Wave Transit received a government grant to improve transportation services to people over the age of 65 and people with disabilities. Wave Transit is distributing some of these funds to local organizations to help increase these services. Eligible organizations can be non-profit, governmental, or private businesses; the main thing is that they can provide new transportation options.
Vanessa Lacer, the Mobility Manager at Wave, joined us in the studio to talk about how groups can apply to receive funding through this community grant program. Listen to our interview above for more information. And stay tuned-we'll speak with Lacer in November to find out who the grant recipients are.
The application deadline is Wednesday, September 21. Here is the Project Application and the Program Management Plan. To reach Vanessa Lacer for assistance, contact her by email or by telephone at 910-202-2045.
To provide Wave Transit with feedback about services to individuals 65 and older & individuals with disabilities, take this survey.
