The FFY 2013 awards cycle was the first using Section 5310 funds appropriated from MAP-21 legislation, which consolidated the former Section 5310 program (Transportation for Elderly Persons and Persons with Disabilities) with the Section 5317 program (New Freedom Program). Eligible recipients included private non-profit organizations, operators of public transportation, and state or local governmental authorities that are approved by the State to coordinate services for seniors and persons with disabilities and certified that there are no non-profit organizations readily available in the area to provide service.
