Intercity Transit is accepting applications for surplus vanpool vans. Multiple vans are available for granting to qualifying non-profit organizations and agencies. Applications are due Wednesday, October 13, 2021.
Non-profit organizations with 501(c)(3) status and agencies located within and serving residents of the Intercity Transit’s Public Transportation Benefit Area (PBTA), which includes the cities of Olympia, Lacey, Tumwater and Yelm and their urban growth areas, are eligible to apply.
Now in its eighteenth year, Intercity Transit’s Van Grant program has awarded 68 vehicles to meet the transportation needs of local organizations. Instead of selling them at auction, surplus vehicles were awarded last year through a competitive application and review process to the Behavioral Health Resources, Catholic Community Services, Innovations Human Trafficking Collaboration, Interfaith Works, Sacred Heart, SafePlace, and Thurston County Food Bank.
Application packets are available online at the Intercity Transit website, by calling 360.786.8800, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about the Van Grant program, contact Cindy Fisher Waterhouse, Vanpool Program Manager at 360.705.5829 or Riley White, Commuter Services Assistant at 360.705.5847.
