During its three decades of existence, CTAA has enjoyed working and leading a number of federal grants in the public and community transportation arena.

We bring a unique set of experience and expertise to these efforts, always with an eye focused on improving the provision of transit for all Americans, regardless of geography, ability, age or income level.

Currently, we have four active grant programs at the Association, each generating useful resources, important demonstrations and timely technical assistance.

Transit Planning 4 All

Sponsored by the Administration for Community Living, T4All is an inclusive and coordinated transportation-planning project that has funded a series of pilot projects across the nation, each seeking to increase inclusion in transportation planning and services for people with disabilities and older adults.

National Volunteer Transportation Center

The purpose of the Center is to promote and support the concept and practice of volunteer transportation, which includes volunteer driver programs, shared vehicle utilization, and ride sharing initiatives.

National Center for Mobility Management

The Center’s primary activities support mobility management professionals, Federal Transit Administration (FTA) grantees, and partners in adopting proven, sustainable, and replicable strategies that achieve its mission.

The National Center for Applied Transit Technology (N-CATT)

The mission of the National Center for Applied Transit Technology (N-CATT) is to translate emerging transportation technologies for states and localities across the United States. N-CATT will develop learning and planning resources for rural, small-urban and tribal transportation providers and communities, as well as provide community and state-specific technical assistance.


The Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA) and its members believe that mobility is a basic human right. From work and education to life-sustaining health care and human services programs to shopping and visiting with family and friends, mobility directly impacts quality of life.
