Western Connecticut Council of Governments

State of Connecticut Elderly and Disabled Municipal Dial-A-Ride Grant Program (13b-38bb)


CTDOT has completed the FY 2023 application process for the MGP, which provides matching funds for transportation of seniors and persons with disabilities to each municipality. Funding is calculated based on the land area and population of those over age 60. The program has been in place since 2006.

The funds cannot replace municipal support for transportation services. If a town or city reduces its funding for senior/disabled transportation, the grant will be proportionally reduced.
