Kootenai Metropolitan Planning Organization (KMPO), as the metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for Kootenai County, works in collaboration with the Idaho Transportation Department and the other four MPO’s around the State of Idaho to conduct the call for applications, prioritization, and selection of programs or projects that desire to utilize Federal Transit Administration Section 5310 small urban funds for elderly and disabled services into and within the Coeur d’ Alene Urbanized Area.

Eligible projects include both traditional operations and capital investments, as well as nontraditional investments, beyond the ADA complementary paratransit services.
