Resolution for a Public Transportation Grant Agreement - Public Transit Block Grant Program for RTS Operating Assistance for FY 2021/2022 (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 $2,371,784 from the Public Transit Block Grant Program for FY 2021/2022 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 2021/2022, the allocation for Gainesville is $2,371,784, an increase of $58,370 from last year’s allocation. The RTS block grant provides a 100% 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.

 

Strategic Recommendation:  This item is connected to Goal 3: A Great Place to Live and Experience in the City’s Strategic Plan and is a high priority item
