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 Ad Hoc Committee is to review, evaluate, and develop the prioritization of applicants to receive FTA Section 5310 grant funds for capital and operating awards in the Phoenix-Mesa Urbanized Area (UZA).
FTA guidelines allow large urbanized areas to directly administer the Section 5310 Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities Transportation funds. This 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 as the Designed Recipient. Agencies with services outside of the Phoenix-Mesa UZA will apply through the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) application process. ADOT contact information can be found below. For further information on where your agency should apply, please refer to the MAG Regional Boundary Map under the Resources link below.
