About the Data

FTA’s Statistical Summaries provide detailed analyzed data about grant funds awarded and agency expenditures for all of FTA’s major financial aid programs, such as urban and rural formula grants, Capital Investment Grants, Bus and Bus Facilities Grants and Metropolitan and Statewide Planning. The data used in the Statistical Summaries are compiled from the capital, operating, and planning assistance grants to transit authorities, states, planning agencies, and other units of local government and eligible recipients.

The Fiscal Year 2015 Statistical Summaries represents the data from the final year of the “Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century” or MAP-21 authorization. Programs authorized under SAFETEA – LU are included as well, until the funds obligated under those programs have been fully expended. Certain programs were also repealed under MAP-21 (see above) and therefore will not be represented in future statistical summaries once the funding has been fully expended.

FY 2013 was the first year that FTA incorporated the 2010 census data into its formula apportionments. Therefore, FY 2013 through FY 2015 were apportioned and obligated to UZAs as defined by the 2010 census.

For carryover funds prior to FY 2013, (1) if the UZA name associated with the UZA code changed in the 2010 census (due to mergers, splits, or name change), then the obligations are shown under the new name; or (2) if the UZA was deleted in the 2010 census, the obligations are shown under the old name associated with the obsolete UZA code.
