Transportation Program Sustainability Strategies
There are several different strategies for sustaining transportation programs that may be useful for
rural systems and providers.
Rural transportation programs sustain funding through:
Federal agencies and programs
Grants and contracts (for example, from local, state, or national foundations)
Contributions from partner organizations (partner organizations can contribute funding, in-kind
time, staff/volunteers, or space for meetings and classes).
Fees collected for services provided
The Rural Community Health Toolkit also provides information about general sustainability
strategies. Additional information about funding for rural transportation projects and systems
can be found in the Transportation to Support Rural Healthcare Topic
