Nearly one million dollars in transportation grants were just announced, impacting many counties on the Eastern Shore. Shore Transit received an $850,000 grant and Delmarva Community Services received almost a quarter of a million dollars in the form of a public transportation grant.
From WMDT’s coverage:
“We use Shore Transit every day here. The majority of the residents to come through these doors, they don’t have their own transportation,” says Joyce Cottman, the Executive Director for the Lower Shore Shelter.
Organizations like the Lower Shore Shelter in Princess Anne rely on Shore Transit. “To get to medical appointments, to get to things that we are trying to work with them to resolve their barriers that kind of attribute it to homelessness. They need transportation,” says Cottman.
