NCMM’s Community Mobility Design Challenge 2019 Planning Grants, with funding from the Federal Transit Administration, will support communities seeking innovative ways to address the particular mobility challenges experienced by low-income community members for whom a lack of transportation is an obstacle to the pursuit of economic, health, and social well being.
We are pleased to announce that five communities have been selected by the National Center for Mobility Management (NCMM) for this grant opportunity:
- Dixon, IL: How might we increase awareness and access to services to improve well-being for low-income children and their families?
- Allen Co, KS: How might we address the transportation needs of patients with chronic physical and mental health conditions in Allen County?
- Mercer Co, NJ: “How might we provide transportation for the underserved workers living in Trenton and Hightstown and East Windsor to jobs in East Windsor?”
- Washington and Ozaukee Cos., WI: How might we increase capacity to serve low-income (ALICE) older adults?
- Vancouver, WA: How might we ensure residents in both rural Clark County and inner-city Vancouver find transportation to health-related destinations?
