seven unrestricted reports of sexual assault made to the USMMA 
in the 2017-2018 academic year occurred while at sea and all 
three unrestricted reports of sexual assault in the 2018-2019 
academic year occurred while at sea. MARAD's shipboard climate 
compliance team (SCCT) works to ensure commercial shipping 
companies provide a safe environment for students during sea 
year. Companies must meet the conditions outlined in the SCCT 
sea year eligibility requirements document to be sea year 
eligible, the MARAD SCCT conducts an annual reaffirmation 
process with companies to certify continued compliance with 
crew training, policy requirements, and student onboarding 
processes, and before COVID-19 academy training representatives 
conducted ship visits. The Committee was disappointed to learn 
that the MARAD SCCT does not have procedures in place to 
reevaluate a company's compliance when a restricted or 
unrestricted report of sexual assault or sexual harassment is 
made to the USMMA by students while at sea. Considering the 
continued experiences of students during sea year, the 
Committee directs MARAD to review current requirements for sea 
year eligibility to determine whether additional steps should 
be taken by companies when a restricted or unrestricted report 
of sexual assault or sexual harassment is made by students 
while at sea. As the final report for the 2017-2018 academic 
year highlights, the USMMA must continue to focus on ``working 
with the maritime industry to eliminate hazing, bullying, 
coercion, sexual assault and sexual harassment from the 
shipboard living and working environment.''
    USMMA long range planning strategy (LRPS).--The Committee 
understands that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers completed a 
report for the USMMA which is being used to inform a master 
installation plan, now known as the USMMA LRPS, to modernize 
the USMMA's 1940s era academic and training facilities. The 
USMMA LRPS is expected to identify near- and long-term new 
facilities needed for the USMMA to remain a premier academic 
and maritime training institution. The Committee notes that the 
capital improvement program (CIP) has approximately $73,000,000 
in prior year unobligated balances as of June 2021. While this 
funding has been assigned to nearly 20 CIP projects, the 
Committee understands that the USMMA may reprioritize current 
CIP projects and realign the unobligated balances based on the 
results of the USMMA LRPS. The Committee eagerly awaits the 
completion of the USMMA LRPS, which is expected to be in fiscal 
year 2021, and directs MARAD to brief the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations upon its completion. The Committee 
provides $5,000,000 through the CIP to assist the USMMA in its 
initial implementation of the USMMA LRPS in fiscal year 2022, 
which could include planning, design, engineering, and 
construction activities. Further, should the USMMA determine 
that the USMMA LRPS requires the realignment of unobligated 
balances in the CIP, the Committee directs MARAD to request 
approval from the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations 
through the process outlined in section 405 of this Act.
    Shipyards.--Due to the lack of available private shipyard 
facilities and the extended time to relocate vessels and 
assets, there is a backlog of maintenance, repair, and 
modernization projects which may impair maritime commerce and 
national security. To avoid displacement, increased costs, and 
impacts on East Coast and West Coast based vessels and 
personnel, the Committee encourages MARAD to continue utilizing 
privately owned shipyards for national defense reserve fleet 
and ready reserve force maintenance, repair, and modernization. 
The Committee also encourages MARAD to compile a list of 
available shipyards and to share such a list with other 
government partners.
    Domestic maritime centers of excellence (DMCOEs).--Section 
3507 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 
2018 (P.L. 115-91) authorized the Department to designate 
community and technical colleges or maritime training centers 
as DMCOEs and to enter into cooperative agreements with DMCOEs 
to support maritime workforce training and education. The 
Committee notes that MARAD published a final policy (85 FR 
13231) for this voluntary program in March 2020, began 
accepting applications from eligible and qualified institutions 
for DMCOE designations in October 2020, and announced the 
selection of the first DMCOEs in May 2021, designating 27 
centers of excellence for domestic maritime workforce training 
and education. MARAD may use up to $2,000,000 of the funding 
provided to the MARAD headquarters operations program activity 
under this heading to assist DMCOEs, who have entered into a 
cooperative agreement with MARAD, with activities outlined in 
the final policy (85 FR 13231).
    America's supply chains.--The Committee notes that 
executive order 14017 issued on February 24, 2021 initiated a 
comprehensive review of U.S. supply chains and directed Federal 
departments and agencies to identify opportunities to enhance 
the resilience and security of supply chains. As required by 
the executive order, DOT is conducting a review on supply 
chains for the transportation industrial base. As part of this 
review, DOT as well as the Departments of Defense, Health and 
Human Services, Commerce, Homeland Security, Energy, and 
Agriculture are to assess the role of transportation systems in 
supporting supply chains and the risks associated with those 
transportation systems. The Committee understands that DOT 
intends to review the transportation systems which support the 
export and import of goods through a complex system of ocean 
carriers, ports, terminal operators, freight rail, trucking, 
and more; assess the primary causes of and risks associated 
with congestion, delays, and bottlenecks within these 
transportation systems; consult with stakeholders; and provide 
policy recommendations, including executive, legislative, or 
regulatory changes. The Committee directs DOT to submit the 
report required by executive order 14017 to the House and

    National security multi-mission vessel (NSMV) program.--The 
NSMV will serve as a critical educational and training platform 
for the next generation of mariners, replacing five aging SMA 
training vessels while supporting Federal response capabilities 
for humanitarian assistance and disaster relief. In May 2019, 
MARAD selected a vessel construction manager to use commercial 
practices to contract with a single shipyard to construct up to 
five NSMVs according to MARAD specified designs, conduct 
oversight and management of vessel construction, and deliver 
the vessels to MARAD. In April 2020, the vessel construction 
manager selected a shipyard and MARAD authorized construction 
of the first two vessels. Following the enactment of the 
Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (P.L. 116-260), MARAD 
authorized construction of the third and fourth vessels. The 
Committee provides $315,600,000 for the NSMV program to fully 
fund the fifth and final vessel.
    The Committee notes that a March 2021 audit conducted by 
the DOT OIG found that MARAD's overall management of the NSMV 
program risks is inadequate; MARAD relies upon the periodic 
risk assessments and quarterly updates from the vessel 
construction manager; and MARAD had not reviewed complete 
versions of three required oversight plans from the vessel 
construction manager that detail plans for its management and 
oversight of NSMV design and construction. The DOT OIG 
recommended that MARAD document and implement a risk-based 
management process to analyze program risk, which includes 
monitoring, tracking, and updating risks over the life of the 
program, and to obtain, review, and approve complete versions 
of the three oversight plans before the start of full-scale 
vessel construction. The Committee is pleased that MARAD has 
taken these recommendations seriously and has implemented both 
recommendations. Full-scale vessel construction of the first 
NSMV began in April 2021, and it is scheduled for delivery in 
April 2023. The Committee directs MARAD to conduct vigorous 
oversight of the vessel construction manager and to follow the 
risk-based management process developed as a result of the DOT 
OIG audit in order to ensure the NSMVs are delivered on budget 
and on time. Further, the Committee directs MARAD to continue 
to provide briefings to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations on the status of the NSMV program on a quarterly 
basis, and to provide immediate notification of any substantial 
risks to the construction schedule or cost.
    The Committee understands that MARAD is working with the 
SMAs to ensure their facilities are properly prepared for the 
delivery and use of the NSMVs, including conducting assessments 
of the SMAs' shore-side infrastructure. The Committee 
recognizes that upgrading shore-side infrastructure, such as 
piers, mooring improvements, dredging, and connections to power 
and other utilities, comes at a significant cost to SMAs. 
Therefore, the Committee provides $5,000,000 for the NSMV 
program to assist SMAs in making such shore-side infrastructure 
improvements.

                     ASSISTANCE TO SMALL SHIPYARDS

 
 
 
Appropriation, fiscal year 2021.......................       $20,000,000

    As authorized under section 54101 of title 46, United 
States Code, the assistance to small shipyards program provides 
grants, loans, and loan guarantees to small shipyards for 
capital improvements and maritime training programs.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation provides $20,000,000 for the 
assistance to small shipyards program.

                             SHIP DISPOSAL

 
 
 
Appropriation, fiscal year 2021.......................        $4,200,000
Budget request, fiscal year 2022......................        10,000,000
Recommended in the bill...............................         7,508,000

    Budget request, fiscal year 2022..................        -2,492,000
 

    MARAD serves as the Federal government's disposal agent for 
government-owned merchant vessels weighing 1,500 gross tons or 
more. The ship disposal program provides resources to dispose 
of obsolete merchant-type vessels in the national defense 
reserve fleet. These vessels pose a significant environmental 
threat due to the presence of hazardous substances such as 
asbestos and solid and liquid polychlorinated biphenyls.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation provides $7,508,000 for the 
ship disposal program. Of the total funds provided, $3,000,000 
is for maintaining the NS Savannah in protective storage in 
accordance with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's license 
requirements while it is being disposed.
    National maritime heritage grants program.--When MARAD 
completes the sale of obsolete vessels through the ship 
disposal program, the receipts from the sales are deposited 
into the vessel operations revolving fund (VORF). MARAD 
distributes funding from the VORF according to the authorized 
purposes and allocations in section 308704 of title 54, United 
States Code, when vessel sale proceeds are no longer subject to 
claims and the recycling contract is closed. The National 
Maritime Heritage Act established the national maritime 
heritage grants program, which receives a portion of such 
funds. The Committee understands that in recent years the 
proceeds from such sales have been insufficient for the 
National Park Service (NPS) to conduct an annual grant cycle 
for the national maritime heritage grants program. The 
Committee further notes that the NPS is expected to accept 
proposals for the next round of grants in 2021. The Committee 
directs MARAD to continue to work with the NPS to ensure that 
the portion of the VORF allocated for the national maritime 
heritage grants program under section 308704(b)(1)(A) of title 
54, United States Code, is distributed in a timely fashion.

reconstruction, or reconditioning of vessels by the U.S. 
shipbuilding industry and for modernization of U.S. shipyards.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation provides $3,019,000 for the 
administrative expenses of the maritime guaranteed loan 
program.

                PORT INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

 
 
 
Appropriation, fiscal year 2021.......................      $230,000,000
Budget request, fiscal year 2022......................       230,000,000
Recommended in the bill...............................       300,000,000

    Appropriation, fiscal year 2021...................       +70,000,000
    Budget request, fiscal year 2022..................       +70,000,000
 

    The port infrastructure development program is authorized 
by section 50302(c) of title 46, United States Code, to improve 
port facilities and the transportation networks and flows of 
cargo in, around, and through ports. Port authorities, states 
and local governments, tribal governments, publicly chartered 
entities, and special purpose districts with a transportation 
function are eligible to apply for this competitive grant 
program.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation provides $300,000,000 for the 
port infrastructure development program. The Act expands 
project eligibility for activities that reduce port air 
emissions and environmental impacts and improve natural 
disaster preparedness and resiliency. The Committee directs 
MARAD to follow the eligibility requirements enumerated in this 
Act.

           ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISION--MARITIME ADMINISTRATION

    Section 170 authorizes MARAD to furnish utilities and 
services and to make necessary repairs in connection with any 
lease, contract, or occupancy involving government property 
under control of MARAD and allows payments received to be 
credited to the treasury and to remain available until 
expended.

         Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration

    The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration 
(PHMSA) administers nationwide safety programs designed to 
protect the public and the environment from risks inherent in 
the commercial transportation of hazardous materials by 
pipeline, air, rail, vessel, and highway. Many of these 
materials are essential to the national economy. PHMSA's 
highest priority is safety, and it uses safety management 
principles and security assessments to promote the safe 
transport of hazardous materials and the security of the 
nation's pipelines, underground natural gas storage facilities, 
and liquefied natural gas facilities.

                          OPERATIONAL EXPENSES

 
 
 
Appropriation, fiscal year 2021.......................       $28,715,000
Budget request, fiscal year 2022......................        29,100,000
Recommended in the bill...............................        29,100,000
Bill compared with:
    Appropriation, fiscal year 2021...................          +385,000
    Budget request, fiscal year 2022..................             - - -
 

    This account funds the operational costs of PHMSA, 
including the agency-wide functions of administration, 
management, policy development, legal counsel, budget, 
financial management, civil rights, human resources, 
acquisition services, information technology, and governmental 
and public affairs.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation provides $29,100,000 for the 
operational expenses account. Of the total funds provided, 
$2,000,000 shall be for pipeline safety information grants to 
communities as authorized by section 60130 of title 49, Untied 
States Code, and $2,500,000 shall be for emergency response 
grants as authorized by section 60125(b) of title 49, United 
States Code.
    Pipeline safety rulemaking.--Congress required PHMSA to 
establish regulations on the use of automatic and remote-
controlled shut-off valves on transmission pipeline facilities 
and hazardous liquid pipeline facilities leak detection systems 
in the Pipeline Safety, Regulatory Certainty, and Job Creation 
Act of 2011 (P.L. 112-90). PHMSA issued a notice of proposed 
rulemaking on Pipeline Safety: Valve Installation and Minimum 
Rupture Detection Standards on February 6, 2020 to address 
these overdue Congressional mandates. The public comment period 
closed on April 6, 2020 and PHMSA facilitated meetings with the 
gas pipeline advisory committee and the liquid pipeline 
advisory committee in July 2020. While the Committee 
understands PHMSA is working diligently to consider comments 
and complete a final rule, the Committee is disappointed that 
PHMSA did not issue a final rule by December 20, 2020 as 
required by the Further Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020 
(P.L. 116-94) and subsequently did not issue a final rule by 
June 25, 2021 after Congress provided the agency more time to 
complete its work in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 
(P.L. 116-260). Therefore, the Act directs PHMSA to issue a 
final rule on this matter not later than 90 days after the date 
of enactment of this Act and reduces the funding provided to 
the operational expenses account by $5,000 per day for each day 
that a final rule has not been issued following the expiration 
of such 90 day period.

                       HAZARDOUS MATERIALS SAFETY

 
 
 
Appropriation, fiscal year 2021.......................       $62,000,000
Budget request, fiscal year 2022......................        69,029,000
Recommended in the bill...............................        66,391,500
Bill compared with:
    Appropriation, fiscal year 2021...................        +4,391,500
    Budget request, fiscal year 2022..................        -2,637,500
 

    The hazardous materials safety account advances the safe 
and secure transport of hazardous materials in commerce by air, 
highway, rail, and vessel. PHMSA evaluates hazardous materials 
safety risks, develops and enforces regulations for 
transporting hazardous materials, educates shippers and 
carriers, investigates hazardous materials incidents and 
failures, conducts research, and provides grants to improve 
emergency response to transportation incidents involving 
hazardous materials.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation provides $66,391,500 for the 
hazardous materials safety account. Of the total funds 
provided, $1,000,000 shall be for community safety grants as 
authorized by section 5107(i) of title 49, United States Code, 
and $2,500,000 shall be for the state hazardous materials 
safety inspection program. In addition, this funding level 
supports PHMSA's existing hazardous materials safety program, 
including the safe transportation of energy products.
    Staffing and outreach activities.--The Committee 
recommendation provides funding for a total of 208 full-time 
positions to support the Office of Hazardous Materials Safety, 
which consists of 78 inspectors and 130 safety program, 
scientific, and safety standard development professionals. 
PHMSA's hazardous materials safety assistance team (HMSAT) 
conducts outreach, technical assistance, communication, and 
education on hazardous materials regulations and compliance 
with local and state governments, as well as businesses. While 
the Committee appreciates PHMSA's proposal to increase its 
outreach capabilities to assist more communities and improve 
hazardous materials transportation planning and emergency 
response plans, increasing the HMSAT by 400 percent from five 
to 25 full-time positions in one fiscal year is too ambitious. 
The Committee recommendation provides $537,500 to add five 
full-time positions to the HMSAT, which would result in 10 
full-time positions on the HMSAT, two in each of PHMSA's five 
regional offices.
    Liquefied natural gas (LNG) by rail.--The Committee remains 
concerned that the transportation of LNG by rail poses new and 
different risks to the public, environment, and property. The 
Committee is pleased that PHMSA has, in accordance with the 
directives in executive order 13990 issued on January 20, 2021, 
reviewed the final rule, which was issued on July 24, 2020 and 
allowed the bulk transportation of LNG by rail in DOT-113 rail 
tank cars. The Committee understands that PHMSA intends to 
issue a notice of proposed rulemaking to suspend the 
authorization for the transportation of LNG by rail pending 
completion of a companion rulemaking. The companion rulemaking 
PHMSA intends to issue would amend the hazardous materials 
regulations governing the transportation of LNG in rail tank 
cars in order to incorporate ongoing research efforts, 
collaboration with other agencies, and external technical 
experts; respond to executive order 13990; and provide 
additional opportunities for stakeholder input.
    The Committee further understands that PHMSA and FRA 
continue to actively conduct research and development projects 
relating to the transportation of LNG in rail tank cars and the 
use of LNG as a fuel for locomotives. These activities are 
expected to continue through July 2023 and additional research 
projects may be initiated in fiscal year 2022. The Committee 
supports PHMSA and FRA continuing its work on these ongoing and 
future research projects.
    In addition, PHMSA entered into an agreement in April 2020 
with the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and 
Medicine to conduct an independent study by an expert panel of 
the Transportation Research Board (TRB) on the transportation 
of LNG in rail tank cars as required by the Further 
Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020 (P.L. 116-94). TRB is 
conducting this study in two phases. In phase 1, the expert 
panel reviewed completed, ongoing, and planned PHMSA and FRA 
research, testing, and data analysis tasks relating to the 
transportation of LNG in rail tank cars, releasing a report on 
June 14, 2021. The expert panel found that while the PHMSA-FRA 
work is comprehensive as planned, there are areas ``where more 
complete treatment is warranted, and where the basis for 
choices about the structure and execution of tasks . . . has 
not been made sufficiently clear to assess the applicability 
and validity of the results.'' Further, the expert panel made 
recommendations on planned tasks related to LNG safety that 
have not been completed, including changes to portable tank 
fire testing, updates to modeling for worst-case scenarios, and 
adding loading and unloading operations and train assembly and 
classification activities to the assessment of the risk of LNG 
by rail. The Committee directs PHMSA to implement the expert 
panel's recommendations for the planned or ongoing work and to 
report to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on 
any limitations which would prevent PHMSA from implementing 
such recommendations. Further, the Committee directs PHMSA to 
establish a framework for integrating and reporting the results 
of the LNG by rail tasks. On June 7, 2021, TRB initiated phase 
2 in which the expert panel will gather and analyze information 
relating to the transportation of LNG in rail tank cars, 
including information on methods used to transport LNG by other 
modes, train operational controls, and emergency response 
planning. The Committee understands that the transportation of 
LNG in rail tank cars is likely to occur in unit trains and 
encourages the TRB expert panel to include a safety analysis of 
such bulk shipments as part of its phase 2 work. The Committee 
reminds PHMSA of the requirement in House Report 116-452 to 
brief the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations no 
later than 30 days after TRB completes phase 2 on actions the 
agency plans to take in response to the results of phase 2. The 
Committee continues to assert that the ongoing research 
projects and TRB study should inform the Department's decision-
making and rulemaking on this matter.
    Safe transportation of energy products.--The Committee 
continues to closely monitor PHMSA's efforts to improve the 
safety of transporting class 3 flammable liquids, including 
crude oil and ethanol, by rail. The Fixing America's Surface 
Transportation (FAST) Act (P.L. 114-94) established a schedule 
to phase-out certain rail tank cars used to transport class 3 
flammable liquids. In September 2020, the Bureau of 
Transportation Statistics reported that 48 percent of all rail 
tank cars transporting class 3 flammable liquids in 2019 met 
the new safety requirements (DOT-117s), which is a 14 percent 
increase over 2018. In comparison, in 2015 when the FAST Act 
was enacted, DOT-117 rail tank cars made up just two percent of 
all tank cars transporting class 3 flammable liquids. The 
Committee continues to encourage the Department to work with 
industry to ensure continued progress on the tank car phaseout, 
and if possible, accelerate the phaseout timeline.
    Inland ports of entry.--The Committee directs PHMSA to 
continue to work with local governments and their Mexico 
counterparts at international inland ports of entry with a high 
volume of hazardous materials crossing the border to reduce the 
risk associated with transporting and storing hazardous 
materials and to enhance the capacity of local officials in 
dealing with the threat of hazardous materials incidents.

