This grant opportunity is funded by the Administration for Community Living (ACL) and managed in partnership with the Federal Transit Administration. The grants will be administered by the Community Transportation Association of America in partnership with the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging, the Institute for Community Inclusion of the University of Massachusetts-Boston, and DJB Evaluation.
The purpose of the Inclusive Transportation Planning grants is to facilitate development of local inclusive, coordinated transportation systems in which people with disabilities, older adults, and caregivers actively participate in both advisory and decision-making roles. Applicants are encouraged to begin where they are, even if they have never been involved in inclusive planning or have made only minimal effort to engage older adults or people with disabilities in transportation planning.
Grants of up to $35,000 for a maximum of 20 organizations are available for a six-month period.
A teleconference for interested applicants will be held on Tuesday, April 17, 2018.
Proposals are due by Friday, May 4, 2018.
