New Inclusive Coordinated Transportation Partnership Project Issues RFP
The Community Transportation Association of America, with support from the U.S. Administration for Community Living and in collaboration with the Federal Transit Administration and national partners, has published an opportunity for grants of up to $20,000 for up to 20 organizations for a six month period. The goals of the project are to: 1) have the successful applicants document in detail their current work with older adults, people with disabilities of all ages, including people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, in the transportation services planning and implementation process; 2) undertake and complete a six-month project to expand upon their current inclusive planning and implementation work to make it more person centered; and 3) outline a plan for next steps in FY 2014 should additional funding become available for further expansion of person-centered transportation planning that meaningfully involves older adults and people with disabilities. Recipients will be expected to share their practices at the national level through the project’s Knowledge Sharing Network.
Qualified organizations, including non-profit or county or city governmental agencies, regional planning organizations, councils of government and Tribal Nations/Tribal Organizations that are involved in the administration, delivery or coordination of transportation, aging and/or disability services are encouraged to apply by March 20, 2013 and can find the full Request for Proposals here:
