Application for 2015 Federal Transit Administration Funds
Section 5307 – Urbanized Area Formula Program
Ozarks Transportation Organization (OTO) announces the open application process of the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21), Urbanized Area Formula Program (5307).
The 5307 program provides grant funds to urbanized areas for public transportation and allows investments for capital, planning, job access and reverse commute projects, as well as operating expenses in certain circumstances. Activities such as vehicle replacements, facilities renovation or construction, preventive maintenance, and mobility management are eligible through this program.
It is estimated that $2,507,571 will be available for the FY2015. Of this amount, one percent of the apportionment must be used for security projects or certification must be made that it is not necessary to do so.
The application process opens March 13, 2014 and closes April 16, 2014. These funds constitute a core investment to enhance local public transportation systems in the OTO area. Priority will be given to projects that preserve and provide upgrades to existing transit systems.
It is the responsibility of the transit provider to submit the application and include all information needed for the subcommittee selection process, in order to assess how each project applies to the selection criteria.
