The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) provides grant funding through the Section 5310 Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities Transportation Program to improve mobility for older adults and individuals with disabilities. The purpose of the MAG Elderly and Persons with Disabilities Transportation Program Ad Hoc Committee is to develop the prioritization of applicants to receive FTA Section 5310 grant funds for capital and operating expenses in the Phoenix-Mesa Urbanized Area (UZA).
The FTA Section 5310 program provides funding for the purpose of assisting private nonprofit groups in meeting the transportation needs of older adults and people with disabilities when the transportation service provided is unavailable, insufficient, or inappropriate to meeting these needs. FTA guidelines allow large urbanized areas to directly administer Section 5310 funds. The change to the Designated Recipient has resulted in modifications for the submittal of the FTA Section 5310 applications in the MAG region. Agencies applying for Section 5310 awards in the Phoenix-Mesa UZA will apply through the MAG application process in coordination with the City of Phoenix Public Transit Department. Agencies applying for Section 5310 awards outside of the Phoenix-Mesa UZA will apply through the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) application process.
The FTA Section 5310 formula assistance program for the Phoenix-Mesa UZA is scheduled to release the application and handbook on Friday, January 25, 2019. The MAG regional application training workshop is scheduled for Tuesday, January 29, 2019, at the MAG offices, second floor Saguaro Room from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. To register for the application training workshop, contact Shantel Wyke, MAG Human Services Transportation Intern, using the contact links on this page.
Please note, all applicants of FTA Section 5310 funding are federally required to participate in human services transportation coordination efforts. For information on how to participate in regional coordination efforts, contact DeDe Gaisthea, MAG, using the contact link on this page.
Please refer to the ADOT website for information regarding the Section 5310 application program for areas outside of the Phoenix-Mesa UZA boundary. You can access the ADOT webpage using the link below:

In an effort to make information delivery faster, MAG has implemented an e-mail notification system that will make it easier to receive documents such as agendas, minutes and reports. Through a free subscription service called GovDelivery, MAG member agencies and the public will have better access to information that is posted on the MAG Web site.
The subscription service monitors specific Web pages for changes, and when a change is detected, the service sends an e-mail to subscribers notifying them of the change. Users can choose to subscribe to as many of the pages as they wish. There are about 130 monitored pages on the MAG Web site.
As a subscriber, you can choose not only what information you receive, you can also choose how often you receive it—immediately, daily, or weekly.
To subscribe, simply click on the link on the page that says “Sign up to receive email updates.” Users can also click on a Quick Subscribe link on various pages to see a full list and subscribe to any of the MAG pages. To subscribe, only a few pieces of information will be required, such as e-mail address, delivery preferences and organization.
