|Federal Program Description||
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 provides new funding for, among many other categories, public transportation capital projects. This included apportionment tables for the $5.4 billion provided to urbanized areas through the Section 5307 program. Funds were apportioned directly to the 38 urbanized areas over 1 million population and 114 urbanized areas with populations between 200,000 and 1 million, and to 52 States and territories for urbanized areas under 200,000 in population.
The funds may be used for any capital purpose eligible under 49 U.S.C. 5302(a)(1), including such activities as vehicle replacements, facilities renovation or construction, preventive maintenance, and mobility management. States and metropolitan areas may transfer Surface Transportation Program (STP) funds allocated by FHWA to the Section 5307 program for ready to go transit projects.
