Section 5310 Program

 

Section 5310 Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities Program

 

The Section 5310 Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities Program provides Federal funding to improve mobility for seniors and people with disabilities. This program provides grant funds for capital expenses for vehicles and related equipment used to transport seniors and people with disabilities and activities related to mobility management. Funds may also be used for operating projects which specifically serve seniors and people with disabilities, travel training to instruct persons with disabilities on using fixed-route bus services, and capital projects to remove barriers at bus stops for persons with disabilities. See the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Circular 9070.1G for complete information on the Section 5310 program.

For large urbanized areas, like the Milwaukee Urbanized Area, a public entity must be designated as the recipient of Section 5310 funding. For the Milwaukee Urbanized Area, Milwaukee County has been selected as the designated recipient. The County will be responsible for receiving and administering the Section 5310 funds.

The Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission (SEWRPC), in coordination with Milwaukee County staff, developed a  Program Management and Recipient Coordination Plan that explains the procedures for administering the Section 5310 program and serves as a guide for the application process.
