The Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA), with financial support from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Community Living (ACL) and in collaboration with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and national partners, is planning to fund three grants through the Transit Planning 4 All program with a total federal funding level of up to $300,000 per award for an 18-month period.

The purpose of the funding is to weave together inclusive transportation planning, development, and implementation with grassroots-driven mobility on demand (MOD) solutions. Selected grantees will work to fully engage people with disabilities, older adults, and caregivers in partnership with transportation, planning, and human services organizations to identify, develop, and implement mobility on demand solutions that respond to local transportation barriers and issues and test a standard way of sharing trip data to support coordination and mobility on demand. Proposals are due July 31. An informational teleconference is scheduled for June 29 at 2 pm Eastern.
