Program Description: This program provides formula funding to increase the mobility of seniors and individuals with disabilities. Under FAST Act, funds are apportioned based on each state's share of the targeted populations and are now apportioned to both states (for all areas less than 200,000) and large urbanized areas (more than 200,000).

NF projects should be for services for individuals with disabilities that go above and beyond the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

To be eligible for funding consideration, a Coordinated Public Transit - Human Services Transportation Plan and all updates must be on file with OPT or submitted to OPT with the application.
