TAVARES — Lake County’s Health & Human Services Division is accepting applications from eligible public and private non-profit organizations for the LakeXpress bus pass program, intended to ease the burden of securing reliable transportation for low-income residents.
To assist these citizens with transportation to their places of employment and local service providers, the Lake County Board of County Commissioners has established and funded the bus pass program. Qualified residents will be able to obtain free bus passes through participating non-profit agencies in order to travel to work, attend doctor appointments, obtain food or other public services.
All applicants must serve low-income residents, disabled persons, veterans or elderly Lake County residents only and must demonstrate a sufficient level of administrative capacity to effectively manage and distribute the bus passes.
The program is offered on a first-come, first served basis until grant funds have been fully expended.
