FTA Seeks Applications for $30 Million in Ferry Funds

FTA is seeking applications through Oct. 23 for approximately $30 million in Fiscal Year 2017 competitive grant funding under the Passenger Ferry Grant Program.

“Waterways define and shape the economies of many of our communities, and in these places passenger ferry service is essential,” said FTA Executive Director Matthew Welbes. “Ferry services provide a crucial lifeline, and we must ensure that they are safe and dependable for the people who rely on them.”

FTA will award competitive grants to states and public entities to repair and modernize ferryboats, terminals and related facilities and equipment, support existing passenger ferry service and establish new service. ­Eligible applicants must be designated recipients or eligible direct recipients of Section 5307 funds, which include public entities engaged in providing a public transportation passenger ferry service in urbanized areas.
