Current Grant Opportunities

Regional Transportation Coordinating Council Grants
The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) is offering grants to establish a statewide network of Regional Transportation Coordinating Councils (RTCCs) throughout Greater Minnesota. The councils will give transit users easier access to services. MnDOT will work with local governments and other state agencies, through the Minnesota Council on Transportation Access, to fill transportation gaps, streamline access to transportation and provide more options of where and when to travel. RTCCs will coordinate transportation services through a network of existing public, private and nonprofit transportation providers. The RTCCs will consist of stakeholders interested in improving the mobility for older adults, individuals with disabilities, individuals with low incomes, and military veterans.

A grant application workshop will be held Nov. 9 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the MnDOT St. Cloud headquarters, 3725 12th Street North. Interested persons and organizations unable to attend should contact Sue Siemers, Greater Minnesota Mobility Management program coordinator, at susan.siemers@state.mn.us.