    PHMSA oversees the safety, security, and environmental 
protection of approximately 2,800,000 miles of pipelines, 163 
liquefied natural gas facilities, and 400 underground natural 
gas storage facilities through analysis of data, damage 
prevention, education and training, development and enforcement 
of regulations and policies, research and development, grants 
for safety programs, and emergency planning and response to 
accidents. The pipeline safety program is responsible for a 
national regulatory program to protect the public against the 
risks to life and property in the transportation of natural 
gas, petroleum, and other hazardous materials by pipeline and 
facilities that liquefy natural gas and store natural gas 
underground.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation provides $182,650,000 for the 
pipeline safety account to continue pipeline safety operations, 
research and development, and grants. Of the total funds 
provided, $27,650,000 is from the oil spill liability trust 
fund, $146,600,000 is from the pipeline safety fund, $400,000 
is from the liquefied natural gas siting account within the 
pipeline safety fund, and $8,000,000 is from the underground 
natural gas storage facility safety account within the pipeline 
safety fund. The following table provides funding levels for

    Research and development.--Between 2001 and 2020, PHMSA 
reported 12,507 pipeline incidents, which resulted in 283 
deaths, 1,180 injuries, and $9,949,823,849 in reported damages. 
Over this 20-year time frame an average of 625 incidents 
occurred each year. Pipeline research and development plays a 
vital role in improving pipeline safety, reducing the 
environmental impacts of pipeline failures, and increasing the 
reliability of the nation's pipeline system through advancing 
new, near-term solutions. While the Committee supports PHMSA's 
pipeline research and development program and appreciates the 
increased level of detail provided by PHMSA on these activities 
in the fiscal year 2022 budget justification, the Committee 
remains concerned with the lack of clarity and transparency of 
PHMSA's research and development program and priorities. The 
Committee notes that the most recently available Pipeline 
Safety Research and Development Five-Year Program Plan is for 
fiscal years 2016 to 2020 and the most recent Pipeline Safety 
Research and Development Biennial Update Report is for fiscal 
years 2017 and 2018. Further, of the $42,000,000 provided for 
pipeline research and development in fiscal years 2019, 2020, 
and 2021, PHMSA had only awarded or committed about half--
$23,110,016--to general research projects and the competitive 
academic agreement program as of May 31, 2021. The Committee 
reminds PHMSA of the requirement in the Consolidated 
Appropriations Act, 2021 (P.L. 116-260) to submit an updated 
research plan to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations and directs PHMSA to brief the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations on this plan no later than 30 days 
after its completion. Further, until the Committee has greater 
transparency and understanding of PHMSA's research plan, 
objectives, and priorities, PHMSA shall only use the 
$13,000,000 in pipeline research and development provided in 
the Committee recommendation for projects which further the six 
programmatic elements in the Pipeline Safety Research and 
Development Five-Year Program Plan issued in October 2017, 
which includes threat prevention; leak detection; anomaly 
detection and characterization; anomaly remediation and repair; 
design, materials, and welding/joining; and LNG and underground 
natural gas storage. In addition, the Committee directs PHMSA 
to use the pipeline research and development unobligated 
balances from fiscal years 2019, 2020, and 2021 to advance 
these same six programmatic elements. The Committee notes that 
this direction does not preclude PHMSA from supporting 
university and small business research projects advancing these 
six programmatic elements through the competitive academic 
agreement program and the small business innovative research 
program.
    Staffing and hiring plans.--The Committee recommendation 
provides funding for a total of 337 full-time positions to 
support the Office of Pipeline Safety, which consists of 235 
inspection and enforcement staff, including the 17 additional 
inspection and enforcement staff that were mandated by the 
PIPES Act of 2020 (division R of P.L. 116-260), and 102 safety 
professionals, including the eight additional regulatory 
positions that were mandated by the same Act. The Committee 
notes that according to the Report to Congress on the Office of 
Pipeline Safety FY 2020 Hiring Actuals and FY 2021 Hiring Plan, 
PHMSA successfully increased the Office of Pipeline Safety 
full-time positions to 305 by September 30, 2020, the highest 
staffing level in three fiscal years. Despite this improvement 
and recognizing the hiring PHMSA must complete in fiscal year 
2022 to meet the requirements in the PIPES Act of 2020, the 
Committee remains concerned with PHMSA's ability to fill 
vacancies and retain staff due in part to competition from the 
private sector. The PIPES Act of 2020 directed PHMSA to use 
incentives, such as special pay rates, repayment of student 
loans, tuition assistance, and other recruitment incentives, to 
recruit and retain a qualified pipeline workforce, including 
inspection and enforcement staff and attorneys and other 
subject matter experts in the Office of Pipeline Safety. The 
Committee recommendation supports PHMSA's proposal in the 
budget request to utilize $2,500,000 in fiscal year 2022 to 
recruit and retain qualified inspectors and engineers through 
such incentives. Further, the Committee directs PHMSA to 
provide a report to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations no later than 120 days after enactment of this 
Act detailing (1) staffing and hiring plans for fiscal year 
2022, (2) information on the actual turnover and hiring in 
fiscal year 2021, and (3) outcomes for the workforce retention 
and recruitment strategies PHMSA implemented or continued in 
fiscal year 2021 as outlined in the fiscal year 2021 hiring 
plan which was included in the Report to Congress on the Office 
of Pipeline Safety FY 2020 Hiring Actuals and FY 2021 Hiring 
Plan.

    The Hazardous Materials Transportation Uniform Safety Act 
of 1990 (P.L. 101-615) requires PHMSA to: (1) develop and 
implement a reimbursable emergency preparedness grants program; 
(2) monitor public sector emergency response training and 
planning and provide technical assistance to states, political 
subdivisions, and tribal governments; and (3) develop and 
periodically update a mandatory training curriculum for 
emergency responders.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation provides $28,318,000 for the 
emergency preparedness grants account.
    Energy products training.--The Committee recognizes the 
important role the emergency preparedness grants program plays 
in training local emergency responders. The Committee directs 
PHMSA to continue to enhance its training curriculum for local 
emergency responders, including response activities for crude 
oil, ethanol, and other flammable liquids transported by rail, 
loading and unloading at LNG facilities, and the transportation 
of LNG in rail tank cars.

    The Office of Inspector General (OIG) was established in 
1978 to provide an objective and independent organization that 
would be more effective in: (1) preventing and detecting fraud, 
waste, and abuse in departmental programs and operations; and 
(2) providing a means of keeping the Secretary of 
Transportation and the Congress fully and currently informed of 
problems and deficiencies in the administration of such 
programs and operations. According to the authorizing 
legislation, the Inspector General is to report dually to the 
Secretary of Transportation and to the Congress.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $103,150,000 for the Office of 
Inspector General.
    Audit reports.--The Committee directs the OIG to continue 
transmitting all audit reports to the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations immediately after they are issued, 
and to continue to make the Committee aware immediately of any 
review that recommends cancellation or modifications to any 
major acquisition project or grant, or which recommends 
significant budgetary savings. The OIG is also directed to 
withhold from public distribution for a period of 15 days, any 
final audit or investigative report that was requested by the 
House or Senate Committees on Appropriations.
    Safety improvements.--The Committee notes that some transit 
agencies use a private, independent safety monitor, whereas 
others use public entities to serve as the state safety 
oversight body. The Committee directs the OIG to analyze the 
differences in safety and financial management between these 
approaches. The Committee directs the OIG to include the 
Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority in this 
analysis.

    The Executive Offices (EO) account funds the salaries and 
expenses for the leadership and executive management offices of 
the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). 
Specifically, these offices are the Office of the Secretary, 
the Office of the Deputy Secretary, the Office of Congressional 
and Intergovernmental Relations, the Office of Public Affairs, 
the Office of Adjudicatory Services, the Office of Small and 
Disadvantaged Business Utilization, and the Center for Faith-
Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee provides $15,000,000 for the Executive 
Offices for fiscal year 2022.
    Collaboration with Department of Health and Human Services 
(HHS).--The Committee recognizes that a number of Department 
programs have an impact in improving health outcomes. The 
Committee is aware that the Continuing Appropriations Act, 2019 
(P.L. 115-245) encouraged HHS to devise a strategy on how to 
construct a decision-support tool that can contribute to 
community-participatory health prevention efforts. The 
Committee is interested in whether HUD can collaborate with HHS 
in such a decision support tool to assess the value of 
departmental investments. Within 90 days of enactment of this 
Act, the Committee directs the Department to report to the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on the 
feasibility of a collaboration with HHS to support a local 
decision support tool. Furthermore, the Committee directs the 
Department to provide a report within 180 days of enactment of 
this Act on ways it can further collaborate and coordinate with 
HHS and other government agencies, such as the Departments of 
Transportation, Veterans Affairs, and Labor, on shared goals 
and values.
    Violence Against Women Act.--The Committee remains 
concerned about the Department's implementation of its 
responsibilities under the Violence Against Women Act, but is 
pleased with the establishment of a position for a Violence 
Against Women Act Director within the Office of the Secretary 
and encourages the Department to fill it expeditiously. In 
addition, the Committee reiterates the direction in House 
Report 116-452 for the Department to provide the Committee with 
information regarding the status of implementation of housing 
protections for victims of domestic violence, dating violence, 
sexual assault, and stalking outlined in 34 U.S.C. 12491, 
including notification requirements, confidentiality 
requirements, and emergency transfers. The Department is also 
directed to provide information about the extent to which 
public housing agencies and owners have adopted emergency 
transfer policies since the publication of the Department's 
model emergency transfer plan, and the effectiveness of those 
emergency transfer policies in allowing victims to access safe 
housing. The Committee directs the Department to provide a 
report to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on 
this information within 90 days of enactment of this Act.
    Energy codes.--The Committee is concerned the Department 
has yet to update minimum energy efficiency standards, as 
required under 42 U.S.C. 12709, since the 2009 International 
Energy Conservation Code and ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2007. 
Further, the Committee notes the findings of the Department of 
Energy reveal that more recent model codes reduce energy use by 
more than 25 percent and are cost effective. The Committee 
urges the Department to take immediate steps to update the 
standards as required under the law, which will reduce 
operating expenses for HUD owned and subsidized properties.
    Efficient, resilient, and healthy housing.--The Committee 
is aware that millions of American households experienced 
energy insecurity last year, unable to pay an energy bill. 
Housing energy consumption can be significantly and 
successfully reduced by increasing energy efficiency through 
methods such as improved envelopes, more efficient HVAC 
systems, efficient lighting and appliances, as well as solar 
and renewable energy systems and building electrification. The 
Committee directs the Secretary to evaluate such measures to 
identify and implement opportunities to improve energy 
efficiency, resilience, and healthfulness of public and 
assisted housing, and lower energy costs for low- and moderate-
income residents. In doing so, the Secretary should consider a 
range of approaches, such as partnering with nonprofit 
organizations with expertise in energy efficiency, 
collaboration with other Federal agencies and with states, 
leveraging private finance, and protecting housing investments 
through measures, such as third party verification of outcomes 
where appropriate. Further, within 180 days of enactment of 
this Act, the Secretary is directed to report to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations on the result of such 
evaluation and provide recommendations for any additional 
funding or authority needed to achieve efficiency, resilience, 
and health improvements in assisted housing.
    Cost analysis on HUD-assisted household spending on rent 
and utilities.--The Committee recognizes that, due to the 
rising cost of utilities, some households that receive Federal 
housing assistance pay more than 30 percent of their income on 
rent and utilities. This issue is most likely to affect 
households that pay for utilities directly and receive a 
utility allowance from their public housing agency (PHA). The 
Committee directs the U.S. Government Accountability Office 
(GAO), in consultation with the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations, to study the issue of utility costs and 
consumption and rent burdens for HUD-assisted households, 
including such matters as: the extent to which rent burdens of 
HUD-assisted households exceed 30 percent; the extent to which 
PHAs review and update utility allowances in accordance with 
HUD guidance; the sufficiency of HUD's guidance for 
establishing utility allowances and HUD's oversight of PHA 
allowance-setting processes; options for minimizing the number 
of households whose rent burdens exceed 30 percent due to 
utility costs, and other topics deemed appropriate by 
Comptroller General to offer recommendations to minimize the 
impact of rising utility costs on families that receive HUD 
housing assistance. The Committee expects an initial 
consultation with GAO on the cost analysis not later than 180 
days after enactment of this Act, with a deadline for the final 
delivery of the report to be set at that time.
    Equal access to housing.--The previous Administration 
removed and rolled back HUD rules, regulations, and guidance 
designed to minimize or eliminate discrimination against 
lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) 
individuals, in particular, sub-regulatory guidance specified 
in House Report 115-750. Under the new leadership, the 
Committee is pleased that the Department has prioritized 
restoring equal protections for all individuals, regardless of 
gender identity by publishing a Notice on April 27, 2021 in the 
Federal Register that effectively withdrew the previous 
Administration's proposed rule that would have threatened 
protections for transgender people and their families. The 
Committee strongly supports HUD's reinstatement of technical 
assistance and guidance for HUD grantees, to help ensure that 
all HUD-assisted and -insured housing remains available to 
eligible persons, without regard to sexual orientation or 
gender identity. It is the belief of the Committee that these 
key steps work to restore equitable access to and treatment in 
Federally assisted housing.
    Top management challenges.--In November 2020, the HUD 
Office of Inspector General (OIG) identified ten top management 
challenges: (1) Responding to the COVID-19 Pandemic, (2) 
Financial Management, (3) Management and Oversight of 
Information Technology, (4) Monitoring and Mitigating Risk, (5) 
Ensuring the Availability of Affordable Housing That is Decent, 
Safe, Sanitary, and in Good Repair, (6) Protecting the FHA 
Insurance Fund, (7) Administering Disaster Recovery Assistance, 
(8) Human Resource Management Challenges, (9) Increasing 
Efficiency in Procurement Processes, and (10) Ensuring Ethical 
Conduct, many of which have been identified as top management 
challenges facing the Department for the past few years. The 
Committee continues to be concerned that the Department is 
stymied by basic business fundamentals, despite increases in 
funding each year. The Committee reminds the Department of the 
direction provided in House Report 116-452 to form an executive 
task form to address the OIG's top management challenges for 
fiscal year 2020, to expand the report to address the 
additional challenges identified in the OIG's 2021 report, and 
further directs the Department to report to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations on the progress of the 
executive task force to address these challenges within 30 days 
of enactment of this Act.
    HUD staffing assessment.--The Committee is concerned by the 
significant reductions in Department staffing levels and by 
reports that affordable housing projects have been delayed 
because the Department lacks the staff capacity to process 
requests in a timely manner. The Committee directs GAO to do a 
comprehensive evaluation of staff capacity across the entire 
Department, including in the field, regional, and headquarters 
offices, in consultation with the House and Senate Committee on 
Appropriations. The report or reports should examine staff 
hiring, training, and retention, the capacity of staff to meet 
workload at current staff levels, the impact of low staff 
capacity on completion of affordable housing projects, and 
provide recommendations both to the Department and the House 
and Senate Committees on Appropriations on ways to improve 
staff capacity.
    Housing income limits for Puerto Rico.--The Committee 
encourages the Department to work with relevant Federal 
stakeholders and the government of Puerto Rico to review 
current income limits used to determine eligibility for 
affordable Federal housing programs in Puerto Rico. The 
Committee further encourages the Department's assessment on how 
these income limits may be affecting the participation of low-
income individuals and developers in Federal housing programs, 
indicate if they are a hinderance in participation, and 
identify ways to potentially remedy this issue.
    Investment in Central Appalachia.--To diversify and enhance 
economic opportunities, the Committee encourages the Secretary 
to prioritize discretionary funding to distressed counties 
within the Central Appalachian region to help communities and 
regions that have been affected by job losses in coal mining, 
coal power plant operations, and coal-related supply chain 
industries due to the economic downturn of the coal industry.
    Women- and minority-owned businesses and procurement.--The 
Committee acknowledges the barriers that women-owned businesses 
and small disadvantaged businesses face. The Committee directs 
HUD to examine its Federal contracting requirements for 
procurement to determine if any revisions need to be made, 
particularly with regard to bonding and insurance, for the 
purpose of promoting contracting with women-owned businesses 
and small disadvantaged businesses, and report back to the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on its findings 
within 270 days of enactment of this Act.
    Review of HUD grantees.--The Committee recognizes that HUD 
appoints Federal monitors to oversee and assist with the 
management of Federal funds and that these monitors may add 
additional cost burdens to the cities, states, and territories 
to which the monitors are appointed. The Committee directs GAO, 
in consultation with the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations, to review the efficacy and cost of the 
monitorship, management, and administration of HUD grantees 
under the direction of a monitor, including the New York City 
Housing Authority and the Community Development Block Grant 
Disaster Recovery administering agencies for Puerto Rico and 
the U.S. Virgin Islands.
    Affordable housing and construction costs.--The Committee 
recognizes that the demand and need for affordable housing 
throughout the nation continues to outpace production and 
supply. Programs like the HOME investment partnerships program, 
choice neighborhoods initiative, Native American housing block 
grants--competitive, housing for the elderly, housing for 
persons with disabilities, and the self-help and assisted 
homeownership opportunity program play a critical role in 
expanding affordable single family and multifamily housing for 
low-income people. In fiscal year 2022, the Committee again 
provides significant resources through these programs to 
support new construction of affordable housing. One of the many 
challenges with combatting the affordable housing crisis is the 
cost of construction. Costs associated with land acquisition, 
infrastructure improvements, construction, and development have 
increased across the country and even more so recently as a 
result of the COVID-19 pandemic. To better understand the 
impacts of construction and development costs on the ability of 
these HUD programs to expand the affordable housing supply, the 
Committee directs GAO to conduct an evaluation of how the per 
unit costs of eligible activities under these HUD programs have 
changed throughout the country based on historical cost trends, 
including identification of regions or housing markets in the 
country where costs have increased more significantly than 
others, an analysis on how such increases impacted affordable 
housing development, and recommendations on how such programs 
could better address this challenge. The Committee directs GAO 
to brief the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on 
its preliminary findings no later than 180 days after enactment 
of this Act, and to provide a full report to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations on a date established 
during such briefing.
    Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) standards.--The Committee 
recognizes that HUD is the only agency that has not adopted the 
ABA implementation guidelines that the Access Board published 
in 2004 and instead continues to apply the Uniform Federal 
Accessibility Standards. Adopting the ABA standards will lead 
to more accessible housing for Americans with disabilities and 
promote greater consistency government-wide with respect to the 
accessibility of Federal facilities. The Committee directs HUD 
to brief the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations 
within 90 days of enactment of this Act on its plans to 
implement these guidelines.

include the Office of the Inspector General and Government 
National Mortgage Association.
    Office space.--The recommendation includes $5,143,000 to 
address urgent, previously unfunded Robert C. Weaver Federal 
Building deferred maintenance and modernization of critical 
infrastructure systems that are well past their useful lives 
and at high-risk of failure. Not later than 90 days after the 
enactment of this Act, the Secretary is directed to submit to 
the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations an 
expenditure plan for these funds. Any changes to this plan are 
subject to the reprogramming process described in section 405 
of this Act.
    Top management challenges.--Based on the Department's top 
ten management challenges identified in November 2020 by the 
HUD OIG, the Committee is concerned that the Department's 
growing and complex mission rests on a fragile foundation. Many 
of these challenges will need to be addressed within the ASO. 
The Committee directs the executives of the ASO to fully 
participate and support the executive task force that the 
Secretary was directed to form to address these challenges.
    Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO).--The 
Committee directs OCIO to hire not less than one FTE for 
project management and one FTE for cost accounting to enhance 
OCIO's ability to estimate and analyze the cost and schedule of 
projects throughout their lifecycle and to report these costs 
and schedules in a timely and accurate manner to internal and 
external stakeholders.

