Aug. 31 Deadline for Coalition Grant Applications

APTA invites public transit professionals, including members of the National Alliance of Public Transportation Advocates (NAPTA), to apply through Aug. 31 for grants available through the Local Coalition Grant Program.

Projects should focus on grassroots advocacy efforts that can help achieve specific state and local public transportation goals. With the ongoing uncertainty over the future of federal spending on public transit infrastructure, APTA encourages projects that protect federal surface transportation programs or other additional revenue support at the federal level.

A local coalition can apply directly for the funds, provided it has a letter of support from the general manager of the local APTA member transit agency(ies) and is a NAPTA member, and a public transit system may apply on behalf of a coalition.

More information is available here or by contacting Zach Smith.
