Alliance for Community Transportation Receives Grant from Tufts Health Plan Foundation
DOVER - The Alliance for Community Transportation and the Cooperative Alliance for Seacoast Transportation (COAST) were awarded a three-year grant for more than $43,000 from Tufts Health Plan Foundation to increase access to transportation in the region. This is one of 15 new community investments totaling nearly $1.9 million that reflect the Foundation's commitment to advancing policies and practices that support healthy aging, including addressing gaps in food access, housing, transportation and community safety.
"Each community has its own unique needs. Tufts Health Plan Foundation focuses resources in communities that want to achieve age-friendly practices that are relevant, focus on under represented communities and engage older people in the process," said Nora Moreno Cargie, president of the Tufts Health Plan Foundation and vice president of corporate citizenship for Tufts Health Plan. "We are proud to support organizations that are responding to the needs of older people in their communities."
