NADTC provides person-centered technical assistance to organizations who have been awarded Federal Transit Administration (FTA) grants, helping build capacity and creating opportunities for learning and knowledge exchange among grantees. NADTC is positioned to collect and share best practices of potentially replicable projects with the larger public by sharing the final grantee reports. NADTC provides technical assistance to the Innovative Coordinated Access and Mobility (ICAM) Pilot Program, Human Services Coordination Research (HSCR) and Mobility for All (M4A) grant programs.


Awarded Grants

Access and Mobility Partnership Grants

Access and Mobility Partnership Grants focused on improving access to public transportation by building partnerships among health, transportation and other service providers. The program supported innovative projects for the transportation disadvantaged that improved the coordination of transportation services and non-emergency medical transportation services. In 2018, there were two funding opportunities under the initiative: the Innovative Coordinated Access and Mobility (ICAM) Pilot Program and Human Services Coordination Research (HSCR) grants. In 2021, only the ICAM funding was available.

 ICAM –  Innovative Coordinated Access and Mobility 

    • ICAM Pilot Program grants were awarded competitively to finance innovative capital projects for the transportation disadvantaged that improve the coordination of non-emergency medical transportation services.

HSCR – Human Services Coordination Research Program 

    • HSCR grants supported innovative strategies in the coordination of human services transportation to provide more effective and efficient transportation services to seniors, individuals with disabilities, and low-income individuals. The HSCR projects addressed gaps identified in locally developed Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plans.

M4A – Mobility for All Grants

Mobility for All grants were awarded by FTA in FY 2020 and were designed to improve mobility options through innovative transportation coordination strategies and build partnerships that enhance mobility and access to vital community services for older adults, individuals with disabilities, and people of low income. Funds under the Mobility for All Pilot Program were allowed to be used for capital projects that derived from Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plans.
