Mid-Sioux Opportunity, Inc. has teamed up with the Siouxland Regional Transit System (SRTS) of Sioux City, and the Northwest Iowa Regional Transit Authority (RIDES) of Spencer to provide transportation vouchers for low-income families. Eligibility is restricted to persons who are at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. Transportation vouchers are good for rides in the towns of: Le Mars, Cherokee, Ida Grove, Sioux Center, Hawarden, and Rock Rapids. Vouchers are located at the five Mid-Sioux Outreach Offices, as well as all five county WIC clinics.
Funding for this project was supported by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. "We're grateful to be able to provide transportation support to families" says Dick Sievers, Executive Director at Mid-Sioux Opportunity, Inc. "Transportation is one of the issues that rural residents must cope with. This funding allows us to help families get to the doctor or dentist. Things that most of us take for granted." For more information regarding eligibility or to receive transportation vouchers, please contact your local Mid-Sioux Outreach Office.
