2024 Rural Community Innovations: Transportation Planning Grant

Published on: April 30, 2024

The purpose of the National Aging and Disability Transportation Center’s Rural Community Innovations: Transportation Planning Grant is to offer funding for communities to develop a transportation plan that addresses accessibility and equity. Planning activities will identify transportation barriers, consider current and future community needs, actively engage older adults and people with disabilities in the process, and create or strengthen multi-sector collaborative partnerships. Ultimately, selected grantees are expected to develop a written plan of action to guide implementation of strategies supported by the community to increase the availability of accessible and equitable transportation services.

Public transit agencies, Tribal agencies and recipients or subrecipients of FTA’s Section 5310 are included in the list of eligible applicants.

The grant is nine months and the dollar amount maximum per grantee is up to $35,000.

The deadline to apply is Friday, June 7 and an interested applicant Zoom meeting will be held on May 9 at 2 pm Central.
