Applications due: November 13, 2018

FTA’s Access and Mobility Partnership Grants focus on transportation solutions to medical appointments and other non-emergency healthcare services. The grants will help improve options for people with limited transportation choices and bridge the gap between service providers in the transportation and health sectors.

Funding is available under two programs: the Innovative Coordinated Access and Mobility (ICAM) Pilot Program, which supports projects focused on non-emergency healthcare travel needs, and the Human Services Coordination Research (HSCR) program, which funds research to reduce gaps in services to provide safe, affordable and reliable mobility options to seniors, people with disabilities, and low-income individuals.
