NCMM's 2019 Health Care Transportation Access “Ready-to-Launch” Grant Opportunity, supported by the Federal Transit Administration, support communities in taking concrete steps toward implementing transportation solutions to address health care access. Implementation grants of up to $75,000 were awarded to 3 communities.
We are pleased to announce that three communities have been selected by the National Center for Mobility Management (NCMM) for this grant opportunity:
- South King Co., WA: Incentivizing recently discharged older adults lacking transportation to get to post-hospitalization appointments using a transportation credit system
- Colorado Springs, CO: Embedding a transportation scheduling system into clinics to ensure behavioral health patients have a way to get to appointments, pharmacies, therapies, etc.
- Reno, NV: Designing a holistic, wrap-around service for low-income older adults living in senior villages to improve health and well-being, including Lyft rides to health care destinations
