The Greater Buffalo-Niagara Regional Transportation Council (GBNRTC), the Metropolitan Planning Organization for Erie and Niagara Counties, is proposing to amend the 2017-2021 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) by adding the following new project:
PIN 5824.69 NFTA 5311 17/18 Operating Assistance
$151.5K FTA 5311 (50%) + $151.5K (Local Match (50%))
The Formula Grants for Rural Areas program (FTA Section 5311) provides capital, planning, and operating assistance to states to support public transportation in rural areas with populations of less than 50,000, where many residents often rely on public transit to reach their destinations. The program also provides funding for state and national training and technical assistance through the Rural Transportation Assistance Program.
The federal (FTA Section 5311) funding share is limited to 50 percent for operating assistance and 80% for capital assistance.
