Transportation enables mobility by connecting individuals to jobs, healthcare, and services, opening doors to opportunity. Despite its significance, millions of Americans lack access to reliable transportation due to disability, income, or age. Agencies across the federal government administer 130 federal programs that may fund transportation services for people with disabilities, older adults, and individuals of low income. However, these transportation services can be costly and fragmented due to lack of interagency collaboration. CCAM is an interagency partnership established in 2004 by Executive Order 13330 to coordinate the efforts of the federal agencies that fund transportation services for targeted populations.
