FTA Announces Transportation Grant Availability

The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) has announced a grant opportunity for the Veterans Transportation and Community Living Initiative II. The funds will be available to state and local governmental agencies for creating, expanding or increasing access to local One-Call/One-Click Transportation Resource Centers. The money can also be applied to research that demonstrates successful implantation of these projects.

The One-Call/One-Click Centers connect veterans, service members, military families, persons with disabilities and populations such as older adults, low-income families and disadvantaged youth to local transportation options.

Proposals must be submitted electronically through the Grants.gov Web site by 11:59 p.m. ET April 19, 2012.
