5310 Grant Program
Section 5310 of the Federal Transit Act, as amended, authorizes the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) to make capital assistance grants to private non-profit organizations or to public bodies which certify to the Governor that no non-profit corporation or association is readily available in an area to provide services for seniors or individuals with disabilities.
Section 5310 funds are for the purchase of accessible vehicles or communication equipment to be used in transporting seniors and individuals with disabilities. These funds are available on an 80% Federal, 20% local matching basis.
This is a competitive grant program. Applications are scored based on need, vehicle utilization, coordination efforts, fiscal and managerial capabilities and operating plan. No application is considered for funding without a positive Local Intergovernmental Review or proper sign-off and coordination documentation.
Additional information about the program may be obtained from the Division. Application Packets are available in May of each year and applications are due in September. The Application Packet contains the specific application deadlines.
