The City and County of Honolulu announces the 2021 Call for Projects for the Federal Transit Administration Section 5310 grant program. Section 5310 – Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities – provides funds to improve mobility for seniors and individuals with disabilities by removing barriers to transportation services and expanding transportation mobility options.
Honolulu’s priority is to fund projects that enable the City to meet its top goal in the Human Services Transportation Coordination Plan – to Improve TheHandi-Van On-Time Performance and Trip Length. Honolulu proposes to meet this goal by utilizing the Section 5310 funding to purchase new TheHandi-Van vehicles. The City will also evaluate proposals from other eligible organizations.
For project submittal requirements, please contact the Department of Transportation Services via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 808-768-8373 or 808-768-8381. The City’s coordinated transportation plan can be found online at http:// www.honolulu.gov/dtshstc. All project submittals are due to DTS staff by October 20, 2021.
