Introduction
This application manual pertains to Applications for Federal Assistance under U.S.C. Section 5316 Job
Access and Reverse Commute Program for the Jacksonville Urbanized Area, as administered by the
Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA). It contains program information, application forms, exhibits,
certifications & assurances, and instructions.

Program Administration
The Federal government allocates funds to the Jacksonville Urbanized Area each year for the Section
5316 program. The JTA has been designated by the Governor to administer the program. The JTA is
responsible for ensuring that the FTA program objectives and mandates are met including:
          Certifying that projects selected are derived from a locally developed, coordinated public transit-
          human services transportation plan created through a process that consists of representatives of
          public, private and non-profit transportation and human services providers with participation by the
          public;
          Applying for program funds on the behalf of itself and/or eligible sub-recipients within the
          Northeast Florida area;
          Ensuring that local applicants and project activities are eligible and in compliance with Federal
          requirements and that the program provides for maximum feasible coordination of transportation
          services assisted by other Federal sources;
          Certifying a fair and equitable distribution of funds resulting from the competitive selection
          process;
          Managing all aspects of grant distribution and oversight for sub-recipients receiving funds under
          this program;
          Collecting quarterly report information from sub-recipients and submitting reports to members of
          the Northeast Florida Mobility Coalition and to the FTA;
          Certifying to FTA annually that the recipient and sub-recipients have met or will meet all Federal
          requirements, including all metropolitan and statewide planning requirements; and
          Assisting sub-recipients in the procurement of grant-related equipment.

Authorizing legislation for the program is shown in the Glossary of this manual under “authorizing
Federal and State Legislation.”
The goal of the JARC Program is to improve access to transportation services to employment and
employment related activities for welfare recipients and eligible low-income individuals and to transport
residents of urbanized areas and nonurbanized areas to suburban employment opportunities. Toward this
goal, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) provides financial assistance for transportation services
planned, designed, and carried out to meet the transportation needs of eligible low-income individuals, and
reverse commuters regardless of income. The program requires coordination of Federally-assisted
programs and services in order to make the most efficient use of Federal resources.
In Florida, program funds shall be used to support local transportation services which act to maximize the
passenger carry capacity of surface transportation facilities. Every effort will be made to leverage funds with
existing transportation disadvantaged or commuter assistance program providers. Highest priority will be
given to projects that address identified service gaps.




                                                      3
Eligible Subrecipients
The Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA), as the Designated Recipient of New Freedom funds and
pursuant to the requirements of Section 5316 of Title 49, United States Code, hereby gives notice of the
availability of federal grant funds under the New Freedom Grant (49 U.S.C. § 5316) and the issuance of a
Request for Applications (RFAs). Applications are being solicited from qualified agencies for qualified
projects. Qualified applicants must:
    •   Be a private non-profit or private for profit organization, private agency, local public agency or local
        public authority;
    •   Have a signed Coordination Agreement with the local CTC if they are not a CTC themselves (list of
        the local CTCs is provided in the Appendix);
    •   Show an established need for the project and how the project fits into the recommendations of the
        Northeast Florida Coordinated Mobility Plan;
    •   Have sufficient local funds for match requirements and for maintenance and operation of
        vehicles/equipment;
    •   Have the legal authority and fiscal/managerial capability to apply for Federal assistance.
    •   Demonstrate that the proposed project meets Federal requirements including:
         • Comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, of 1990, as amended; Section 504 of the
            Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended; U. S. DOT regulations, Transportation Services for
            Individuals with Disabilities (ADA) at 49 CFR Part 37; and FTA regulations, Transportation
            for Elderly and Handicapped Persons, 49 CFR Part 609.
         • Strengthens transportation options in the Jacksonville Urbanized Area and connects to the
            JTA fixed route system

Threshold Criteria
Threshold criteria are the minimum legal eligibility requirements. Applications must be for eligible
services, eligible service areas, eligible recipients, eligible expenses, and provide evidence of local
matching funds. Applicants must also ensure compliance with a number of other conditions placed on
recipients of grants including, but not limited to, coordination of transit services, civil rights preservation,
compliance with safety and drug free work place regulations, competitive procurement of goods and
services bought with grant funds, ADA and references to the Federal Transit Administration’s Master
Agreement (http://www.fta.dot.gov/documents/12-Master.doc).
JTA’s Civil Rights Officer is responsible for civil rights compliance and monitoring to ensure non-
discriminatory provision of transit services and programs. Implementation of the Title VI Program is
accorded the same priority as compliance with all other legal obligations incurred by the JTA in its
financial assistance agreements with DOT. Compliance reviews and assessments are conducted to
determine if the sub-recipient’s required efforts under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, (including
aspects of Environmental Justice), Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) program, Disadvantaged
Business Enterprise (DBE) program, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) requirements
are in compliance as represented. If you have any questions or concerns about your agency’s Civil
Rights preservation compliance when using Federal funds such as the Section 5316 program, please

