Apply for the
Enhanced Mobility Solicitation

A new transportation authorization called Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) went into effect on October 1, 2012. The new law creates significant changes to the JARC and New Freedom programs. The JARC program was eliminated, and job access and reverse commute activities were made eligible expenses under the Section 5307 (Urbanized Area Formula) grants, which go to transit agencies in urbanized areas. MAP-21 combines the New Freedom program with the Section 5310 (Elderly & Disabled) program to create a new Section 5310 "Enhanced Mobility" program.

MWCOG is the Designated Recipient for the Washington DC-VA-MD Urbanized Area funds under MAP-21.

Stay Tuned for information on the first solicitation under MAP-21’s Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities Program, anticipated to occur in the summer of 2014. (FTA Proposed Circular)
