Another Success for Broward MPO: $540,000 FTA Grant Awarded

For the second time in less than a month the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization (Broward MPO) secures a Federal Transit Administration (FTA) grant. This grant is part of a South Florida Veterans Transportation and Community Living Initiative.

Broward will upgrade the 2-1-1 telephone and website system to serve as the one-call/one-click center. This project will bring transportation resources into the system that also houses employment, housing food and counseling services information, and build a new Automatic Call Distribution and database system. The USDOT reported that the grant selection process was highly competitive, and FTA reviewed 70 eligible proposals representing $52 million in funding requests.

Since 1995, 2-1-1 Broward has been the community’s central point of entry into the health and human services system. Dialing 2-1-1 is an easy way for people who need help to get connected with the community service providers that can help them. For more information visit
