‘Transit for All Program’ Offering Free Technical Assistance Opportunity

The Transit Planning for All Program, (TP4A) which is funded by the Administration for Community Living of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is a transportation-planning project that seeks to explore and promote the practice of inclusive
planning.

TP4A is offering technical assistance at no cost to help facilitate the inclusion of seniors and persons with disabilities in the local mobility planning process.

The project promotes the development and dissemination of best practices in
transportation planning inclusive of people with disabilities and older adults. A primary aim of the program is to fully engage people with disabilities and older adults in the transportation planning process by working with dedicated organizations looking to further inclusive planning practices in their work.

While not a direct funding opportunity, this free technical assistance can be instrumental for any community working to become age-and dementia friendly that has prioritized transportation. This also provides an opportunity for age-friendly stakeholders to collaborate with regional planning agencies and regional transit authorities. The technical assistance opportunity does not specify that applicants must be any type of organization or government entity.
