ARDOT Awarded $42.7 Million for COVID-19 Recovery

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

Washington, DC--July 10, 2020….U.S. Senators John Boozman and Tom Cotton--along with Congressmen Rick Crawford, French Hill, Steve Womack, and Bruce Westerman--applauded the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) for awarding $42.7 million to the Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) in support of the state's public transit systems.

The grant--totaling $42,742,893--comes from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which became law in March with the support of the Arkansas delegation. The funding will be used by ARDOT for state and project administration, including leave for employees due to the reductions in service or the need to quarantine; operating expenses to maintain transit services; and the purchase of personal protective equipment and cleaning supplies.

"The CARES Act is continuing to deliver help to Arkansas. The transportation industry is facing economic challenges as a result of the coronavirus. These funds will help support the changing needs of transit agencies and ensure Arkansans can continue to use the vital services they provide," members said.
