  • Abstract:
    This report provides information on FY 2016 training, technical assistance, and standards development projects authorized by Federal public transportation law 49 U.S.C. § 5314 (Section 5314). These projects further key public transportation goals, as authorized by Section 5314. This report includes information on FTA’s human resources and training projects and the Workforce Development initiative. Also included is information on the National Transit Institute (NTI), and its training and educational programs for federal, state, and local transportation employees, US citizens, and foreign nationals engaged or to be engaged in government-aid public transportation work. To meet its technical assistance and workforce development requirements, Section 5314 authorizes FTA to issue grants, contracts, and cooperative agreements to achieve impacts to 1) more effectively and efficiently provide public transportation service and 2) improve public transportation. Projects in Section 5314 promote FTA’s strategic goals of economic competitiveness, environmental sustainability, and improving the quality of life in communities. In 2016, FTA approved $7.06 million and obligated $10.3 million under Section 5314 for technical assistance, standards, and training projects awarded to prestigious academic institutions, public transportation associations, non-profit organizations, and others in various public transportation disciplines. This mix of local, state, regional, and national grantees ensures a spectrum of perspectives that enhance the reliability, validity, and generalizability of technical assistance and standards development projects.
