The National Rural Transit Assistance Program (NRTAP) has announced an opportunity to apply for Community Rides Grant Program mini-grants. This grant opportunity is intended to support transportation partnerships that improve social determinants of health in rural and tribal communities. Successful projects will help to reduce transportation as a barrier to independence and health at each stage of life and will increase awareness of transit’s important role in the health of individuals and communities.
Join the National Association of Counties (NACo) as they celebrate National County Government Month (NCGM) by showcasing why "Counties Matter." NCGM is an excellent opportunity for your county to highlight effective county programs and raise public awareness and understanding about the various services provided to the community. The COVID-19 pandemic brought to the forefront, and highlighted, the importance of county government. Since last year, counties throughout the nation have been on the frontline of protecting the nation's communities. Help tell the county story by sharing why “Counties Matter” throughout the month of April.
