5310 Project Call
The FTA Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities (Section 5310) program is intended to enhance mobility for seniors and persons with disabilities by providing funds for programs to serve the special needs of transit-dependent populations – beyond traditional public transportation services – and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) complementary paratransit services.
CAMPO is soliciting project proposals for these grant programs within the Austin Urbanized Area. This competitive project selection process will award Federal funding that was apportioned under the FAST (Fixing America’s Surface Transportation) Act. The application and additional information are found below. Applications are due by 5 pm Central Time on September 28, 2018.
Transportation Development Credits (TDCs)
Transportation Development Credits (TDCs) are a federal financing tool that permits the non-Federal share of a project’s cost to be met through a “soft match” of TDCs. This allows the TDC program to create more flexibility in state and local transportation programs by providing the ability to shift funds available for local match requirements to other transportation related expenses.
CAMPO manages the TDC program for the six-county region. The program is governed by the Approval Policy and Administrative Procedures approved by the Transportation Policy Board (TPB) in August 2017. To learn more about TDCs, view this January 2018 TDC Presentation.