Eligible Expenses
Funds from the JARC program are available for capital and operating expenses that support the
development and maintenance of transportation services designed to transport low-income individuals to
and from jobs and activities related to their employment and to support reverse commute projects.
Eligible projects may include, but are not limited to capital and operating assistance to support activities
such as:
 a. Late-night and weekend service;
 b. Guaranteed ride home service;
 c. Expanding fixed-route public transit routes;
 d. Demand-responsive van service;
 e. Ridesharing and carpooling activities;
 f. Transit-related aspects of bicycling (such as adding bicycle racks to vehicles);

 h. Acquiring Geographic Information System (GIS) tools;
 i. Implementing Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), including customer trip information
    technology;
 j. Integrating automated regional public transit and human service transportation information,
    scheduling and dispatch functions;
 k. Deploying vehicle position-monitoring systems;
 l. Supporting new mobility management and coordination programs among public transportation
    providers and other human service agencies providing transportation. Mobility management is
    intended to build coordination among existing public transportation providers and other
    transportation service providers with the result of expanding the availability of service. Mobility
    management activities may include:
    (1) The promotion, enhancement, and facilitation of access to transportation services, including
         the integration and coordination of services for individuals with disabilities, older adults, and
         low-income individuals;
    (2) Support for short term management activities to plan and implement coordinated services;
    (3) The support of State and local coordination policy bodies and councils;
    (4) The operation of transportation brokerages to coordinate providers, funding agencies and
         customers;
    (5) The provision of coordination services, including employer-oriented Transportation
         Management Organizations’ and Human Service Organizations’ customer-oriented travel
         navigator systems and neighborhood travel coordination activities such as coordinating
         individualized travel training and trip planning activities for customers;
    (6) The development and operation of one-stop transportation traveler call centers to coordinate
         transportation information on all travel modes and to manage eligibility requirements and
         arrangements for customers among supporting programs; and
    (7) Operational planning for the acquisition of intelligent transportation technologies to help plan
         and operate coordinated systems inclusive of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) mapping,
         Global Positioning System technology, coordinated vehicle scheduling, dispatching and
         monitoring technologies as well as technologies to track costs and billing in a coordinated
         system and single smart customer payment systems (acquisition of technology is also eligible
         as a stand alone capital expense).

Ineligible Expenses
Expenses for charter service; school bus service; service not open to the general public; and
depreciation expense are not eligible under the Section 5316 program.




                                                     5
Eligible Project Area:
Jacksonville Urbanized Area funds may only be used for projects within the Jacksonville Urbanized area
detail in pink in the map below. All other projects that may be the criteria for 5316 should be submitted as
a small urban or rural area 5316 project administered by the FDOT.




                                                     6
Matching funds for Section 5316 Operating Assistance (Part B)
The Section 5316 federal share of eligible operating expenses may not exceed 50%. Some combination
of state, local, or private funding sources must be identified and committed to provide the required non-
federal share. The non-federal share may be cash, or in kind. It may be local, private, state funds, or
(up to one half) unrestricted Federal funds.
Contract revenue from the provision of transportation services to social service agencies may also be
used as local match. In most other Federal programs, such revenues would be treated as program
income, not as match.
Non-cash items such as donations of goods or services, volunteered services, or in-kind contributions
are eligible to be counted towards the local match only if the value of such is formally documented and
supported.
Any funds committed as match to another Federal program may not also be used to match Section 5316
funds.

Matching funds for Section 5316 Capital Assistance (Part C)
The Federal share of eligible capital costs may not exceed 80 percent of the net cost of the activity.
Please note that unlike FDOT capital requests, the Jacksonville Urbanized Area Designated Recipient
(the JTA) cannot provide the 10% matching state funds. All agencies requesting capital funds from the
Jacksonville Urbanized area must provide the 20% match before the capital item is procured. Please
also note that capital items must be procured through the JTA’s Procurement Department.

