San Luis Valley Mobility Access VISTA – Alamosa, CO
This project will build capacity for the San Luis Valley Regional Transit Council which provides transit and mobility services in an economically distressed region of six-counties in South Central CO whose poverty levels by county range from 12.0% to 29.6%. The goal of the project is to alleviate poverty, increase access to health services, and improve the quality of life for the population. The VISTA will assist with the development of a regional transit council, engage with community leaders and elected officials, conduct outreach to underrepresented constituencies, inventory existing services, identify service gaps and needs, develop marketing tools for new services, support and centralize grant writing resources, among other activities. Comprised of six counties and more than 3,000 acres of public land including the Sand Dunes National Park, the San Luis Valley offers towering mountain ranges, flat prairies, icy mountain streams, geothermal wells feeding hot springs and spas, eclectic music venues, roaring motocross and auto races, and historic downtowns.
