Access to medical appointments, pharmacies, good food, and social engagements requires access that in rural regions is dependent on one’s ability to continue to drive or rely on non-profits and volunteers. It takes imagination, creativity and dedication to maximize our local options.

Goal #1: Continue the free vehicle inspection and repair program for low and moderate income workers using newly identified grant funding after cessation of CDC Federal grant funding in May 2024.   Serve another 100 drivers in 2024-2025 who will have safe and reliable transportation for their work or study.

Goal#2:  Identify funding to be able to continue the Carroll County Recycled Bike Coop that connects local bike shops, Project Bike Tech at the Carroll Co Jail and students at Kennett High School to collect, refurbish and distribute another 120 bicycles in 2024-2025 for transportation and recreation.

Goal #3: Increase the number of available volunteer drivers by 15 in the pool for RSVP – especially for Freedom, Ossipee, Tamworth, Eaton and Madison and for longer distance rides. http://www.carrollcountyrsvp.org/non-emergency-medical-transportation1.html

 

Goal #3: Develop three more town by town listening sessions to learn about preferences and needs of seniors for transportation options.  Include Tri-County CAP, RSVP, and Gibson Center and encourage more volunteer drivers to help neighbors.
