Funding Available Through Federal Transit Administration’s Innovative Coordinated Access and Mobility (ICAM) Program

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Transit Administration (FTA) announced today the availability of approximately $4.7 million in competitive grant funding to projects that improve access to vital transportation services for older adults, people with disabilities, and low-income individuals.  

“For seniors, for people with disabilities, for low-income families, transit access isn’t just about getting where you need to go—it’s about dignity and independence,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. “Thanks to President Biden, we are proud to provide new funding that will connect underserved populations with necessities such as medical care and groceries through affordable, accessible public transit.”

The funding is available through FTA’s Innovative Coordinated Access and Mobility (ICAM) pilot program, which supports projects that improve transportation coordination and enhance mobility, including access to non-emergency medical transportation.    

“All Americans should be able to easily access healthcare and other critical needs to live their lives,” said FTA Administrator Nuria Fernandez. “We are excited to provide funding opportunities to improve how local, state, and regional organizations coordinate transportation services to facilitate connections in communities. We are committed to ensuring no American is left out.”

Applications will be evaluated based on criteria outlined in the Notice of Funding Opportunity. Applications are due February 13, 2024.
