The Mobility Fund is a new matching grant program hosted at the Global Philanthropy Partnership that pairs national foundation funds with local foundation funds to support community-based advocacy around sustainable and equitable mobility. The long-term goal of this fund is to increase access to and use of active transportation modes and public transit.
The immediate goal of this fund is to meet the urgent need for safe alternatives to public transportation as Americans commute in a pandemic. it seeks to support advocacy efforts for: (1) optimizing transit capacity and safety; (2) recovery funding for transit; and (3) walking and cycling for trips that have shifted off of transit during the recovery period.
