Goals of the Grant
The goal of the NCMM Community Mobility Design Challenge 2023 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 2023 is complete, teams will have designed a solution and determined its feasibility, potential effectiveness, and financial sustainability.
The applicant organization 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.
