MassDOT’s Community Transit Grant Program is undergoing some important changes. The program allows organizations to apply for funding to better serve low-income, elderly, and disabled individuals, and the Department of Transportation wants everyone to be aware of the changes, including a migration to an online application.
What sort of changes? That’s a little complex for a single blog post, but that’s why MassDOT is holding training sessions throughout the state. Residents of Cambridge and Somerville should attend an informational meeting on January 31, from 10am-11:30am in Suite 2150 of the State Transportation Building (10 Park Plaza, Boston).
You can find application guidelines and the application itself here, and all applications must be received by 5pm on March 1, 2013. If you wish to apply for a grant but are unable to attend a training session, please contact Kyle J. Emge at 857-368-9555. One additional web-based training session will be provided for applicants that are unable to attend one of the three scheduled sessions.
