Please Review Projects Submitted For Funding

SRTC recently administered a call for projects for the Washington State Department of Transportation's 2013-2015 Consolidated Public Transportation Grants Program. There are several programs covered by the application process including (but not limited to) Federal Transit Administration Sections 5310, 5311, 5316, and 5317; State Rural Mobility Competitive; and the State Paratransit/Special Needs Competitive Grant for non-profit organizations. Information on all those programs can be found at
Fourteen applications were submitted in the call for projects. All were required to meet a need and address a strategy identified in the Spokane County Coordinated Public Transit Human Services Transportation Plan (HSTP). These projects will potentially be incorporated into the HSTP as strategies to mitigate transportation barriers identified in the plan.
We've put together a Projects Application Summary so you can review the projects and programs that submitted funding requests. Please look them over and submit any comments you have on them by 4 p.m. on November 23, 2012 by emailing or mailing to SRTC at 221 W. 1st Ave., Suite 310, Spokane, WA 99201.

This summary sheet doesn't include the full applications for each project, as they were lengthy. You are welcome to view them though by dropping by the SRTC office between 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at the address above.
