The Department of Transportation announced a $1.239 million grant for the Dallas Area Rapid Transit System (DART) through the agency's Veterans Transportation and Community Living Initiative Program. This competitively-awarded grant will offer opportunities to connect veterans to valuable services through a single, consolidated repository of information.
"I applaud DART's efforts to successfully pursue this grant. This effort, funded in part by DART and the North Central Texas Council of Governments, exemplifies how the North Texas region cares about our veterans, and has a long-range vision for coordination of community transportation resources," stated Congresswoman Johnson.
"We appreciate Congresswoman Johnson's continued support and the opportunity to find new ways to support veterans," stated Gary Thomas , President/Executive Director of Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART).
The DART service area consists of 13 cities: Addison, Carrollton, Cockrell Hill, Dallas, Farmers Branch, Garland, Glenn Heights, Highland Park, Irving, Plano, Richardson, Rowlett, and University Park.
