The Specialized Transportation Program, also known as Section 5310, is intended to enhance mobility for seniors and persons with disabilities by providing Federal Transit Administration 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 and to smaller non-profit organizations. The purpose of the Section 5310 Specialized Transportation Program is to enhance mobility for older adults and persons with disabilities by removing gaps and barriers to transportation access. The program provides federal assistance for 80% of the cost of capital projects and 50% for operating projects. Applications for 5310 grants are open annually in the spring.
A prerequisite of Section 5310 funding is you must be involved in the coordinated planning efforts. To learn more about how to get involved in the coordinated planning, visit The Greater Regional Mobility Council.
