Transportation Funds are Available
The NC Department of Transportation has notified Forsyth County of availability of funds for FY 2011 – 2012 from the Rural Operating Assistance Program (ROAP). Part of the funds is available to meet the 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 Settle at the Winston-Salem Transit Authority (WSTA) at (336) 748-3259. Applications for funds will be available through WSTA starting Friday, August 5th. Applications will be accepted until 5:00 pm on Friday, August 19th.
Funds are also available to serve recipients of the Workforce Development programs or the Work First programs to support employment. However, employment funds will be allocated directly to the Department of Social Services and the Workforce Development program. For additional information, contact Daphne Taylor at 703-3403.
