Maritime Administration Maritime Administration Captain Bob Loken Director PNW, Alaska, Guam, Hawaii Gateway U.S. Maritime Administration October 15, 2014
U.S. Ports Today 2 American companies ship cargo worth more than $5.5 billion through U.S. ports every day. 75 % of our nation’s exports travel through U.S. seaports. Port activity supports more than 13 million jobs and accounts for more than $3 trillion in business activity nationwide. Studies show that, by 2050, America’s freight network will need to haul 4 billion more tons of international freight above the 9 billion it currently moves. Key to this plan will involve how our ports can most efficiently work with our rail lines and highway system on land and water.

Planning and Engagement Port Planning & Investment Toolkit Port Planning Grants Port Talk Initiative Full Time Community Planner (Started 4/14) Gateways/HQ - Delivery of Federal Services 8
9 A joint venture between AAPA, a working group of 57 industry expert volunteers, and the Maritime Administration. Toolkit will help ports obtain funding by developing investment grade plans that: Clearly identify future port needs; Determine the most cost-effective, sustainable and efficient solutions to port problems; and Get port infrastructure projects into MPO and state transportation programs in order to receive formula funding; Position port projects for federal funding such as TIGER grants; and Assist ports in obtaining private sector investment funds.
10 A facilitated day-long session to foster dialogue and develop regional maritime transportation plans Target participants include State Departments of Transportation, MPOs, Economic Development Corporations, Ports, and Port Authorities PortTalk Outcomes: Identify resources and programs to help build, modernize and expand maritime transportation assets Spotlight maritime transportation's role in regional transportation system planning Shipper and shipping-company outreach and needs assessment Gain understanding of freight system plans to 2025 Generate innovative solutions to environmental and logistics challenges
Financing Port Infrastructure Grant Authority TIGER VI Grants – 7 Grants $74.2Million Port Conveyance Program Marine Highway Projects Potential Full Time Port Finance Agent 11
Federal Financing Programs (Selected) Surface Transportation Program (STP) Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) Projects of National and Regional Significance (PNRS) Transportation Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (TIFIA) Private Activity Bonds (PABs) Railroad Rehabilitation and Improvement Financing (RRIF) Small Shipyard Grant Program Port Security Grant Program (PSGP) Diesel Emissions Reduction Act (DERA) Brownfield Grants Congestion Mitigation & Air Quality Program (CMAQ) Ferry-related Grants 12
Infrastructure Facility Charge A concept under discussion by the Marine Transportation National Advisory Council (MTSNAC) based on the Airport Passenger Facility Charge – Will require authorizing legislation. Fees are applied to cargo (bulk and containerized) or passengers shipped to or from a port authority authorized to collect the infrastructure charge – Funds remain under the port’s control. Fee is project specific and may be used for “state of good repair” maintenance or to support the issuance of construction bonds. Eligible projects must be included in a port master plan and include a detailed financing plan. Stakeholder working group is established to fully develop the proposal for consideration by the MTSNAC in the Spring of 2015 13
Project Support Further Moves Away From “Management” Increasing Number of Support Requests Incremental Staff Increases Planned Retain “Project Management” Capability 14