Use of Section 5316-funded vehicles or equipment
Section 5316 funds/vehicles/equipment may be used for general public transportation services provided
on a regular and continuing basis for qualified individuals. They may also be used for service provided to
non-sponsored transportation disadvantaged persons and to social service clients provided there is no
restriction on public use of the service. Service may not be designed exclusively to serve the
transportation requirements of social service agencies without regard for the mobility needs of the
community as a whole. Charter, sightseeing, and exclusive school bus services are not eligible services.
If the original sub-recipient no longer needs/or does not use the vehicle for the purposes for which it was
acquired, the vehicle will be put in use for the original program purposes by transferring the vehicle to
another sub-recipient or back to the Designated Recipient.
       Title to Vehicles. As the Designated Recipient, the JTA will hold the title for any vehicles
       purchased through the federal grant programs and leased by the JTA to a sub-recipient. The FTA
       requires that the Designated Recipient establishes continuing control over the vehicles and
       accepts the responsibility for continued public transit use of the vehicles.
       Vehicle Safety Audits and Inspections. It is the responsibility of each Designated Recipient
       and sub-recipient to comply with the provisions of Rule Chapter 14-90, Florida Administrative
       Code (FAC). These provisions include the development of and compliance with a System Safety
       Program Plan (SSPP) and Security Program Plan (SPP), performance of safety inspections of all
       operational buses, documentation of compliance with equipment and operational safety
       standards, and safety monitoring of covered contractors. The Designated Recipient must certify
       to the FTA that any vehicles purchased and used for the operations of grant funded programs are
       in compliance with Chapter 14-90. To certify this fact, the JTA will conduct regular inspections of
       all sub-recipient operations including:
                  Annual Update of System Safety Program Plan
                  Annual System Safety Certification
                  Quarterly Vehicle Safety Inspections
                  Unscheduled Random Service Provider Audits

                                                     7
       The JTA shall submit to each sub-recipient a written outline of the audit agenda to be used in
       monitoring their compliance with Chapter 14-90, prior to any announced audit. A copy of the audit
       report results will be provided to the sub-recipient within ten (10) working days of the audit
       completion. A specific action plan will be developed for correcting in the most expedient and sound
       manner any discrepancies found.

       Charter Rule. Federally funded equipment is prohibited from charter service if there is at least
       one private charter operator in the area willing and able to provide the charter service. Charter
       service is defined as providing special service to a specific group of who dictates the routes and
       times of the service. Under current federal regulations, service provided under contract to a social
       service agency will usually be considered public transportation, NOT charter service, if the
       service is under the control of the sub-recipient, is open door, and the sub-recipient can put any
       rider on the vehicle in addition to the agency’s client. These regulations should not discourage
       sub-recipients from using FTA funded equipment in coordinated systems, or from providing
       service under contract to social service agencies, provided the requirements of the regulations
       are met.

Competitive Selection Process
Title 49 U.S.C. 5316, as amended by SAFETEA-LU requires a recipient of funds to conduct a
competitive selection process that is separate from, but coordinated with, the planning process. The
competition allocates funding to the Designated Recipient and sub-recipients to implement FTA projects.
All priorities identified in the Criteria for Funding will be derived from the locally developed Northeast
Florida Coordinated Mobility Plan. Furthermore, all priorities will be included in the Statewide
Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) for capital and/or operating projects or Unified Planning
Work Program (UPWP) for planning projects.

Competitive Selection Committee and Voting
The Competitive Selection Committee will be made up of representatives from regional county offices
and transit providers, the MPO, and the FDOT. These committee representatives will be selected based
upon a vote taken by the collective membership of the Coalition and will rotate each year. The committee
will meet before the start of the Competitive Selection Process to reassess the quantitative and
qualitative measures in which to rank the competitive proposals to ensure that the goals and objectives
of the Northeast Florida Coordinated Mobility Plan are met. The Competitive Selection Committee will
then follow the procedures herein to select the projects to be funded during the upcoming year. Each
Competitive Selection Committee member/agency shall have one vote or submit one ranking for each
application or project submitted.

Grant Application Tips
   1. Each application will be scored based on the merit of the project submitted in criteria 1 through 5.
   2. Criteria 6 will be scored at an agency level.
   3. Submit only one project per application. Do not combine an operational project with a capital
      project or different operational projects in one application.
   4. Each agency may submit more than one application.
   5. A project is defined as a unique product or service. It should have a specific objective to be
      achieved. For example, a project to operate a transportation service from point A to point B is one
      project. Providing transportation service with three different routes in a large area is three projects
      and separate applications should be submitted for each route/project.




