Title

Resolution for a Public Transportation Grant Agreement - Public Transit Block Grant Program for RTS Operating Assistance for FY 2020/2021 (B)

 

Explanation

This item is a request to adopt a Resolution authorizing the City Manager to execute a Public Transportation Grant Agreement (PTGA) between the City of Gainesville and Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) to accept the allocation for Gainesville of $2,313,414 from the Public Transit Block Grant Program for FY 2020/2021 Operating Assistance.


FDOT allocates state block grant funds for public transit systems each year. The allocations are based on a three-part formula that includes population, ridership, and vehicle miles operated. For FY 2020/2021, the allocation for Gainesville is $2,313,414, an increase of $173,384 from last year’s allocation. The RTS block grant provides a 50% reimbursement for eligible operating costs associated with operating, maintaining, and managing a transportation system.

 

FDOT requires the governing board of each public transit system to adopt a resolution authorizing the acceptance of these funds.

 

Fiscal Note

The Public Transportation Grant Agreement requires the City of Gainesville to match the funding. Funds in the amount of $2,313,414 for this match are available in the FY 2020/2021 RTS operating budget.

 

Recommendation

The City Commission adopt the Resolution.
