EQUITABLE TRANSPORTATION FUND
SUPPORTING A JUST, CLIMATE-FRIENDLY, MULTI-MODAL FUTURE
To advance just, multi-modal, climate solutions across the nation. We take a holistic approach to investing with equal prioritization of:
Shift to Zero
Fostering just transportation planning, that increases investment in public transit and other mobility options, and reduces Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT).
Building capacity within priority communities and local environmental justice (EJ) to challenge unjust infrastructure.
Examining what equitable transportation access is in your community, increasing capacity to access federal funding.
Building partnerships that incentivize and track shifts to healthy and affordable transportation like electric-powered cars, bikes, and scooters
The Equitable Transportation Fund (formerly known as The Mobility Fund) is a balanced, multimodal approach to transportation investing. Housed at the Global Philanthropy Partnership (GPP), this philanthropic funding mechanism supports community advocates incorporating climate justice principles into mobility policies that promote easy access to attractive, affordable, clean transportation in the urban and rural United States.
Grantees focus on cutting carbon emissions and changing how people get around in priority communities most impacted by racial injustice, poverty, disproportionate health risks, and the extreme weather events caused by climate change.
This fund is poised to support those interested in capitalizing on emerging federal funding opportunities to utilize all tools available for holistic, systemic transportation systems change.
“The Equitable Transportation Fund’s investment in Propel ATL’s transit equity work was transformational. Our success with this project was bolstered by extensive planning on this campaign and pre-existing relationships among coalition members well before this grant period.”
