With this grant, Easterseals will build a coalition in each of these communities and provide webinars, trainings, technical support, contact information, resources and much more. Through building a strong coalition of stakeholders, each community will begin to discover that solutions shared across agencies will help individuals and organizations achieve what one agency alone could not. As a result, mobility options will be made available to alleviate the difficulty people with disabilities and older adults have in moving around their community.
"The innovative solutions developed through this initiative are vital to older adults and people with disabilities," said Randy Rutta, President and CEO of Easterseals. "Transportation remains an enormous challenge and our ultimate goal is to build accessible communities for all."
Communities interested in applying for an Accessible Transportation Community Initiative grant, should visit www.projectaction.com or contact Donna Smith, Senior Director, Easterseals Project Action Consulting at email@example.com.
