OCTA Receives $149 Million FFGA for Streetcar Project

FTA announced a $149 million Full Funding Grant Agreement (FFGA) Nov. 30 with the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA), Orange, CA, for the 4.1-mile Orange County Streetcar (formerly known as Santa Ana/Garden Grove Streetcar). Funding will be provided through FTA’s Capital Investment Grants (CIG) Program.

DOT Secretary Elaine L. Chao said the investment “will help expand public transportation options in Southern California, improving mobility and access to jobs for the riders who take public transit every day.”

FTA Acting Administrator K. Jane Williams said, “This project is a good example of leveraging federal funds to support locally driven transportation priorities. It will provide important multimodal connections to Amtrak, Metrolink commuter rail, Greyhound and local bus service.”

This FFGA is the third signed under the current administration. FTA has advanced funding for 17 new CIG projects throughout the nation under this administration since Jan. 20, 2017, totaling approximately $4.8 billion in funding commitments.
