Health Care Transportation Access "Ready-to-Launch" Implementation Grants
The National Center for Mobility Management provides grants to support communities that are ready to take concrete steps toward implementing transportation solutions to address healthcare access for low-income, elderly, and underserved community members.
The goals of the Health Care Transportation Access "Ready-to-Launch" program are to:
- Assist communities in piloting innovative transportation solutions that help low-income, elderly, and underserved community members to become more fully engaged in economic opportunities, improve their health and well-being, and/or become more integrated into their community
- Test the feasibility of the innovative transportation solution in real-world conditions in the marketplace, so the community-based team can learn where its solution needs to be further revised
- Provide communities with technical assistance throughout the pilot phase
- Guide the team in gathering outcome data that can bolster its request for sustainable funding of the solution
- Assist community-based teams in preparing to seek funding for a full-scale roll-out of their solutions
Funds may be used for activities such as:
- Mobility management activities
- Partnership activities that support cross-sector coordination
- Operations of a new transportation service on a pilot basis
- Integration of technology into transportation
- Contracted transportation service
- Outreach to target audiences and cross-sector partners
- Personnel costs related to implementing the pilot activities
- Meeting, training, and travel costs
- Other direct costs and indirect costs related to staffing and testing the planned solution
