Enhancing Dispatching and Transporation Services in Rural Northwest Connecticut

Improve Community Assets

Grant: $14,000

County: Litchfield
State: CT

FCH made a grant to Geer Village Senior Community to enhance their dispatching capabilities.

Northwest Litchfield County is a rural, isolated region of Connecticut where lack of transportation is the number one barrier to health care, especially for elderly, disabled, and low-income residents. Dial-a-Ride provides transporation services for non-emergency medical appointments, for those in need (particularly for the elderly and the disabled) in order to increase access to health-related services, as well as equally important social opportunities for residents.
