Innovative Coordinated Access and Mobility (ICAM) Partnership Grants

Federal Agency


Federal Transit Administration (FTA)


To improve access to public transportation by building partnerships among health, transportation, and other service providers. This program provides competitive funding to support innovative projects for the transportation disadvantaged that will improve the coordination of transportation services and non-emergency medical transportation services for underserved groups.

Applicant and/or Project Eligibility Requirements

Only capital funds are available. Eligible applicants are entities eligible as direct or designated recipients of FTA’s Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disability Formula Program, including: State departments of transportation, local governmental entities that operate a public transportation service, or their eligible subrecipients that have the authority and technical capacity to implement a regional or statewide cost allocation pilot. Private entities that provide shared-ride on-demand service to the general public on a regular basis are operators of public transportation and are therefore eligible subrecipients.

Decarbonization Considerations

Increasing public transportation ridership will reduce the number of personal automobiles on the road and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Consider coordinating programs with community resilience hubs and other support networks in preparation of extreme weather events. Vehicles used for public transportation are eligible for purchase under ICAM including electric and hybrid vehicles. If purchasing new vehicles is needed, consider using electric and hybrid vehicles to alleviate the carbon emissions for the specified targeted disadvantaged community.

Equity Considerations

Applicants should use CEJST as the primary tool to identify disadvantaged communities (Justice40 communities). Applicants are strongly encouraged to supplement their use of the CEJST by employing the USDOT Equitable Transportation Community (ETC) Explorer to understand how their community or project area is experiencing disadvantage related to lack of transportation investments or opportunities.
