      The Minnesota Department of Transportation announced today that it received a $1.18 million grant from the Federal Transit Administration to help improve transportation options and mobility for Minnesota’s veterans, service members, their families and other Minnesota residents.

      “It is very appropriate that we acknowledge this grant two days before Veterans Day,” said MnDOT Commissioner Tom Sorel. “This will help us expand needed transportation services for our veterans and their families. The application was a collaborative project and we greatly appreciate the work of all of our partners.”

      The grant is from the USDOT Veterans Transportation and Community Living Initiative Capital Grants Program.
