National Aging and Disability Transportation Center Announces Grant Opportunity Funding Innovations in Accessible Mobility

The National Aging and Disability Transportation Center (NADTC) invites applications for development of program innovations that increase accessible transportation options for older adults and people with disabilities and maximize the utilization of FTA’s Enhanced Mobility of Seniors & Individuals with Disabilities (Section 5310) program and other federal funding investments. The grants of up to $50,000 each, which will be awarded to as many as six communities for a 12-month period, support program innovations and approaches that increase accessible transportation options for those groups. The NADTC is an FTA-funded technical assistance center that works to further the availability and accessibility of transportation options for older adults, people with disabilities and caregivers.

Eligible applicants include public transit agencies; councils of government; metropolitan planning organizations; tribal agencies, Area Agencies on Aging; Community Action Agencies; Centers for Independent Living; ARCs (Intellectual Disability service organizations); and community organizations involved in the administration, delivery or coordination of public transit, human services transportation, aging, or disability services. Apply before August 26, 2016. For more information, contact Eileen Miller, NADTC Senior Program Associate at (202) 872-0888.
