Special Community Mobility Projects (SCMP)
SCMP Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)
1. What's different for 2016 from the 2015 Application Form?
Ans. The only new change is the due date is Monday, Oct 31, 2016, before 4 pm. Send a completed application to Fernando deAragon at the Ithaca-Tompkins County Transportation Council.
In 2103, Tompkins County, Ithaca-Tompkins County Transportation Council (ITCTC) and Tompkins Consolidated Area Transit, Inc. (TCAT) agreed to establish a local program to encourage innovative community mobility projects in Tompkins County.
The County's Special Community Mobility Program replaced the former Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Sec. 5316 Job Access program. The FTA Sec 5307 urban transit formula includes a new factor related to people with income under the federal poverty level. The amount for the poverty factor is estimated at $90,000 per year. We set this aside for our Special Community Mobility Projects program (SPMC). Every Fall, ITCTC solicits applications for SPMC projects from mostly community non-profit agencies. Proposals are vetted through the coordinated planning process, a county-transit agency group and are referred to the ITCTC for an award.