                                                      8
Grant Application Evaluation Criteria
Applications for project funding will be evaluated on overall achievement of one or more of the Northeast
Florida Coordinated Plan Strategic Goals. Unless there is sufficient funding in the year’s appropriations
to cover all eligible requests, the Competitive Selection Committee will use the following criteria to
evaluate applications.
   1. Overall achievement of one or more of the Northeast Florida Coordinated Plan Strategic
      Goals. Achievement of any goals listed in the Northeast Florida Coordinated Plan should be well
      documented in the project description. (Maximum points = 20)
   2. Coverage of regional application - measured by number of counties in the regional that may
      benefit from the project (2.5 pts for each county benefiting. Maximum points = 15)
   3. Extent to which low-income persons are served. Applicants that maximize transportation benefits
      to low-income persons to and from jobs and activities related to their employment and to support
      reverse commute projects. Those serving the highest percentage will be ranked higher. (Maximum
      points = 20)
   4. Maximizes Project Cost Effectiveness - Identifies cost effective measures such as maximizing use
      and operating efficiency of existing vehicles, elimination of duplicative services, coordination with
      other Federal programs, and development of financial partnerships. Applicants providing
      transportation service for more hours and with fuller vehicles will be ranked higher. To preserve
      transportation infrastructure, existing service may be ranked higher than establishing new services.
      (Maximum points = 15)
   5. Appropriate Performance Measures and Goals - Quantitative and standard performance
      measures and goals are identified and are achievable. (Maximum points = 15) Two measures
      established for the JARC Program are:
          a. Actual or estimated number of jobs that can be accessed as a result of geographic or
              temporal coverage of JARC projects implemented in the current reporting year.
          b. Actual or estimated number of rides (as measured by one-way trips) provided as a result
              of the JARC projects implemented in the current reporting year.
   6. Fiscal and Managerial Capability - Ability to provide efficient and effective transportation services
      including scheduling, dispatching, compliance with reporting and monitoring requirements; and
      funding sources which will enable the applicant to provide required local match. Applicants with well-
      documented budgets and good fiscal capability demonstrated by the correctness and completeness
      of their application, by prior audits, proper maintenance of vehicles as demonstrated by miles at
      replacement, and previous timeliness and accuracy of required reports, will be ranked higher.
      (Maximum points = 15)




                                                    9
                               Grant Award Process
To notify an applicant (recipient) approved by the Competitive Selection Committee for an award, the
JTA will send a “Notice of Grant Award” to the recipient with instructions to sign and return it to the JTA.
(See sample notice in the Appendix.)

Grant recipients must agree to comply with all federally-required certifications and assurances in Exhibits
F and Exhibit G, as provided elsewhere in this manual. Grant applicants/recipients must also make
certain assurances and certifications to the JTA, as provided in Exhibit H.

General Instructions on Forms, Certifications, and Exhibits
Each form, exhibit, and certification provides JTA with information it must have to make required
assurances to the Federal government and assists the Competitive Selection Committee in making
decisions on project selection. It is important that each required form, exhibit, and certification be
complete and correct. Applicants should be aware that there are criminal sanctions for furnishing false
information in order to obtain federal grants (18 U.S.C. 1001).

One original application plus eight (8) copies should be prepared on white, 8.5 X 11” paper and securely
clipped (no binders or dividers, please) and submitted to the North Florida Transportation Planning
Organization (TPO) Office, as shown in the Appendix to this manual. Application forms, resolutions,
exhibits, and certifications should be arranged in the order listed in the “Checklist for Application
Completeness”, as provided in this manual, to assure the application is complete. Incomplete, illegible,
or unsigned applications may be rejected.

The original application must be accompanied by a signed cover letter on the agency’s letterhead
and two fully-executed Resolution forms (see Appendix for sample), which includes minimum required
language, from the applicant’s governing board. Resolutions should authorize
       1) Submission of the application;
       2) Signing of the application and certifications/assurances by a designated individual; and
       3) Acceptance of the grant award by the designated individual.

All signatures should be in blue ink by the individual designated by the governing board of the
applicant agency. Blue ink distinguishes an original signature from a photocopy. Only original signature
resolutions, applications, and acceptance of grant awards are acceptable. The eight (8) required copies
of the original application may be photocopies.

Questions regarding Section 5316 applications or the application process should be directed to the JTA
as shown in the Appendix of this manual.

         PART B (Applies to all applicants for operating assistance)
Transportation-Related Operating and Administrative Expenses & Revenues

Calculation of Grant Request
Information regarding the applicant’s transportation-related operating and administrative expenses and
revenues must be provided with the application for Operating Assistance. Forms B-1 and B-2, as
provided in this manual, should be used for this purpose. Form B-1 provides space for the applicant to
show operating and administrative expenses of the service operated/contracted by the applicant. Form
B-1 also provides space to calculate a grant request. However, the grant request cannot be completed
until Form B-2 is completed. Form B-2 provides space for the applicant to show the sources of revenue
proposed to pay for the expenses shown in Form B-1.

The budget line items shown on the forms were originally defined in the Transportation Accounting
Consortium's Model Uniform Accounting System for Rural and Specialized Transportation Providers
(TAC manual). The account numbers in parentheses are the object code numbers for these line items in
the TAC manual and in FTA National Transit Data Reports (NTD). Definitions for expense and revenue
line items are included in the Appendix of this manual.

Applicants should show the transportation-related operating and administrative expenses and revenues
of their agency for the proposed project as projected for the year the Section 5316 grant award is to be
used. For example, the projected expense and revenue budgets for year FY 2008/2009 should be used if
Section 5316 assistance is requested by the applicant for use in FY 2008/2009.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETING FORM B-1.

