Annually, the Mecklenburg County Department of Social Services requests a public hearing to receive comments regarding the FY20 Urban Grant.  This grant provides funding for the operating and capital requirements of the Mecklenburg County Department Social Services’ Mecklenburg Transportation System (MTS) Unit of the Services for Adults Division. This grant is to provide financial assistance for the support of public transportation services in urbanized areas. This includes planning activities, administrative needs, purchase of capital equipment or facilities to assist in the provision of transit services in urban areas of Mecklenburg County. The Charlotte Area Transit System is the designated recipient of Section 5307 funds in the Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization (CRPTO).  A formula was developed to share the funding with all eligible transit operators in the CRPTO. The North Carolina Department of Transportation’s Public Assistance Division (NCDOT PTD) will be the direct recipient for the transit operators in NC which includes MTS. 


FY20 FTA Section 5307 Formula Funding is $1,034,620, with a 50% Operating match and a 10% Capital Match (County) and 10% Capital Match (State).