    Empowerment zones (EZs).--The Committee recognizes that EZs 
can serve as an important tool for community revitalization. 
The Committee also acknowledges that additional data is needed 
to assess the effectiveness of EZs. The Committee directs GAO 
to evaluate the effectiveness of round I EZs, including the 
management of Federal funds. The Committee directs GAO to brief 
the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on its 
preliminary findings no later than 180 days after enactment of 
this Act, and to provide a full report to the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations on a date established during such 
briefing.
    Environmental regulations enforcement.--The Committee is 
concerned about the OIG Report entitled, ``Contaminated Sites 
Pose Potential Health Risks to Residents at HUD Funded 
Properties'', (2019-OE-0003) showing that the Department 
neglected for years to enforce its own environmental 
regulations at public housing complexes. This lack of oversight 
resulted in the lead poisoning of children in at least one 
public housing development. Therefore, the Committee directs 
the Department to report on the progress that they have made on 
the recommendations provided by the HUD OIG, in the above-
captioned report within 180 days of enactment of this Act.
    Foster care youth.--The Committee recognizes that foster 
care youth are more likely to suffer from trauma or post-
traumatic stress disorder than other children their age and, on 
average, move once to twice a year. Although children entering 
foster care are required to undergo physical health 
assessments, many children do not receive a mental health 
screening. The Committee strongly recommends that the 
Department collaborate HHS to identify and support programs 
that could promote mental health screenings for foster youth. 
It is the Committee's understanding that these mental health 
screenings should occur within 30 days of a child entering the 
foster care system.

                          WORKING CAPITAL FUND

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

    The Department of Housing and Urban Development's Working 
Capital Fund (WCF), in its present form, was established by the 
Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016 (P.L. 114-113) to perform 
a limited number of commodity-like administrative functions 
where economies of scale can be achieved. These functions are 
limited in statute to the following: printing, records 
management, space renovation, furniture, and supply services.
    The Committee does not provide any funding to the WCF. 
Instead, the WCF staff and its activities are funded with 
transfers from the Department's salary and expenses accounts 
(i.e., Executive Offices, Administrative Support Offices, 
Program Offices, and Government National Mortgage Association).

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    Prior to exercising discretion to centrally fund an 
activity, the Secretary shall have established transparent and 
reliable unit cost accounting for the offices and agencies of 
the Department that use the activity, and shall have adequately 
trained staff within each affected office and agency on 
resource planning and accounting processes associated with the 
centralization of funds to this account.
    Prior to exercising its authority to transfer funds for 
activities beyond what is required for shared service 
agreements, the Committee directs HUD to establish a clear 
execution plan for centralizing the additional activities, and 
to transmit that plan to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations 30 days prior to transferring such funds into 
the WCF.

    In fiscal year 2005, the housing certificate fund was 
separated into two new accounts: tenant-based rental assistance 
and project-based rental assistance. This account administers 
the tenant-based section 8 rental assistance program otherwise 
known as the housing choice voucher program.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $29,215,714,000 for tenant-based 
rental assistance. Consistent with the budget request, the 
Committee continues the advance of $4,000,000,000 of the funds 
appropriated under this heading for section 8 programs to 
October 1, 2022. The following table provides funding levels 
for activities funded within this account.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Voucher renewals.--The Committee provides $24,950,926,000 
for the renewal of tenant-based vouchers. The Committee directs 
the Department to monitor and report to the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations each quarter on the trends in 
section 8 subsidies and to report on the required program 
alterations due to changes in rent or changes in tenant income.
    Incremental vouchers to address homelessness.--The 
Committee provides $1,000,000,000 to support more than 125,000 
new incremental vouchers to expand affordable housing 
opportunities for low-income people in America. The Committee 
supports the use of these funds for housing opportunities 
targeted to individuals and families that are experiencing or 
at-risk of homelessness and individuals and families fleeing, 
or attempting to flee, domestic violence, dating violence, 
sexual assault, or stalking, as well as for veterans.
    Veterans Affairs supportive housing (VASH).--The Committee 
recognizes the value and impact of the HUD-VASH program, which 
serves veterans experiencing homelessness. To continue the 
effort to eliminate homelessness among our Nation's veterans, 
the Committee provides $20,000,000 for new, incremental 
vouchers dedicated to vulnerable veteran households. In 
addition, no less than $762,500,000 of the amounts made 
available for voucher renewals is available to renew more than 
100,000 eligible VASH vouchers funded in prior years. Since 
2008, the Committee has provided more than $835,000,000 in 
targeted funding to increase the number of HUD-VASH vouchers 
available to address veteran homelessness and billions of 
dollars have been made available to renew HUD-VASH vouchers 
over the same period.
    Case management services are critically important to the 
success of the program, and public housing agencies (PHAs) rely 
on Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center referrals 
to house veterans. In fiscal year 2021, the Committee directed 
HUD to work with the VA to determine how PHAs can become 
designated entities to screen for eligibility and make 
referrals to the VA for services. Further, the Committee 
directed the VA and HUD to use their existing authorities to 
allow PHAs to house and provide services to veterans in the 
interim. The Committee directs HUD to continue its coordination 
with VA and to issue guidance no later than one year after 
enactment of this Act on how PHAs can coordinate with local VA 
Medical Centers to improve service delivery and referrals for 
HUD-VASH eligible veterans awaiting a VA-issued referral to 
ensure no veteran goes unserved where housing and services 
remain available. The Committee recommendation provides 
$5,000,000 for PHAs administering temporary case management and 
supportive services for HUD-VASH eligible veterans awaiting a 
referral from the VA.
    Housing and economic mobility.--The Committee supports the 
Department's new initiative to target funds to a mobility 
services demonstration to help families with children move to 
areas of opportunity and provides $150,000,000 for this 
purpose. This level of funding is in addition to the combined 
$50,000,000 provided in fiscal years 2019 and 2020 for the 
housing mobility demonstration, which builds on research that 
has found that when families with young children use housing 
vouchers to locate in areas with quality schools and other 
opportunities, their children are much more likely to attend 
college and earn more income as adults. The Committee believes 
counseling, relocation assistance, landlord incentives, and 
targeted coordination between families, PHAs, financial 
institutions, landlords, and other key stakeholders will be 
critical to helping improve outcomes for low-income children 
and families.
    Vouchers for homeless Native American veterans.--The 
Committee provides up to $5,000,000 for rental assistance and 
associated administrative costs for Tribal HUD-VASH to serve 
Native American veterans who are homeless or at risk of 
homelessness living on or near a reservation, or other Indian 
areas. The Committee anticipates that this funding will be 
needed to renew previously provided rental assistance. This 
program was first funded in fiscal year 2015, and because of 
the unique nature of the program, a separate renewal line is 
required. These resources are in addition to the HUD-VASH 
program.
    The Committee recognizes that the rural and remote nature 
of many tribal communities presents unique barriers to hiring 
and retaining qualified professionals who meet the VA's 
standards for case managers. The Committee encourages HUD to 
continue working collaboratively with the VA and Tribal HUD--
VASH funding recipients to implement their program. In 
addition, the Committee urges HUD to ensure that Tribal HUD--
VASH funding recipients unable to fully implement their program 
due to challenges hiring and retaining case managers are not 
treated inequitably due to delays, particularly in performance 
evaluations and when applying for continued funding.
    Tenant protection vouchers.--The Committee provides 
$100,000,000 for tenant protection vouchers. In its annual 
notice of funding awards for tenant protection vouchers, the 
Department shall also include each specific property ID and 
name that experienced a triggering event to support each 
funding award.
    Section 811 mainstream vouchers.--The Committee provides 
$500,253,000 for section 811 tenant-based subsidies. This level 
of funding is sufficient to renew previously awarded eligible 
vouchers.
    Supportive housing for people with mental illness pilot.--
The Committee is concerned that people with serious mental 
illness have inadequate access to housing and supportive 
services. The Committee is alarmed by the frequency in which 
these individuals are found in hospitals and public 
institutions like jails, prisons, and emergency shelters, which 
results in increased costs to taxpayers and does not allow 
individuals to receive the robust behavioral health services 
that they need. As evidenced by the progress made through the 
HUD-VASH program, the Committee recognizes that pairing housing 
with wrap-around services is a successful model. In fiscal year 
2021, the Committee requested a report from HUD and the 
Department of Health and Human Services Substance Abuse and 
Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) on the 
feasibility of creating a pilot program for individuals with 
serious mental illness. To pilot this initiative, the Committee 
provides up to $5,000,000 for public housing agencies to 
partner with SAMHSA grantees through the projects for 
assistance in transition from homelessness (PATH) program to 
support new housing vouchers for individuals concurrently 
seeking housing and mental health supportive services.
    Family unification program (FUP) vouchers.--The Committee 
provides $25,000,000 for family unification vouchers, which 
provide housing assistance for youth transitioning out of 
foster care and for child welfare-involved families whose 
primary barrier to reunification is lack of stable housing. 
Young adults associated with the child welfare systems are more 
likely to experience homelessness as adults or as they 
transition to adulthood. The Committee recognizes that stable, 
affordable housing with appropriate services can help prevent 
children from being unnecessarily removed from their families 
and help youth exiting foster care transition to adulthood. The 
Committee is concerned that FUP vouchers are underutilized as a 
housing strategy to assist at-risk youth and that PHAs and 
local public child welfare agencies have had limited success in 
developing effective partnerships. According to a May 2014 
report from HUD's Office of Policy Development and Research, 
youth only comprise about 14 percent of the total FUP 
participants. Therefore, the Committee directs $10,000,000 of 
the funding provided for FUP vouchers to PHAs that partner with 
their local public child welfare agency to ensure youth 
referrals for these vouchers. The Committee also includes 
language permitting the Secretary to recapture voucher 
assistance from PHAs that no longer have a need for that 
assistance and reallocate it to PHAs with an identified need.
    Homeless veterans on the United States-Mexico border.--The 
Committee notes that there are many homeless veterans living on 
the United States-Mexico border, many of whom have not 
historically been counted in the point-in-time homelessness 
survey. The Committee directs HUD to take action to ensure that 
HUD--VASH vouchers are made available to this population. The 
Committee further directs HUD to build upon previous work and 
develop strategies and recommendations for addressing and 
reducing veteran homelessness on the southern border. The 
Department is directed to report to the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations on these efforts within 60 days of 
the enactment of this Act.
    Section 8 management assessment program.--In fiscal year 
2019, the Committee directed the Department to analyze whether 
differences in scoring PHAs created inequities and to report to 
the Committee. The Committee continues to look forward to 
receiving the results of this report.
    Housing for the reentry population.--The Committee is 
encouraged by the actions that HUD has taken to reduce the 
barriers that the reentry population faces in securing housing. 
Recognizing that safe and reliable housing is a critical part 
of reducing recidivism, the Committee urges HUD to further 
explore other initiatives to reducing reentry barriers.
    Administrative fees.--The Committee encourages the 
Department to work with its authorizing congressional 
committees to determine the feasibility of providing 
administrative fees for the section 8 housing choice voucher 
program to high performing, fully-leased PHAs that are 
prioritizing housing homeless and special needs populations. 
This consideration should be given to PHAs in high-cost areas 
that serve these populations and have leveraged local 
resources.
    Home buying assistance.--The Committee directs HUD to 
report to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on 
the impediments and/or barriers of using section 8 housing 
choice voucher program funding for the purposes of home 
purchase assistance such as down payment assistance and closing 
costs no later than 120 days after enactment of this Act.
    Project-based vouchers.--The Committee supports the use of 
project-based vouchers for expanding affordable housing to 
special needs populations who would otherwise face barriers in 
finding suitable housing in the private rental market. The 
Committee encourages the Department to work with its 
authorizing congressional committees to consider increasing the 
percentage cap on project-based rental assistance in order to 
expand housing opportunities for populations such as those with 
special needs.

                        HOUSING CERTIFICATE FUND

                        (INCLUDING RESCISSIONS)

    The housing certificate fund, until fiscal year 2005, 
provided funding for both the project-based and tenant-based 
components of the section 8 program. Project-based rental 
assistance and tenant-based rental assistance are now 
separately funded accounts. The housing certificate fund 
retains balances from previous years' appropriations.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    Language is included to allow unobligated balances from 
specific accounts to renew or amend project-based rental 
assistance contracts.

                          PUBLIC HOUSING FUND

 
 
 
Appropriation, fiscal year 2021.......................    $7,806,000,000
Budget request, fiscal year 2022......................     8,575,000,000
Recommended in the bill...............................     8,640,000,000
Bill compared with:
    Appropriation, fiscal year 2021...................      +834,000,000
    Budget request, fiscal year 2022..................       +65,000,000
 

    The public housing fund provides funding for the costs 
associated with operating and maintaining public housing, as 
well as modernization and capital expenses for approximately 
3,100 PHAs (except tribally designated housing entities) that 
manage public housing units.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $8,640,000,000 for the public 
housing fund to support the operating and capital expenses of 
more than 960,000 public housing units in calendar year 2022.
    Operating and capital formula grants.--The Committee 
recommendation provides $4,897,000,000 to allocate to PHAs by 
formula to support the operating expenses of public housing. Of 
the funding provided for operating formula grants, the 
Committee recommendation includes up to $21,000,000 for 
resident participation activities, including tenant organizing 
activities, capacity building and technical assistance, and 
access to community services. The Committee recommendation 
provides $3,400,000,000 to allocate to PHAs by formula to 
support the maintenance of public housing. This level of 
funding will address the estimated accrual need in calendar 
year 2022 to prevent the loss of any public housing unit to 
disrepair.
    Shortfall prevention.--The Committee recommendation 
provides $25,000,000 for shortfall prevention to reduce the 
risk of financial insolvency for high risk PHAs.
    Emergency and disaster grants.--The Committee 
recommendation provides $65,000,000 for emergency capital 
needs, excluding Presidentially-declared disasters. Of this 
amount, $45,000,000 is for PHAs in receivership or under the 
direction of a Federal monitor and no less than $10,000,000 is 
for safety and security measures.
    Financial and physical assessment.--The Committee 
recommendation provides $23,000,000 to support the ongoing 
public housing financial and physical assessment activities of 
HUD's real estate assessment center.
    Administrative and judicial receiverships.--The Committee 
recommendation provides $15,000,000 to support the costs of 
administrative and judicial receiverships.
    Lead hazard reduction and healthy homes.--The Committee 
recommendation provides $65,000,000 for competitive grants to 
PHAs to evaluate and reduce lead-based paint and other health 
hazards, including addressing carbon monoxide, mold, fire 
safety, and other household hazards. Of this amount, up to 
$5,000,000 is to continue a pilot for radon testing and 
mitigation in public housing.
    Energy and water performance.--The Committee supports the 
Department's energy performance contracting (EPC) as a tool for 
innovative financing that uses cost savings from reduced energy 
consumption to repay the cost of installing energy conservation 
measures. The Committee recognizes that HUD's rate reduction 
incentive allows PHAs to share cost savings resulting from 
utility rate reduction action equally with HUD. In order to 
strengthen energy conservation measures, the Committee 
recommendation provides $50,000,000 for public housing energy 
and water efficiency initiatives, including an EPC incentive 
pilot program. As part of this pilot, the Committee directs HUD 
to consider the following changes to its utility cost reduction 
programs: (1) accept rate reduction benefit from all utilities; 
(2) waive the three-year water baselines; (3) permit use of all 
available funding sources to generate utility savings, 
including the frozen base; (4) remove restrictions on EPC 
incentives; and (5) allow structured financing for operations 
and maintenance to reduce costs. The Committee recognizes that 
there is insufficient information to estimate the full cost of 
public housing capital needs due to a lack of data on the costs 
of public housing electrification. The Committee directs HUD to 
ensure that PHAs participating in the pilot include a detailed 
description of energy deficiencies in their physical needs 
assessments.
    Further, the Energy Policy Act of 2005 amended the public 
housing capital section of the United States Housing Act of 
1937 to encourage the integration of utility management and 
capital planning to maximize energy conservation and efficiency 
measures. All PHAs are currently required to perform energy 
audits every five years pursuant to 24 CFR 965. However, energy 
audit data is not collected on a national basis, nor is it 
required to be integrated with capital needs planning. 
Decarbonizing the existing public housing stock is projected to 
reduce carbon emissions by as much as 5.6 million metric tons, 
which is the equivalent of 1.2 million cars each year. In the 
process, it is estimated that energy cost savings of up to 70 
percent could be realized and up to 240,000 jobs could be 
created each year, including 36,000 on-site maintenance and 
constructions jobs. The Committee believes that the Department 
and PHAs have the potential to ensure a sustainable future for 
public housing and directs HUD to submit a report to the House 
and Senate Committees on Appropriations within 120 days of 
enactment of this Act on how HUD and PHAs can increase the 
available data on public housing for energy usage, energy 
conservation and efficiency measures, and other relevant 
information, including green physical needs assessments, in 
order to ensure public housing fund resources are being used in 
a way that maximizes their impact.
    Utility conservation and climate resiliency.--The Committee 
recommendation includes $100,000,000 for competitive grants to 
PHAs for capital improvements to reduce utility consumption or 
improve the climate resilience of public housing.
    Green retrofits.--The Committee recognizes the benefits of 
readily available physical and green assessment data that could 
assist with long-term asset management, ensure resident safety 
and well-being, and promote the longevity and decarbonization 
of public housing. The Committee believes that HUD is well-
suited to provide data on green retrofits financed through the 
public housing fund and directs HUD, in collaboration with 
PHAs, to report on green retrofitting activities by PHA.
    Quality assurance of physical inspections.--The Committee 
is troubled by reports of deplorable living conditions found in 
some HUD-subsidized properties across the country. The scope of 
this issue spans geographic regions, highlights systemic 
problems, and calls into question the effectiveness of HUD's 
oversight and the real estate assessment center's (REAC) 
inspections of HUD-assisted housing. The Committee encourages 
the Department to work with the Committee on enforcement 
actions, including civil monetary penalties, that HUD can take 
to ensure PHAs and landlords maintain the physical quality and 
safety of HUD-assisted units. Similarly, while the Committee is 
supportive of efforts to quickly issue tenant-protection 
vouchers, the issuance of such vouchers due to unsafe housing 
conditions is an acknowledgement by the Department that it has 
failed to ensure housing units are maintained as decent, safe, 
and sanitary. Additionally, failure to maintain the physical 
condition of HUD-assisted properties results in a loss of 
critical affordable housing and tenant protection vouchers are 
more difficult for individual and families to utilize in 
communities with limited affordable housing options. As part of 
any change in inspection protocols or standards, the Committee 
directs the Department to solicit comments from stakeholders, 
including tenants, to identify ways the Department can improve 
its inspection protocols and oversight. The Committee will 
continue to closely monitor the Department's efforts and 
progress and directs the Department to submit to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations, within 60 days of 
enactment of this Act, a report identifying how HUD is 
improving the inspection process and related protocols, 
including quality assurance of inspections, identified actions 
yet to be implemented, the status of actions undertaken, and a 
timeline for completion of all actions.
    Public housing trusts.--The Committee recognizes that 
certain public housing preservation and recapitalization tools 
result in affordable housing units being transferred to the 
ownership of public entities. The Committee is aware that, as 
part of these ownership transfers, some PHAs have expressed 
interest in establishing a separate entity to further leverage 
public and private funding sources, including through the 
establishment of a public housing trust, in order to execute 
capital projects with the greatest possible efficiency. When 
converting public housing units, the Committee encourages the 
Department to work with PHAs in order to leverage public-
private partnerships.
    Fire safety.--The Committee understands that while the 
Federal Fire Safety Act of 1992 mandated that all new public 
housing units have automatic sprinkler systems, it did not 
mandate that these systems be installed in Federally-assisted 
housing units built prior to the date of enactment of the Act, 
which poses a risk to tenants residing in outdated units 
without adequate fire sprinkler systems. The Committee 
recommendation provides funding under this heading for fire 
safety, which may be used to install automatic sprinkler system 
in public housing. Furthermore, the Committee directs the 
Department to provide a report within 120 days of enactment of 
this Act to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations 
on the presence or absence of automatic sprinkler systems in 
public housing.
    Burial grounds.--The Committee directs HUD to survey PHAs 
to determine how many public housing properties are known to be 
built on cemeteries or historic burial grounds and report its 
findings to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations 
within 90 days of enactment of this Act.
    Recycling and zero waste.--The Committee recognizes the 
benefits of recycling and zero-waste programs and supports 
expanding the availability of such programs in public housing. 
Therefore, the Committee directs the Department to create a 
pilot program to support recycling and zero-waste programs in 
public housing and provides $10,000,000 from public housing 
operations funding under this heading for such a pilot program.
    Carbon monoxide.--The Committee is alarmed at reports of 
incidents of carbon monoxide poisoning in public housing and 
supports the Department's use of emergency safety and security 
funding provided under this heading to award funding to PHAs 
for the purchase and installation of carbon monoxide detectors. 
The Committee directs HUD to, within 90 days of enactment of 
this Act, report to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations on its progress to meet the requirements of 
section 101 of title I of division Q of the Consolidated 
Appropriations Act, 2021 (P.L. 116-260), including its efforts 
to educate tenants on carbon monoxide poisoning to help prevent 
future injuries, deaths, and other harms.
    Physical needs assessments.--The Committee recognizes that 
the data needed to estimate the full cost of public housing 
capital needs is insufficient to inform short- and long-term 
funding and capital planning needs. The Committee urges the 
Department to consider requiring a detailed description of 
energy deficiencies as part of a PHA's physical needs 
assessments.

