Funding Opportunity Available for Inclusive Transportation Planning Initiative

Mar 26, 2018 | Michelle Shapiro

The Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA) released a request for proposals for Inclusive Transportation Planning grants. The purpose of this funding opportunity 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 invited 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.

Funded by the United States Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Community Living and managed in partnership with the Federal Transit Administration, the grants will be administered by CTAA 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.

Grants of up to $35,000 for a maximum of 20 organizations will be made for a six-month period. New grantees are expected to adopt inclusive strategies that fit their communities and build on learning from previous grant projects. It is anticipated that learning from the new grants will add to the knowledge gathered previously and help to build recognition and support for inclusive transportation planning nationwide.

A teleconference for interested applicants will be held on April 17, 2018. Proposals are due by May 4, 2018. Learn more.
