Transit Planning for All: Inclusive Planning Impact Grants
Inclusive Planning Impact Grants Request for Proposals Application Due Date: March 18, 2016
The purpose of this funding opportunity is to encourage development of an inclusive coordinated transportation system in which people with disabilities and older adults actively participate in both advisory and decision-making capacities. While the intention is first and foremost the development of inclusionary processes and plans, the secondary expectation is that inclusion will result in identifiable and measurable changes in the transportation system that respond to the needs and preferences of older adults and people with disabilities.
This funding opportunity supports inclusive planning grants in up to eight communities.
This opportunity is Funded by the U.S. Administration for Community Living and Managed in Partnership with the Federal Transit Administration Administered by the Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA) In Partnership with Easter Seals, the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a) and Westat.
Only community based organizations can apply, so folks working within initiatives that may be focused on transportation should consider partnering with a community based organization to create a proposal.
A total of 8 organizations will receive grants of $86,000 for a 12 month grant. The RFP and additional information is found at: http://web1.ctaa.org/webmodules/webarticles/articlefiles/Inclusive_Planning_for_All_Request_For_Prposals_January_2016.pdf
