RTC Calls for Projects to Enhance Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities

The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County is pleased to announce a Call for Projects to provide transportation improvements for seniors and people with disabilities. Applications will be accepted through January 17, 2024.

Previous projects were funded by the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) Section 5310 dollars, and in response to the community’s desire for funding flexibility, RTC is making the equivalent Section 5310 funding appropriations available in sales tax funds for distribution in support of local projects.

The solicitation is for a two (2)-year funding agreement encompassing federal fiscal years 2024-2026. A maximum of $1,151,752 in sales tax funding is proposed and is based upon FTA Section 5310 appropriations. Applications must be emailed to jmeyers@rtcwashoe.com by noon on January 17, 2024. Eligible applicants must be private non-profit, private for profit, or local governmental authorities.

Grant funds are available for capital and operating expenses to support the provision of transportation services to meet the specific needs of elderly persons and persons with disabilities. All projects must be situated in the Reno/Sparks, Washoe County urban area.

Interested applicants should review the Call for Projects details by downloading the application instructions and completing the application available at https://bit.ly/3TrSKPX
