SECTION 9 FORMULA GRANT PROGRAM

Revenues are appropriated by Congress from the General Fund which are restricted to Bus and Rail capital expenses. Funds are allocated on a formula basis to each urbanized area in the nation. Funds may be used for highway projects in “Transportation Management Areas” (all areas over 200,000 and any other areas which the Governor requests), if all needs related to the Americans with Disabilities Act are met, the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) approves, and there is a balanced local approach to funding highways and transit.
