VA Expanding Transportation Access in Rural Areas

The Department of Veterans Affairs has announced plans to improve access to health care under a grants initiative supporting new transportation services for those living in a highly rural area (a county or counties with a population of fewer than seven persons per square mile).

VA began accepting applications this month for grants to help state Veterans Service Agencies and Veterans Service Organizations to operate or contract for transportation services to transport veterans at no charge to VA medical centers and other facilities that provide VA care.

The groups may apply for grants up to $50,000 to fund transportation of veterans to and from VA medical centers and other facilities that provide VA care, the department said.
