Partner Opportunities

Community Partner Grant Program

Community Partners Grant Program (funded by Measure L) provides an opportunity for Stanislaus County non-profit agencies who provide services to seniors, individuals with disabilities and Veterans to apply for funding to assist their clients with transportation needs. This funding may be used to either expand a current transportation program or develop a new program to meet transportation needs not currently met my other programs in Stanislaus County.

Grant applications will be accepted until funding is no longer available. Should your agency have a transportation need that is currently not being met by any programs available in Stanislaus County, please contact:
