Recommended Program of Projects

On January 26, 2017, PSRC’s Executive Board took action on recommended program of special needs transportation projects to be funded for the 2017-2019 biennium. PSRC forwarded the board-approved regional priority rankings list to WSDOT for consideration in upcoming Consolidated Grant program awards.

In addition, the board approved projects to receive Section 5310 funds managed by PSRC, including: Traditional 5310 and Other 5310. The board also approved a Contingency List for projects eligible to receive Section 5310 funds managed by PSRC.

PSRC will post the final program of projects for special needs transportation funding, including projects funded by the WSDOT Consolidated Grant Program, and an updated contingency list once WSDOT announces its Consolidated Grant awards.

The Coordinated Grant Process

PSRC has imposed a maximum funding request limitation on FTA Section 5310 funds managed by the agency. See the Coordinated Grant process flow chart below and the updated PSRC Coordinated Grant schedule.

About PSRC’s Coordinated Grant Program

The competitive Coordinated Grant program funds eligible projects from Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Section 5310 (Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities) program in the Seattle-Tacoma-Everett Urbanized Area, and provides regional priority ranking for state and other FTA special needs transportation funds managed by WSDOT in its Consolidated Grant Program.

Special needs projects provide transportation services to seniors, people with disabilities, low-income, and youth to help them get to medical appointments, educational opportunities, jobs, shopping and social interactions.

As in past competitive funding cycles, PSRC and WSDOT will coordinate their respective special needs transportation funding in the 2016-2017 Grant Program funding and award cycle to leverage funding from their respective sources to meet the needs and fill gaps in transportation to people with special transportation needs in the region. All projects awarded funding must meet the goals and objectives of the region’s 2015-2018 Coordinated Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan adopted as part of Transportation 2040.
