Pilot Program for Transit-Oriented Development Planning – Section 20005(b)
The Pilot Program for TOD Planning helps support FTA’s mission of improving America’s communities through public transportation by providing funding to local communities to integrate land use and transportation planning with a new fixed guideway or core capacity transit capital investment. Comprehensive planning funded through the program must examine ways to improve economic development and ridership, foster multimodal connectivity and accessibility, improve transit access for pedestrian and bicycle traffic, engage the private sector, identify infrastructure needs, and enable mixed-use development near transit stations.
- On August 7, 2023, FTA announced the availability of approximately $13.4 million in competitive grants for the Fiscal Year 2023 Pilot Program for Transit-Oriented Development Planning Program. This year, applications with a substantial focus on affordable housing may receive up to 100% federal support.
- On January 20, 2022, FTA launched a TOD Planning Program GIS dashboard that showcases information on awarded proposals and the respective planning studies.
