FTA Section 5316 Jobs Access Reverse Commute Grant Program (JARC)

The JARC program was authorized under SAFETEA-LU, which expired on September 30, 2012. This program has been repealed under MAP-21.  However, SAFETEA-LU provisions still apply to funds made available in FY 2012 and prior fiscal years.  Fresno COG will continue to administer previously awarded JARC projects. Under MAP-21, JARC-type projects can be funded through either FTA Section 5307 (urban) or 5311 (rural).

The JARC program goal is to improve access to transportation services to employment and employment related activities for welfare recipients and eligible low-income individuals and to transport residents of urbanized areas and non-urbanized areas to suburban employment opportunities. Toward this goal, FTA provides financial assistance for transportation services planned, designed, and carried out to meet the transportation needs of eligible low-income individuals in all areas. Another goal is to implement coordination of Federally assisted programs and services in order to make the most efficient use of federal resources.

FTA Section 5317 New Freedom Program

The New Freedom program was authorized under SAFETEA-LU, which expired on September 30, 2012. This program has been repealed under MAP-21.  However, SAFETEA-LU provisions still apply to funds made available in FY 2012 and prior fiscal years.  Fresno COG will continue to administer previously awarded New Freedom projects. Under MAP-21, New Freedom-type projects can be funded through FTA Section 5310.

The New Freedom program goal is to provide new public transportation services to overcome existing barriers facing Americans with disabilities seeking integration into the workforce and full participation into society. Lack of adequate transportation is a primary barrier to work for individuals with disabilities. New Freedom also seeks to expand the transportation mobility options available to person with disabilities beyond requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (42 U.S.C. 12101, et seq.). The definition of "new service" is any service or activity that was not implemented or operational before August 10, 2005.
