Senior Mini-Grant provides funding for specialized transportation services for seniors whose special needs cannot be met by conventional transit or paratransit services.
SANDAG currently administers the Section 5310 and Senior Mini-Grant programs.
It establishes a regional strategy to provide transportation to recognized transportation-disadvantaged groups, including seniors, individuals with disabilities, and persons with limited means.
The plan also combines the regional requirement for a Short-Range Transit Plan with the federal requirement for a Coordinated Plan into one planning document.
Requirements mandate that a competitive selection process be held to award these program monies to eligible recipients.
