BACKGROUND INFO

The Section 5311 program is the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Non-Urbanized Area Formula Grant Program. The FTA, on behalf of the U. S. Secretary of Transportation, annually allocates apportioned Section 5311 funds to the governor of each state. The 5311 program provides supplemental funding for public transit service in non-urbanized areas. This funding share is apportioned to non-urban areas based on the size of the rural population. This apportionment is distributed to Transportation Planning Agencies (TPA) whose county or region contains a non-urbanized area as identified by the United States Census Bureau.

 

The TPA submits a Program of Projects that identifies subrecipients and projects to receive Section 5311 funds in their planning area. Transit Agency staff has identified a need for supplemental funding for the TRAX program operational budget of which 5311 has been utilized in the past. The attached resolution authorizes staff to request and submit the grant application to support the operating assistance project for non-urbanized public transportation system, TRAX, under Section 5311 of the Federal Transit Act.
