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.
Agencies intending to apply for Section 5310 funding in the Phoenix-Mesa UZA, will utilize the 2022 Section 5310 application and handbook coordinated by the Maricopa Association of Governments and the City of Phoenix Public Transit Department. The Notice of Funding Available for the 2022 Section 5310 Phoenix-Mesa UZA application is scheduled to be released on Monday, January 24, 2022. The 2022 Section 5310 Phoenix-Mesa UZA application workshop is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb 1, 2022, from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m., virtually through Zoom. To register for the Section 5310 Training Workshop please contact Hezequias Rocha at, HRocha@azmag.gov.
Please note, all applicants of FTA Section 5310 funding are federally required to participate in human services transportation coordination efforts. For information regarding the Section 5310 Phoenix-Mesa UZA application process or how to participate in regional coordination efforts, contact DeDe Gaisthea, MAG, using the contact links on this page. For information regarding the Section 5310 Phoenix-Mesa UZA Program, contact Wendy Miller, City of Phoenix, at Section5310@phoenix.gov.
In 2019, ADOT moved to a two-year Section 5310 application cycle. The next ADOT application cycle will be for the years 2023 and 2024. Section 5310 application information for areas outside of the Phoenix-Mesa UZA, including rural, small urban, and the Avondale/Goodyear, can be found on the ADOT website at the following link.
