Supporting expansion of the More Than Wheels program beyond New England

This grant supports More Than Wheels (MTW) in implementing Phase 3 of expansion. MTW provides vulnerable populations with the skills to improve financial stability, health, and well being by using the incentive of assistance in purchasing a new or slightly used energy-efficient car. MTW's new scaling strategy is to embed its services in and extend them to local nonprofit agencies and employer benefits programs by delivering long-distance services through technology. Activities to be included in this phase of work are: (1) expanding both in and outside New England; (2) developing a fund-raising strategy to support local infrastructure for sites; and (3) strengthening the internal evaluation system and processes to report on client outcomes. Deliverables will include: (1) geographic expansion; (2) expansion to new populations; (3) a fund-raising template for MTW local sites; and (4) a new evaluation study and identified opportunities for future evaluation work.
