CCAM Webinar Series: CCAM Program Inventory – HHS Program Spotlight (February 13, 2020)
The Federal Transit Administration kicked off the 2020 Webinar Series: CCAM Program Inventory - A Call to Coordination by partnering with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to highlight some of the 66 HHS programs in the CCAM program inventory.
Personal mobility is essential to the success of America’s residents, communities, and economy. Transportation enables mobility by connecting individuals to jobs, healthcare and services, and opens the door to opportunity. Despite its significance, millions of Americans lack access to reliable transportation due to disability, income, or age. The Federal Government recognizes the importance of personal mobility. Agencies across the government administer 130 federal programs that may fund transportation services for people with disabilities, older adults, and individuals of low income. However, these transportation services can be costly and fragmented due to lack of interagency collaboration. Together, the CCAM partner agencies are hosting a webinar series to increase local, state and federal coordination to enhance accessible, efficient transportation options for the target populations.
- Bring diverse networks together to learn from Federal program managers; and
- Address the most prevalent barriers to transportation coordination, gathered through the 2018 CCAM State and Local Focus Groups.
Target Audience: Grantees of the CCAM Member Agencies
