Purpose of Human Services Grants
- Ensure that elderly persons and persons with disabilities gain access and mobility similar to the general population from the use of transit facilities and services.
- Make special efforts in the planning and design of transportation facilities and services to assure elderly persons and persons with disabilities have the availability of transportation which they can effectively use.
- Continue to meet the special needs of elderly persons and persons with disabilities for whom public transportation services are unavailable, insufficient or inappropriate.
- Use incentives to encourage the coordination within communities of existing public transportation services and human service transportation.
- Provide transportation programs for special populations in small and geographically-isolated communities of Alaska where limited resources offer little opportunity for coordination benefits.
