State Management Plan
The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) provides financial assistance to states through a number of programs to develop new transit systems and improve, maintain, and operate existing systems. FTA requires that each state adopt policies and procedures to be used in administering FTA Title 49 USC Sections 5310, 5311, and 5339 grant programs and produce a plan describing the state’s policies and procedures for the state-managed portion of these programs. This State Management Plan for Federal Transit Administration Public Transportation Programs describes Washington state’s administrative policies and procedures for these FTA programs. Although the §5316 and §5317 programs have been retired with the implementation of Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21), WSDOT administers prior years’ funds until they are exhausted.