Applicants should complete both the “Total Expense” and “FTA Eligible Expense” columns of Form B-1.
In completing the form, Community Transportation Coordinators (CTCs) may use expense information
from the budget in their most current TDSP. The “Total Expense” column should show all operating and
administrative expenses associated with the proposed transportation service. The definitions for each
line item code, as provided in the Appendix of this manual, apply. The “FTA Eligible Expense” column
should include only those expenses that are eligible under FTA rules for service provided for qualified
individuals. This means, for example, that expenses for charter service, school bus service,
transportation service not open to the general public, depreciation expense, and other ineligible
expenses would not appear in the “FTA Eligible Expense” column.

After completing the expense columns on Form B-1, applicants should next complete Form B-2 (see
instructions below.)




                                                  17
INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETING FORM B-2.

Applicants should complete both the “Total Revenue” and “Revenue Used as FTA Match” columns of
Form B-2. In completing Form B-2, CTCs may use revenue information from the budget in their most
current TDSP. The “Total Revenue” column should show all revenues used to pay for the expenses
shown in Form B-1, as noted previously. The definitions for each line item code, as provided in the
Appendix of this manual, apply. The “Revenue Used as FTA Match” column separates total revenues
from revenues accepted by FTA as match. This includes revenues in object codes 410, 411, 412, and
430. It also includes revenues in object code 413 EXCEPT for any FTA or other USDOT funds. In other
words, FTA or other USDOT revenues should be deducted from the amount shown in object code 413 in
the “Total Revenue” column, and the balance should be shown in the “Revenue Used as FTA Match”
column.

Next, both columns should be totaled and (e) “Grand Total Revenues” transferred to the grant request
section of Form B-1.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETING THE GRANT REQUEST ON FORM B-1.

To calculate the grant request on Form B-1:

   • Enter the total (a) from the FTA Eligible Expense column of Form B.
   • Enter the passenger fare revenue (b) from the first row of Form B-2.
   • Subtract the passenger fare revenue (b) from the FTA Eligible Expense (a) to determine the
       operating deficit (c).
   • Complete the Section 5316 request (d). Applicants may request no more than 50% of the
       operating deficit. Total revenues may not exceed total costs. Therefore, it may be necessary to
       adjust the Section 5316 request to an amount less than 50% of the deficit calculated.

Applicants must complete the “Current Vehicle and Transportation Equipment Inventory” (Form C-3),
as shown in this manual. The form must include a current list of all vehicles and equipment used by
the applicant to transport individuals, including those bought in previous years with Federal funds;
those bought with other than Federal funds; those now on order; and those to be ordered with grant
awards made in previous years. All columns of the form must be completed. An asterisk (*) should
be placed next to the model year of vehicles to be replaced with the grant being applied for, or with
previous grants. Vehicles operated by the applicant’s contractor or lessee should also be identified,
and the name of the contractor/lessee shown in Exhibit B of the application.



Capital Request
Applicants must complete the “Capital Request”, Form C-4, provided in this manual. The upper part
of the form covers vehicles; the lower, other capital equipment such as radios, computer software,
computer hardware, etc.

NOTE: In the case of vehicles, applicants should be sure to indicate whether the new vehicle is to
replace (R) an older vehicle or expand (E) the fleet by buying a new vehicle. The length of the
vehicle, the number of passenger seats & wheelchair positions, and the type of fuel is also important
because this affects the cost. The Make of the vehicle should not be shown on the form.

Applicants should refer to “What’s on the Market”, located in the Appendix, to identify the most
appropriate vehicle type for its needs, and the estimated cost

The Florida TRIPS program web site at www.tripsflorida.org contains contracts and pricing
information on vehicles available for purchase using Federal funds. The program is managed by the
Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) in Tallahassee and administered by the Center for
Urban Transportation Research (CUTR), located in Tampa

                           2011 Selection and Award Timeline
November 25, 2009 – Applications for funding available
January 15, 2010 – Applications for project funding due
February 2010 – Competitive Selection Committee to score and prioritize project applications
March 2010 – Request submitted to the JTA Board for approval of the program of projects
April 2010 – Submission of the Program of Projects to the FTA for approval
October 1, 2010 – Funding available for approved projects (note: no project funds shall be
obligated or expended until the Sub-Award Agreement has been formally signed by both the
JTA and the Sub-Recipient.)

         Offering a Sub-Award Agreement to the Approved Applicants
The Sub-Recipient Grant Agreement or Sub-Award Agreement is a contract between the sub-
recipient and the Designated Recipient (JTA). The Agreement defines how much funding will be
received and for what purposes the funding will be used. Use of funding or equipment for a service
other than that described in the Agreement without prior permission from the JTA will be cause for
termination of the Agreement and the funding and equipment would be redistributed to other
applicants.
No project funds shall be obligated or expended until the Sub-Award Agreement has been formally
signed by both the JTA and the Sub-Recipient. The Sub-Award Agreement will be prepared by the
JTA and made available for signatures within 90 days following FTA approval of the Program of
Projects and all outstanding award requirements (such as matching) are met.