                    CHOICE NEIGHBORHOODS INITIATIVE

 
 
 
Appropriation, fiscal year 2021.......................      $200,000,000
Budget request, fiscal year 2022......................       250,000,000
Recommended in the bill...............................       400,000,000
Bill compared with:
    Appropriation, fiscal year 2021...................      +200,000,000
    Budget request, fiscal year 2022..................      +150,000,000
 

    The choice neighborhoods initiative program leverages 
significant public and private funding to support locally 
driven strategies that transform underserved neighborhoods with 
distressed public and/or HUD-assisted housing into 
neighborhoods of choice through a comprehensive approach. The 
program uses Federal grants to help communities transform 
neighborhoods by revitalizing severely distressed public and/or 
HUD-assisted housing into high quality, energy efficient, 
mixed-income housing; providing supportive services to 
residents related to employment, health care, and education; 
and catalyzing community-wide improvements in the neighborhood, 
like addressing vacant property, economic development, public 
safety, services, and schools.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation provides $400,000,000 for the 
choice neighborhoods initiative program. Of the total funds 
provided, not more than $10,000,000 is for planning grants to 
conduct comprehensive local planning for neighborhood 
transformation plans which includes engagement with residents 
and the community. The Committee encourages the Department to 
give prior year planning grant recipients priority 
consideration when awarding implementation grants.
    Supporting residents.--Supportive services are a key 
component to helping residents thrive and remain stably housed. 
Through the choice neighborhoods initiative program, supportive 
services are tailored to the needs of residents to strengthen 
self-sufficiency by focusing on employment and income, health, 
and education. These services help ensure individuals receive 
support during their relocation and return to the public and/or 
HUD-assisted housing that is being redeveloped. For households 
receiving this support, HUD has found that 85 percent of 
grantees have increased employment rates, the percentage of 
residents with a regular health care provider has increased, 
and the number of children participating in early childhood and 
after-school programs increased by 22 percent and 26 percent, 
respectively. The Committee notes that the amount of 
implementation grant funding that may be used for supportive 
services for residents is limited to 15 percent, and that 66 
percent of all implementation grant awardees budgeted the 
maximum 15 percent allowable for supportive services and the 
average for all awardees was 14.8 percent. Considering the 
strong utilization of funding for supportive services by 
awardees and the demonstrated success for residents, the Act 
increases the maximum amount of implementation grant funding 
that may be used for supportive services to 20 percent in order 
to continue to improve social outcomes for residents.
    Improving cross-agency coordination.--The Committee is 
pleased that the Department of Transportation (DOT) 
incorporated the choice neighborhoods initiative program into 
the notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) for some of its fiscal 
year 2021 competitive grant programs, effectively making an 
application for a transportation project proposed in a choice 
neighborhood more competitive than a similar transportation 
project not located in a choice neighborhood. In order to 
achieve a successful neighborhood transformation, a choice 
neighborhoods initiative applicant must leverage significant 
public and private funding opportunities. At the Federal level, 
a diverse set of agencies including DOT, the Department of 
Health and Human Services (HHS), the Department of Education 
(ED), and the Department of Labor (DOL), among others, could 
all have a role to play in the housing, people, and 
neighborhood components of the choice neighborhoods initiative 
program. However, it is often difficult for local communities, 
especially lower-income and disadvantaged communities, to 
leverage resources across multiple Federal agencies. The 
Committee directs HUD to work with DOT, HHS, ED, DOL, and any 
other Federal agencies HUD deems appropriate to identify 
Federal resources which could be leveraged by choice 
neighborhoods initiative applicants and awardees, improve 
cross-agency coordination with respect to NOFOs, if 
appropriate, and to explore developing incentives and 
increasing emphasis within NOFOs on certain activities to 
encourage potential applicants to approach community 
development in a more holistic manner. The Committee directs 
HUD to brief the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations 
on its initial cross-agency engagement and findings no later 
than 180 days after the enactment of this Act.
    Program evaluation.--Since fiscal year 2010, HUD has 
awarded more than $1,200,000,000 to 41 implementation grants. 
These implementation grants will replace more than 11,300 
distressed public and/or HUD-assisted housing units, construct 
more than 26,800 total affordable and market rate housing 
units, leverage more than $7 of non-Federal investment for 
every $1 of implementation grant funding, and as noted earlier 
improve social outcomes for residents. An initial study on the 
first five choice neighborhoods, managed by HUD's Office of 
Policy Development and Research (PDR), was completed in 2015. 
At that time, the five choice neighborhoods had not completed 
their full implementation, redevelopment was still underway, 
and Federal funding was still being expended. The Committee 
understands that PDR has initiated phase two of this study to 
collect additional information on the first five choice 
neighborhoods and a second cohort of choice neighborhoods. This 
follow-on evaluation will provide HUD and Congress with 
important information on the outcomes, challenges, and 
opportunities for the housing, people, and neighborhood 
elements of the choice neighborhoods initiative program. The 
Committee directs HUD to brief the House and Senate Committees 
on Appropriations on the status of phase two of this study, 
including any initial findings, no later than 120 days after 
the enactment of this Act.

                       SELF-SUFFICIENCY PROGRAMS

    The self-sufficiency programs account funds several 
programs which help low-income individuals and families living 
in subsidized housing enhance job skills, increase earnings, 
and improve their economic security. The family self-
sufficiency (FSS) program provides grants for FSS coordinators 
to public housing agencies (PHAs) and the Economic Growth, 
Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act (P.L. 115-174) 
expanded eligibility to residents of project-based rental 
assistance (PBRA) properties. The resident opportunity and 
self-sufficiency (ROSS) program funds service coordinators to 
work with residents of public and Indian housing, and the jobs-
plus initiative provides grants to PHAs, which are required to 
partner with Department of Labor jobs centers.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation provides $200,000,000 for the 
self-sufficiency programs account. The following table provides 
funding levels for activities within this account.

    Expanded FSS eligibility.--The Committee commends HUD for 
issuing a proposed rule on September 21, 2020 to implement the 
Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act 
(P.L. 115-174) which amended the FSS program. Specifically, 
section 306 of P.L. 115-174 streamlined FSS program 
administration and expanded the program to residents of PBRA 
properties. The Committee directs HUD to thoroughly review and 
consider all comments received in response to the proposed rule 
and to issue a final rule as soon as practicable. In addition, 
the Act ensures that owners or sponsors of PBRA properties are 
eligible for new grants upon the Secretary issuing a final 
rule.
    FSS performance measurement system.--In 2017, HUD issued a 
notice requesting comment on a proposed performance measurement 
system for PHAs receiving FSS program coordinator grants. On 
November 15, 2018, HUD issued a final notice on the new 
performance measurement system with revisions to the 
methodology used to compute FSS performance scores in response 
to public comments received to the notice. According to the 
final notice entitled ``Family Self-Sufficiency Performance 
Measurement System (``Composite Score'')'', a PHA's FSS 
performance score will be calculated based on an earnings 
performance measure, graduation rate, and participation rate. 
While HUD intended to begin using this performance measurement 
system in determining FSS funding awards in fiscal year 2019, 
section 236 of the Further Consolidated Appropriations Act, 
2020 (P.L. 116-94) and section 233 of the Consolidated 
Appropriations Act, 2021 (P.L. 116-260) prohibited HUD from 
considering performance measures or scores in making funding 
awards for the FSS program. The Committee supports the intent 
of HUD's efforts to evaluate individual FSS programs, which 
could provide HUD vital information on the FSS program overall 
and inform best practices and technical assistance. However, 
the Committee considers the focus on earnings, graduation rate, 
and participation rate to be too narrow in scope and 
insufficient in terms of measuring success and outcomes for 
individuals participating in the program. For example, while 
graduation rates are important such a metric does not provide 
insights into how graduation from the FSS program may result in 
individuals exiting HUD-assisted housing and no longer needing 
rental assistance. The Committee understands that HUD is 
working to make further improvements to the performance 
measurement system and directs HUD to consider additional 
metrics focused on social outcomes for individuals.
    Tribal participation.--The Committee reminds HUD, 
applicants, and residents of HUD-assisted housing that tribes 
and tribally designated housing entities are eligible 
applicants for the ROSS program.

    The Native American programs account funds the Native 
American housing block grants and Indian community development 
block grant programs. The Native American housing block grants 
program, authorized by the Native American Housing Assistance 
and Self-Determination Act of 1996 (NAHASDA), provides funding 
to American Indian tribes and tribally designated housing 
entities (TDHEs) to help address affordable housing needs in 
tribal communities. The Indian community development block 
grant program, authorized under title I of the Housing and 
Community Development Act of 1974, provides American Indian 
tribes the opportunity to compete for funding to address tribal 
community development needs.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation provides $950,000,000 for the 
Native American programs account. The following table provides 
funding levels for activities within this account.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In addition, the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (P.L. 
117-2) provided a total of $745,000,000 to prevent, prepare 
for, and respond to COVID-19, of which $450,000,000 was for the 
Native American housing block grants formula program, 
$280,000,000 was for the Indian community development block 
grant program, $10,000,000 was for training and technical 
assistance, and $5,000,000 was for administrative oversight.
    Competitive grants.--A 2017 HUD report confirmed that 
homelessness in tribal areas translates into overcrowded homes, 
finding that between 42,000 and 85,000 Native Americans were 
living with friends or relatives only because they had no place 
of their own and to prevent homelessness. In addition, 23 
percent of households in tribal areas experienced plumbing, 
kitchen, heating, electrical, and maintenance problems which is 
significantly more than the five percent of all U.S. households 
experiencing similar issues. According to the report, 33,000 
new units are needed in Indian country to eliminate 
overcrowding and another 35,000 new units are needed to replace 
units that are physically inadequate. Recognizing this 
significant need in tribal communities across the country, the 
Committee has appropriated $400,000,000 for competitive grants 
to eligible recipients under NAHASDA to spur the construction 
and rehabilitation of housing. To date, HUD has awarded funding 
from fiscal years 2018, 2019, and 2020, which is expected to 
result in approximately 1,700 new and rehabilitated housing 
units. The Committee recommendation provides $150,000,000 to 
continue to assist tribal communities with expanding affordable 
housing and improving housing conditions through this 
competitive grant program. In addition, the Act expands this 
competitive grant program to allow the Secretary to award 
grants to rehabilitate or retrofit housing units owned, 
operated, or assisted by eligible recipients under NAHASDA to 
improve water or energy efficiency or increase resilience to 
natural hazards.
    The Committee directs HUD to administer the fiscal year 
2022 funding as a stand-alone competition and to review and 
score each application in its entirety. HUD shall not combine 
the fiscal year 2022 notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) with 
prior or future year appropriations for the same purpose, 
except that any remaining unobligated balances from prior 
fiscal year competitions may be included in the fiscal year 
2022 NOFO. While the fiscal year 2022 NOFO should require 
applicants to meet a capacity threshold, it shall not provide 
additional points for capacity above want is needed to 
successfully administer these grants. Further, the Committee 
notes that $1,727,000 in funding appropriated in fiscal year 
2017 remains available in the section 184 loan guarantee 
program for the construction of rental housing for law 
enforcement, health care, educational, technical, and other 
skilled workers. The Committee encourages tribes and TDHEs to 
consider utilizing this support for workforce housing when 
developing projects for these competitive grants.
    Formula grant overfunding.--The Native American housing 
block grants formula program allocation is based on need, as 
measured in part by current assisted housing stock. However, 
housing data used to calculate allocations in any given year 
often contains inaccuracies that are subsequently corrected. 
These data revisions result in some Indian tribes having 
received grants in excess of their accurate formula allocation 
which in turn causes all other Indian tribes to be technically 
underfunded for that same year. To address this recurring 
problem, the Department has in the past recouped prior year 
awards made in excess of eligibility by offsetting current year 
awards. The Committee believes that this practice is within the 
Department's authority. To ensure that the Native American 
housing block grants formula program is allocated accurately 
and in accordance with statutory requirements, the Committee 
directs the Department to continue the practice of offsetting 
formula allocations in fiscal year 2022 should it receive data 
indicating that an overpayment occurred, provided the 
Department takes action within three years from the date the 
formula response form is sent out. If the Department recoups 
funds from a tribe and a subsequent appeals process determines 
that the funds should not have been recouped, the Committee 
directs the Department to increase the tribe's next funding 
allocation, following the final appeals determination, equal to 
the amount of the improperly recouped funds.
    Training and technical assistance.--The Committee 
recommendation provides $7,000,000 for training and technical 
assistance needs in Indian country to support the Native 
American housing block grants program, the Indian community 
development block grant program, and other HUD programs in 
order to meet the needs of Native American families and tribal 
communities. The Committee directs HUD to use this funding to 
aid tribes with capacity challenges. The funding should be used 
for training, contract expertise, inspections, and other 
services necessary to address needs identified by tribes. Of 
the total funding provided, no less than $2,000,000 shall be 
awarded to a national organization as authorized by section 703 
of NAHASDA.
    Reservation housing.--The Committee recognizes the 
importance of housing assistance provided as a result of 
NAHASDA and encourages the Department to support efforts by 
tribes to renovate substandard reservation housing. HUD has an 
obligation to ensure that housing in its inventory is 
transferred to Indian tribes, TDHEs, or eligible Native 
American families as expeditiously as possible.
    Coastal tribes.--The Committee understands that several 
coastal tribal communities are actively working to relocate 
homes and other critical infrastructure to higher ground to 
mitigate the impacts of climate change. The Committee 
encourages HUD to prioritize funding and technical assistance 
resources to support these efforts and to encourage the use of 
resilient building and planning practices throughout Indian 
country. Further, the Act expands the Native American housing 
block grants competitive program to allow the Secretary to 
award grants to rehabilitate or retrofit housing units owned, 
operated, or assisted by eligible recipients under NAHASDA to 
improve water or energy efficiency or increase resilience to 
natural hazards and allows the Secretary to give priority to 
projects that include activities that improve water or energy 
efficiency or increase resilience to natural hazards through 
the Indian community development block grant program.

    Section 184 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 
1992 established a loan guarantee program for Native American 
individuals, tribes, and tribally designated housing entities 
to build new housing or purchase existing housing on trust 
land. This program provides access to private financing that 
otherwise might be unavailable because of the unique legal 
status of Indian trust land.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation provides $3,500,000 for the 
Indian housing loan guarantee fund program account, of which 
$3,000,000 is for the cost of section 184 guaranteed loans and 
$500,000 is for administrative contract expenses to carry out 
the section 184 loan guarantee program. The Act allows HUD to 
use prior year unobligated balances to support the cost of 
section 184 guaranteed loans. The fiscal year 2022 funding 
combined with the unobligated balances will support a total 
loan volume of up to $1,400,000,000.
    Management and oversight.--The Committee remains concerned 
with the Department's response to three management and 
oversight reviews by the HUD OIG on the section 184 program, 
with the initial audit report dating back to 2015. In the 
Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (P.L. 116-260) the 
Committee directed the HUD OIG to conduct a follow-up review on 
the section 184 program to determine if the weaknesses in 
internal controls and information technology (IT) systems 
previously identified by the HUD OIG have been effectively 
addressed. According to the June 2021 update the Committee 
received from the HUD OIG on the status of the Department's 
efforts to address these issues, 16 of the 20 recommendations 
the HUD OIG has issued or reopened remain open and unresolved. 
Further, the HUD OIG reiterated that the Office of Native 
American Programs (ONAP) ``must continue its efforts to get the 
Section 184 program to a point at which there are adequate 
systems, monitoring, oversight, and enforcement.'' While 14 of 
the open recommendations are targeted for completion by the end 
of calendar year 2021, the Committee remains concerned with the 
Department's ability to complete this work. Further, while the 
Committee notes positive progress on the IT systems in the 
information technology fund account, addressing the IT systems 
needs is only one portion of the issues ONAP must address. The 
Committee directs the Department to redouble its efforts to 
complete the necessary regulations, develop and implement 
policies and procedures to supplement such regulations, work 
with authorizing committees to enact indemnification authority, 
and address issues relating to the expenditure of the 
administrative contract expenses. The section 184 program is an 
important tool to foster Native American homeownership and has 
typically supported between 3,000 and 4,000 loans each year. It 
is imperative that the Department fully implement the HUD OIG 
recommendations to ensure the integrity and sustainability of 
this vital program for Native Americans, tribes, and tribally 
designated housing entities.

    The Hawaiian Homelands Homeownership Act of 2000 created 
the Native Hawaiian housing block grant program to provide 
grants to the State of Hawaii Department of Hawaiian Home Lands 
(DHHL) for housing activities on Hawaiian home lands, in order 
to develop, maintain, and operate affordable housing for 
eligible low-income Native Hawaiians. As one of the United 
States' indigenous people, Native Hawaiian people have a unique 
relationship with the Federal government.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation provides $4,000,000 for the 
Native Hawaiian housing block grant program. The Committee 
directs the Department to continue to provide technical 
assistance to DHHL in developing and executing plans to meet 
the housing needs of low-income Native Hawaiians.
    In addition, the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (P.L. 
117-2) provided $5,000,000 for the Native Hawaiian housing 
block grant program to prevent, prepare for, and respond to 
COVID-19.

