Introducing Masabi's Grant Funding Application Support Program

Every year national and regional governments make available hundreds of millions of dollars to transportation and transit agencies through discretionary grants for innovative fare payment solutions.

However, while funds are made available, the process of submitting for grant money can be both extremely taxing and difficult to navigate. 

That’s why we have launched Masabi’s Grant Funding Support Program.

Run by Masabi’s Transit Advisory Group, the program supports your grant program by taking the lead on applications or working with your internal grants administration staff to maximize the investment and chances of success. 

Masabi’s Transit Advisory Group Consultants are experts in developing grant application strategies with ideation, alignment with an agency's strategic and capital investment programs, and identifying ways to fund or accelerate planned technology advances or capital projects. 

Not only can we assist with your grant application process, but our experienced program managers can take on all aspects of the research grant development and operation, allowing your teams to focus on other mission-critical programs.

How Masabi can help with your grant applications:

  1. Grant Application Identification. We will work with your team to identify relevant state and federal grants that assist in improving your fare payments system, reach out to industry partners or other interested agencies, and coordinate with your staff to write and submit the application.