                     Project Budget Timeframe for Expenditures
The Sub-Award Agreements shall be executed within 60 days following the availability of the Sub-
Award Agreement. The Sub-Award Agreement shall include a time frame for the project expenditures.
Project applications should be drafted to be fully expended during a 12 month period from the start of
the contract period.
All awarded projects must begin during the first nine (9) months of the funding period. Requests for
project extensions of no more than twelve additional months may be made after the formal execution
of the contract and successful start of the project. Such requests require approval of the JTA and
verification of funding terms (to ensure that federal funding availability does not expire prior to
proposed project termination) and match. Agencies awarded project funds that cannot be expended
within the budget period shall formally notify the JTA with a proposed budget revision or release the
funds for reallocation to other eligible projects.

                    Questions & Answers
                                    Excerpts from the US DoT
                Elderly Individuals & Individuals with Disabilities (Section 5310),
                                JARC & New Freedom Programs
                                 Last Updated February 6, 2009
All Programs:
1.   Q. Do applicants have to list the source of non-U.S. DOT funds for the local match?
     A. As a general rule, applicants do not have to list the source of a non-U.S. DOT local match.
     However, FTA grant representatives reserve the right to ask for more detailed information from
     the grantee such as the source of local match.
2.   Q. Are contributions of funds from human service agencies eligible to be used as local match?
     How are these applied as local match?
     A. Local funds and non-U.S. DOT federal funds may be used as local match for these programs.
     If human service agencies are using other federal funds as a source of local match, the grantee
     should verify that those funds are eligible to match transportation projects and are being used for
     eligible costs of the project.
3.   Q. Can revenue from human service transportation contracts be used as local match?
     A. Income from contracts to provide human service transportation may be used either to reduce
     the net project cost (treated as revenue) or to provide local match for New Freedom or JARC
     operating assistance. In either case, the cost of providing the contract service is included in the
     total project cost. FTA program funds may not be used as a source of local match for other FTA
     programs, even when used to contract for service. For example, if a Section 5310 subrecipient
     has a service contract to buy service from a Section 5311 provider, the Section 5311 provider
     may not use the revenue from the Section 5310 service contract as local match for other FTA
     grants.
4.   Q: Can fare-box revenue be used as local match?
     A: Fare box revenue cannot be used as local match; however it can be used to reduce the net
     project cost of a project.
6.   Q. Who is responsible for determining that matching funds are allowable for transportation
     purposes?
     A. The grantee is responsible for ensuring that non-U.S. DOT federal funds may be used to
     match transportation projects and that the funds are available for the project.
9.   Q. Beginning in fiscal year 2008, must MPOs, State DOTs, and other designated recipients have
     a completed coordinated public transit-human service transportation plan in place in accordance
     with the JARC, New Freedom, and Section 5310 programs before they can be awarded any
     program funds?
     A. Yes. FTA expects plans developed for FY 2008 and beyond to include more information than
     plans developed for FY 2007. Please see Chapter V of the program circulars for the required
     elements of coordinated plans.




