Transportation Funds are Available
The NC Department of Transportation has notified Forsyth County of the availability of funds for FY 2009-2010 from the Rural Operating Assistance Program. Part of the funds are available to meet the transportation needs of the elderly and disabled. Organizations interested in providing transportation for the elderly (defined as age 60 and over) and/or the disabled should contact Jackie Ijames of the Winston-Salem Transit Authority at 748-3259 immediately. Applications for funds will only be accepted through Friday, July 17th 5:00 p.m.
Funds are also available to serve recipients of the Workforce Development programs or the Work First Programs to support employment. However, funds will go directly to the Department of Social Services and Workforce Development Program. For further information, contact Daphne Taylor at 703-3403.
