Funding for WEP helps Door County Residents Get to Work

Grants provide more affordable, reliable and dependable transportation.

$4.8 million in “Transportation to Jobs” grants were recently awarded to Wisconsin groups. $73,383 is earmarked for Door County to help residents get to and from work.

“These grants provide critical support to organizations across the state that helps hard-working Wisconsin families get to their jobs,” Governor Doyle says. “In these tough economic times, I am pleased that we are continuing this successful initiative and further investing in programs that strengthen our economy and help low-income families get ahead.”

Governor Doyle awarded these funds to the Door County Transportation Options Program, located in the Door County Job Center and operated by the Women’s Employment Project, Inc.. Funds are designated for vehicle repair or vehicle purchase loans, “van pool”, travel and gas vouchers, guaranteed-ride-home option when carpooling, and simple adaptations for individuals with disabilities.  There are eligibility guidelines to participate.
