Alaska Human Services Grants provide funding for transportation services that meet the special needs of seniors, individuals with disabilities, and Alaska Mental Health Trust beneficiaries for whom public transportation services are unavailable, insufficient, or inappropriate. Applications from native Alaskan, rural, and small urban communities are prioritized.

Projects should:

  • Ensure that elderly persons and persons with disabilities gain access and mobility similar to the general population from the use of transit facilities and services
  • Make special efforts in the planning and design of transportation facilities and services to assure elderly persons and persons with disabilities have the availability of transportation that can be effectively used
  • Use incentives to encourage the coordination within communities of existing public transportation services and human service transportation
  • Provide transportation programs for special populations in small and geographically-isolated communities of Alaska where limited resources offer little opportunity for coordination benefits

Eligible applicants include:

  • Private nonprofit organizations that are exempt under IRS Section 501(c)(3)
  • Public bodies and Alaskan native tribes that certify there are no nonprofit agencies available in the area to provide the service
  • Public bodies and Alaskan native tribes approved by the state to coordinate services for seniors and persons with disabilities

All applicants must have, and participate in, an up-to-date coordinated public transit-human services transportation plan.
