Green Mountain Community Network, Inc.

The goal is to provide mobility choices for seniors (60+) and people with disabilities through various funding programs helping Bennington County residents remain independent and active within their community. Through the E&D Transportation Program, trips are provided to eligible individuals for cancer and dialysis treatments, non-emergent medical appointments, adult day services, shopping, personal/social, senior meal sites, and employment.
- The committee consists of the following partner organizations, transportation providers(s), human service organizations. Appointment of committee members is by action of the committee subject to approval by vote of the committee.
