Michigan $15 Million Equitable Mobility Challenge

MDOT and the Office of Future Mobility and Electrification (OFME) are launching the Michigan $15 Million Equitable Mobility Challenge beginning with soliciting grant proposals to address mobility gaps and improve access to education, jobs, health care, nutritious food, and socialization opportunities. The goal of the mobility challenge is to improve quality of life, while increasing equity and accessibility.

MDOT was allotted additional funding in the Fiscal Year 2024 budget for the Specialized Services Program to prioritize its needs. This funding will help expand the program in underserved areas of the state, particularly for senior citizens, individuals with disabilities and veterans. It also will increase reimbursement rates for the existing Specialized Services Program recipients. One-time funding also was programmed to pilot innovative tools and services to solve mobility gaps that impact equitable access to goods and services.

This Call for Proposals includes two separate programs:

  1. Specialized Services Program Expansion
  2. Solving Mobility Gaps

Applicants must identify which program they are applying. MDOT and the Office of Future Mobility and Electrification may elect to move awarded projects into a different program, if appropriate.
