WASHINGTON – The Lower Rio Grande Valley Development Council Corporation (LRGVDC) was awarded two federal grants to help transit providers in both the Harlingen and McAllen Urbanized Areas (UZAs) continue to operate throughout the novel coronavirus outbreak, U.S. Senator John Cornyn announced today. The Harlingen UZA will receive $3,717,342, while the McAllen UZA will receive $10,119,614, for a total allocation of $13,836,956. The funding, which was appropriated by Congress in March as part of the CARES Act, comes through the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). There remains a combined $2,830,000 in CARES Act allocations that the LRGDVCC will apply for at a future date. You can read more about these grants here.

“While Texans continue doing everything they can in response to the spread of the coronavirus, we in Washington should give them everything they need to succeed,” said Sen. Cornyn.“I’m thankful to the Trump Administration for encouraging transit improvement in the Rio Grande Valley.”

The grants will support operating, administrative, and preventive maintenance costs in order to respond to and recover from the COVID-19 public health emergency. Expenses will include salaries and wages, fringe benefits, services, fuel vehicle maintenance, materials and supplies, utilities, replacement of one ADA vehicle, installation of a new farebox collection system, and any other related activity or expense.
