Register Now for TrustedRide: A New Approach to Providing Transportation Assistance
Tuesday, May 25 | 2:00 - 3:00 pm EST
Many older adults and people with disabilities need more than just a ride. Some may need a helping hand to walk from their front door to the vehicle, others may need someone to ride with them or stay with them at their destination. Trusted Ride Certified is a model that recruits and trains volunteer “Chaperones” to ride along with older adults and people with disabilities who need assistance to ride. The webinar will describe how this model works in conjunction with different types of transportation and highlight the experiences of two local programs – in Baltimore, MD and South Central Connecticut – that are using this approach. This webinar is co-sponsored by NADTC and Community Care Corps.
Funding Opportunity
The CDC has announced a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for Closing the Gap with Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) Accelerator Plans. This funding opportunity is meant to accelerate state, local, tribal and territorial efforts that may lead to improvements in chronic disease outcomes for persons experiencing health disparities and inequities. Leadership from public health officials and multi-sector representatives are considered essential to the development and implementation of SDOH Accelerator Plans.

CDC will provide grant funding to 20 projects for up to $125,000 each, in support of efforts that will address SDOH in sectors such as housing, transportation and social services. CDC is hosting an informational call about this grant opportunity on May 19 at 3 pm EST. Applications are due by July 6.
