Elin was asked to share the following announcement:  Please help us spread the word about the upcoming Federal Transit Administration National Dialogue on Section 5310 Performance Measures!

 Dear Friends of Easter Seals Project ACTION,

 A good Friday afternoon to you! Beginning Monday, March 31st, Easter Seals Project ACTION will serve as host for a Federal Transit Administration National Online Dialogue designed to gather input on proposed Section 5310 (Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities) grant performance measures. The dialogue will run from March 31 to April 18. FTA will use the information to make decisions about future investment and policies related to Section 5310 providers.

 We invite you, our national partners, to participate in the dialogue and reach out to your members, committees, and state or local partners to encourage them to participate. Please post the dialogue announcement and registration link http://www.projectaction.org/OutreachCommunity/OnlineDialogues/FTASection5310Dialogue.aspx 

on your website, share in your e-newsletters, committee mailings or blogs, Tweet or post the dialogue link on your organization’s Facebook page.

 We want to encourage participation among Section 5310 grant recipients and sub-grantees, Section 5310 service providers, national non-profit and community organizations, state and local agency officials and staff, advocates, and anyone with an interest in transportation service for people with disabilities and older adults.

 The dialogue http://fta5310grant.ideascale.com/ homepage will be active starting Monday and includes a link to a Background page with more information on Section 5310 and performance measures.  

 Thank you for supporting this dialogue, and we look forward to an active discussion in the coming weeks.

 If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
