  1. NCHRP Project 20-65(16)Current State Eligibility Requirements for Grantees to Qualify for S.5311 and S.5310 Prepared by: KFH Group, Incorporated In conjunction with: Cambridge Systematics

  2. Project Objective • Document each State’s eligibility requirements for S.5311 and S.5310 funding • Estimate the relative share of funding provided to each type of entity

  3. Federal Eligibility – Section 5311 Section 5311 • State Agencies • Local Public Bodies and Agencies • Private Non-Profit Organizations • Operators of Public Transit Services* * private for profits can participate as third party contractors for grantees of eligible recipients

  4. Federal Eligibility – Section 5310 Section 5310 • Private Non-Profit Organizations • Public Bodies or Governmental authorities if: • State certifies that no non-profit organizations are available to provide service • Public body is approved by the State to coordinate services for elderly and persons with disabilities

  5. State Eligibility Requirements • Federal regulations allow State to further limit restrictions • State requirements have evolved over the life of the program • States have varying policies on what types of agencies can apply for an receive funding under the programs

  6. Research Questions for States* • Which entities are eligible for funding? • How many grantees do you have of each type? • What percentage of your State’s budget is going to eachtype? *Research is based on results from 25 State agencies

  7. Eligible S.5311 Recipients

  8. Number of S.5311 Recipients

  9. Percent S.5311 Recipients

  10. Conclusions – Section 5311 • Most States are not more restrictive than the Federal definitions • Most States have a stable set of grantees that include a range of possible entities • While many States do not designate one operator in each geographical area, this happens in practice • Most states allow independently created rural transit districts or authorities but only three states researched (CT, TX, UT) have formally established and restrict funding to those entities

  11. Eligible S.5310 Recipients

  12. Number of S.5310 Recipients

  13. Percent S.5310 Recipients

  14. Conclusions – Section 5310 • Most States administer the program on a statewide basis, not restricting grantees by geographical area • Most States operate their S.5310 program independent from their S.5311 programs, making the grants available to any eligible entity • Only a few states administer S.5310 and S.5311 as one program • Local or regional public transit operators or designated coordinating bodies are encouraged to apply • 72% of the States indicate that an organization could receive both • Only 30% of their public transit operators actually receive S.5310 operating or capital funds
