PURPOSE:
Guilford County Transportation and Mobility Services (TAMS) is a sub-recipient under the City's FY2019 FTA Section 5339 grant. Their project was the acquisition of two (2) staff support vehicles. Guilford County TAMS notified the City they are unable to utilize these funds; thus, these federal funds reverted back to the City.

Guilford County TAMS notified the City that it was unable to utilize these funds which resulted in the federal funds, in the amount of $40,403, reverting back to the City as the designated recipient for FTA Section 5339 funding. The City will utilize these funds to purchase one (1) additional replacement less than 30 foot paratransit vehicle. The City is required to provide a 15% match to these funds, in the amount of $7,130.