    Section 184A of the Housing and Community Development Act 
of 1992 established a loan guarantee program for Native 
Hawaiians who are eligible to reside on Hawaiian home lands and 
would otherwise face barriers to acquiring such financing 
because of the unique legal status of the Hawaiian home lands.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee rejects the proposal in the budget request to 
rescind $6,000,000 in prior year unobligated balances from the 
section 184A loan guarantee program. The Act provides 
$28,000,000 in loan guarantee commitment authority to make 
section 184A loans and provides the Secretary the authority to 
guarantee refinance loans.

    The Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) 
program provides states and localities with resources to 
address the housing needs of low-income persons living with 
HIV/AIDS. Stable housing can reduce risky behavior, improve 
adherence to medication, and reduce HIV transmission. Funding 
is distributed primarily by formula to qualifying states and 
metropolitan areas based on the number of individuals living 
with HIV/AIDS reported to the Centers for Disease Control, 
housing costs, and poverty rates. Government grantees are 
required to have a HUD-approved comprehensive plan.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $600,000,000 for HOPWA, which is 
sufficient funding to ensure that no grantee receives less 
funding in fiscal year 2022 than they did in fiscal year 2021. 
The Committee recommendation includes formula grants and 
funding for the renewal of certain expiring contracts that were 
previously funded under HOPWA competitive grants.
    Formula modernization.--As HOPWA formula modernization has 
come to an end and housing continues to consume a larger 
percentage of the incomes of low- and moderate- income people, 
the Committee is concerned that without significant increases 
in funding, people living with HIV or AIDS in communities 
nationwide will lose their access to stable housing. With this 
recommended funding level, as well as funds for any community 
that would see its funding reduced, the Committee strives to 
ensure that no person who is currently housed will lose such 
housing or associated services.
    Competitive program.--The Committee is concerned that the 
automatic renewal of competitive grants does not fulfill the 
goals of the HOPWA program or advance the practice of providing 
essential services to people living with HIV or AIDS. At the 
same time, the Committee is aware that certain providers 
eligible for such renewals may be the only providers in their 
state or area. As a result, the Committee provides a way for 
service providers with pre-2010 grants to transition into new 
service models or to show that current models are effective for 
the population they are serving. The Committee believes that 
competitive funds under the HOPWA program can provide 
innovations in care that inform the practice of providing 
housing and other services for people living with HIV or AIDS. 
The Committee expects that over the next several years, as the 
next step after formula modernization, preference for pre-2010 
grantees will lessen.

                       COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT FUND

 
 
 
Appropriation, fiscal year 2021.......................    $3,475,000,000
Budget request, fiscal year 2022......................     3,770,000,000

Bill compared with:
    Appropriation, fiscal year 2021...................    +1,213,000,000
    Budget request, fiscal year 2022..................      +918,000,000
 

    The Community Development Fund, authorized by the Housing 
and Community Development Act of 1974 (42 U.S.C. 5301 et seq.), 
provides funding, primarily through Community Development Block 
Grants (CDBG), to state and local governments and other 
eligible entities to carry out community and economic 
development activities.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends a total of $4,688,000,000 for the 
CDBG formula program for entitlement communities and states. Of 
the amount provided for the CDBG formula programs, $7,000,000 
is for insular areas, per 42 U.S.C. 5306(a)(2), which is the 
same as the fiscal year 2021 enacted level. The recommendation 
continues language requiring the Department to notify grantees 
of their formula allocation not later than 60 days after 
enactment of this Act.
    In addition, under this header, the Committee provides up 
to $935,500,000 for community projects funded through the 
Economic Development Initiative (EDI) program in accordance 
with the table at the end of this report.
    Resilience.--The Committee again directs the Secretary to 
encourage grantees of the CDBG program to utilize funds for 
activities designed to increase project resilience including 
hardening structures to withstand severe weather and other 
natural hazards such as flooding, wind, and other hazards 
identified by the Secretary.
    Reinvestment in low- and moderate-income communities.--The 
Committee reminds both HUD and grantees that a core tenet of 
the CDBG program is the improvement of the living environment 
of low- and moderate-income families. The Committee challenges 
grantees to refocus the level of CDBG investment in low- and 
moderate-income families and neighborhoods. CDBG funding is a 
tool to create equitable, viable, and cohesive neighborhoods 
throughout a jurisdiction. Further, the Committee notes that 
CDBG funding can be used to rebuild and revitalize areas 
affected by civil unrest and strongly encourages grantees that 
have an identified need for this purpose to consider using CDBG 
funding in these areas.
    Transitional housing for individuals exiting recovery.--The 
Committee recognizes the importance of stable transitional 
living environments for individuals in recovery from substance 
misuse disorder, including opioid addiction, and includes up to 
$25,000,000 for activities authorized under section 8071 of the 
SUPPORT for Patients and Communities Act (P.L. 115-271). The 
Committee directs HUD to encourage CDBG recipients to provide 
funding to organizations that offer transitional housing 
opportunities to those in recovery, and further directs HUD to 
give special consideration to recipients that offer wrap-around 
services for those exiting recovery. Fiscal year 2022 will be 
the third year of funding for the SUPPORT Act. As a result, the 
Committee directs HUD to complete an analysis of how such 
funding has been used in order to identify and disseminate best 
practices for housing and supporting individuals in recovery.
    Technical assistance for the SUPPORT Act.--Notwithstanding 
section 8071(f) of the SUPPORT for Patients and Communities 
Act, the Committee includes funds for technical assistance 
under the SUPPORT Act within the Office of Policy, Development 
and Research to ensure that HUD can support CDBG grantees in 
facilitating housing for people recovering from opioid 
addiction and to ensure efficient and effective spending of 
appropriated funds.
    Fairness in CDBG formulas.--The Committee is concerned that 
the CDBG distribution formulas are not accurately targeting 
communities with the most pressing needs and the least ability 
to address those needs with their own resources. The Congress 
explored revising formulas during 2005 and 2006 but no 
legislation was ever passed. In order to revisit the question, 
the Committee directs HUD to update the 2005 report titled 
``CDBG Formula Targeting to Community Development Need'' in 
order to analyze the current formula's effectiveness in meeting 
the goals of the CDBG program and if it is meeting those goals 
equitably. The Committee directs HUD's Office of Policy, 
Development, and Research to complete a publicly available 
report and brief the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriation within one year of enactment of this Act.
    CDBG best practices report.--The Committee is pleased with 
the provision of a CDBG best practices report to Congress. The 
Committee recognizes that the flexibility of the CDBG program 
can bring development to communities with diverse needs and 
assets. The Committee encourages HUD to conduct trainings on 
best practices gleaned from success stories from urban areas. 
Such trainings will provide technical expertise to other 
struggling urban areas on how best to invest and leverage these 
grants.
    Coordination.--In order to enhance program design and 
administration at the local level, the Committee encourages HUD 
to coordinate with other agencies including, but not limited 
to, DOT, the Department of Commerce, and the Department of 
Agriculture to target resources and program goals for 
infrastructure and other projects funded under CDBG.
    Buy America.--The Committee supports the use of American 
made iron, steel, and manufactured products with use of funds 
provided under the CDBG program. The Committee encourages HUD 
to support grantee's use of American manufactured products for 
the construction, reconstruction, installation, maintenance, or 
repair of public works or buildings.
    Puerto Rico disaster recovery.--The Committee directs the 
Department to improve the administration of aid for natural 
disaster relief efforts in Puerto Rico to ensure a more timely 
and effective response in addressing the overwhelming needs of 
the territory. Puerto Rico remains in the relatively early 
stages of recovery from the devastation caused by Hurricanes 
Maria and Irma in 2017 and the major earthquake activity in 
2019 and 2020. HUD must take all necessary steps to 
significantly progress the administration of agency personnel 
assistance and congressionally provided aid for Puerto Rico, 
including efforts to improve resiliency of the territory's 
energy grid and stabilize permanent housing readiness.
    Disaster mitigation.--The Committee is concerned that 
Community Development Block Grant Mitigation (CDBG--MIT) 
Program funds that were appropriated for Hurricane Harvey 
recovery in February 2018 in the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 
(P.L. 115-123), are not being properly allocated to provide the 
greatest relief to the hardest hit and neediest populations. 
Therefore, the Committee directs HUD to conduct a review of 
state action plans and the criteria used for the distribution 
of the CDBG--MIT funds for Hurricane Harvey relief with 
particular focus on Congressional intent for the funding and 
the impact such plans have on minority and low-income 
communities who have suffered from repeated flooding events. 
The Committee directs HUD to provide a report to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations on its findings not later 
than 120 days after enactment of this Act.
    Community project funding (CPF) grants.--From within funds 
provided for the Community Development Fund for the EDI 
program, the Committee recommends up to $935,500,000 for CPF 
grants to finance a variety of targeted housing, economic, and 
community development investments. A detailed list of projects 
is located in the table titled ``Incorporation of Community 
Project Funding'' located at the end of this report.

    The Section 108 loan guarantee program is a source of 
variable and fixed-rate financing for communities undertaking 
projects eligible under the CDBG program.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation continues the Section 108 loan 
guarantee program as a borrower-paid subsidy program, and 
therefore recommends providing no budget authority, but 
provides a limit on guaranteed loan volume of $300,000,000.

    The HOME Investment Partnerships Program provides block 
grants to participating jurisdictions (states and units of 
general local government) to undertake activities that expand 
the supply of affordable housing. HOME block grants are 
distributed based on formula allocations. Upon receipt of these 
Federal funds, state and local governments develop a housing 
affordability strategy to acquire, rehabilitate, or construct 
new affordable housing, or to provide rental assistance to 
eligible families.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $1,850,000,000 for activities 
funded under this account, an increase of $500,000,000 over 
fiscal year 2021. HOME is the largest Federal block grant to 
state and local governments designed exclusively to create 
affordable housing for low-income households and is therefore a 
crucial tool in the effort to address homelessness in this 
country. HOME has invested $38,100,000,000 since 1992 to help 
build and preserve about 1.33 million affordable homes, of 
which over 546,000 were for new homebuyers, 256,000 were for 
owner-occupied rehabilitated housing, and over 530,000 were new 
and rehabilitated rental units, and to provide direct rental 
assistance to more than 389,000 families. This investment has 
leveraged over $158,000,000,000 in other public and private 
funds.
    In addition, the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA) 
(Public Law 117-2) included $5,000,000,000 for the HOME 
Investment Partnerships program to address homelessness.
    FirstHOME down payment assistance.--The Committee believes 
that homeownership is an important and proven method of 
building wealth, however the required down payment and closing 
costs can be significant financial hindrances to potential 
first-time homebuyers. Therefore, the Committee includes 
$50,000,000 for down payment assistance to support sustainable 
homeownership among first-generation, first-time homebuyers. To 
improve the likelihood that the terms and conditions of a 
mortgage are well-matched with the personal and financial 
circumstances of an individual before a home purchase and 
throughout homeownership, the Committee encourages the 
Department to refer first-time homebuyers to utilize HUD-
approved housing counseling services.
    Energy and water efficiency and resilience.--The Committee 
acknowledges that the HOME regulation, 24 CFR 92.251, requires 
grantees to construct housing according to property standards 
that mitigate against the impact of disasters such as 
earthquakes, wildfires, floods, and windstorms. However, the 
Committee believes the Department can do more to improve the 
longevity and resiliency of HUD assisted housing and directs 
the Department to promulgate regulations updating its property 
standards for HOME to reduce carbon pollution, increase energy 
and water efficiency, and increase resilience to natural 
hazards. The Department is directed to brief the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations on its efforts within 180 
days of enactment of this Act.
    Requirements for rental assistance.--The Committee 
recognizes many families do not qualify for the HOME program 
because their combined income marginally exceeds 60 percent of 
the area median income. The Committee recognizes the need for 
affordable housing for low- and moderate-income families and 
encourages the Department to work with HOME grantees to 
leverage partnerships with other housing providers to identify 
income-eligible housing options for income-ineligible 
households and to brief the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations within one year of enactment of this Act on the 
extent to which partnerships and referrals can be improved.

        SELF-HELP AND ASSISTED HOMEOWNERSHIP OPPORTUNITY PROGRAM

 
 
 
Appropriation, fiscal year 2021.......................       $60,000,000
Budget request, fiscal year 2022......................        60,000,000

    Appropriation, fiscal year 2021...................        +5,000,000
    Budget request, fiscal year 2022..................        +5,000,000
 

    The self-help and assisted homeownership opportunity 
program account funds several programs. The self-help 
homeownership opportunity program (SHOP) supports low-income 
homeownership by providing funding to non-profit organizations 
and consortia that utilize the sweat-equity model to build 
housing for first-time homeowners. Funds are distributed 
through grants for land acquisition and improvements associated 
with developing new, quality housing for low-income persons, 
including those living in colonias. This account also funds the 
capacity building for affordable housing and community 
development program, known as section 4, and assistance to 
rural communities, as authorized by the HUD Demonstration Act 
of 1993 (P.L. 103-120), which provides grants to build and 
expand the capacity of non-profit organizations to develop 
affordable housing and carry out community development 
activities that benefit low-income persons. In addition, this 
account funds the veterans housing rehabilitation and 
modification pilot program, as authorized by the Carl Levin and 
Howard P. ``Buck'' McKeon National Defense Authorization Act 
for Fiscal Year 2015 (P.L. 113-291), which awards grants to 
non-profit organizations to assist in the rehabilitation and 
modification of the primary residence of veterans who have 
disabilities or low-incomes.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation provides $65,000,000 for the 
self-help and assisted homeownership opportunity program 
account. The following table provides funding levels for 
activities within this account.

    Section 4 capacity building.--HUD awards section 4 funding 
competitively to a limited number of non-profit organizations 
which work to build and expand the capacity of community 
development corporations (CDCs) and community housing 
development organizations (CHDOs). CDCs and CHDOs then 
undertake affordable housing and community development 
activities, such as financing small businesses, revitalizing 
commercial corridors, and addressing local health care, 
childcare, education, and safety needs, in low- and moderate-
income urban and rural communities. The Committee notes that 
the section 4 program was highlighted during its March 25, 2021 
hearing on Creating Equitable Communities through 
Transportation and Housing as a key program for promoting 
equitable development and housing production by fostering 
bottom-up solutions and empowering community organizations. 
Further, the Committee understands that every $1 of section 4 
funding leverages more than $20 in public and private 
investments, which is much more than the program requirement 
that each dollar awarded be matched by $3, and continues to 
support programs that leverage additional investments.
    Multiyear agreements.--The Committee appreciates the 
Department's proposal to improve grant management and execution 
for the section 4 program through the use of multiyear 
agreements. The Committee notes that a similar change was made 
for the housing counseling assistance program, and has been 
implemented with positive results for HUD and grantees. While 
the use of multiyear agreements, subject to the availability of 
annual appropriations, could be beneficial to HUD and grantees 
of the section 4 program, more information is needed by the 
Committee on how such multiyear agreements would be implemented 
in order to fully evaluate this proposal and its potential 
impact on grantees. Therefore, the Committee directs HUD to 
develop an implementation plan for the use of multiyear 
agreements for the section 4 program, to consult with 
potentially impacted grantees, and to submit the implementation 
plan to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations no 
later than 180 days after enactment of this Act.

