TPB Human Service Transportation Coordination Task Force - Description

The Human Service Transportation Coordination Task Force was established by the TPB in July 2006 to oversee the development of the Federally-required Coordinated Human Service Transportation Plan. The 2006 Coordinated Plan guided funding priorities for prior Federal Transit Administration (FTA) grant programs which the TPB served as the Designated Recipient for: the Job Access and Reverse Commute (JARC) program for low-income commuters and the New Freedom program for persons with disabilities. In 2014, the Task Force oversaw an update to the Coordinated Plan to guide implementation of the FTA’s Section 5310 Enhanced Mobility Program. The Enhanced Mobility program provides matching grants to non-profit agencies, private providers and qualifying local governments for transportation services for older adults and people with disabilities through a competitive selection process. As the designated recipient for the Enhanced Mobility Program, the TPB works with member jurisdictions, transportation providers, human service agencies and consumers to improve coordination and service delivery for people with disabilities, and older adults. The Task Force membership includes public transit and social service agencies from the TPB member jurisdictions, and representatives of private providers, non-profit agencies, and consumers of specialized transportation. For more information on the Enhanced Mobility grant program, please visit www.tpbcoordination.org.
