The Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA) today announced it has been awarded $23.4 million in stimulus funding through the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.

The federal funds will help fill anticipated gaps created by decreased sales tax revenue in the Denton, Texas, transit agency's annual budget due to the COVID-19 pandemic, agency officials said in a press release.

The funds can be used for capital expenses and costs necessary to operate, maintain and manage DCTA’s transit system in response to COVID-19, including expenses for personal protective equipment and cleaning supplies. Funds can be applied to expenditures incurred beginning Jan. 20.

The North Central Texas Council of Governments — one of DCTA’s regional partners — is the designated recipient of these funds. The funds will be directly allocated to DCTA as the Denton-Lewisville Urbanized Area recipient.
