ARRA Transit Programs

ARRA appropriated $8.4 billion for three major transit programs. ARRA funds may be used only for capital projects (as defined in 49 USC 5302(a)(1)), and no local share is required. Less than one percent of the total funding ($64 million) was made available to FTA for oversight and administration of the ARRA program. The oversight amount was subtracted from the program funding levels described below before apportionment or allocation of the funds.

Transit Capital Assistance

A total of $6.9 billion was appropriated for transit capital assistance.
