Funding Announced for the Transit Planning for All Project
The Transit Planning for All Project announces the availability of funding for community-based demonstration programs.
The purpose of this funding opportunity is to encourage development of an inclusive coordinated transportation system in which people with disabilities and older adults actively participate in both advisory and decision-making capacities. While the intention is first and foremost the development of inclusionary processes and plans, the secondary expectation is that inclusion will result in identifiable and measurable changes in the transportation system that respond to the needs and preferences of older adults and people with disabilities.
To take advantage of this funding opportunity, communities should download both the request for proposals and the grant application form from the Transit Planning for All website. All requirements stated in the application form must be met in order for an application to be considered. Applications must be submitted by 11:59 p.m., Eastern Time on Friday, March 18, 2016.
There will be a conference call to answer questions on the demonstration grants on Wednesday, Jan. 27, 2016 at 2 p.m., Eastern Time. Call toll-free: 866-906-9888; Passcode 2724141. If you have questions about this funding opportunity, please contact Virginia Dize at firstname.lastname@example.org.
