The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) provides grant funding through the Section 5310 Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities Transportation Program to improve mobility for older adults and individuals with disabilities. The purpose of the Elder and Persons with Disabilities Transportation Program Committee is to develop the prioritization of applicants to receive FTA Section 5310 grant funds for capital and operating expenses in the Phoenix-Mesa Urbanized Area (UZA).

The City of Phoenix Public Transit Department is now the Designated Recipient for the FTA Section 5310 Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities Transportation Program for the Phoenix-Mesa Urbanized Area (UZA). The Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) has assumed the programming responsibilities, and coordinates the Section 5310 application process in coordination with the City of Phoenix Public Transit Department.
