BMPO, in cooperation with the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD), is requesting applications for Federal Fiscal Year 2018 through Fiscal Year 2020 for the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Section 5310 Enhanced Mobility for Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities Program.

The Section 5310 Program is to enhance mobility for seniors and persons with disabilities by providing funds for programs to serve the special needs of transit-dependent populations beyond traditional public transportation services and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) complementary paratransit services.

ITD policy allows each small urban area to develop a competitive bid process for identifying projects to be included in the State Transportation Investment Plan (STIP). ITD has authorized BMPO to develop and recommend projects through this process.

The application will be available for review and download on the BMPO website www.bmpo.org beginning Friday, December 15, 2017. Completed applications may be emailed to dwest@bmpo.org or mailed to BMPO, 1810 W. Broadway, Suite 15, Idaho Falls, ID 83402. All applications must be returned to BMPO by Monday, January 29, 2018 no later than 5:00 p.m.