                                             52
JARC (Section 5316) and New Freedom (Section 5317) Programs:
10.   Q. Can a Small Urbanized Area be a designated recipient?
      A. No. Please see Chapter III, Section 4, ELIGIBLE DIRECT RECIPIENTS, in the JARC and
      New Freedom circulars, stating, “The State is the designated recipient and may apply directly to
      FTA for grant funds for itself and its subrecipients.” This is consistent with the language found in
      49 U.S.C. 5316 and 5317.
14.   Q. What is the difference between a “direct” and a “designated” recipient?
      A. The “designated recipient” is the entity designated, pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 5302(a)(2), by the
      Governor of a State to receive FTA funds. Under the JARC and New Freedom programs, the
      designated recipient is responsible for competitively allocating JARC or New Freedom funds to
      itself and subrecipients in an area. The “direct recipient” is an entity that can apply directly to
      FTA for grant funding they have received through the designated recipient’s competitive selection
      process.
16.   Q. Does the designated recipient have to be a public agency?
      A. Yes, consistent with FTA’s interpretation of 49 U.S.C. 5307(a)(2).
17.   Q. Can the title for vehicles purchased using JARC or New Freedom funds pass from a
      designated recipient through to a subrecipient?
      A. Yes. Please refer to Chapter VI, Section 6 “TITLE TO VEHICLES” and Section 7
      “SATISFACTORY CONTINUING CONTROL” in the circulars. The designated recipient is
      encouraged to either hold title or record a lien against the title to vehicles. This is not mandatory,
      however. What is mandatory is that the designated recipient establish continuing control over the
      vehicles and accept the responsibility for continued public transit use of the vehicles, and more
      particularly use for New Freedom purposes, whether by itself or a subrecipient. When capital
      equipment or facilities are acquired, built, or improved, provisions must be made to assure
      satisfactory continuing control of that capital equipment and facilities. While the designated
      recipient may delegate these responsibilities to a subrecipient, the designated recipient is
      ultimately responsible for compliance with this requirement.
      This means that designated recipients responsible for administering JARC or New Freedom
      funds may hold title to vehicles purchased with Section 5316 or Section 5317 funds, or title may
      be held by a subrecipient.
18.   Q. Which activities are capital and which are operating? Where can grantees find guidance on
      determining the difference? Is there a more detailed listing of eligible capital and operating
      expenses for JARC and New Freedom grants? Specifically, are insurance costs associated with
      some of the New Freedom projects, costs associated with car loan programs, and costs
      associated with voucher programs operating or capital expenses?
      A. The basic definition of an operating cost is something that does not have a useful life of more
      than one year. In contrast, a capital item is usually a tangible item that has a useful life of more
      than one year. For example, vouchers are considered an operating expense, consistent with FTA
      program requirements; insurance is considered an operating expense; a guaranteed loan fund or
      a revolving fund used to make loans are capital expenses; and funds used to pay the
      administrative costs of loan programs are operating expenses. The construction of bus stops,
      installation of elevators, or the purchase of buses are examples of capital expenses. Also,
      mobility management is defined by law as an eligible capital expense. Chapter III of each
      program circular contains a list of eligible activities for the program.




                                               53
20.   Q Can New Freedom funds be used to expand service hours and days for existing fixed route or
      demand responsive services (other than ADA complementary paratransit), and (2) Can NF funds
      be used to fund public transportation services where they currently do not exist?
      A: On January 23, 2008, FTA issued a Notice of Proposed Policy Statement for Eligible New
      Freedom projects in the Federal Register (See Federal Register volume 74, No.14) proposing to
      expand the type of projects it considers to be ``beyond the ADA'' and thus increase the types of
      projects eligible for funding under the New Freedom program. FTA proposes that new or
      expanded fixed route service and new or expanded demand response service would be eligible
      for New Freedom funding provided that:
      (1) The service is identified in the locally developed, coordinated public transit-human services
      transportation plan;
      (2) The service is designed to meet the needs of individuals with disabilities;
      (3) The service removes barriers to transportation and assists persons with disabilities with
      transportation;
      (4) The service was not operational on August 10, 2005, and did not have an identified funding
      source as of August 10, 2005, as evidenced by inclusion in the Transportation Improvement
      Program (TIP) or the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP); and
      (5) The service is not designed to allow an agency to meet its obligations under the ADA or the
      DOT ADA implementing regulations at 49 CFR parts 37 and 38.
      This policy change retains the existing requirement that services under the program be “new”
      services and adopts the interpretation voiced by transportation providers that transit services
      other than those that are required to be implemented under the ADA go “beyond the ADA.”
      Examples of newly eligible projects would be fixed route service extended to serve a congregate
      living facility or a workplace serving large numbers of individuals with disabilities; new or
      expanded demand responsive service, including new hours or days of operation, or increased
      geographic coverage, to meet the needs of individuals with disabilities.
      FTA will consider finalizing this policy change after reviewing comments submitted to the docket
      during the 30-day comment period.
21    Q: Can New Freedom program funds be used to purchase new vehicles designed to
      accommodate oversized wheelchairs or that include multiple securement areas, for use on fixed
      route or demand response service?
       A: Yes. While the New Freedom circular lists the acquisition of vehicles designed to
      accommodate oversized wheelchairs and installing additional securement locations within the
      context of enhancing paratransit services beyond the minimum requirements of the ADA, these
      vehicles can also be put into service on fixed routes and demand response service, provided that
      the service is targeted towards people with disabilities. New Freedom funds can be used to
      acquire the vehicle and fund the labor costs of aids to help drivers assist passengers with over-
      sized wheelchairs.
22    Q: Can a human service transportation provider use New Freedom funds to reduce the cost of
      fares paid by their clients?
      A: No. Although New Freedom program funds can be used to support voucher programs offered
      by human service providers, the vouchers are intended to supplement existing services and
      expand the number of providers available or the number of passengers receiving transportation
      services. Offering reduced fares on an existing service does not meet the New Freedom program
      goal of expanding services. Other Federal funding is available for transit passes.


