NCMM’s Community Mobility Design Challenge 2019 Planning Grants, with funding from the Federal Transit Administration, will support communities seeking innovative ways to address the particular mobility challenges experienced by low-income community members for whom a lack of transportation is an obstacle to the pursuit of economic, health, and social well being.
The goals of the NCMM Community Mobility Design Challenge 2019 are to:
- support communities in creating mobility solutions that improve access for low-income residents with regard to these three focus areas: economic opportunities, opportunities to improve health and well-being, and opportunities to become more integrated into their community
- Support the development of cross-sector partnerships that work together on transportation solutions for their community
- Prepare communities to apply for opportunities for funding the implementation of community transportation solutions, such as federal transit funding, as well as other types of federal, state and local funding for which the designed projects may be eligible.

- To provide funding for a limited launch of an innovative transportation solution that provides the target population improved access to health care services
- To test the feasibility of the innovative transportation solution in real-world conditions in the marketplace, so the community-based team can learn where its solution needs to be further revised
- To assist community-based teams in preparing for a full-scale roll-out of their solutions
- To guide the team in gathering outcome data that can bolster its request for sustainable funding of the solution
