Section 5310 - Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities Program

This program provides formula funding to increase the mobility of seniors and persons with disabilities. Under MAP-21, funds are apportioned based on each State’s share of the targeted populations and are now apportioned to both States (for all areas under 200,000) and large urbanized areas (over 200,000). The former New Freedom (NF) Program (Section 5317) is folded into this program. The NF Program provided grants for services for individuals with disabilities that went above and beyond the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Activities eligible under NF are now eligible under the Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities Program.
