Innovative Service Development Grant

As part the 2022 Legislative Session, the Florida Legislature authorized the use of up to $4 million in Transportation Disadvantaged Trust Fund monies to administer the Innovative Service Development Grant Program.

The legislation directs the Commission to award this funding through competitive grants to Community Transportation Coordinators for projects that support more cost effective and time efficient services to the transportation disadvantaged. Projects must meet at least one of the following objectives:

  1. Increase a transportation disadvantaged person’s access to daily activities that could include employment, education, medical and shopping, etc.
  2. Enhance regional connectivity and cross-county mobility; or,
  3. Reduce the difficulty in connecting transportation disadvantaged persons to a transportation hub and from the hub to their final destination.

The deadline to submit project applications is May 13, 2022. Please review the Fiscal Year 2022-23 Program Manual and Application for the Innovative Service Development Grant and participate in the upcoming virtual workshops (3/31/22 and 5/3/22). Recordings from these workshops will also be posted on this website.
