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


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


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


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


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


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





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





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
