The 5310 program is a competitive grant program that provides capital and operating assistance for projects that meet the transportation needs of seniors and individuals with disabilities. Caltrans issued a call for projects for federal fiscal years 2015, 2016 and 2017. Approximately $20 million is available statewide for small urban and rural areas. The application deadline was March 1, 2017.
Caltrans requires that SRTA certify, by resolution, FTA Section 5310 applications before they can be considered for funding. SRTA reviewed the applications for eligibility and consistency with the adopted Regional Transportation Plan and Shasta Coordinated Transportation Plan. Additionally, SRTA is required to score 5310 grant applications that request capital funding for vehicles and vehicle-related equipment. SRTA will evaluate all capital grant applications and present recommendations to the board of directors at the April meeting.
Following are summaries of anticipated FTA Section 5310 grant applications from regional partners:
