-> REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS - STRENGTHENING INCLUSIVE COORDINATED TRANSPORTATION PARTNERSHIPS TO PROMOTE COMMUNITY LIVING
The mission of the Transit Planning for All project, sponsored by the Department of Health and Human Services' Administration for Community Living, is to demonstrate the value that inclusive processes can bring to transportation. The project announces the availability of funding for community-based demonstration programs. 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 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.
