Transportation to Employment Grants
will support community efforts that reduce transportation barriers and address one of the following goals:
- Assisting individuals in obtaining or retaining employment that can provide family sustaining wages
- Enabling individuals to participate in education and training programs that have a clear pathway for career growth
The Foundation is seeking nonprofit and community partners who are committed to engaging with people with lived experience in developing solutions to transportation barriers. We are open to grant requests of any amount
, and we will evaluate the funding for each proposal based upon its scope and potential for impact. Organizations can request multiple years of funding.
Grantees are expected to actively engage with the Foundation and other grantees to share learning from their project. To support this additional required capacity, grantees will receive $10,000 in support above their requested project costs
