This catalogue is designed to serve as a reference for public transportation or "special transportation" funding sources. State administered financial and technical aid programs are described, and a number of local tax revenue sources that can be used for public transportation financing are reviewed by analyzing local tax enabling legistation. Federal funding sources are described, and federal programs are listed and described by department or agency and brief excerpts are provided for each funding program. Local tax revenue and other financial resources that can be used to provide local matching funds for state and federal programs are described. The catalogue also describes how certain programs can be consolidated for joint funding as well as funding sources that may be currently unused in the Greater Bridgeport Region. A table is provided which gives a brief summary of Federal Public Transportation Funding Sources. The table indicates whether funds can be used for financing operating costs, capital costs or labor costs, who is eligible under the funding program, and what types are eligible for funding.
