Purpose and Goal of Application and Grant Programs
The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) provides financial assistance to states through a number of programs to develop new transit systems and improve, maintain, and operate existing systems. The Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts has designated the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) as the agency of authority and responsibility for administering assistance received in Massachusetts through Title 49 USC Sections 5310, 5311, 5316, 5317, and 5339 (Small-Urban & Statewide portions only) funding programs.
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts through the Rail & Transit Division (RTD) within MassDOT provides financial assistance to eligible organizations through several programs to provide a state financial match to federally funded capital, operating, and planning projects. RTD distributes financial assistance through the Mobility Assistance Program (MAP) to provide transportation services to elderly persons and persons with disabilities as defined in Chapter 637 § 13 of the Acts of 1983.
