Public Comment Period Begins Today  for Proposed Section 5310 Program of Continuation Projects

 

I announced at our monthly board of director’s meeting today the  opening of the 30-day public comment period for ten proposed Section 5310 Program of Continuation Projects.  The comment period ends on October 14, 2016. This recommended Program of Projects was developed based on applications submitted by current recipients of Section 5310 funding.  It will be presented to the RTA Board for consideration at the October 20, 2016 Board meeting.  Public comments on these projects can be emailed to: fundingcomments@rtachicago.org.

More information can be found on the RTA website at http://www.rtachicago.com/plans-programs/grants-projects/section-5310.  The projects are proposed to receive a total of $4.3 million in Federal Section 5310, Fiscal Year 2015 funding. These projects provide demand responsive transit service for seniors and individuals with disabilities throughout the RTA region. These services are all part of the northeast Illinois Coordinated Public Transit Human Services Transportation Plan.
