Instructions Show/Hide

An estimated total of $6.6 million in Federal Transit Administration (FTA) funding is available from the RTO program to support projects carried out by regional partners from July 2019 through June 2022. Because funding comes from federal sources, there are certain requirements that applicants must meet to be eligible to receive funding. Government agencies, colleges, universities, public school districts or schools (K-8), and non-profit organizations are eligible to apply for an RTO grant. Private, for-profit organizations are not eligible to directly receive FTA funding. All applicants must also have or obtain a DUNS number, free from Note: It is possible that a DUNS number or IDN may not be in the SAM search site or IRS select check site. The search sites are only as good as the data provided, and some organizations may not have allowed their records to be publicly available. The SAM and IRS sites are simply courtesy tools, and they will not impact the ability to apply for a grant or submit an application.
