TP4A – Mobility on Demand Project Conference Call


The Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA), with financial support from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Community Living (ACL) and in collaboration with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and national partners, is planning to fund three grants with a total federal funding level of up to $300,000 per award for an 18-month
period.

The purpose of this funding opportunity is to weave together inclusive transportation planning, development, and implementation with grassroots-driven mobility on demand (MOD) solutions. Selected grantees will work to fully engage people with disabilities, older adults, and caregivers in partnership with transportation, planning, and human services organizations to identify, develop,
and implement mobility on demand solutions that respond to local transportation barriers and issues and test a standard way of sharing trip data to support coordination and mobility on demand.

A teleconference was held on June 29, 2020 to answer questions from interested applicants. The recording of the teleconference can be found here, with the transcript found here.

Key remaining dates for the grant award process are:

July 31, 2020 – Proposals due
September 1, 2020 – Grant Awards Announced

The RFP will be available online at https://tp4all.smapply.io/ where applications are to be submitted, as well as at this link. Copies of the RFP may be downloaded for informational purposes, but only applications submitted through this site will be accepted.

As part of the application process, each community will need to conduct an
assessment of where the applicant community is on the Pathway to Inclusion. The Pathway to Inclusion can be downloaded here.
