Title

FFY20 Section COVID-19 CARES ACT 5307/5340 FULL Apportionment Split Letter (10 minutes)

Felix Nwoko, LPA Staff

 

Narrative

As part of the COVID-19 Stimulus packet called the CARES ACT, FTA received funding under the Section 5307/5340 program which are allocated to urbanized areas for transit capital and operating assistance, and for transportation-related planning. The CARES funding differs from the traditional 5307 in that, it does not require matching fund, expenses must be incurred on or after January 2020 and it does not have programmed in the TIP. Like 5307/5340, it requires DOL certification and all grant application procedure. The DCHC MPO full apportionment for FFY20 for each program was released by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and the LPA staff, in consultation with the four fixed-route transit operators and MPO policy, developed a recommended distribution of this funding. A 'split letter' to FTA regarding the allocation of these funds among transit operators must be approved by the Board to authorize the transit operators to seek applications for funding. Attached is the split letter to FTA .