    Budget request, fiscal year 2022..................       -80,000,000
 

    Homeless assistance grants provide funding for programs 
under title IV of the McKinney Act, as amended by the Homeless 
Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing (HEARTH) 
Act of 2009. HEARTH Act programs include the continuum of care 
(CoC) competitive grants, the emergency solutions grants (ESG) 
program, and the rural housing stability grants program.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $3,420,000,000 for homeless 
assistance grants, to remain available until September 30, 
2024. This level of funding is an increase of $420,000,000 from 
fiscal year 2021 and includes $225,000,000 for new CoC grants. 
The Committee recommendation includes not less than 
$290,000,000 for emergency solutions grants and not less than 
$52,000,000 to provide housing and services for survivors of 
domestic violence, equal to fiscal year 2021. The 
recommendation also includes up to $92,000,000 for grants to 
comprehensively serve youth experiencing homelessness, of which 
up to $10,000,000 is for technical assistance to improve 
service delivery for youth experiencing homelessness.
    These investments in homeless assistance grants taken 
together with the new investment of $1,000,000,000 for vouchers 
targeted to individuals currently experiencing homelessness, 
including veterans and survivors of domestic violence, and a 
$500,000,000 increase to the HOME investment partnerships 
program to increase the supply of affordable housing, represent 
a major step forward by this Act in supporting efforts to 
reduce homelessness across the nation.
    Addressing the needs of survivors of domestic violence, 
sexual violence, and stalking.--The Committee recommendation 
includes not less than $52,000,000 for rapid re-housing and 
supportive services projects for survivors of domestic 
violence, sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking. The 
Committee again recommends that the Department and CoCs partner 
with providers, including service providers, that have 
experience in delivering trauma-specific and culturally 
appropriate care to survivors.
    Homelessness in California.--The Committee is aware of the 
complex challenges California faces with its affordable housing 
crisis and homelessness, which has only been exacerbated by the 
COVID-19 pandemic. The Committee commends all stakeholders in 
California for their work to reduce homelessness during these 
difficult times. The Committee encourages the Secretary to 
exercise all existing authorities to work or partner with 
entities, including the U.S. Interagency Council on 
Homelessness, the State of California, and local governments, 
to continue efforts to reduce homelessness, including through, 
but not limited to, construction of transitional housing, 
permanent supportive housing, and emergency shelters, as well 
as wrap-around services, such as substance abuse programs and 
mental health services, for individuals and families 
experiencing homelessness.
    Annual homeless assessment report (AHAR) to Congress.--The 
Committee continues to be concerned that the AHAR does not 
include data on homelessness in the U.S. territories, including 
Puerto Rico. The Committee encourages the Department to take 
all reasonable steps to collect and publish homelessness 
estimates for these jurisdictions in forthcoming versions of 
the AHAR, in the same manner that such data is collected and 
published for states and the District of Columbia. The 
Committee also urges the Department to work with grantees on 
data quality, and to provide technical assistance when 
necessary.
    COVID-19 impacts.--The Committee is aware of the diverse 
and complex housing and services needs that exist as a result 
of COVID-19. The Committee directs the Secretary, in 
consultation with the relevant Federal agencies, to within 180 
days of the enactment of this Act, submit a report to the House 
and Senate Committees on Appropriations on the impact COVID-19 
has had on individuals experiencing homelessness or housing-
instability, including youth, and ways to address and reduce 
long-term homelessness and housing instability that has been 
exacerbated by the economic crisis brought on by the pandemic.
    GAO study on hunger and homelessness.--The Committee is 
concerned about the short and long-term effects of hunger and 
homelessness on people in America, including the 172,000 
individuals in families with children that were experiencing 
homelessness in 2020. Hunger or food insecurity can lead to 
poor mental and physical health, developmental delays, and even 
child mortality; and a person experiencing hunger is more 
likely to also experience housing instability or homelessness. 
The Committee understands that programs such as the emergency 
food and shelter grants program of the Federal Emergency 
Management Agency, as authorized by subtitle B of title III of 
the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act (42 U.S.C. 11341 et 
seq.), provide a shared benefit for addressing issues of food 
and housing insecurity. However, the Committee believes more 
should be done to leverage Federal resources in order to 
comprehensively address these issues. As such, the GAO is 
directed to identify and analyze the methods in effect on the 
date of the enactment of this Act for distributing Federal 
assistance to determine whether such current methods adequately 
address the needs of persons experiencing hunger and 
homelessness. Not later than 180 days after the enactment of 
this Act, GAO shall brief the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations on the preliminary findings of such study and 
provide a full report, including recommendations as to how the 
respective Federal agencies should revise such methods to 
adequately and accurately meet such needs, to the House and 
Senate Committees on a date established during such briefing. 
The Committee directs GAO to give special consideration to the 
ways in which funds are allocated to counties with high levels 
of homelessness and to counties with high levels of economic 
inequality.
    Comprehensive approaches to serving youth experiencing 
homelessness.--The Committee strongly believes that every CoC 
must provide safe, inclusive, and culturally appropriate 
services for youth at risk of or experiencing homelessness. To 
accomplish this goal, the recommendation provides up to 
$92,000,000 for projects dedicated to providing services to 
youth experiencing homelessness, including up to $10,000,000 
for technical assistance to help every CoC better serve youth 
at risk of or experiencing homelessness. This recommendation is 
intended to advance best practices learned in this 
demonstration through targeted training and technical 
assistance to help inform broader systems change.
    As part of its competitive youth demonstration process, the 
Committee supports that HUD places an emphasis on projects that 
can demonstrate community-wide authentic youth collaboration in 
strategy, design, and implementation; quality data collection, 
management, and utilization of youth experiencing homelessness; 
and collective ownership of a common goal to end youth 
homelessness as demonstrated by a coordinated plan with 
accountability to community-wide performance indicators. The 
Committee encourages HUD to ensure that youth demonstrations 
provide services and housing that are developmentally 
appropriate for young adults, including connections to 
education and employment support, and to provide services for 
youth in all four of the HUD categories of homelessness without 
a waiver. Further, as part of its data collection, HUD is 
encouraged to include separate outcome measures for youth aged 
25 and under, including families headed by youth aged 25 and 
under, and to gather data on social and emotional well-being, 
permanent connections, education and employment, and stable 
housing.
    The Committee applauds the Department's work to ensure that 
the voices of youth with experiences of homelessness are an 
integral part of a local community's application and planning 
process, and that youth are further integrated into HUD's own 
process for reviewing applications for the demonstration. The 
Secretary is encouraged to utilize models and practices that 
are informed by authentic youth engagement and shared decision-
making, which should include creating and maintaining youth 
advisory boards with participation by individuals with lived 
experiences of youth homelessness, providing board members 
support for their participation, and empowering such boards to 
inform youth demonstration coordinated community plans.
    Further, the Committee understands that a growing number of 
CoCs have identified a need to expand opportunities for youth 
but may not have the capacity to undertake the planning that is 
required to demonstrate an effective youth homelessness 
response model. The Department is directed to submit a report 
to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations, within 
180 days of enactment of this Act, on the ways HUD can increase 
the capacity of CoCs to comprehensively plan for and address 
homelessness among youth, including the cost of providing such 
assistance.
    Rural units.--The Committee notes that the Department has 
made great progress to expand housing for people experiencing 
homelessness. Housing options and where a person ultimately 
secures housing varies based on the market and person seeking 
housing, but some prefer living in tiny homes in rural 
communities. The Committee is aware that current Federal 
housing programs may limit a community's ability to secure 
Federal funding for the purchase and construction of rural, 
single unit, tiny homes for individuals experiencing 
homelessness, which could provide a pathway to stable housing 
for people exiting or experiencing homelessness. The Committee 
directs the Department to submit, within 180 days of enactment 
of this Act, a report detailing the legislative or regulatory 
changes that would be required to support such activities, on a 
pilot basis, and the feasibility and estimated cost of such 
activities. The report should be provided to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations, the House Committee on 
Financial Services, and Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, 
and Urban Affairs.
    Internet access in emergency shelters.--The Committee is 
concerned about the lack of internet access and capacity in 
emergency shelters and the impacts this has had on students 
living in such shelters, particularly throughout the COVID-19 
pandemic and remote learning requirements. The Committee notes 
that emergency solutions grants can be used to pay for the 
costs of carrying out operations and essential services, 
including the cost of internet service and devices that help 
deliver essential services to residents in emergency shelters. 
The Committee encourages the Secretary to issue guidance on how 
ESG can be leveraged to address the gaps in internet access or 
capacity in emergency shelters.
    Advancing nondiscrimination practices.--The Committee 
recognizes the role of local CoCs and community-based 
organizations in advancing nondiscrimination practices that 
support homelessness service providers in responding to the 
critical needs of transgender and LGBTQ people in America. The 
Committee supports these efforts and encourages HUD to work 
with these providers to overcome significant barriers to 
securing Federal funding, including lack of previous 
development experience, limited ability to secure matching 
funds, and limited support from local and state governments, 
among others.
    Equal Access.--The Committee recognizes the necessity of 
the Equal Access rule in helping transgender and non-gender 
conforming individuals seeking emergency housing and affirms 
their right to be housed safely, regardless of sexual 
orientation or gender identity. The Committee further 
recognizes HUD's efforts to investigate complaints of housing 
discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity 
through the Fair Housing Act. In previous years, such 
complaints have gone ignored, denying recourse, justice, and 
protection to transgender and non-gender conforming individuals 
seeking shelter. HUD is directed to prioritize investigating 
allegations of discrimination and misgendering against 
transgender and non-gender conforming individuals. HUD is also 
directed to prioritize outreach to such populations to raise 
awareness of their rights and protections under the Fair 
Housing Act, including options for filing a complaint.
    Serving vulnerable youth populations.--The Committee 
recognizes the challenges faced by vulnerable foster youth who 
face significantly higher risks of experiencing homelessness, 
domestic violence, and sex trafficking. The Committee provides 
annual funding under this heading to take local, community-
driven, and innovative approaches to ending housing insecurity 
and domestic violence. The Committee encourages HUD to 
diligently ensure that the CoC program continues to address all 
populations, including vulnerable youth in foster care and 
youth who have aged out of foster care.
    Mental health support for youth.--LGBTQ youth who 
experienced housing instability reported considering suicide at 
twice the rate and attempted suicide at more than three times 
the rate of LGBTQ youth who had not experienced housing 
instability. LGBTQ youth who experience housing instability 
were on average younger, transgender or non-gender conforming, 
Hispanic or a racial minority, and from families with low-
income. Youth who experienced housing instability also reported 
higher rates of discrimination and physical threats or harm 
related to their sexual orientation or gender identity. To this 
end, the Committee supports projects that facilitate mental 
health support for LGBTQ youth by working with specialty 
partners to provide educational resources to youth experiencing 
housing instability and providing the necessary technology for 
youth to confidentially access mental health services in times 
of crisis.
    Renewal calculation.--The Committee is aware that the CoC 
application process takes into account the estimated number and 
sizes of units for proposed projects and is used in the 
Department's determination of grant amount eligibility. 
Grantees have the ability to make changes to unit sizes by 
submitting to HUD an amendment to an existing grant agreement 
or by revising estimated needs through the renewal process in 
order to use grant amounts to support such units. The Committee 
encourages the Department to continue working with grantees 
through the renewal and grant agreement process to ensure grant 
amounts reflect the unit size under lease.

Recommended in the bill...............................    14,010,000,000
Bill compared with:
    Appropriation, fiscal year 2021...................      +545,000,000
    Budget request, fiscal year 2022..................       -50,000,000
 

    The project-based rental assistance (PBRA) account provides 
a rental subsidy to private landlords tied to a specific 
housing unit so that the properties themselves, rather than the 
individual living in the unit, remain subsidized. PBRA provides 
safe, stable, and affordable housing to over 1,200,000 low-
income and very-low income households at approximately 17,000 
multifamily housing properties each year. Funding provided 
through this account supports the renewal of expiring project-
based contracts, including section 8, moderate rehabilitation, 
and single room occupancy contracts; amendments to section 8 
project-based contracts; and administrative costs for contract 
administration.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation provides $14,010,000,000 for 
the project-based rental assistance account to support the 
annual renewals and amendments of project-based contracts. Of 
the total funds provided, $400,000,000 is for advance 
appropriations, $355,000,000 is for performance-based contract 
administrators (PBCAs), $30,000,000 is for service coordinators 
for the elderly, and $10,000,000 is for tenant education and 
outreach, which includes tenant organizing activities, capacity 
building and technical assistance, and access to community 
services.
    PBCAs.--The Department suspended PBCA management and 
occupancy reviews from 2011 to 2016 in response to litigation 
filed against the Department over the procurement process. The 
Committee is troubled by the findings in the HUD OIG report 
2020-FW-0001 indicating that this suspension resulted in owners 
not meeting contract requirements and HUD incurring more than 
$5,600,000 in questionable costs. Furthermore, the Department's 
lack of monitoring resulted in ongoing compliance issues which 
have resulted in the physical deterioration of some properties 
and put the health and safety of residents at risk. The HUD OIG 
report demonstrates the important role PBCAs play in providing 
oversight and ensuring safety for residents. The Committee 
reiterates its concern about the Department's PBCA solicitation 
procedures, which have resulted in litigation, and due to the 
contract structure have increased costs and created the 
potential for excessive profits. While HUD worked with PBCAs to 
reinstate management and occupancy reviews in 2016 and extended 
annual contributions contracts for existing PBCAs to prevent 
further disruptions to program operations, the Committee notes 
that the annual contributions contracts are set to expire in 
January 2022. The Committee understands that HUD is working to 
develop a new solicitation for PBCA contracts that takes into 
account decisions by the Federal Circuit and Court of Appeals, 
complies with the Competition in Contracting Act, and meets 
requirements under the Federal Acquisition Regulations. The 
Committee reiterates that it is HUD's responsibility to 
implement a new competition and award procedure that includes 
stakeholder comments, full and open competition, and is 
compliant with all Federal laws and regulatory requirements. 
The Committee is also aware of the impact that COVID-19 may 
have on the capacity of PBCAs and stakeholders to respond to 
future contract or award opportunities and encourages HUD to 
take this into consideration.
    Reimbursement delays.--The Committee notes with 
disappointment that the Department has not submitted a report 
required by House Report 116-452 providing information on PHAs 
which converted housing units under the rental assistance 
demonstration program to be funded through PBRA and are 
experiencing late payments. The Committee directs HUD to 
complete this report and submit it to the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations no later than 30 days after 
enactment of this Act.

                        HOUSING FOR THE ELDERLY

 
 
 
Appropriation, fiscal year 2021.......................      $855,000,000
Budget request, fiscal year 2022......................       928,000,000
Recommended in the bill...............................     1,033,000,000

    Budget request, fiscal year 2022..................      +105,000,000
 

    The Housing for the Elderly (Section 202) program provides 
eligible private, non-profit organizations with capital grants 
to finance the acquisition, rehabilitation or construction of 
housing intended for low-income, elderly people. In addition, 
the program provides project-based rental assistance contracts 
(PRAC) to support operational costs for units constructed under 
the program.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee provides $1,033,000,000 for Housing for the 
Elderly, to remain available until September 30, 2025, which 
will fully fund contract renewals and amendments. Within the 
total amount provided, up to $125,000,000 is provided for 
service coordinators and the continuation of congregate 
services grants to provide supportive services for residents, 
which will fully fund the renewal of approximately 1,600 
existing Service Coordinator and Congregate Housing Services 
grants plus new awards that will be determined based on the 
results of the 2021 Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO). This 
recommendation provides $205,000,000 for new construction of 
affordable senior housing, including up to $10,000,000 for 
intergenerational housing. This will provide for approximately 
2,250 new units for seniors. To further the goal of making HUD-
assisted properties more energy efficient and more resilient to 
extreme weather events, the bill allows the Secretary to give 
preference to projects that promote water and energy efficiency 
or seek to increase resilience to natural hazards. The 
Committee directs the Department to provide a report to the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations within 180 days 
of enactment of this Act on ways the Department can further the 
goals of energy efficiency and resiliency in Section 202 
housing.
    Investments in new construction.--The Committee 
recommendation includes $205,000,000 for new capital advances 
to address the acute shortage of affordable housing for 
seniors. From fiscal years 2018-2021, the Committee provided a 
total of $298,000,000 in funds for new construction. To date, 
the Department has only awarded a total of $51,647,750 for 18 
awards to create an estimated 1,100 units for very low-income 
seniors, and a significant portion of funds have yet to be made 
available. The Committee directs the Department to make all 
remaining funding provided in fiscal years 2018, 2019, 2020, 
and 2021 available within 60 days of enactment of this Act, and 
to award that funding within 180 days of enactment of this Act.
    Continuation of the Integrated Wellness in Supportive 
Housing (IWISH) demonstration.--The Committee directs the 
Department to provide an update to the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations on the IWISH demonstration within 
60 days of enactment of this Act.
    Intergenerational housing.--The Committee recognizes the 
critical need to provide housing opportunities for grandparents 
raising grandchildren in high poverty urban and rural areas. 
This need has only increased due to the opioid crisis. The 
Committee provides up to $10,000,000 to expand the supply of 
intergenerational dwelling units as described in the Legacy Act 
(P.L. 108-186).

                 HOUSING FOR PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES

 
 
 
Appropriation, fiscal year 2021.......................      $227,000,000
Budget request, fiscal year 2022......................       272,000,000
Recommended in the bill...............................       352,000,000
Bill compared with:
    Appropriation, fiscal year 2021...................      +125,000,000
    Budget request, fiscal year 2022..................       +80,000,000
 

    The Housing for Persons with Disabilities (Section 811) 
program provides eligible private, non-profit organizations 
with capital grants to finance the acquisition, rehabilitation 
or construction of supportive housing for disabled persons and 
provides project-based rental assistance (PRAC) to support 
operational costs for such units.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee provides $352,000,000 for Section 811 
activities, which will fully fund project rental assistance and 
project assistance contract renewals and amendments, to remain 
available until September 30, 2025. The recommendation also 
includes $160,000,000 for new capital advances and project 
rental assistance contracts to increase the availability of 
affordable housing for persons with disabilities. To further 
the goal of making HUD-assisted properties more energy 
efficient and more resilient to extreme weather events, the 
bill allows the Secretary to give preference to projects that 
promote water and energy efficiency or seek to increase 
resilience to natural hazards. The Committee directs the 
Department to provide a report to the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations within 180 days of enactment of 
this Act on ways the Department can further the goals of energy 
efficiency and resiliency in Section 811 housing. The 
recommendation continues to include bill language allowing 
funds to be used for inspections and analysis of data by HUD's 
REAC program office.
    Investments in new construction.--The Committee 
recommendation includes $160,000,000 for new capital advances 
and project rental assistance contracts to increase the 
availability of affordable housing for persons with 
disabilities. This will provide for approximately 1,800 new 
affordable housing units for persons with disabilities. From 
fiscal years 2018-2021, the Committee provided a total of 
$206,755,00 for capital advances and project rental assistance 
contracts. Thus far, the Department has issued Notices of 
Funding Availability (NOFA) or Notices of Funding Opportunity 
(NOFO) for $112,000,000, but final awards have yet to be made. 
The Committee directs the Department to expeditiously make all 
remaining funding provided in fiscal years 2018, 2019, 2020, 
and 2021 available within 60 days of enactment of this Act and 
to award that funding within 180 days of enactment of this Act.
    Importance of supportive services.--House Report 116-06 and 
House Report 116-452 directed the Department to provide a 
report on: vacancy rates and wait lists (by state); how Section 
811-funded projects are partnering with service providers, 
including state health and human services departments and 
Medicaid agencies to provide access to community-based 
supportive services; and recommendations for ensuring that 
necessary supportive services for tenants are provided in all 
units. The Committee has yet to receive the report and 
reiterates the direction included in the past two fiscal years 
and expects the Department to provide this report to the House 
and Senate Committees on Appropriations within 30 days of 
enactment of this Act.
    Supportive services for persons with disabilities.--The 
Committee understands that supportive services for persons with 
disabilities may be provided through state health and human 
services and Medicaid agencies to support independent living. 
However, not all individuals living in Section 811 housing 
require the types of intensive services offered by those 
agencies, but may still need some level of support services or 
assistance. In order to help property owners provide additional 
support to aid in self-sufficiency and connection to community 
resources, the Committee recommendation allows excess residual 
receipts to be used to pay for supportive services, including a 
service coordinator, not currently covered by HUD or other 
governmental agencies in an area for which a Section 811 
household resides. The Department is further directed to issue 
guidance to property owners on how they can work with local 
supportive service agencies to leverage services for residents.

                     HOUSING COUNSELING ASSISTANCE

 
 
 
Appropriation, fiscal year 2021.......................       $77,500,000
Budget request, fiscal year 2022......................        85,900,000
Recommended in the bill...............................       100,000,000
Bill compared with:
    Appropriation, fiscal year 2021...................       +22,500,000
    Budget request, fiscal year 2022..................       +14,100,000
 

    The housing counseling assistance program, authorized under 
section 106 of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968, 
works with a nationwide network of housing counseling agencies 
and counselors to provide tools to current and prospective 
homeowners and renters so that they can make responsible 
choices to address their housing needs. Housing counseling 
services range from addressing homelessness and preventing 
foreclosures and evictions to planning for first-time home 
purchases. Housing counselors also provide assistance to 
victims of natural disasters.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    For fiscal year 2022, the Committee recommends $100,000,000 
for housing counseling assistance in the Office of Housing 
Counseling (OHC) and provides $20,000,000 for legal assistance 
grants in the Office of Policy Development and Research (PDR). 
These grants were initially funded in fiscal year 2021 under 
this heading and the fiscal year 2022 budget requests funding 
for these grants in OHC, but they are being administered by 
PDR.
    Home inspection.--The Committee reminds the Department to 
provide training to housing counseling agencies (HCAs) on the 
availability and importance of obtaining an independent home 
inspection (12 U.S.C. 1701x-1(d)) and directs the Department to 
remind HCAs of their obligation to provide each client, as part 
of the home purchase counseling process, with HUD Document 
92564-CN ``For Your Protection: Get a Home Inspection'' (12 
U.S.C. 1701x-1(a)).
    Limited English proficiency.--The Committee directs the OHC 
to remind HCAs of their obligation to provide meaningful 
support to limited English proficient communities, including 
recruiting, certifying, and training additional bi- and multi-
lingual housing counselors.
    Pre- and post-purchase homeownership counseling.--The 
excitement and enjoyment of homeownership, especially for 
first-time buyers, must not be overshadowed by the serious and 
continuous financial and legal responsibilities that are 
required of homeowners. Pre-purchase counseling is an 
opportunity for potential homeowners to assess their readiness 
to purchase a home and to learn about the process of obtaining 
a mortgage loan, the costs and responsibilities associated with 
maintaining a home, and basic personal finance matters, such as 
credit and budgeting. Post-purchase counseling completes a 
homeowner's education with an understanding of emergency 
preparedness, energy and water efficiency, fire and flood 
prevention, refinancing, and home sale. To improve the 
likelihood that terms and conditions of a mortgage is well-
matched with the personal and financial circumstances of an 
individual before home purchase and throughout homeownership, 
not less than $5,000,000 of the funds made available under this 
heading is for participants in the HOME down payment assistance 
program to receive pre- and post- purchase counseling from HUD-
approved housing counselors.
    Real estate wire fraud.--The Committee looks forward to the 
Department's report on its efforts to educate consumers on real 
estate fraud as required by the Consolidated Appropriations Act 
of 2021 (P.L. 116-260) and encourages the development of 
brochures and flyers for HCAs to distribute to clients.

