These FY14 grants represent the first year federal and state transit funds have been awarded through a newly developed web-based grant application system. This round of funding has been awarded to Councils on Aging, Private non-Profits, Regional Transit Authorities, and Private for-Profits across the Commonwealth.

A list of the award recipients is available on the Community Transit Grants website.

The FTA and the Commonwealth provide financial assistance to states and local recipients through a number of programs to develop new transit systems and improve, maintain, and operate existing systems.
