Texas Health & Human Services Commission — Local Transportation Coordination Models

Local Transportation Coordination Models

Project Goal
Develop the opportunity for a community to shape a transportation system that meets the needs of all of its citizens, including people with developmental disabilities (DD).

Project Summary
Through this project, the Office of Client Transportation Services of the Texas Health & Human Services Commission proposed to develop five local transportation coordination models in Bastrop, Brazoria, Denton, El Paso, Galveston, and Harris counties. Each site would have a local coordinator and local coordination team. Each of these models would provide the opportunity for a community to shape a transportation system that meets the needs of all of its citizens, including people with DD. The coordinators and teams were to develop and implement a plan to assure full access to services for people with DD and maximum use of resources.
