About the Program:
The Enhanced Mobility for Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities (Section 5310) program provides capital grants to assist governments, transit agencies, and other transportation providers who offer coordinated transportation services that are planned, designed, and carried out to meet the needs of seniors and individuals with disabilities in the Cleveland Urbanized area.
Eligible Projects: Eligible capital projects include vehicles, communication equipment, computer hardware/software, mobility management, and accessibility improvement requests. All capital assets require a 20 percent local match. Public Transit Agencies can also apply for operating funds, which require a 50 percent local match.

What the Program Provides: The program funds 80 percent of the cost of capital projects and the remaining 20 percent must be covered by local funding. This is a competitive grant program. Only public transit agencies are eligible for operating expenses.
