The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) is accepting applications from eligible agencies and organization for the Federal Fiscal Years (FFY) 2008 2009 Job Access and Reverse Commute (JARC) and FFY 2007, 2008, and 2009 New Freedom Grant Program. JARC helps fund transportation services and supporting activities that facilitate access to jobs for lower income persons as well as reverse commute trips for the general public. The New Freedom program seeks to reduce barriers to transportation services and expand the transportation mobility options available to people with disabilities beyond the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. Both programs apply to existing and proposed services within Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, and Mercer counties. Applications must be submitted by 5 p.m., February 27, 2009.
DVRPC, as the metropolitan planning organization (MPO), solicits project proposals, facilitates the selection process, and evaluates the consistency of proposed projects with the adopted regional Coordinated Human Service Transportation Plan and appropriate local county human service plans. Approved projects approvals are added to the regional Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).
