Enhanced Mobility

The  Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA’s) Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities Program (Section 5310) provides funding for transportation for people with disabilities and older adults who have difficulty using public transit or need improved access to it.  COG is the Designated Recipient for this program for the Washington DC-VA-MD Urbanized Area and the program provides approximately $2.8 million per year in matching grants for nonprofit organizations, local governments, transit agencies and private for-profit providers.

The TPB’s Coordinated Human Service Transportation Plan outlines the competitive selection process for the grants. At least every two years, the TPB issues a solicitation for grant applications.  For each solicitation, the Access for All Advisory Committee confirms priority projects identified in the Coordinated Plan.  Past  projects include many of those priorities: travel training, wheelchair accessible taxis, vehicle acquisition for non-profit organizations serving clients with developmental disabilities, and volunteer driver programs.
