Title

FFY19 and FFY20 Section 5339 Full Apportionment Split Letter (10 minutes)

Felix Nwoko, LPA Staff

 

Narrative

The Section 5339 Buses and Bus Facilities program (49 U.S.C. 5339) makes Federal resources available to states and designated recipients to replace, rehabilitate, and purchase buses and related equipment, and to construct bus-related facilities. DCHC MPO is the designated recipient for the Durham urbanized area (UZA). Section 5339 formula funds are allocated to the urbanized areas (UZAs)  based upon population, vehicle revenue miles, and passenger miles. The Durham UZA was awarded $1,003,117 in FFY2019 and $1,054,941 in FFY2020 (Total = $2,058,058). As designated recipient for the 5339 funds for the Durham UZA, the DCHC MPO may allocate funding to fixed route operators. The split letter, as developed by LPA staff in conjunction with fixed-route operators and according to MPO policy, defines the intended allocation for FFY19 and FFY20.
