FTA Veterans Transportation and Community Living Initiative II Grants: Announcement of Project Selections.
The U.S. Department of Transportation's (DOT) Federal Transit Administration (FTA) announces the selection of projects funded under the Fiscal Year 2012 Veterans Transportation and Community Living Initiative (VTCLI) discretionary grant opportunity, which was announced in the Notice of Funding Availability on February 7, 2012. The 2012 grant program, referred to as ``VTCLI II'' in this notice, makes funds available to local, state and tribal agencies to create or expand One- Call/One-Click Transportation Resource Centers in their communities. These centers will increase the availability of community transportation resources to veterans, service members and military families and improve the accessibility of existing mobility resources and other transportation information to the whole community. Additionally, they will enable closer coordination of existing transportation services to improve customer experiences and overall efficiency. The VTCLI supports the Obama Administration's priority of supporting America's veterans and military families, as well as the objectives of the Federal Interagency Coordinating Council on Access and Mobility. The initiative is a joint effort of the U.S. Departments of Defense, Health and Human Service, Labor, Transportation and Veterans Affairs.
