Project RAMP

The Foundation for Community Assistance

project ramp logo

Project RAMP is a community foundation that was formed in 2012 to give financial assistance to registered RAMP users that find it difficult to personally fund their transportation on RAMP. The foundation will give financial assistance to RAMP passengers that financially qualify for the assistance and are approved through the application process.

Applications need to be submitted by September 30, 2021

Who the Foundation Helps

RAMP is the Regional Area Mobility Program, which provides ADA transportation operated by the Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky, to residents of Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties. The fare for the service is $2.50 a ride, which some riders find cost prohibitive, making it difficult to make trips to employment and for medical needs. PROJECT RAMP is a funding program offering financial assistance to cover a portion of this fare.

Community Services of Northern Kentucky

PROJECT RAMP is administered by the Community Services of Northern Kentucky DBA The Bill and Betsy Scheben Care Center, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that benefits the people of our region by addressing the need for improved health, social and educational services in our community. Partnering with CSONK to provide financial assistance to people in our community that qualify for RAMP services under the Americans with Disabilities Act and are economically disadvantaged will allow the PROJECT RAMP foundation to help those most in need in our community.
