Federal Transit Assistance Programs

These tables are supplemental web-only tables that provide additional information to a report entitled Federal Transit Assistance Programs, by Tim Ransdell and Shervin Boloorian. This report is part of a larger series, Federal Formula Grants and California, which provides detailed information on California’s current and historical funding under the major federal grants and the formulas used to determine California’s share of funding under various specific grants. All reports in this series are posted on this website. This particular report describes the data sources and formula programs used to determine the share each state receives in formula transit funds. It then discusses capital investment grants and loans, which support projects too large in scale to be sustained consistently by formula apportionments alone. Finally, it examines in detail the various proposals from the White House, the Senate, and the House for reauthorizing TEA-21.
