Transportation Grants for Rural Veterans

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Transportation Program is seeking grant applications for the Transportation of Veterans in Highly Rural Areas. This program funds innovative approaches to transporting veterans in highly rural areas who typically have longer commute times to VA medical centers. Funding is for up to $50,000 for one year and the applications are due August 5th.

In California there are only six counties that qualify: Alpine, Inyo, Mono, Modoc, Sierra, and Trinity. This could be so helpful for FQHCs that have transportation programs and would like expand their capabilities. Check it out!
