Section 5310 Grant Program
The Section 5310 Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities Program is designed to enhance mobility for seniors and people with disabilities, while also continuing eligibility of activities that were under the former Section 5310 and New Freedom Programs.
Specialized Transportation
The human services transportation provisions of the federal Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) aim to improve transportation services for seniors, individuals with disabilities, and low income individuals by ensuring that communities coordinate transportation resources provided through multiple federal programs.
Title VI and Environmental Justice
It has been The Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA's) and the Federal Transit Administration's (FTA's) longstanding policy to actively ensure nondiscrimination under Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act in federally funded activities. Under Title VI and related statutes, each federal agency is required to ensure that no person is excluded from participation in, denied the benefit of, or subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, sex, disability. The Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987 clarified the intent of Title VI to include all programs and activities of federal-aid recipients, subrecipients, and contractors whether those programs and activities are federally funded or not.
Transit Planning
Transit Planning includes documents that guide the operating and capital improvements for Green Bay Metro, provide insight into current ridership, and help assess current conditions of transit facilities.
Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)
Federal planning regulations, which govern the planning process in urbanized areas, require the preparation of a Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) consisting of projects for a minimum of four years. Proposed roadway and transit projects must be included in an adopted TIP to be eligible for federal aid.

These performance measures are identified in the MPO's 2035 Long-Range Transportation Plan. The main categories include: Transportation Facilities, Transit Operations, Transit Capital, Specialized Transportation Services, Safety, System Operations and Congestion Management , Environmental Justice, and Adopted Plans and Studies.
