  • Metropolitan Planning and State Planning and Research programs (49 U.S.C. § 5305)
  • Capital Investment program (49 U.S.C. § 5309)
  • Elderly Individuals and Individuals with Disabilities program (49 U.S.C. § 5310)
  • Non-urbanized Area Formula program (49 U.S.C. § 5311)
  • Job Access and Reverse Commute program (49 U.S.C. § 5316)
  • New Freedom program (49 U.S.C. § 5317)

SMRs also ensure the programs are administered in accordance with federal public transportation law (49 U.S.C. Chapter 53), federal transportation law provisions, and FTA requirements, and are meeting program objectives.
