 Local Coalition Advocacy

Local Coalition Grant Program

The American Public Transportation Association (APTA) supports and energizes grassroots coalitions through its Local Transit Coalition Grant Program. Activities funded include both public education programs and advocacy efforts, and have proven to be extremely helpful in promoting transit in communities around the country. The experience has been that a small amount of funding can often go a long way in boosting local grassroots efforts. The 2017 Local Coalition Grant Applications​ are due August 31, 2017.

  • ​Citizens for Modern Transit in St. Louis, MO
