Pilot Program for Transit-Oriented Development Planning – Section 20005(b)
The Pilot Program for TOD Planning helps support FTA’s mission of improving public transportation for America’s communities 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 Friday, September 25, FTA announced the FY2020 Notice of Funding Opportunity under FTA’s TOD Planning Program. Apply by October 26, 2020.
FTA hosted a webinar on this funding opportunity on October 14. The webinar provided an overview of the program and described eligible applicants and projects.
