BOSTON – The Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority and the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe have been selected to receive new vehicles as part of a state-wide grant allocation.

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation has announced a number of awards through the state’s annual Community Transit Grant Program.

This year, the funding effort has allocated 153 vans and mini buses to 37 bay-state organizations. Additionally more than 1.8 million dollars in cash was provided to 18 different entities for various operating and management projects.

Recipients include Regional Transit Authorities, municipalities, Councils on Aging, and eligible non-profit organizations.

“The Community Transit Grant Program is a vital part of the Commonwealth’s efforts to accommodate and maintain the independence of an increasingly aging population,” said MassDOT Secretary and CEO Stephanie Pollack.

“We are happy to distribute these funds in order to help senior citizens and others with disabilities stay active and engaged in their communities across the Commonwealth.”

On Cape, the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe will receive one vehicle, while the Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority is slated to get 16.

In total, MassDOT plans to distribute $10,207,139 of federal and state funds for vehicles, operating projects, and mobility management projects in this round of the program.
