Section 5311 Program
The Section 5311 program makes federal funds available for the development, implementation, and promotion of public transportation systems in rural and small urban areas. The Connecticut Department of Transportation's State Management Plan (SMP) describes the Department's policies and procedures for administering the Section 5311 program. It is designed to assist current and potential Section 5311 subrecipients in fulfilling federal and state requirements under the program.
The SMP has been updated to reflect changes noted in the latest Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Circular 9040.1G "FORMULA GRANTS FOR RURAL AREAS: PROGRAM GUIDANCE AND APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS" dated October 24, 2014.
