HART’s 2022 Recovery Plan was submitted to FTA June 3, 2022 and accepted by the FTA on September 30, 2022. The Recovery Plan was required by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) to document HART’s plans for the completion of the rail project within the amount of funding that is forecast to be available. With the acceptance of the Recovery Plan, HART is now eligible to receive the remaining $744 million in federal funding under the Full Funding Grant Agreement (FFGA).

HART collaborated with FTA on the amended document throughout 2023; which required approvals from the U.S. Department of Transportation and the U.S. Congress. Completing an amended FFGA will be the first funding-related milestone upon which the FTA will release $125 million in withheld funds.

The accepted Recovery Plan includes: HART’s 2022 Recovery Plan proposed a temporary terminus at the Civic Center Station, located at the intersection of Halekauwila Street and South Street, and deferral of the Pearl Highlands Parking Garage.

HART remains committed to completing the full scope of the project to Ala Moana Transit Center and a parking facility in a separate phase of the project.
