Are you working on a federally funded transit project and interested in supporting equitable development near your project’s stations? If so, consider applying for new, free help from national experts in transit-oriented development.
The Transit-Oriented Development technical assistance initiative, a project of the Federal Transit Administration in partnership with Smart Growth America, is excited to announce that applications are now being accepted for the next round of free technical assistance.
Technical assistance provides new ideas, resources, and capacity for building transit-oriented development, or “TOD”. Well-done TOD takes advantage of nearby transit to create desirable places to live, work, and visit that feature amenities like entertainment venues, parks, retail, restaurants, improved pedestrian environments and diverse housing choices. Local or regional governments with an active federally funded transit project (such as New Starts, Small Starts, or TIGER) are eligible to apply.
To learn more about this opportunity and the application process, join the informational webinar on Wednesday, September 7, 2016 at 1:00 pm EDT. This online event is free, but registration is required. Register Here.
Development near transit can help local communities grow their economies, achieve their social equity goals, and improve quality of life for everyone.
