This is the last week to offer your feedback on the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) Section 5310 Measures through an open dialogue hosted by Easter Seals Project Action (ESPA). The Section 5310 program is intended to enhance mobility for seniors and persons with disabilities by providing funds for programs to serve the special needs of transit-dependent populations beyond traditional public transportation services and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) complementary para-transit services.
Participants can discuss:
- What performance measures reflect the benefits of the Section 5310 program
- Top ways Section 5310 funding can be used to meet transportation needs
- The extent to which your agency will be able to collect data
- FTA is considering combining the reporting requirements of Section 5335(c) into a single requirement for recipients of Section 5310. The method will utilize the National Transit Database (NTD) system for recipients of Section 5310, Section 5311, or Section 5307 to report on behalf of their sub recipients.
You can share your thoughts on specific questions, post your own questions, or vote on ideas through this online dialogue. To register, visit the ESPA website.
