5307 Urbanized Area Formula Grants

​​​​

 
This program makes Federal resources available to urbanized areas and to Governors for transit capital and operating assistance in urbanized areas and for transportation related planning.  An urbanized area is an incorporated area with a population of 50,000 or more that is designated as such by the U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of the Census.
 
Eligible purposes include planning, engineering design and evaluation of transit projects and other technical transportation-related studies; capital investments in bus and bus-related activities such as replacement of buses, overhaul of buses, rebuilding of buses, crime prevention and security equipment and construction of maintenance and passenger facilities; and capital investments in new and existing fixed guideway systems including rolling stock, overhaul and rebuilding of vehicles, track, signals, communications, and computer hardware and software.  All preventive maintenance and some Americans with Disabilities Act complementary paratransit service costs are considered capital costs
 
For urbanized areas with a population of 200,000 and over, funds are apportioned and flow directly to a designated recipient selected locally to apply for and receive Federal funds.  For urbanized areas under 200,000 in population, the funds are apportioned to the Governor of each state for distribution.  Kentucky has the option of 5307 grants between 50,000-199,999 that may apply directly to FTA or via the KYTC/OTD.
