Cooperative agreement to a USA private or public nonprofit organization, such as a government agency, community- or faith-based organization, Tribe, IHE, or hospital to improve the accessibility of transportation systems for seniors, individuals with disabilities, and caregivers. Required registrations may take several days to complete.

The Administration for Community Living (ACL) plans to establish a National Transportation Accessibility Center (NTAC) that advances greater awareness, adoption and use of assistive technology and other accessibility strategies that make transportation systems, services, vehicles, program enrollment locations and websites, and apps accessible and responsive to the needs of people with disabilities, older adults and caregivers.  The successful grantee will develop and maintain a website; create and support an Accessible Transportation Accelerator Network; identify, disseminate, and support replication of accessibility strategies, inclusive transportation planning, and mobility on demand transportation system; and facilitate a community of practice to increase access to and use of accessible transportation in the underserved communities. 

ACL will fund one cooperative agreement to a lead organization that works in partnership with national organizations, states, communities, tribal organizations, and the disability, aging and transportation sector partners to form a National Transportation Accessibility Center (NTAC).
