Cosponsored with Grantmakers In Aging
There are approximately 10 million people aged 65 and older living in rural America. Transportation options are often limited in small towns and other rural areas, and improved transit access is imperative to aging well in these communities. This webinar taught us from two foundations and a local Association of Governments that have embraced the fundamental issue of rural aging transportation, how they have begun to build and fund programs, and discussed the importance of partnerships in rural America. Speakers included Andrew Levack of St. David’s Foundation, Laura Mason of May & Stanley Smith Charitable Trust, and Amy St. Peter of Maricopa Association of Governments.
