The National Center for Mobility Management (NCMM), supported by the Federal Transit Administration, is now accepting applications for its Community Mobility Design Challenge 2022 grant. These grants will support communities in researching and creating innovative mobility solutions for community members who face transportation barriers in advancing their personal well-being. Grants of up to $25,000 will be available, as well as NCMM facilitation through the entire process. Applications are due by July 15th.
The goal of the Design Challenge is to enable multi-sector community teams to develop promising mobility solutions that are inspired and informed by the results of community research. Communities should be entering the Design Challenge with a clear, well-researched understanding of the needs in their community, not a proposed solution. Once the work of this Design Challenge 2022 is complete, teams will have designed a solution and determined its feasibility, potential effectiveness, and financial sustainability.
Applicants must be a nonprofit organization or a government agency that is able to receive, or be a subrecipient of, federal funding. Teams who have previously received an NCMM Design Challenge grant are not eligible to apply for this opportunity. To ensure a well rounded team, each team must meat the composition requirements laid out in the application as well. This includes having a transportation professional and an end user on the team, in addition to other members. You can learn more about the application process on the Community Mobility Design Challenge 2022 webpage.
