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 Guide.
