NTI Managing Community Mobility  Class in April 2011

On April 14-15, 2011 the National Transit Institute will hold its "Managing Community Mobility" class here in Ithaca, at the County Library Borg Warner Room.


This is the same class as we had in April 2010.

There are only 10 seats left. You can go to NTI's link to register or you can contact Dwight Mengel. We have slots for seven more local participants.


I know April is the far side of winter, but these seats will go fast, so don't delay!!!


For graduates of the April 2010 class, we will schedule a follow-up Masters meeting to discuss the practice of mobility management later in the Spring.

December's Coordinated Plan Meeting will be held on Wed, Dec 15, at the Borg Warner Room, Tompkins Co. Library, from 10-11:30 am.   

Note: location change to the LIBRARY!!

We hope to see you there!

2006 JARC Grant Reallocation #1 - Proposals Due Jan 3, 2011

Agencies with programs funded with the 2006 JARC Grant are eligible to revise the amount of Federal funding in 2011. County DSS identified  $25,000 in JARC funding (from the CityVan budget) as eligible for re-allocation. A very simple proposal form can be downloaded.


Basically, you can ask to increase or decrease the amount of JARC funding. Explain your reason for the change. If you seek more funding, you'll need to show how you've matched the JARC funds. Provide a revised budget showing the original amount, the amount of increase or decrease, and the new total amount.


Proposals need to be sent to Fernando deAragon by email  before midnight on Jan. 3, 2011, or delivered to the ITCTC Office in the Old Court House on E. Court St before 4 pm on Jan 3.


All proposals will be evaluated and ranked by the ITCTC team with results presented at the Jan 19, 2011 Coordinated Plan meeting. The County will amend the agreements with successful agencies.


Surplus, unused 2006 grant funds will be automatically allocated to the County's Wheels to Work car loan program.  


Please contact Dwight Mengel or Fernando deAragon with any questions.
