Age Friendly Arizona Seeks Partner Communities to Participate in the Rural Transportation Incubator

Thanks to support from The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation and partners, we are excited to announce the launch of the Arizona Rural Transportation Incubator. We are seeking your help with promoting two opportunities.

We are looking for communities that are interested in launching new and/or expanded transportation services for older adults in rural areas. Participants in the Exploratory Track will access workshops and a peer to peer network. Participants in the Implementer Track will access these resources, as well as one on one technical assistance and a stipend of $30,000 to help them launch new and/or expanded transportation services for older adults. Communities wanting to apply by the deadline of July 18 can access the application at this link or by contacting Nancy Knoche or Amy St. Peter at 602.254.6300.

To support this work, we are also looking for a consultant to advise on how technology can make these services more efficient. This scope of work will also include an assessment of the rural human services transportation system in Arizona. Interested parties can find more information about that here. Proposals must be completed and submitted by July 17, 2019.

Please join us in spreading the word about these two opportunities. We appreciate any assistance you can provide and we look forward to partnering with you on this important work.
