BACKGROUND/JUSTIFICATION:

Annually, the Mecklenburg County Department of Social Services submits a Rural Operating Assistance Program (ROAP) grant application. This NCDOT grant provides funding for transportation services to elderly and disabled citizens, Work First clients requiring transitional/employment transportation services, and the general public living outside the urban area boundary (not the metropolitan boundary of Mecklenburg County) and do not have a human service agency or organization paying for their transportation. The Mecklenburg Transportation System (MTS) of DSS' Services for Adults Division operates this program.  Funds for these programs were estimated in the adopted FY19 budget.

 

The Elderly and Disabled Transportation Assistance Program (EDTAP) Formula allocation is $292,720 with no required County match. The EDTAP provides operating assistance for the public transportation of elderly and disabled citizens.

 

The Employment Transportation Program (ETP) Formula allocation is $220,146 with no required County match.  The Employment Transportation Assistance Program provides operating assistance for the public transportation of persons with employment related transportation needs.

 

The Rural General Public Program (RGP) Formula allocation is $46,272 with a required County match of ten percent.  This is a decrease of $416 from the FY19 budgeted amount. The RGP provides operating assistance for the public transportation of persons living in non-urban areas of Mecklenburg County. The required county matching funds are included in the DSS FY19 operating budget.
