New Transportation Grants Available

Governor Andrew Cuomo announced over $32 million in federal funding is available for capital and operating assistance to support public transportation in cities with populations of less than 50,000.

In a news release the Governor’s office says the Formula Grants for Rural Areas program will provide up to 80 percent of capital and 50 percent of operating project-related cost, with the remaining funds provided by New York State and project sponsors.

Applications for the program will be accepted through April 10.
