Innovative Service Development Grant

The Florida Legislature created the Multi-Use Corridors of Regional Economic Significance (M-CORES) program, which provided additional funding to the Transportation Disadvantaged Trust Fund to administer the Innovation and Service Development Grant program.

The legislation (s. 338.2278(8)(e), F.S.) directs the Commission to award this funding through competitive grants to Community Transportation Coordinators and Transportation Network Companies for the purposes of providing cost-effective, door-to-door, on-demand and scheduled transportation services that meet the following objectives:

1.    Increase a transportation disadvantaged person’s access to and departure from job training, employment, health care, and other life-sustaining services;

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.
