Fiscal Note
Funds under this grant will be used to support the Transit Division budget as well as some pass through funds to Dane County to support County programs enhancing the public transit experience for seniors and people with disabilities. Up to 80% of the total project cost of $288,100 is funded by USDOT/FTA with the remaining local share ($63,100) to be funded by the City of Madison ($27,500) and by Dane County Department of Human Resources ($35,600). Grant revenues and the City's local share are included in the Metro Transit 2014 adopted operating budget, so no additional appropriation is required. In addition, Metro Transit will be reimbursed for Grant Administration by USDOT/FTA. Please see the attached document "Section 5310 Program of Projects" for a full budget breakdown.

A separate 13(c) agreement is a required precondition for receiving Federal grant funds. Any costs associated with the 13(c) agreement are included in the Transit Division operating budget.
