Partner Agencies

The member agencies of the Coordinating Council on Access and Mobility work together to promote accessible, efficient, effective transportation options to serve the needs of seniors, people with disabilities, and those with low incomes. Together, CCAM agencies represent more than 80 federal programs that support transportation services. CCAM’s partners include:

A 2012 General Accounting Office report, Transportation-Disadvantaged Populations: Federal Coordination Efforts Could Be Further Strengthened, defines federal programs available for use in coordinated transportation arrangements in Appendix II - Inventory of Federal Programs Providing Transportation Services to the Transportation Disadvantaged: 

Eighty federal programs are authorized to fund transportation services for the transportation disadvantaged, but transportation is not the primary mission of most of the programs GAO identified. Of these, the Department of Transportation administers seven programs that support public transportation. The remaining 73 programs are administered by seven other federal agencies and provide a variety of human services, such as job training, education, or medical care, which incorporate transportation as an eligible expense in support of program goals. Total federal spending on transportation services for the transportation disadvantaged remains unknown because, in many cases, federal departments do not separately track spending for these services. However, total funding for the 28 programs that do track or estimate transportation spending, including obligations and expenditures, was at least $11.8 billion in fiscal year 2010.