                                               54
23.   Q: Are there limits on what constitutes an “employment support service” for the purposes of the
      JARC program?
      A: FTA considers job training and childcare to be employment support services because access
      to these services can help low-income persons attract and retain employment. Applicants who
      are considering providing service to destinations other than job training or child care locations
      should contact FTA to determine whether these destinations constitute employment support
      service. Projects that transport children of low-income parents to and from school or after school
      locations do not constitute transportation to employment support services under the JARC
      program and would not be eligible for JARC funds.
24.   Q: Can mobility management projects be funded and implemented over multiple years?
      A: Yes. Although mobility management refers to “short term”: management activities to plan and
      implement coordinated services these activities can occur on a multi-year basis.
25.   Q: Is sidewalk construction an eligible activity under the JARC and New Freedom programs?
      A. Sidewalk construction is not an eligible activity under the JARC program and may be an
      eligible activity under the New Freedom program, provided two conditions are met.
      First, the sidewalk must be constructed in order to provide an accessible path to a bus stop that is
      currently inaccessible. Secondly, the recipient should determine whether Federal highways or
      other funds are available for pedestrian improvements before applying for New Freedom funds for
      this purpose.
26.   Q: Is bus shelter construction an eligible activity under the JARC and New Freedom programs.
      A: Grantees may use JARC funds to construct shelters provided that the shelters are located in
      predominantly low-income areas and along transit routes that connect low-income persons to
      employment or employment-related activities. Shelters can also be installed along routes that
      provide reverse commute service. JARC funds can also be used to make existing shelters
      accessible for people with disabilities, provided that the above conditions apply.
      Grantees may also use New Freedom funds to construct accessible bus shelters or to modify
      existing bus shelters to make them accessible.
27.   Q: Is travel training considered a capital expense on an operating expense under the New
      Freedom program?
      A: The New Freedom program circular treats travel training as a component of mobility
      management, which is considered a capital expense and is eligible for up to an 80 percent
      Federal match.
Planning Process:
28.   Q. Do the FTA regional offices have to verify that projects are derived from coordinated plans?
      A. Yes, in coordination with the grant application. Direct and designated recipients must certify
      that projects to be funded are derived from a coordinated plan and the grant application should
      include a page reference to the plan. In reviewing the application the FTA Regional Office needs
      to ensure that the grantee provides this information in the program of projects (POP). Appendix A
      of the circulars includes the following language: “Project activities shall be sufficiently described
      to assist the reviewer in determining eligibility under the program and shall include the page
      number of the coordinated plan from which the project was derived, as well as the date the plan
      was adopted.”

31.   Q. Do projects have to be in both the STIP/TIP?
      A: If the project is within the planning boundary of a Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO),
      the project has to be in both the TIP and the STIP. Projects in nonurbanized areas only have to
      be in the STIP. Depending on State or local requirements, the projects may show on the
      aggregate (program level) or be listed on the individual project level listing. TIP and STIP listings
      must be consistent with the metropolitan and statewide transportation plans.
Competitive Selection Process:
33.   Q. For projects or needs that cross UZA and rural or small urbanized boundaries, whose
      coordinated plans or competitive selection process should we compete in?
      A. This is a local decision. If the service is completely located within an urbanized area,
      providers should compete for those funds in the urbanized area; and in a rural competition if the
      area is rural. If the service is targeted to serve the residents of the rural area (even if the provider
      is located within the urbanized area) the service is eligible for rural funding. Ideally in this
      situation the coordinated plan boundaries could include services in urbanized, rural, and small
      urban areas; however, this does not have to be the case.
34.   Q. May a stakeholder or transportation provider that meets the criteria of both urban and rural
      compete within both categories?
      A. A transportation provider that provides services in rural, small urban, and/or large urbanized
      areas can compete and therefore receive funding in any area to provide services.
35.   Q. May a transportation provider bid on projects if it participated in the coordinated planning
      process?
      A. Yes.
36.   Q. Is a transportation provider required to participate in the coordinated planning process in
      order to bid on projects?
      A. No.
37.   Q. Is it acceptable to compete different project components/costs in each of the categories,
      urban and rural?
      A. Yes, This is acceptable.
38.   Q. Do projects have to be specifically listed or can they be “generally” consistent with the
      coordinated plan?
      A. Projects do not have to be listed specifically, but they have to be consistent with and derived
      from the coordinated plan. Chapter IV of the circulars contains examples of different types of
      competitive selection processes. These examples also illustrate how projects may be derived
      from the coordinated plan without being specifically listed in the plan.
General Questions/Suggestions:
41.   Q. If a project includes purchase of a vehicle for a specific program and the program ceases to
      exist before useful life of the vehicle is achieved, what happens to the vehicle?
      A. Grantees must follow the requirements of the Common Rule (49 CFR Part 18 or Part 19,
      depending on the nature of the grantee). This information is also referenced in Chapter VI,
      Section 5 in the program circulars.
