The three 2019 Dodge Grand Caravans with Braun ADA Entervan Conversions are modified minivans outfitted with hydraulic lifts and powered ramps, center fold seats and oxygen tank systems, according to Smith.
The grant stipulates that Central Connections raise matching funds to receive the vehicles. Central Connections is asking the greater Middletown community to help raise the matching funds, Smith said.
Last year, Smith said, Transportation Services at Central Connections provided more than 13,000 medical and nonmedical trips, with an average of 1,084 trips per month. Of those trips, 89 percent were in Middletown zip codes, she said.
