The National Center on Senior Transportation (NCST) is soliciting proposals from aging/human service agencies, tribal organizations, faith-based organizations, units of state and local government, public and private transportation providers and other entities interested in developing and implementing innovative approaches to increasing senior transportation options and improving older adult mobility.

Successful projects will be collaborative, replicable, and consistent with senior transportation-related goals of the national United We Ride initiative of the Federal Transit Administration (FTA).

The goals are to:
• Increase transportation options for older adults

Successful applicants will receive grant awards ranging from $50,000 to $90,000 and 24 months of individually tailored technical assistance. Higher or lower amounts may be awarded based on specific proposals.
