Are you a provider of transportation services to Douglas County seniors and persons with disabilities and/or vulnerable citizens of Douglas County who do not have access to transportation?

Are you a provider of in-home senior services?

If you provide either category of services to vulnerable populations in Douglas County, you may be eligible for grant dollars managed by Douglas County through their role as the local agent of funds from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG).

Interested in knowing if you are eligible for these grant dollars? Act now by submitting your Letter of Interest, due on May 23 to Douglas County. The Letter of Interest is your opportunity to demonstrate your capacity to deliver these services to the intended population and become eligible for grant dollars.

The County’s call for Letters of Interest is the first step in the organization’s preparation to apply for grant funding.
