National Consortium on the Coordination of Human Services Transportation

The objective of this project is to provide a forum to identify and discuss issues associated with the coordination of human service transportation programs, and to develop working partnerships among human service and transportation organizations to provide information, technical assistance and strategies to implement coordinated delivery of human services transportation. This cooperative agreement enables the Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA) to support the activities of the National Consortium on the Coordination of Human Services Transportation, in cooperation with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), to carry out research activities, prepare technical assistance materials, and conduct educational services that increase the awareness of human services transportation coordination. The mission of the Consortium is to build a strong network of transportation and human service professionals and policymakers at every level, who understand the issues involved in the coordination of human services transport and how this coordination can be accomplished. The Consortium activities include: (1) providing information and support services on the State Medicaid Pass and Brokerage Activities; (2) identifying and analyzing promising practices and obstacles to human services transportation coordination; (3) maintaining the Coordinating Council on Access and Mobility Website; and (4) developing a comprehensive Educational Outreach Plan for members and organizations.
