Martha’s Vineyard Transportation Access Program Returns

OAK BLUFFS – Martha’s Vineyard Community Services announced last week that it received funds for the Transportation Access Program (TAP) from the Massachusetts Executive Office of Health and Human Services.

TAP helps residents of Martha’s Vineyard when they have to travel off the island for health appointments.

Started in 2016, TAP provides up to $750 per individual for travel expenses to treat medical check-ups or emergencies. Over 300 families on Martha’s Vineyard have received grants from the program.

The program was not funded during the 2017 fiscal year. Funding will be available until June 30 of next year or until funds have been exhausted.

Applications for TAP are now open. For more information, visit Hard copy applications can also be submitted at the MV Community Services’ administration building as well as the Island Wide Youth Collaborative building.