    The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) provides mortgage 
insurance for the purchase, refinance, and rehabilitation of 
single-family homes. FHA mortgage insurance is designed to 
encourage lenders to make credit available to borrowers whom 
the conventional market perceives as bearing more risk, 
including first-time homebuyers, minorities, lower-income 
families, and residents of underserved areas.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    FHA loan limits.--The Committee encourages HUD to use the 
highest possible median house price to calculate FHA loan 
limits for metropolitan statistical areas (MSA) that 
experienced a drop in FHA loan limits of 20 percent or more 
when the Housing Economic Recovery Act went into effect. To 
qualify, MSAs must be at least 1,300 square miles or more in 
land area.
    Small dollar loans.--The Committee looks forward to the 
Department's report on single-family mortgage insurance 
policies, practices, and products for mortgages having an 
original principal obligation of $70,000 or less as required by 
the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 (P.L. 116-260).

    The FHA's general insurance and special risk insurance (GI 
and SRI) program account includes 17 different programs 
administered by FHA. The GI fund includes a wide variety of 
insurance programs for special-purpose single and multifamily 
loans, including loans for property improvements, manufactured 
housing, multifamily rental housing, condominiums, housing for 
the elderly, hospitals, group practice facilities, and nursing 
homes. The SRI fund includes insurance programs for mortgages 
in older, declining urban areas that would not be otherwise 
eligible for insurance, mortgages with interest reduction 
payments, and mortgages for experimental housing and for high-
risk mortgagors who would not normally be eligible for mortgage 
insurance without housing counseling.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    Housing finance agency risk sharing.--The Committee notes 
the HUD Office of Multifamily Housing Programs' intention to 
use its administrative authority under section 542(c) of P.L. 
102-550 (12 U.S.C. 1707) to enter into risk-sharing 
arrangements to help state and local housing finance agencies 
provide more insurance and credit for multifamily loans. The 
Committee appreciates that the Department has recognized the 
importance that section 542(c) has played in development of 
affordable multifamily housing.

    Title V of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1970, 
as amended, directs the Secretary of the Department of Housing 
and Urban Development to undertake programs of research, 
evaluation, and reports relating to the Department's mission 
and programs. These functions are carried out internally and 
through grants and contracts with industry, nonprofit research 
organizations, educational institutions, and through agreements 
with state and local governments and other Federal agencies. 
The research programs seek ways to improve the efficiency, 
effectiveness, and equity of HUD programs and to identify 
methods to achieve cost reductions. This appropriation is used 
to support HUD evaluation and monitoring activities and to 
conduct housing surveys. Finally, funds under this heading are 
used to support technical assistance activities to the various 
states, communities, and agencies that are charged with 
administering HUD's programs and funds.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $185,000,000 for this account. Of 
the amounts provided under this heading, $20,000,000 is for 
legal assistance grants. These grants were initially funded in 
fiscal year 2021 and included in the fiscal year 2022 budget 
request under the heading ``Housing Counseling Assistance'' but 
are administered by the Office of Policy Development and 
Research (PDR).
    The Committee recommends up to $81,500,000 for the core 
research programs, including market surveys, research support 
and dissemination, data acquisition, housing finance studies, 
research partnerships, and housing technology, and $20,000,000 
for cooperative agreements and research partnerships with 
historically Black colleges and universities and Hispanic 
serving institutions.
    The Committee recommends $24,100,000 for new and continuing 
studies and demonstration evaluations, including the:
           Mobility demonstration evaluation,
           Family options long term tracking study,
           Choice neighborhoods initiative,
           Stakeholder engagement for national 
        evictions database,
           Evaluation of the emergency housing voucher 
        program (EHV),
           Evictions legal assistance demonstration,
           Evictions among HUD-assisted households,
           PHA use of COVID-19 waivers and effects for 
        PHAs and tenants,
           FHA's role in closing the homeownership gap 
        and preserving homeownership during economic decline, 
        and
           Advanced research projects agency for 
        climate.
    Further, the Committee recommendation includes no less than 
$50,000,000 for all technical assistance, including assistance 
to grantees receiving allocations for SUPPORT Act activities 
under the heading ``Community Development Fund''. Of the funds 
made available under technical assistance, $7,500,000 shall be 
available on a competitive basis to non-profit or private 
sector organizations to provide technical assistance to units 
of general local government or non-profit organizations that 
serve distressed areas, prioritizing applications for 
jurisdictions containing persistent poverty census tracts where 
20 percent or more of the population living in poverty as 
measured by the 1990 and 2000 decennial census and the most 
recent five-year data series available from the American 
Community Survey of the Census Bureau, and any territory or 
possession of the United States. Such targeted technical 
assistance may include outreach efforts for local governments 
that have persistent poverty tracts in their jurisdiction.
    As in prior years, the Committee includes a provision 
prohibiting funds from being used for a doctoral dissertation 
research grant program. The Committee also includes a general 
provision in Title II that allows the Department to use prior 
year deobligated or unexpended funds made available to PDR for 
other research and evaluations. The Committee provides this 
authority under the condition that any new obligations are 
subject to the regular reprogramming procedures outlined in 
section 405 of this Act.
    Eviction prevention.--More than 6,300 individuals living in 
America are evicted every day--nearly one eviction every four 
minutes. Low-income women, especially women of color, are at 
particularly high risk of eviction. Only 10 percent of tenants 
in eviction cases have legal representation, while 90 percent 
of landlords do. The Committee recommendation provides 
$20,000,000 for competitive grants to nonprofit or governmental 
entities to provide legal assistance, including assistance 
related to pretrial activities, trial activities, post-trial 
activities, and alternative dispute resolution, at no cost to 
eligible low-income tenants at risk of or subject to eviction. 
The Committee also directs the Department to remind grantees 
that the ESG program can be used as a tool to prevent 
evictions.
    Higher education and community partnerships.--The Committee 
is aware that many localities across the country lack the 
staff, resources, or expertise to fully utilize the many 
opportunities available to them and supports the partnership 
and critical role that anchor institutions of higher education 
play in communities and in achieving the Department's mission. 
Of the amounts made available under this heading, up to 
$5,000,000 is available to competitively award a cooperative 
agreement for institutions of higher education or nonprofit 
entities that train and support institutions of higher 
education, to conduct research or provide technical assistance 
on matters related to economic opportunity, reducing 
homelessness, stable homeownership, disaster resiliency, 
equity, environmental and climate justice in housing, 
sustainable housing options and practices, expanding services 
focused on social determinants of health, workforce 
development, or other areas that improve the long-term capacity 
of communities or otherwise address priorities of PDR. In 
addition, the Committee urges the Department to include funding 
for its Office of University Partnerships in its fiscal year 
2023 congressional budget justification.
    Thriving and sustainable communities.--Homebuyers and 
homebuilders are faced with limited access to financing, 
increasing building material costs, a limited pool of skilled 
labor, and restrictive land-use policies. Local zoning and 
planning policies can also prevent the integration of housing 
and transportation development, disconnecting communities from 
access to public transit, jobs, public services, and other 
necessities. The Committee provides funding within DOT to 
support the planning and revisioning of distressed and 
disconnected communities through the thriving communities 
initiative and directs that up to $5,000,000 of the amounts 
provided under this heading for technical assistance shall be 
used by HUD to work with DOT to ensure housing and 
infrastructure development is taken into consideration as part 
of this initiative. The Department is directed to brief the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on its progress 
no later than 90 days after enactment of this Act. The 
Committee further directs the Department to provide a report to 
the Committees within 270 days of enactment of this Act on ways 
the Department can work with local governments to foster reform 
and reduce barriers, including through the reform of existing 
building codes and zoning ordinances, to achieve affordable, 
economically vital, and sustainable communities and discourage 
inefficient land-use patterns.
    Broadband access for HUD-assisted households.--The 
Committee recognizes that broadband infrastructure barriers and 
high monthly costs result in HUD-assisted households often 
receiving inadequate access to internet and capacity not 
provided through a personal cellular device. Using amounts made 
available for core research programs, the Committee directs HUD 
to complete an analysis of the extent to which this problem 
exists, the results of which are to be made publicly available 
within one year of enactment of this Act. As part of this 
analysis, the Committee directs the Department to explore 
potential methods for providing high-quality, subsidized 
broadband to HUD-assisted households, including through the 
expansion of monthly utility subsidies to include broadband, 
and the cost for building such capacity. The Committee 
recognizes broadband access is a particularly urgent concern in 
many rural communities and directs that this analysis include 
options for expanding broadband access to HUD-assisted 
households in rural areas.
    Housing smart.--The Committee is aware of promising 
initiatives developed by nonprofit community groups in 
collaboration with local health systems and public housing 
agencies that are targeted at homeless and unstably housed 
individuals who are frequent users of expensive and relatively 
inefficient medical care provided by emergency departments at 
hospitals. These initiatives work across different areas of 
core competency to provide safe, affordable housing together 
with ancillary medical, behavioral, substance use disorder, 
nutritional, and employment or job training services. Some 
participants demonstrate significant improvements in their 
health, sustainable incomes, and reduced use of emergency and 
other expensive medical services. The Committee encourages the 
Department to support research to understand the cost 
effectiveness of such approach, and to coordinate such 
activities with the Department of Health and Human Services.
    Roofing and housing rehabilitation for seniors.--The 
Committee is concerned about the prospect of seniors not being 
able to afford roofing and housing rehabilitation, which could 
lead to unsafe living conditions that could lead to increased 
poverty for this vulnerable population. The Committee is 
troubled by the impact and cost burden that roof repair and 
housing rehabilitation may place on seniors, therefore, the 
Committee directs HUD to within 120 days of enactment of this 
Act report to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations 
on the estimated number of seniors that are unable to afford to 
have their homes reroofed and rehabilitated by geographical 
region.
    Affordable housing and child care.--The Committee remains 
concerned about the need to better integrate access to 
affordable housing and high-quality child care and notes that 
the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (P.L. 116-260) 
provided funding for a research collaboration with the 
Department of Health and Human Services to better promote and 
prioritize on-site child care supportive services for HUD-
assisted families. The Committee looks forward to reviewing the 
findings of this research collaboration and directs the 
Department to keep the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations apprised of its progress and any interim 
findings during the course of its assessment.
    Innovation in climate and resiliency.--Based on data from 
the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, climate 
projections for cities across the country indicate they will 
continue to get hotter and wetter for decades to come, even 
under emissions reductions scenarios. Hotter temperatures and 
the increased frequency and severity of storms will continue to 
harm public health, damage homes and infrastructure, and result 
in billions of dollars in clean-up and recovery costs. These 
impacts have not and will continue to not be felt equally, with 
low-income individuals and people of color more at risk of 
being harmed, and less likely to fully recover after disruptive 
events. These dire projections require a holistic adaptation 
and resiliency program to inform future development, identify 
critical vulnerabilities, and engage residents in efforts to 
increase community resiliency. Municipalities across the 
country have developed and are implementing interagency climate 
adaptation and resiliency plans to create more resilient cities 
through planning, development, and engagement. Adaptation and 
resilient strategies include updating zoning and land use 
requirements, as well as investments in flooding mitigation, 
tree planting, cool roof installation, and home weatherization, 
among other activities. The Department is directed to 
prioritize amounts provided under this heading for the Office 
of Innovation for climate adaptation and resiliency innovation.
    Housing innovation.--The Committee recognizes the important 
work that the Office of Innovation does to advance solutions to 
make housing more affordable and resilient. The Committee 
directs the Office of Innovation to establish a pilot program 
that challenges the affordable housing industry to 
substantially drive down the cost of affordable housing design 
and production, which shall include an evaluation of vertically 
integrated modular housing development.
    Eviction counseling.--Nearly one million households in the 
United States were evicted in 2016 and the Committee is 
concerned about the short- and long-term effects of these 
evictions on families and individuals. The Committee provides 
funding for a new pilot study to explore the incidence of 
evictions among HUD-assisted households in order to understand 
eviction trends and to inform a larger study of evictions in 
HUD-assisted housing. The Committee directs HUD to work with 
housing counselors to identify the predominant causes of 
evictions and to report to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations within 120 days of enactment of this Act on 
efforts to improve their processes, including the 
identification of any barriers to the collection of data on at-
risk households, as well as to augment the services offered by 
housing counselors.
    Demolition of abandoned properties.--Concentrations of 
abandoned properties negatively impact the long-term viability 
of the communities in which they are located and undermine the 
potential positive impacts of other infrastructure 
improvements. When undertaken strategically and directed by a 
coherent long-term strategy for addressing vacant and abandoned 
structures, demolition of abandoned properties can alleviate 
these challenges. The Department is directed to examine 
property demolition programs, including the neighborhood 
stabilization program, and report to the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations within 180 days of enactment of 
this Act on the feasibility and reasonableness of these types 
of programs.
    Digitizing housing code violations.--The Committee is 
troubled by reports of deplorable living conditions found in 
HUD-subsidized properties and properties in the rental market 
in cities and towns that receive funding through the community 
development block grant (CDBG) program. The scope of this issue 
spans geographic regions and highlights systemic problems in 
the affordable housing rental market. Individuals and families 
have the right to know if the home they may be renting has had 
repeated housing code violations without having to file a 
Freedom of Information Act request.
    The Committee directs the Department to complete a 
feasibility study on the extent to which HUD can help cities 
and localities digitize housing codes for public view, 
including the associated costs. The Department shall submit the 
feasibility study to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations within 120 days of enactment of this Act.
    Fair market rents.--The Committee is aware of the concerns 
regarding the data used to calculate fair market rents and 
directs the Department to work with its authorizing 
congressional committees to develop statutory flexibilities for 
operating the voucher program in such a way that vouchers are 
usable in rapidly rising rental markets. The Committee further 
directs the Department to study the correlation of rapidly 
rising rental markets and areas, defined as high-growth by the 
latest census data, and report to the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations on its findings within 120 days of 
enactment of this Act.
    Factory-built housing.--As noted throughout this report, 
the Committee supports expanding affordable housing. HUD is 
responsible for research into strategies that increase 
efficiency in housing manufacturing. The Committee urges HUD to 
continue research to identify areas that could benefit from 
factory-built housing, regulatory barriers to factory-built 
housing, and impacts of those barriers on communities.

    The Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity (OFHEO) is 
responsible for implementation, enforcement, administration, 
development, and public understanding of federal fair housing 
policies and laws. OFHEO manages fair housing grants, 
investigates discrimination complaints, conducts civil rights 
compliance reviews, and ensures civil rights protections are 
included in HUD programs, with the overall goal of preventing 
housing discrimination.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The bill provides $85,000,000 for OFHEO. The following 
table provides the funding for various fair housing activities 
undertaken by the office:

------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Of the funds provided for FHIP, not less than $10,400,000 
is for education and outreach programs, and not less than 
$3,700,000 is for fair housing organization initiatives.
    In addition, the American Rescue Plan Act, 2021 (P.L. 117-
2) included $19,400,000 for Fair Housing Activities to address 
fair housing inquiries, complaints, investigations, education 
and outreach activities, and costs of delivering or adapting 
services, during or relating to COVID-19.
    Application of the Fair Housing Act.--The Committee 
recognizes that the Departments of Justice (DOJ) and HUD are 
jointly responsible for the enforcement of the Fair Housing 
Act. In 2016, these Departments issued a joint statement on the 
Fair Housing Act's requirements as it relates to state and 
local land use practices and zoning laws. The Committee directs 
HUD to conduct additional legal analysis, in consultation with 
DOJ, to determine the fullest extent to which the Fair Housing 
Act can be used to determine when state and local zoning and 
land use policy violates Federal law and to report its findings 
to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations.
    Tester coordinator training.--The Committee directs the 
Department to operate a comprehensive tester coordinator 
training program and to provide ongoing training, technical 
assistance, and resources to test coordinators working in fair 
housing organizations. Upon the publication of the fiscal year 
2022 tester training NOFO, the Department is directed to 
clearly outline grantee eligibility requirements, provide 
thorough guidance, and indicate any changes from the previous 
NOFO so prospective grantees can plan their application 
strategies with sufficient notice before the submission 
deadline. HUD shall ensure technical assistance remains an 
eligible use of funds in the fiscal year 2022 tester training 
NOFO. Additionally, the Department shall not merge existing 
tester coordinator training with other fair housing activities, 
including the national fair housing training academy.

            Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes


                         LEAD HAZARD REDUCTION

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

 
 
 
Appropriation, fiscal year 2021.......................      $360,000,000
Budget request, fiscal year 2022......................       400,000,000
Recommended in the bill...............................       460,000,000
Bill compared with:
    Appropriation, fiscal year 2021...................      +100,000,000
    Budget request, fiscal year 2022..................       +60,000,000
 

    The Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes 
(OLHCHH) is responsible for the administration of the lead-
based paint hazard reduction program authorized by title X of 
the Housing and Community Development Act of 1992. Through the 
healthy homes initiative (HHI), the office also addresses 
multiple housing-related hazards affecting the health of 
residents, particularly children. The office develops lead-
based paint regulations, guidelines, and policies applicable to 
HUD programs, and enforces the Lead Disclosure Rule issued 
under title X. For both lead-related and healthy homes issues, 
the office designs and administers programs for grants, 
training, research, demonstration, and education.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation includes $460,000,000 for the 
OLHCHH. Of this amount, the Committee provides $85,000,000 for 
the healthy homes initiative and directs the Department to fund 
activities aimed at reducing incidences of asthma, mold, noise, 
pests, and radon. The recommendation also includes $60,000,000 
for a housing choice voucher lead risk assessment demonstration 
and allows up to $2,000,000 to be transferred from the OLHCHH 
to PDR for research and studies.
    HCV lead risk assessment demonstration.--The Committee 
notes the value of the OLHCHH as a tool to eliminate childhood 
lead poisoning. Lead risk assessments are essential in halting 
exposure to lead-based paint hazards, which has a devastating 
long-term impact on children's health. The Committee recognizes 
the need for increased lead inspection standards within HCV 
units occupied by a child under age 6. The Department continues 
to assert that it does not have the statutory authority to 
require more than a visual lead assessment in HCV units, and 
those limited actions are only required when a child under age 
6 resides or is expected to reside in the unit.
    According to a recent GAO report (GAO-21-325), voucher 
holders lived in 2.1 million housing units as of year-end 2019. 
Of these units, 1.1 million, or 53 percent, were built before 
1978--the year the United States banned the use of lead paint 
in housing. Of these pre-1978 units, 171,000, or 16 percent, 
were occupied by families that included about 229,000 young 
children. Given the estimated prevalence of young children 
living in voucher-supported housing units that may be exposed 
to the risk of the lead, the Committee provides $60,000,000 for 
a HCV lead risk assessment demonstration and directs HUD to 
provide the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations with 
a report on the implementation and findings of this 
demonstration, including whether public housing agencies can 
effectively incorporate a lead risk assessment or a lead hazard 
screening into the HCV unit inspection process while preserving 
rental housing availability and affordability.
    Lead in drinking water.--The Committee encourages the 
Secretary to work in coordination with the EPA's programs to 
mitigate sources of lead exposure from water from the public 
water supply, ambient air, and industrial emissions.
    Multiple health hazards in homes.--The HHI strives to 
protect children and their families from housing-related health 
and safety hazards. Among these health and safety concerns are 
mold, noise, allergens, asthma, pesticides, and volatile 
organic compounds. The presence of these multiple hazards 
exacerbates existing health problems and can lead to new 
physical and psychological ones. The Committee directs the 
OLHCHH to give homes with multiple hazards priority 
consideration.
    Radon.--The Committee looks forward to an update from the 
Department as required by the Consolidated Appropriations Act 
of 2021 (P.L. 116-260) on two outstanding commitments outlined 
in the Federal Radon Action Plan.

