Ford Mobility - City:One
Grants to USA organizations, teams, and individuals to pilot test transportation improvement ideas in Indianapolis and Marion County. Opportunity areas include increasing reliable access, expanding affordable transportation choices, supporting residents with disabilities or other challenges, creating comfortable journeys for families, and other interesting, creative ideas that answer the Challenge Question but don't fall under one of these four primary opportunity areas.
Preference will be given to proposals that demonstrate the following qualities:
- Solutions for All: Is there a mechanism for furthering mobility solutions that maximize the full integration of people with disabilities and conditions of aging into the community?
- Equity: Is there a mechanism for ensuring equity in the pilot (for example, by creating services accessible to people of different abilities, or addressing socioeconomic barriers to movement within a city)?
- Community Buy-In: Is there a mechanism for confirming the community buy-in of the pilot (for example, by having a local implementation partner, or by developing a mechanism to bring the community into the pilot design, development, and deployment)?
- Economic Value: Is there a mechanism for creating economic value in the community in which the solution is piloted (for example, by creating jobs, giving an equity stake, or some other mechanism)?
