Moraine Township Van Service Gains Increased
Healthcare Foundation Grant Award

Moraine Township is delighted to announce that the Healthcare Foundation of Highland Park has once again awarded a grant in support of the Moraine Township Door-to-Door paratransit van service.  The Foundation has been underwriting rides to medical appointments for low-income seniors and disabled residents almost since the inception of the Township's van service in 2006.

This year, they increased their grant award to $40,000, for the fiscal year beginning April 1.  Currently, the Township operates the Door-to-Door van service utilizing township funds and a $35,000 grant from the Healthcare Foundation.

In making the grant, Healthcare Foundation Chairman James C. Styer noted that "the trustees would like to express their support for the high quality program [the Township] provide[s] to the Highland Park/Highwood community." 

Qualified residents (seniors, disabled and income challenged) may call a dedicated phone line, (847) 432-3000, for 48 hour advance reservations for the Moraine Door-to-Door paratransit van service. The vans run weekdays from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm, primarily to medical appointment locations up to 15 miles away.