                      Information Technology Fund


                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

 
 
 
Appropriation, fiscal year 2021.......................      $300,000,000
Budget request, fiscal year 2022......................       323,200,000
Recommended in the bill...............................       278,200,000
Bill compared with:
    Appropriation, fiscal year 2021...................       -21,800,000
    Budget request, fiscal year 2022..................       -45,000,000
 

    The appropriations pays for the information technology (IT) 
systems that support departmental programs and operations, 
including mortgage insurance, housing assistance and grant 
programs, as well as core financial and general operations.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    Native advantage.--The Committee notes that the Department 
has tried over several years with limited success to deploy an 
IT system for the Office of Native American Programs' (ONAP) 
section 184 program and to implement corrective actions to the 
HUD OIG recommendations identified in reports 2015-LA-0002, 
2018-LA-0801, and 2018-OE-0004. In 2020, the OCIO and ONAP 
determined that replicating the FHA catalyst IT system for the 
section 184 and section 184A programs could address an 
immediate need to transition a paper-based process to an 
electronic solution in the face of COVID-19, as well as the 
long-term needs for a functional IT system. The Committee 
supports the OCIO's efforts to develop the native advantage IT 
system, its plans to add additional functionality to better 
support ONAP's loan guarantee process, and once completed 
support the full loan life cycle. The Committee directs the 
OCIO to continue to work collaboratively with ONAP on native 
advantage to ensure this IT system meets the needs of the 
section 184 and section 184A programs and addresses the 
remaining open HUD OIG recommendations.
    Performance plans and budget request.--The Committee looks 
forward to the performance plans and quarterly updates on the 
PIH and FHA IT modernization initiatives required by the 
Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 (P.L. 116-260) and 
continued discussion with the Department about its development, 
modernization, and enhancement needs. The Committee directs the 
OCIO to include in its fiscal year 2023 budget request for the 
IT Fund a detailed cost and schedule of its information 
technology activities. For each activity, the OCIO shall 
provide the prior, current, and upcoming lifecycle stage, 
costs, and benefits; identify risks and mitigation plans; and 
procurement strategy.

    The Office of Inspector General (OIG) provides agency-wide 
audit and investigative functions to identify and correct 
management and administrative deficiencies that create 
conditions for waste, fraud, and mismanagement. The audit 
function provides internal audit, contract audit, and 
inspection services. Contract audits provide professional 
advice to agency contracting officials on accounting and 
financial matters relative to negotiation, award, 
administration, re-pricing, and settlement of contracts. 
Internal audits evaluate all facets of agency operations. 
Inspection services provide detailed technical evaluations of 
agency operations. The investigative function provides for the 
detection and investigation of improper and illegal activities 
involving programs, personnel, and operations.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $145,000,000 for the Office of 
Inspector General.
    The Committee recognizes the importance of the OIG's role 
in safeguarding against waste and fraud and upholding HUD as a 
principled and financially sound agency and therefore provides 
the OIG with funding for external audits. The congressionally 
mandated and self-initiated reports and investigations 
undertaken by the OIG continue to be extremely helpful to the 
Committee.

    The United States Access Board (Access Board) was 
established by section 502 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 
with the mission of promoting equality for people with 
disabilities through accessible design and the development of 
accessibility guidelines and standards for the built 
environment, transportation, communication, medical diagnostic 
equipment, and information technology.
    The Access Board is responsible for developing guidelines 
under the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Architectural 
Barriers Act, and the Communications Act, as well as for 
developing standards under the Rehabilitation Act for 
accessible electronic and information technology used by 
Federal agencies. The Access Board enforces the Architectural 
Barriers Act and provides training and technical assistance on 
its guidelines and standards. The Access Board serves on the 
election assistance commission's board of advisors and 
technical guidelines development committee to assist in 
developing voluntary guidelines for voting systems, including 
accessibility for people with disabilities. Additionally, the 
Access Board maintains a small research program that develops 
technical assistance materials and provides information needed 
for rulemaking.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $9,750,000 for the operations of 
the Access Board.
    Rulemakings.--The Committee recognizes that executive order 
13771, ``Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory 
Costs'', for the past four years hindered the Access Board's 
ability to proceed with vital rulemakings. The Committee is 
pleased that with the executive order now reversed by the new 
administration, the agency can continue its mission and 
continue with the Public Rights-of-Way Accessible Guidelines 
and Americans with Disabilities Act Guidelines for 
Transportation Vehicles rulemakings that have been put on hold 
for the last four years.

    Established in 1961, the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) 
is an independent agency, responsible for the regulation of 
ocean-borne transportation in the foreign commerce of the 
United States. The FMC monitors ocean common carriers, marine 
terminal operators, conferences, ports, and ocean 
transportation intermediaries to ensure they maintain just and 
reasonable practices. Among other activities, the FMC also 
maintains a trade monitoring and enforcement program, monitors 
the laws and practices of foreign governments and their impacts 
on shipping conditions in the U.S., and enforces special 
regulatory requirements as they apply to controlled carriers.
    The principal shipping statutes administered by the FMC are 
the Shipping Act of 1984 (46 U.S.C. 40101-44106), the Foreign 
Shipping Practices Act of 1988 (46 U.S.C. 42301-42307), section 
19 of the Merchant Marine Act, 1920 (46 U.S.C. 42101-42109), 
sections 2 and 3 of Public Law 89-777, and section 834 of the 
Frank LoBiondo Coast Guard Authorization Act of 2018 (P.L. 115-
282).

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation provides $31,398,000 for the 
FMC. Of the total funds provided, up to $577,781 is available 
for the Office of Inspector General.
    Staffing.--The Committee provides $525,000 above the budget 
request to support the hiring of additional full-time 
equivalents. The FMC may use these additional resources to 
further the statutorily established purpose of the FMC to 
``promote the growth and development of United States exports 
through competitive and efficient ocean transportation and by 
placing a greater reliance on the marketplace'' (46 U.S.C. 
40101(4)), including to support the Office of Consumer Affairs 
and Dispute Resolution Services (CADRS), Bureau of Enforcement 
(BOE), Area Representatives (ARs), Bureau of Trade Analysis, 
Office of the Secretary, the national shipper advisory 
committee, fact finding investigations, and for necessary 
support services. The Committee understands that the FMC has 
initiated a review of the CADRS' caseload to determine if 
additional resources would benefit U.S. exporters and importers 
and other supply chain participants. The Committee urges the 
FMC to conduct a similar review of the BOE. The FMC should use 
these assessments to help inform its hiring decisions. Further, 
the Committee directs the FMC to brief the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations no later than 60 days after 
enactment of this Act detailing its hiring plans for these 
additional resources.
    Shipping practices.--On March 31, 2020, the FMC initiated 
fact finding 29 in response to supply chain impacts related to 
COVID-19 and to help identify operational solutions to cargo 
delivery system challenges. The initial findings from fact 
finding 29 led the FMC to approve a supplemental order on 
November 20, 2020 to authorize a formal investigation to 
examine issues related to detention and demurrage practices, 
container return practices, and the availability of containers 
for export cargo and to determine if the policies and practices 
of vessel-operating common carries (VOCCs) violate section 
44102(c) of title 46, United States Code. The Committee 
understands that the FMC issued information demand orders to 
VOCCs and marine terminal operators (MTOs) on these practices 
and is in the process of reviewing the information received. 
Further, the FMC voted on May 19, 2021 to formally establish 
the national shipper advisory committee which was created by 
the Elijah E. Cummings Coast Guard Authorization Act of 2020 
(P.L. 116-283) for exporters and importers to advise the FMC on 
policies relating to the competitiveness, reliability, 
integrity, and fairness of the international ocean freight 
delivery system. The Committee directs the FMC to brief the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations, the House 
Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, and the Senate 
Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation no later 
than 90 days after enactment of this Act on the progress of 
fact finding 29 and its investigation, any subsequent 
enforcement actions, and an analysis on any additional 
resources and authorities the FMC may deem necessary as a 
result of the findings from fact finding 29.
    Further, the Committee notes that the fines and penalties 
that the FMC assessed in fiscal year 2020 totaled just $103, 
which is a significant decrease from $660,125 in fiscal year 
2019 and $1,108,194 in fiscal year 2018. The Committee 
encourages the FMC to use its existing authorities and 
enforcement tools to investigate and address instances in which 
VOCCs that are regulated under the Shipping Act of 1984 are 
engaging in unfair or unjust discriminatory practices, giving 
undue or unreasonable preferences, or unreasonably refusing to 
deal or negotiate. In addition, the Committee directs the FMC, 
through the CADRS, to continue to assist U.S. exporters and 
importers, ocean transportation intermediaries (OTIs), and 
truckers in engaging with VOCCs and MTOs, and, as requested, 
intercede on their behalf in disputes with such entities.
    Section 46106 of title 46, United States Code, requires the 
FMC to submit an annual report to Congress no later than April 
1 of each year. The Committee notes that the 59th Annual Report 
for Fiscal Year 2020 submitted to Congress on March 31, 2021 
provided details on the work of the CADRS through alternative 
dispute resolution, ombuds, and mediation services, the BOE and 
ARs through investigations and enforcement cases, and formal 
proceedings through investigations, private complaints, and 
litigation. In addition to providing such information for 
fiscal year 2021, the Committee directs the FMC to detail 
efforts across the agency to protect U.S. exporters and 
importers, OTIs, and truckers against unfair and unjust 
discriminatory practices, including instances where the CADRS 
responded to a request by a U.S. exporter or importer, OTI, or 
trucker for assistance with a commercial cargo matter, in the 
60th Annual Report for Fiscal Year 2021 which the FMC is to 
deliver to Congress no later than April 1, 2022 as required by 
section 46106 of title 46, United States Code.

    The Office of Inspector General (OIG) is an independent, 
objective unit responsible for detecting and preventing fraud, 
waste, abuse, and violations of law and for promoting 
efficiencies and effectiveness at Amtrak.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation provides $26,762,000 for the 
OIG. The recommendation will allow the OIG to undertake audits, 
evaluations, and investigations and will ensure effective 
oversight of Amtrak's programs and operations. The OIG's 
efforts have resulted in valuable reports and recommendations 
for the Committee and for Amtrak that have yielded cost savings 
and management improvements.
    COVID-19 oversight.--The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and 
Economic Security Act (CARES Act) (P.L. 116-136), Coronavirus 
Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 
(CRRSAA, P.L. 116-260), and American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 
(ARPA, P.L. 117-2) provided a combined $3,718,000,000 to Amtrak 
in supplemental funding in fiscal years 2020 and 2021 to 
support Amtrak's workforce, operations, and response to COVID-
19. The Committee appreciates the work done to date by the OIG 
to monitor and assess Amtrak's use, accounting, and reporting 
of this funding, issuing interim observations on the CARES Act 
on August 5, 2020, final observations on the CARES Act on 
December 15, 2020, and an assessment on CRRSAA on May 12, 2021. 
The Committee is pleased that Amtrak has established and 
implemented effective controls, has incorporated the OIG's 
suggestions for improving accountability and transparency, and 
overall has demonstrated good stewardship of this funding, 
according to the OIG. As Amtrak continues to implement CRRSAA 
and ARPA, the Committee directs the OIG to continue to monitor 
Amtrak's use, accounting, and reporting of this funding and any 
other authorized use of Federal funds provided to Amtrak in 
response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Further, the Committee 
directs the OIG to notify the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations of any anomalies it finds through its monitoring 
of CRRSSA and ARPA spending and any other authorized use of 
Federal funds provided to Amtrak in response to the COVID-19 
pandemic.

    The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is an 
independent federal agency charged by Congress with 
investigating every civil aviation accident in the United 
States, as well as significant accidents in other modes of 
transportation--including railroad, highway, marine, and 
pipeline--and issuing safety recommendations aimed at 
preventing future accidents.
    In addition to its investigatory duties, the NTSB is 
responsible for maintaining the government's database of civil 
aviation accidents and conducting special studies of 
transportation safety issues of national significance. 
Furthermore, in accordance with the provisions of international 
treaties, the NTSB supplies investigators to serve as U.S. 
accredited representatives for aviation accidents overseas 
involving U.S.-registered aircraft, or involving aircraft or 
major components of U.S. manufacture.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    Most wanted list.--The Committee appreciates the NTSB's 
effort to increase transparency in its selection of 
transportation safety issues for its annual most wanted list in 
response to the recommendations in GAO-20-395 and looks forward 
to GAO's review of these efforts.

    The Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation (NRC) was created 
by the Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation Act (title VI of 
the Housing and Community Development Amendments of 1978). The 
NRC now operates under the trade name ``NeighborWorks America'' 
and helps local communities establish working partnerships 
between residents and representatives of the public and private 
sectors. These partnership-based organizations are independent, 
tax-exempt, community-based nonprofit entities, often referred 
to as NeighborWorks organizations.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $185,000,000 
for fiscal year 2022, of which $5,000,000 is for a multi-family 
rental housing program.
    In addition, the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA) 
(Public Law 117-2) included $100,000,000 for NRC.
    Neighborhood revitalizations.--The Committee provides 
$25,000,000 for a competitive grant program to carry out 
neighborhood revitalization support activities in areas with 
concentrations of abandoned or distressed properties. The 
Committee directs that NRC brief the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations on its proposed competition 
guidelines no later than 180 days after enactment of this Act.
    Aging in place.--Due to the rising costs of long-term care 
and societal changes, the Committee continues to support aging 
in place programs that modify and improve older homes so that 
seniors may safely live in those homes for a longer period as 
they age. The Committee continues to encourage NRC to support 
training, counseling, and programs that assist seniors in 
sustainable aging in place and to identify the conflux of older 
housing stock, older-population states, and, in particular, 
older-population regions within those states and to invest 
robustly in those regions with aging in place housing programs.

    The Surface Transportation Board (STB) was created by the 
ICC Termination Act of 1995 (P.L. 104-88) and is the successor 
agency to the Interstate Commerce Commission. The STB is an 
economic regulatory and adjudicatory body charged by Congress 
with resolving railroad rate and service disputes and reviewing 
proposed railroad mergers, and the regulation of other surface 
transportation carriers, including the intercity bus industry 
and surface pipeline carriers, and household-good carriers. The 
Surface Transportation Board Reauthorization Act of 2015 (P.L. 
114-110) established the STB as a wholly independent agency.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommendation provides an appropriation of 
$39,152,000 for the STB. The STB is estimated to collect 
$1,250,000 in fees, which will offset the appropriation for a 
total program cost of $37,902,000.
    Cost-benefit analysis.--In March 2019, a petition was filed 
with the STB to institute a rulemaking to adopt procedural 
rules that would require a cost-benefit analysis in certain 
future STB rulemaking proceedings. In response, the STB 
reviewed the practices at other agencies, including independent 
agencies that, like the STB, are not statutorily required to 
have cost-benefit analysis procedural rules. In November 2019, 
the STB issued a solicitation of information to request 
comments from stakeholders on whether and how particular cost-
benefit analysis approaches might be more formally integrated 
into the STB's rulemaking process. The Committee continues to 
encourage the STB to thoroughly review and consider all 
comments received in response to the solicitation of 
information to determine the extent to which cost-benefit 
analysis would be helpful in ensuring that the economic 
consequences of certain significant rulemakings are fully 
evaluated and that the basis for any decisions are clear to 
stakeholders. If the STB decides to adopt a cost-benefit 
analysis procedure for significant rulemakings, then the 
Committee encourages the STB to request additional resources, 
as necessary, to ensure the STB has the staffing and expertise 
to undertake such cost-benefit analyses.
    On-time performance.--A significant obstacle to 
establishing new passenger rail service or adding frequencies 
is the ability to obtain reliable access to host railroad 
tracks. The Committee recognizes the challenges host railroads 
face in balancing the demands of passenger and freight trains, 
which can impact on-time performance. These challenges are 
regularly reflected in Amtrak's existing service. In fiscal 
year 2020, Amtrak reports that its long-distance trains were on 
time at stations 59.2 percent of the time, while its state-
supported trains were on time 84.5 percent of the time. 
Congress sought to address on-time performance through the 
Passenger Rail Investment and Improvement Act (PRIIA) of 2008 
(P.L. 110-432). The Committee is pleased that following several 
years of litigation in Federal court regarding PRIIA, FRA and 
Amtrak jointly developed proposed metrics and minimum standards 
for measuring the performance and service quality of intercity 
passenger train operations as required by section 207 of PRIIA, 
consulted with impacted stakeholders, and led to FRA issuing a 
final rule on November 16, 2020. The final rule establishes a 
customer on-time performance minimum standard of 80 percent for 
any two consecutive calendar quarters, establishes a certified 
schedule metric that addresses alignment with the customer on-
time performance metric and standard, provides time for Amtrak 
and host railroads to negotiate schedules, and includes a 
dispute resolution process if the parties disagree on 
schedules.
    The Committee understands that the customer on-time 
performance minimum standard is in effect for certified and 
uncertified schedules as of July 2021 and will go into effect 
for disputed schedules in October 2021, which means the first 
opportunity for a party to initiate an on-time performance 
investigation before the STB would be in January 2022 and April 
2022 for disputed schedules. While the STB could play a 
critical role in the implementation of the customer on-time 
performance minimum standard in fiscal year 2022, the Committee 
understands it is difficult to predict in advance the amount of 
resources and staff the STB may need as the customer on-time 
performance minimum standard goes into effect. The Committee 
appreciates the STB forming a passenger rail working group to 
assist with evaluating the current and future needs of the STB 
to fulfill its oversight and investigatory responsibilities for 
the customer on-time performance minimum standard. The 
Committee directs the STB to brief the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations on the status of its preparation 
for such oversight and investigatory responsibilities no later 
than 60 days after enactment of this Act. Further, the 
Committee directs the STB to report to the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations no later than January 31, 2023 on 
the number of on-time performance matters formally brought 
before the STB, the average staff resources dedicated to each 
such matter, the average length of time needed to complete its 
work on each such matter, the number of staff necessary to 
support these activities, and estimates on any additional 
resources needed to address such matters in a timely manner.

    The mission of the United States Interagency Council on 
Homelessness (USICH) is to coordinate multi-agency Federal 
response to homelessness.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $4,000,000 for continued 
operations of the United States Interagency Council on 
Homelessness, to remain available until September 30, 2022.
    Schools and housing opportunities.--The Committee is 
concerned that students lacking adequate housing opportunities 
leads to instability in schools, worsening school performance, 
and the continuation of the cycle of poverty. The Committee 
directs the USICH, in consultation with the Department of 
Education, to provide a report to the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations within 180 days on the feasibility 
of creating stronger partnerships between schools and housing 
agencies to facilitate access to stable housing opportunities 
for students.
    LGBTQ youth care.--The Committee requests USICH to issue a 
report to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations 
within 180 days of enactment of this Act on the steps that can 
be taken to improve access to housing services for LGBTQ youth, 
who make up 40 percent of the youth homeless population. The 
report should also detail methods in which the Federal 
government can partner with LGBTQ youth organizations to 
provide the highest standard of care through using the four 
core outcomes of the Federal framework to end youth 
homelessness: stable housing, permanent connections, education/
employment, and social-emotional well-being. The report should 
serve as a roadmap for continuum of care grantees on how to 
best care for LGBTQ youth and provide access to needed mental 
health services.
    Vehicular homelessness community response.--The Committee 
recommends that the USICH, in consultation with HUD's Office of 
Special Needs Assistance Program and Office of Policy 
Development and Research, report on how communities are 
responding to the challenge of individuals who are experiencing 
vehicular homelessness to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations within 180 days of enactment of this Act.
