PUBLIC NOTICE FTA Section 5310, 5311 and STIF (Formerly STF)

PUBLIC NOTICE FTA Section 5310, 5311 and STIF (Formerly STF) NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Yamhill County Board of Commissioners (BOC) intends to apply to the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) for Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Section 5310 and Section 5311 grant funds and State Transportation improvement Fund (STIF), formerly known as Special Transportation Fund (STF). The Yamhill County Transit Advisory Committee (YCTAC) is responsible for reviewing all applications and will make recommendations to the Board of Commissioners. The FTA Section 5310 Enhanced Mobility for Seniors and People with Disabilities formula funding is for capital costs for serving older adults and persons with disabilities. ODOT allocates these funds to the County/Yamhill County Transit (YCT). YCT works with local stakeholders to allocate funds locally. YCT typically uses the funds for service delivery contracts in addition to capital costs such as vehicles. The local match rate is 10.27%. Interested transportation providers, who transport county residents who are older adults or persons with disabilities, may apply for funding of programs and projects that maintain, enhance, or expand transportation services in Yamhill County. Funding is available for preventive maintenance and/or capital. The FTA Section 5311 Formula Grants are for areas other than urbanized areas. Formula funding is for operations and capital costs for rural transit services. YCT typically uses these funds for its operating contract including contracts with third party contractors. The local match rate is 43.92%. The Oregon Special Transportation Fund (STF) formula funding for transportation services to older adults and persons with disabilities has been transferred to the new State Transportation Improvement Fund (STIF) so all requests for STF funds must go through the STIF process. (Refer to the public notice regarding State Transportation Improvement Fund STIF). YCTAC met on December 20, 2022, from 3:00-5:00 p.m. to discuss the STIF projects and to prioritize the projects. YCTAC met again on January 12, 2023, from 3:30-5:00 p.m. to finalize the ranking and to make a recommendation for the Board of Commissioners to approve the STIF plan and the FTA Section 5310 and 5311 grant applications. The January 19th YCTAC meeting will be held virtually via TEAMS. Interested parties may attend the meeting via Microsoft TEAMS. If you are interested in participating by TEAMS or by phone, please contact our offices at 503.474.4910, 48 hours before the meeting begins. The Board of Commissioners will approve the submittal of the 5310, 5311, and STIF applications at their meeting on January 19, 2023.
