Federal Grants Management

The Council receives federal funding - primarily from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) - to support locally planned, constructed and operated public transportation systems. The Council is responsible for managing federally-funded transit projects in accordance with federal requirements. 

Some projects are implemented by subrecipients (or subgrantees) through FTA financial assistance awarded by the Council. Managing Federally Funded Projects: A Project Manager's Guide (119 pages, pdf) provides both Council staff and subrecipients with guidelines on all aspects of the grant process, from initial application through invoicing and reporting requirements.
