The City and County of Honolulu announces the 2017 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 Service Transportation Coordination Plan – to Improve TheHandi-Van On-Time Performance and Trip Length. Honolulu’s proposes to meet this goal by utilizing the 5310 funding to purchase new TheHandi-Van vehicles. The City will also evaluate proposals from other eligible organizations.
