Announced in July 2021, the Integrated Mobility Division (IMD) is taking steps to transition the administration of the Urban Formula Program under 49 U.S.C. § 5307 to the respective urbanized areas. This transition of administrative responsibility from NCDOT to its recipients will ensure direct access to funding, as direct recipient of FTA, and overall greater autonomy of their access to this program. Working in close partnership with the impacted systems and respective MPOs, IMD has complete confidence in the abilities of local planners and transit professionals to provide appropriate transit solutions to meet the growing demands of North Carolina's urban communities. This action will enable NCDOT to enhance that transportation network across the state by allowing more autonomy, quicker access to funding and more funding overall.
To the greatest extent possible, various sources, training and FAQs will be updated regularly and provided on our website. IMD, in cooperation with RLS, will provide direct technical assistance and supportive Direct Recipient training and FTA onboarding throughout this process.
