Background Discussion

The Manatee County Government serves as the Community Transportation Coordinator (CTC) for the Manatee County service area, pursuant to Chapter 427 Florida Statutes, and Rule 41-2 FAC. The CTC is responsible for coordinating service providers for Transportation Disadvantaged (TD) services.

Any agency or organization in the coordinated system requesting Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Section 5310 grant funding for the purchase of vehicles to provide TD transportation services must enter into or renew a coordination agreement yearly with the CTC.  This a required part of the FTA Section 5310 grant application process. The FDOT serves as the Designated Recipient for FTA Section 5310 grant funding and reviews applications from requesting private non-profit agencies. As the FTA Section 5310 grant cycle is now underway, several nonprofit organizations are requesting new or renewal agreements with the CTC (i.e., Manatee County).
