SRTC Issues Call For Projects

SRTC is issuing a call for projects for the Section 5316 Job Access and Reverse Commute Program (JARC) and the Section 5317 New Freedom Program.

The current Federal legislation which authorizes funding, the 'Safe, Affordable, Flexible, and Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users' (SAFETEA-LU) established funding for the JARC and New Freedom programs.

Spokane Transit Authority is the designated recipient for these program funds to be used in developing local transportation programs in the Spokane Urbanized Area (UZA). All projects selected for funding from these FTA programs are to be derived from the Spokane County Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan and must be competitively selected.

The 2009 Call for Projects is to award fiscal years 2007, 2008 and 2009 funding for JARC and New Freedom projects. There is approximately $480,000 in JARC and $260,000
in New Freedom funds that are available for award.

To apply, or to find more information, go to our website. Applications must be received on/before June 8 2009.
